Summary: I have had this laptop since Black Friday back in 2009 and it is still going strong! I have since put a new HDD in it (for additional storage, not hardware issues) and have upgraded it to Windows 8.1. It is still fast and still handles everything I throw at it. I run Adobe Acrobat, Publisher, Outlook, and multiple other programs all at once and it still handles it like a champ!
Pros: Sturdy laptop with a great keyboard. Hardware is still adequate to handle tasks to this day.
Cons: Battery life, hard to get drivers for it now
Summary: I wish that I could give more than 5 stars. It worked just fine out of the box. It was for my wife who was afraid of computers after her brain surgery. I helped her get started and after 10 minutes, she took to it like a duck takes to water. It was very easy to operate, had every thing she or I wanted. I would recommend this one to anybody. Great buy.
Summary: The Pavilion dv6-6c35dx is amazingly fast. Quad core can handle about anything you can throw at it. Beat sound is outstanding. There is the 1 flaw inherit in the D6 line: horinzontal line flicker. This is caused when the display goes to sleep, but can be temporarily cured by restarting the machine. It also helps to use a screen saver and disable turning screen off. Very bright screen. Plays DVD's to your heart content.
Summary: hard drive failed! I never even really used it. then one day it just stopped working and telling me it didn't recognize and it boot system failed. a horrible company hp and I will never ever buy another computer because now I am stuck with a computer I paid hundreds of dollars for that doesn't work. I will never ever trust some one telling me hp is great, I will go with my instinct which is to avoid their laptops.
Summary: I so love Hp! This laptop is the bees knees. It is just AWESOME! Works wonderfully. It has an beautiful and sleek design. Beautiful display monitor and easy to use keyboard. High powered! Extremely efficient! Would recommend to anyone who wants a Great computer.
Summary: I have had this computer for almost 4 years. Today I just found out my computer is done because of the motherboard. 4 years for a computer is great! I had to sent it back one after withthin the first year when it was under warranty. That was the only time I had to send it back . My next computer will probably be HP because it has lasted so long.
Excerpt: The Pavilion dv6-3120us is a laptop released by HP. To put this review in some context, I do not personally own this laptop , but I have used my friend’s on numerous occasions and have had enough experience with it to see what I personally like about it and what I dislike. Also, I personally own an HP g4-1016dx laptop which is similar in some aspects, but I could basically summarize as being a more basic version of the model that I’m currently reviewing.
A discontinued, but fairly new, HP model at a very good price!

Summary: In order to evaluate the machine's potential, it was necessary for me to wipe the hard drive and reload Windows 7 in order to remove previously installed apps and factory bloatware. That done, it seems to be a heck of a unit. I believe HP replaced the Pavilion line-up with the Envy models in 2012. Thus, in terms of bidding, the Pavilions are not nearly as competitive, as the replacement model (the Envy).
