The HP Pavilion DV9000 Notebook PC is a reasonably-priced notebook, which functions as most laptops do. The laptop itself is a nice, sleek design and the platform is also decent. One thing I do not like about this laptop is that it gets hot quickly, making me nervous to leave it alone while running. When I wear shorts, it sometimes burns my legs because it gets so hot. I have also noticed that because this device is metallic, it gets dirtier easier and although it looks nice when clean, it looks pretty bad when it is dirty. This device is easy to use, as any other computer, and it's speed is quite a bit slower than newer computers. The battery life of this computer is very poor. I use the computer moderately every day and find myself having to plug in the charger multiple times a day. A benefit of power-saving, however, is that you can adjust the brightness of the screen for when it is plugged into the charger and when it is not plugged into the charger.
