HP Pavillion dm3 spotted and priced
HP’s Pavillion dm2 was one of the first few ultraportables in the thin and light category but came with an AMD Athlon Neo processor and was priced way higher than most others in the category. HP seems to have corrected that oversight with the HP Pavillion dm3.
Aside from being priced competitively against other CULV-powered notebooks in the 13-inch category, HP continued the same elegant design (imagine a 13-inch and thin HP Mini 311).

I’d look at this unit as a direct competitor of the Lenovo U350, Asus UL30, Acer Timeline 3810T, Toshiba Portege 130 and the Neo Edge Z3265.
Comes with a 6-cell battery and Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed. Suggested retail price is Php39,990 at Octagon Computers.
