It's not hard to love HP these days. As the top PC retailer you might figure they would be resting on their collective laurels but instead, they been delivering products that continue to impress while making computers more personal that appeal to both business and casual users alike.

The HP Pavilion dv3000 notebook is no exception to this rule and it's not hard to see why, with its glossy "iron mesh" surface thanks to HP's Imprint technology and its reflective silver interior. Though the dv3000 is not just all looks and no substance as it comes packed with sufficient hardware to compete with most desktops.

The spanking new and glossy dv3000 stands ready for all your entertainment needs.

The front profile is clean, hosting only the audio jacks together with the Altec Lansing speakers.

Located on its right profile is the removable optical disk drive, a USB port, a LAN port and a modem port.

The left side packs more stuff: a analog video out, a Kensington Lock, a USB port, a USB & eSATA combo port, a HDMI port, a 5-in-1 card reader and an ExpressCard slot which also holds the remote control.

Here we see a close up of the 'iron mesh' design, thanks to HP's Imprint technology, which also gives it a glossy outer look and feel.
