9 September 2012
Excerpt: I bought this laptop in August for going to college in the fall. Since then, I have not had any problems with it at all. It has 4 GB RAM with a 500 GB harddrive. Running Windows Vista with a free upgrade to Windows 7 (just recieved it!). It works great for just about anything, browsing the internet, gaming, and simple tasks for students (word processing). The CD/DVD drive/burner is external which has its ups and downs. The USB ports are limited; I think that there...
Excerpt: Pro: Small form factor, discrete graphics card capable of watching 1080p movies on an external TV. Decent pixel density with a 16:10 display ratio. Good linux compatibility. Con: Battery life is just over 2 hours on the internet. Processor runs very hot, so the fan is constantly running, and can...
Summary: Didn't expect to find internet radio and tv in it, which is nice since i only bought this notebook for portable web browsing. I chose this computer because it was affordable. Prior to purchasing it, I read in one of the comments that fan is too loud...it is true but it is not that bad. and also that it freezes when playing you tube videos... i didn't have that problem so far. i like this notebook the design is nice it looks elegant.
Summary: I bought this to replace my laptop of five years (Compaq Presario). I looked at a lot of different laptops but you won't get a much better deal. It's beautiful, well built[...]. Only con is that it comes with Windows Vista which I'm assuming is why it's slower than I'd like. Luckily, you can ask for a free Windows 7 which I'm waiting to receive. Oh, and the mouse pad is not that great. If you have sweaty hands, this may be a problem.
Pros: Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display
Excerpt: "The HP Pavilion DV6 has been one of the best laptops I have used for casual gaming. While laptops, in general, may not be able to compete with a traditional gaming PC, the DV6 comes very close. It's capable of running almost all games at medium to high graphics with a consistent FPS. The Intel i3 processor and 4GB DDR3 RAM were capable of running any games I wanted, including Skyrim & World of Warcraft. However, I felt that adding more RAM would ...
Excerpt: "...currently writing this from a HP DV6 and I love it. personally i've always used an HP laptop starting with my dv2 but I found that it quickly lost its speed and wasn't even capable of running a youtube video without freezing, I was really scared to jump back into the HP world but boy was I wrong. I love this laptop I love everything about it, for the price it is amazing. its got a lovely screen and the simplepass( finger print scanner) has actually ...
Pros: fast, simplepass, numerical keyboard
Cons: quality of build, screen size for someone on the go
Excerpt: "...of this range or HP laptop aware of its strengths and weaknesses. I bought the Laptop from Curry's and paid £399.00 with a Laptop case (HP branded one) thrown in for good measure. I found this price to be quite reasonable for what I was getting. The colour I chose was a dark red with some pattern on the outside. The laptop is very aesthetically pleasing with a red shell and a black keyboard with a black mouse pad. The laptop feels stylish and expensive. ...
Pros: Value for money, stylish and fast
Cons: Noisy, gets to hot and standby mode shuts off screen
A high powered laptop that lives up to its name... mostly

Excerpt: "...review is based on the HP Pavillion DV6-6051ea. This laptop is manufactured by HP who are famous for their high quality computers. This laptop does not disappoint, the lid has a brushed aluminum finish with a simple HP logo in the top right corner. When you open it, you are presented with a glossy black 15.6" screen and a full size island style keyboard with a number pad on the right. Between the two is a metallic speaker grille with Beats by Dre ...
Pros: build quality, beats audio, bundled software, built in bluetooth
Cons: two finger gestures, heat problems, fan noise
Excerpt: "...laptop functional. I immediately called HP to see if there was a health hazard and how much it would cost me to get the screen fixed. That call was worthless, the first assistant told me that the CCFL (a toxic gas inside the laptop that powers the screen) would be leaking out of the laptop and that when inhaled is deadly! This person also told me it would be about $200 (125 pounds) to fix the laptop and have it part checked. I was connected with the ...
Pros: very compatible with multiple programs, software and other external devices; full keyboard; webcam
Cons: It is a big laptop; pathetic customer service; it gets really hot
