HP Pavilion dv6000t with Core 2 Duo Review

 

Second, every time I glanced at the Most Popular Laptops column on the left-hand side of the NotebookReview.com home page, I saw that the dv6000t was at the top, outperforming the number-two choice by a factor of two or better, and this has been true...

Excellent performance ; Above average looks ; A fine LCD ; Dedicated graphics processing ; Comfortable keyboard ; Stays reasonably cool and quiet ; No obvious build weaknesses

No high resolution options ; Glossy chassis requires a lot of wiping to keep fingerprint-free ; Battery life is around 2 hours ; Some screen rippling when LCD cover is firmly pressed

Yes, there was a lot of junk software, as is standard on consumer-oriented machines, but performance was always outstanding, startup and shutdown were clean, End Task was never required, no software ever stopped responding, and there were no crashes. I...

The HP Pavilion dv6000z is a new mid-sized 15.4 notebook from HP. It is designed to replace the dv5000z. It comes with either the AMD Sempron or Turion64 X2 Processors. It is a DTR that can occasionally travel aimed at multimedia notebook users with...

Attractive Look Decent Performance Scratch Resistant Casing Good Sound Bright Vivid Screen A Wealth of Connection Options Silky Smooth Touchpad and Buttons

Poor Screen Protection Malfunctioning Touchpad No Screen Latch Bloatware Galore

The HP dv6000z has lots to recommend about it. It has a very attractive look with HP's new Imprint Finish. The Turion64 X2 provides decent performance and multitasking. It has all the connection one could ask for and has a marvelous glossy screen. The...

The Pavilion dv6000t is one of the best entertainment notebooks around.

Fantastic screen, comfortable keyboard

Short battery life

This high-style machine has a beautiful, high-resolution screen and a comfy keyboard, but its battery life is short.

With the Intel Core 2 Duo inside, the HP dv6000t gets a performance boost.

HP Pavilion DV6000 and DV9000 laptops

 

The 15.4 and 17-inch iterations of HP's consumer-centric Pavilion line of laptops have gotten another update from two less-than jaw dropping, at least performance-wise, machines. Both the DV6000 and DV9000 come out of the box with an ExpressCard slot,...

HP Pavilion dv6000t (Intel Core 2 Duo)

 

The dv6000t is part of HP's chassis redesign and is draped with imprints that are unique to the company's Pavilion and Compaq lines. The subtle, wavy lines are inspired by Japanese rock gardens, and the piano-black finish captures your attention (as...

Cool chassis. Zen-inspired design. Faster notebook than the AMD version. Two headphone ports

Meager battery life. Attracts a fair amount of fingerprints

You'll get a fast media machine out of the HP Pavilion dv6000t thanks to the new mobile Intel Core 2 Duo processor. All you need is to upgrade the RAM and stay close to an outlet.

HP Pavilion DV6000z

 

Battery life aside, the DV6000z is a complete package of performance and looks.

Good application performance; multimedia features to spare; bright display; high-quality build, looks

Mediocre battery life

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

HP Pavilion DV6000t

 

The HP Pavilion DV6000t is kind of like having a sporty SUV. It's an eye-catching machine that's fun to drive, but packs enough engine power to do a lot of work as well.

While this PC seems mostly configured for fun, the processor and memory combination give you enough elbow room for office apps. The Core 2 Duo, according to Intel, offers twice the multi-tasking power while using 28 percent less energy than the Core...
