Review HP Envy dv6-7202eg Notebook


Display Surprise. Full HD display, Blu-ray burner, 1 TB HDD, 16 G

Very good display; 16 GB RAM; Lots of storage space; Blu-ray burner; Good program performance; Good keyboard

Gets very hot at load; Expensive; No OS or driver DVD included

Neither Lenovo nor Asus offer such a good display (strong contrast, great viewing angle stability, etc) for their notebooks.

Intel Sandy Bridge Processors Gaming Performance: Part II


Here we go again. The question "dual- or quad-core CPU?" has been a fixture in our forums for quite a while. Those looking to play recent games on their laptops seem to be particularly concerned with this decision. So, we decided to resolve the issue...

The power consumption levels did, of course, fluctuate a bit, but the values shown below were the ones most often displayed by our measuring device (Voltcraft VC940). While the laptop was idle, the power consumption among the five processors varied...

Review HP Pavilion dv6-6110eg (Llano) Notebook


Low-cost Crossfire. After AMD processors were almost non-existent

High-end, hard aluminum finish; Four loudspeakers; Gaming suitability; Fast hard disk; Good application performance; Long battery runtimes; Low power consumption; Very cool case

Poor contrasts, viewing angles; Crashes in games, benchmarks; Little gaming performance; Cover on bottom can jam

Blue screen crashes in a few games and the 3D benchmarks.

Review HP Pavilion dv6-6008eg Notebook


Not for Sale? Currently, no shop in Germany is selling the new HP

Metallic Aluminum finish; Four speakers; High program performance; Ready for gaming; Fast hard disk; Bottom flap is screw less

Spongy, rickety keys; Flaws in the case; Bad contrast, poor viewing angles

Lots of gaming power in a small form factor. An attractive price.

Attractive design; Very good value for money ratio; FireWire, eSATA interfaces; Docking station available; Mini remote control; Useable graphic performance

Review HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook


Multimedia For Everybody. The dv6 series by the American manufact

Felicitous design; Extensive port configuration; Docking option; Low heating of the case; Good sound

Case is susceptible to pollution; Unpleasant surface of keyboard and touch pad; Strong reflections of the display; Mediocre 3D- and application-performance; High level of noise, even without load

Multimedia-beginner from all brands, first and foremost Acer: Aspire 6530G, 6930G,… but also Toshiba with the A300.

HP Pavilion dv6 Review: A Modestly Priced Laptop That Doesn't Disappoint


The HP Pavilion dv6 is the company's workhorse consumer laptop, with a 15.6-inch LCD panel and a nearly full-size keyboard. When you first see the dv6, it seems thinner than it really is. The gently curved back surface of the LCD housing hides some of...

Very good video playback quality ; Excellent keyboard with a great feel

DVD drive's eject button is tiny ; Speakers distort at high volume

HP's dv6 is a classy-looking (though slightly bulky) laptop with a good mix of features for its price.

HP Pavilion dv6-3013


HP's Pavilion dv6 line targets mobile-PC buyers who have an interest in rich media content. The line ships in various configurations; the dv6-3013 reviewed here is the entry-level version. Unlike pricier members of the dv6 family--which are based on...

Surprisingly good audio playback quality ; Integrated media features work well

LCD's vertical viewing angle is extremely limited ; Screen contrast is poor

The HP Pavilion DV6-3013 is an elegantly integrated digital media platform marred by display contrast problems.
