HP Pavilion dm3 Redesigned to Cut Down on Heat Output

September 1, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

HP has launched a redesigned Pavilion dm3, the notebook PC which was introduced last year. The HP Pavilion dm3, which weighs just 3.99 pounds and measures less than 1-inch in thickness, features HP’s innovative CoolSense technology for better heat management.

The 13.3-inch notebook uses a combination of plastic, glass and soft-touch paint on the outside, and metals that are used strategically on the inside to keep heat away from the hands and lap.

The air vents are repositioned which helps in blowing the air away from the laptop instead of toward the device, which is what happens when vents are positioned on the bottom.

The device can automatically detect when it’s on a lap and control the fans for extra cooling.

The dm3 comes with a 6-cell battery which offers up to 7.5 hours of battery life. This is partly due to the low-voltage 1.2 GHz dual-core Intel Pentium processor and Intel HD Graphics.

There have been reports that a faster ULV Core i3 will be an option as well. It comes standard with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320 GB HDD, 7,200 RPM hard disc, Bluetooth and WiFi.

It also features a full-size island-style keyboard with one-touch action keys and HP Clickpad with an On/Off button. The device is currently available, starting at $550.
