Every week new laptops are released which is great; some are really good laptops and some are poor laptops. The Hewlett packard DV5-1110EM laptop is a good one. The DV5-1110EM is a perfect Entertainment Laptop. With Blu-Ray drive and Radeon HD3450 graphics card it is equally adapt at watching movies or playing games.
Last week we wrote about the Toshiba l300-13s laptop and commented on how impressed we were with it; it was only £399 so this HP needs to deliver a much bigger punch to justify its £599 – to be honest it does it really well.
Firstly it looks stunning and just looks like a high end laptop. It is black and silver with a twist, it is high gloss silver on the keyboard side and on the lid is piano black – this means that the keyboard space remains relatively finger print free. It is also easy to clean.
The HP DV5 1110EM has quite a bit of power at its heart supplied by the AMD Turion X2 Dual Core processor RM72 that runs at 2.10 Mhz. This little beauty also has a generous 3gb of ram so it really is built for multi tasking.
The 15.4 inch widescreen is crystal clear due to it being HD ready. The laptop also sports a blu ray reader/writer drive so it can play blu ray disks (as well as dvd and cd of course). The write speed is also pretty competitive. Laptops of this size usually have small hard drives but this HP has a 250 GB drive; which is plenty of room in our opinion (and if not is has four usb ports so you can easily bolt on an external hard drive at home or office).
The DV5-111 EM packs in a lot of tech and still manages to stay trim – it only weighs 2.65KG so you won’t break your back carrying it around. The £599 price tag may seem a lot in todays market place but trust us you do get your monies worth (and more).
