The HP-DM1-32xx series have been phased out more than 4months back. The new series the HP-DM1-4xxx should have been reviewed instead.

Thanks for your comment.
As per the Note before the Verdict of our review (page 3), we are aware that this model is "phased out". We were sent the DM1-3xxx instead of the 4xxx by mistake, but figured we might as well review it for the reasons mentioned: it might help those still looking to buy the laptop (whether new or pre-owned), and it's a good basis to review its successor.

Why on earth are you reviewing this now? Why didn't you review it when it was first released almost 1 year ago?

I bought mine then at just over £300 which represented amazing value as commented by all the other gadget / technology sites that reviewed it, and gave pretty good reviews at the time. Of course 1 year on it's not so hot, but then neither is a core duo Macbook Air now.........!

Can't wait for your review of ZX Spectrum!

Have to agree with the above two comments! After purchasing the HP dm-1 4020sa for £299 quite recently, HP deserve credit for creating a windows 7 64-bit laptop, flawless 1080p playback with radeon graphics (with HDMI out), fantastic keyboard, lovely bright led screen and Beats audio... all with 5hour+ battery life on normal usage.
