  • Beats Audio sound technology, good range of ports,
  • Slowish processor, casing feels a bit cheap
  • The HP Pavilion dm4 is certainly styled for its target market -- basically the sort of people who rejoice in the public display of Beats Audio headphones -- and it's a decent workhorse of a device. Don't get one if you plan on doing some intense gaming...

  • Processing power, Good finish, Decent battery life (4 hrs 20 mins), Backlit keyboard
  • Lowgrade screen (poor contrast, inaccurate colours), Glossy screen, Limited performances in games
  • The HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition laptop gives a good level of performance for the money, as well as a nice design and finish, and a decent battery life. However, the audio quality and screen aren't quite good enough to make this a five-star notebook. ...

  • The HP dm4 Beats Edition didn't score the highest ratings in our lab tests, and it in some ways it certainly leaves you wanting. But for under £1,000 this laptop will do most anything you need it to do (gaming aside) with respectable efficiency - all w...

  • A powerful 14in laptop that can handle some light gaming, but there are better 15in models ...

  • Slick red-on-black design, Red-backlit keyboard, Dedicated graphics, Decent ergonomics, Strong battery life, Good speakers
  • Average screen, Overpriced, Slow hard drive, No Blu-ray option
  • If you were planning on getting a pair of Beats Solo HD headphones, HP's Pavilion dm4-3000ea Beats Edition is worth considering for its style, good speakers, comfortable ergonomics, decent battery life and unique red keyboard backlighting. However, if you...

  • Beats design upgrade, Beats audio sounds, Great multimedia all rounder
  • Price hike not great value, Weak multi touch trackpad, Too much bloatware
  • Beats audio technology has really taken off and, what we once thought was a dodgy marketing partnership with Dr Dre, is actually turning out to be superior audio for laptops. T3 already rates Beats by Dre headphones and the same care and attention ha

  • Mediocre keyboard
  • The HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition delivers great sound and performance with an elegant design. Despite the keyboard issues and integrated graphics performance the HP Pavilion dm4 Beats edition offers a lot of value. The HP software extras and great...

  • Stylish red and black design, Excellent CPU and HDD/SSD performance all-around, Rubber texture, Quiet fan noise and optical drive, Low temperatures when stressed, High resolution matte display, Backlit keys
  • Starting price, Plastic case, Fingerprint magnet, Shallow keys, Small touchpad, Tight port placement, Average outdoor usability
  • Drawing a final impression on the HP dm4-3090se is difficult. On the positive side, the notebook reflects its price reasonably well in key areas including the sleek designs, rubber padding, red backlit keys, high resolution display, respectable sound outp...

  • Fantastic audio quality, Good performance at this price point, Appealing design, Lots of value,
  • Difficult to see the keyboard in the dark (without the backlight), Washed out display,
  • If you're in the market for a 14-inch multimedia notebook, we urge you to consider the HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Edition. Marketed by HP as the ultimate audio noteook, it really was able to deliver exceptional audio quality - even using typical tiny earbuds. The dm4 isn't just about the audio, though ... our review unit was also able to deliver good performance at this price point. It can definitely
