Customize your desktop with fences
The Pavilion 1203TU is a mid-range multimedia laptop from the dm4 series. It’s not as stylish as the Envy 14 and Envy 17, but still packs a punch with a powerful configuration and solid build quality. The lid is coated in matte grey with a braid-like textured design adding a touch of class and style.
The keypad layout implements a flat-key design with good spacing between the keys. However, the keys aren’t responsive enough and lack tactile feedback. The special character keys (‘@’ and”) are wrongly placed.
The unique feature the dm4 1203TU is the fences app. The fences app creates shaded areas on the desktop which allow the user to easily customize and organize desktop icons by categories. In addition, the user can customize the fences by creating, labeling, renaming, resizing and moving a fence. The user can take daily snapshots of the customized fences and icons on the desktop to restore the previous snapshot or delete the existing snapshot.
The dm4 1203TU secured average scores across most of the synthetic and real-world benchmarks, while seriously lagging behind in the game benchmarks. We feel that the lack of a dedicated graphics card is a major chink in such a powerful configuration. However, the excellent battery-life (three and half hours) in the video-playback test is its major strength. Overall, the dm4 1203TU is an average performer and doesn’t qualify even for casual gaming.
