"Awesome all around performance"4.5 starson by mricht2
Pros: Windows 7 appears to run seamlessly. No problems multitasking. Intuitive, but a little overwhelming with all the new features Win7 has (its freakin' neat!). Its a great bang for the buck. The fingerprint reader is way faster than typing passwords.
Cons: I would have liked to have bluetooth as a built in feature for headphone use. The speakers are not very loud, but what can you expect for the size? And as always, software is sold a la carte :::sigh:::
Summary: I love this computer. Anybody that buys this computer that hates it is probably using it outside of what this computer is intended for. As Scott noted: "(The DM4-1065dx) lacks dedicated graphics." Its not a gaming computer, dude. However, it is a great compromise between size and performance. The keys are spaced apart where even my clumsy fingers can hit them accurately, and the screen is big enough where I don't have to choose between squinting to read it or seeing the full webpage. I don't like touchpads period, but the one included is at least usable. Maybe its wrong to compare the touchpad "pinch" feature to the iPod, but its kind of disappointing. At least the touchpad can be turned off. I use a laser mouse. The fingerprint reader is sweet. It means I can swipe a finger instead of entering a user name and a password to log in to the various websites I'm always using for school. I'm not a collector of blu-ray discs so it doesn't matter that it doesn't have it. I feel like for the price though it probably should include blue tooth. That would be very handy. Other than that, some of the standard features in the windows 7 premium software pack are pretty cool, but I don't know anybody who doesn't occasionally use Microsoft Word and I really feel like that should be included as a standard. I am somewhat suprised that internet security still isn't being included as a standard (it comes with a crappy 30 day trial). In general though, HP delivered a lot of performance for the price and I've been really happy with this purchase.
