HP's AMD Fusion-infused Pavilion d1Mz, Reviewed

What began as a trickle -- as AMD finally introduced a shipping version of the long-awaited Fusion platform -- has turned into a steady stream, and we're definitely excited to see APUs, as AMD calls the product, finally making an impact. AMD had played up the idea of an Accelerated Processing Unit for years, and now, it's clearly a reality. Lenovo's ThinkPad X120e, which we reviewed a few months ago, instantly became one of our favorite ultraportables, and now HP has what appears to be a rival machine, of sorts.

The HP Pavilion dm1z is an 11.6" machine, that is a touch larger than the myriad 10" netbooks already on the market, and honestly, we're struggling with what to classify this machine as. Is is a netbook? Is it an ultraportable? In reality, it's probably a hybrid of the two. You're getting the portability and longevity of a netbook, but the power and price of a nicer ultraportable.

One thing missing from this review is how impressive the speakers are - something most people use quite a bit with today's music and Youtube showings.

Got one a few weeks ago, came a month late. I guess they are popular. I was able to get it for 429.00 with two promo codes I scraped up. I really like it so far. Have only used it for light web browsing. I dislike the touchpad but I feel like it just doesn't jibe with my fingers for some reason. Have tried turning on and off gestures and tap to click, I tend to pinch when I try and click. I also miss no page up and page down buttons but really like the keyboard.
