HP Pavilion dm4t-1100 review

I had the chance to test a new HP Laptop. The configuration was :

HP Pavilion dm4t Entertainment PC
• Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
• Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-640M Dual Core Processor (2.8 GHz, 4MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 3.46GHz
• Intel(R) HD Graphics [HDMI, VGA]
• FREE Upgrade to 4GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)
• Microsoft(R) Office Starter 2010
• No additional security software
• 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery (standard) – Up to 6.25 hours of battery life
• 14.0″ diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView LED Display (1366 x 768)
• FREE Upgrade to 500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
• SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support
• HP TrueVision Webcam and Fingerprint Reader

Here are my findings:-


Pros:

  2. Thin
  3. Good battery life
  4. Many reviews complained about resolution but I was happy with the max resolution  (1366 x 768)
  5. Excellent HP TrueVision camera 

Cons:

  1. Comes with 4 partitions : Boot, C, Recovery, System
  2. Packed with lots of HP software and utilities
  3. Bloated Windows 7 system that takes a long time to clean
  4. Low quality sound and low sound level
  5. It is very difficult to use th mouse pad. Not compatible with Linux systems
When I talked to HP customer care here is what they had to say :-
We recently received the feedback you filled out and returned to us via the customer satisfaction survey. I assure you that your concerns are important to us.  Your feedback indicated you were not happy with all the extra software that was included on your computer.  This is standard on all of our computers and we do not have the capability to ask that the software not be installed.

I do apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused you.

Sincerely,
Paulette
Customer Relations Team
