Excerpt: Отечественный потребитель знаком с ноутбуками компании Hewlett-Packard в основном по линейке Probook. Аппараты эти, надо сказать, вполне хороши и современны, однако внешний вид их, что называется, на любителя. А ведь у HP за океаном имеется совершенно другая линейка портативных компьютеров Pavilion, представители которой гораздо красивее и в плане начинки ничуть не хуже. Сегодня мы предлагаем познакомиться с одной из таких моделей — HP Pavilion dv6-2021er.

Summary: Not for Sale? Currently, no shop in Germany is selling the new HP Pavilion dv6 in our test configuration, although both its price and hardware seem very interesting. The HD 6770M graphic chip of the notebook promises gaming power. In addition, the quad-core CPU and 8 GB RAM should deliver great performance. Still, is it worth the wait?
Pros: Metallic Aluminum finish, Four speakers, High program performance, Ready for gaming, Fast hard disk, Bottom flap is screw less, Strong laptop graphic available starting from 600 Euros.
Cons: Spongy, rickety keys, Flaws in the case, Bad contrast, poor viewing angles
Excerpt: HP Pavilion laptops are very popular amongst multimedia and home users, be it entry-level, mainstream or high-end, there’s something for everyone. But again, the truth is that they are slightly more expensive than most ‘non-traditional’ laptop makers. However, this time around, perhaps owing to the stiff competition, HP has something that offers very good value for money, while maintaining HP’s style factor, their Pavilion DV-6 series.
Summary: The Pavilion dv6-6116tx will cost you Rs.38,897, which is not too bad for a mainstream multimedia notebook. Granted, it’s a bit underpowered, compared to the competition at the same price point, but then not many notebooks in this price bracket are built as well as the HP. If you aren’t going to be playing too many games or intensive 3D applications, then you won’t be disappointed with the dv6. Mind you, you’ll have to sacrifice USB 3.0 as well.
