Starting at $549, the HP Pavilion dm3 aims to be an affordable Windows 7 thin-and-light laptop for those who don't want a thicker (and more tricked-out) machine, yet still want to accomplish tasks without feeling limited to Netbook-style performance.
The HP dm3 is categorized as a thin-and-light, but at first glance it doesn't appear to be significantly thinner than the new polycarbonate white MacBook. This is a successor to the dv2 in spirit, HP's thin-and-light that we reviewed back in the spring.
HP will announce some new laptops tomorrow -- oh wait, thanks to the wonder of the Interwebs, you can see the HP ProBook 5310m and Pavilion dm3 now
Supersleek and ultracompact, the SC-DM3 is an excellent bedroom kit, particularly for style-conscious consumers.
