Default Witness The Power of Fusion: HP's Pavilion dm1z Laptop Unboxed

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1301936666.usr1.jpg" /></p><p>Above is part one of an unboxing and first impressions video of the&nbsp;<a href="http://is.gd/ibEuUZ" target="_blank">HP Pavilion dm1z laptop</a>&nbsp;[affiliate]. It was one of the first laptops to ship using the new&nbsp;<a href="http://sites.amd.com/us/fusion/apu/Pages/fusion.aspx" target="_blank">AMD Fusion APU</a>. It features an AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 (1.6GHz, 1MB L2 Cache) and an AMD Radeon HD 6310M Discrete-Class Graphics chip for the GPU. This model I purchased from HP came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 3 GB of RAM, a 320 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a six-cell battery, an 11.6 inch display (1366 x 768 resolution), a Webcam with integrated microphone, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth. It has no internal CD/DVD drive: you need to buy an external, USB-based drive to load CDs or DVDs. Part two after the break.&nbsp;</p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/c_o4CuorPIo&amp;feature=channel_video_title&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/c_o4CuorPIo&amp;feature=channel_video_title&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p><MORE /></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/zq57ZsDRsOs&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/zq57ZsDRsOs&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Got questions about the dm1z? Fire away! My review will be coming in a week or two, but here's a sneak peek: I've been using the dm1z quite a bit over the past month, and I'm extremely impressed with the performance of the hardware for the price. The combination of the better-than-Atom CPU performance, the solid GPU, and the excellent battery life - wait until you see the test results - mean <a href="http://is.gd/ibEuUZ" target="_blank">I can recommend it highly</a> before I even publish my full review.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates&nbsp;</em><em><a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a></em><em>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.
