HP Pavilion DM1At CES 2011, Molly Wood and Dan Ackerman check out the HP Pavilion DM1, an ultralight 11-inch laptop that uses an AMD Fusion processor.
Let's all look at an advanced, but not expensive stuff, which is the great basic use computer. This is the HP Pavilion DM1. It's one of the first laptops to use that new AMD Fusion kind of platform, which they call an APU instead of a CPU, an advanced processing unit instead of a central one because they combine, you know, better than traditional onboard graphics with a regular CPU and that makes a low cost laptop. It's only a little bit more expensive than a netbook, but still can do things like play World of Warcraft or play 1080p, you know, high definition video, which a lot of low-powered computers really struggle with and like a lot of other recent HP systems, it's like kind of this big touch pad here, it's got the chiclet-style keyboard. This is an 11-inch laptop, which is kind of my new favorite size. You know, it's big enough compared to the 10-inch netbooks and it's actually practical to use. If not all day, a big chunk of the day, I've running around here with one of these, but they're still pretty inexpensive. Not as expensive whenever you said things called ultraportables that were like 12-inch laptops, they were like $2000. -Yeah. -Right, tonight you get pretty much the same thing from again 450 bucks and that is the HP Pavilion DM1 and that's one of my favorite, just all around useful laptops. -That's not only useful, but attractive at that price. -It's certainly is and you're go to see that AMD platform and a lot of 11-inch reasonably priced laptops coming out this video.
