Excerpt: Well, what can i say about this laptop. It has almost everything. Intergrated Wireless (102.11 a/b/g) 100MBps LAN Intergrated Microphone (in Screen Border) 3 USB Ports Windows Vista Compatible 1GB RAM 128MB Onboard Graphics 1.6 MHz Intel Centrino Duo Processor 100GB SATA Hard Drive I can do pretty much anything on it.
Summary: Did not mention it came w windows 7 and missing all the Microsoft Office word tools like word, excel, access, etc. Also missing drivers for wifi and others so i cannot connect to wifi or wireless printer. Laptop looks good, not too scratched for its age and shipping was timely. But i have to spend more $$$ fixing issues that i shouldn't be dealing with. Ohh and battery does not hold charge.

Summary: There's a reason why there are so many repair services for the motherboard of this and the full spectrum of HP DV6000 to DV9000 laptops made by HP/Compaq. These motherboards and/or the laptops should have been recalled by HP. They do not dissipate heat well and the GPU often requires a complete re-solder (reballing or reflowing). Short of buying a new replacement board (not a good idea either even if you can still find one), I recommend avoiding these few models.
Summary: This laptop is awsome!!! got them at a good price on ebay, I own 2 of the "hp pavilion dv6000"! the special edition (white) and so far I'm very pleased with them. I have dell, gateway, and the few hp's ... and hp is still my fav. You can't go wrong with this pc! If your thinking of getting it, I'd tell you...

Summary: OMG!!!! Love this notebook!!! My husband and I both have the HP Pavilion dv6000, and would not trade these for any others. They are durable and very dependable. Very fast computer and the speakers sound soooooooooo good! I will never buy another brand again. I had a Sony Vaio before we purchased the HP.
