The HP dv1000 is one of HP's most basic laptop models, and it is what I am currently writing this review on. The dv1000 is billed as an "entertainment PC, " and includes entertainment buttons built into the body, such as quick buttons for DVD and music programs and play/forward/back buttons. Also in the external hardware are three USB ports, a multi-card reader, Ethernet ports, a card slot, a Firewire port, and various video outputs. It also has a compact DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive built in.
As far as performance, the dv1000 is a fairly low-end machine, especially since mine is now over two years old. I've found that it works fine for things like word processing, Firefox, and DVDs and music. Don't expect to do any high-end gaming, however. I've also found it quite heavy: I don't know the exact weight, but it gets tiring to lug it around. The dv1000 is a competent entry-level notebook, but look elsewhere if you need to run anything intensive.
