My impressions of HP dm4-3050us (14.0-inch screen) laptop after a few weeks use:
Things I like:
First, is definitely the processor, it has a 2.5GHz processor and it’s the best processor which I can find in a 14 inch screen with this price.
My previous laptop had a little hefty CPU, but this HP dm4-3050us (14.0-inch screen) laptop is in a better class.
It also features the new Turbo boost technology that can boost up to 3.1GHz.
Second is the RAM, it comes with 6GB of RAM, 6GB is certainly a very good amounts of memory, if you come from 1GB or 2GB RAM laptop, you will be flying with this laptop.
This 6GB RAM laptop beats other 14 or 15 inch laptops with almost similar price range.
Third is the 720GB, it’s definitely more than enough.
Next is appearance, as I mentioned, this laptop is slim, lightweight, and has a nice color, what impresses me is the ability to keep cool after a long use everyday.
Same goes with the battery life, after doing my daily job the whole day, and surfing videos on YouTube, I get a pretty good battery life, about 6-7 hours.
To be honest, I run heavy computing tasks, like video calling, editing videos, and playing games, things like that, and I have barely notice the temperature rising to more than 54.
The next thing I like is the 14 inch monitor, I have had a 13.3 inch and 15 inch laptops previously, and the 14 inch screen size is just perfect for me, portable, and not to small to do my daily computing tasks.
There is Intel HD Graphics 3000, and with 6GB of RAM, you can easily run anything with good resolution, and get the most out of it.
Lastly, the sound quality is brilliant, HP laptops are known with its beats Audio, so listening musics without using headphones is still producing good audio.
This laptop doesn’t have a backlit keyboard, which is already expected with the price point. But typing in the dark is nightmare, so it’s my minor drawback with this machine.
Overall, this HP dm4-3050us (14.0-inch screen) laptop is easily the best machine I’ve had, flawlessly running everything that I need without issue at all. If you are searching for a budget laptop with a top line specs, i5 Intel processor, 720GB HDD and 6GB of RAM, this is indeed a very good choice.
