"If you placed them side by side, you wouldn't realize that the 2009 and 2010 HP Pavilion dm3t shared the same name. That's because HP completely redesigned its 13-inch consumer notebook, making it thinner, lighter, and faster."
What a difference a (model) year makes. Thinner, lighter and faster indeed. The redesigned dm3t notebook offers soft-touch surfaces, a backlit chiclet keyboard, very good speakers, an Intel Core i3 processor, 3GB RAM (max 8GB), 320GB 7200 RPM hard drive, 13.3-inch display with 1366x768 resolution, about 4-pounds, over 5 hours of battery life, and $400 less than a MacBook. Prices start at $549 from HP, with estimated build date being late December 2010. Way to go HP!
