Solid Value All Around


Over all, I'm pretty satisfied with this machine. Looks very sleek yet sturdy. Good performance. Plays most games at good-enough settings. Pretty good value for a home/school/business machine.

Pretty nice machine. Runs my biz applications super fast. Runs most MMOs (except for AoC, of course). In fact, I'm using this laptop to level all my toons in Warhammer Online. Runs OK on "balanced" settings, and runs very smooth on "performance"...

Windows Vista 64 (ugh!). Loads and loads and loads and loads and loads of HP-included bloatware. Took me north of three hours to wipe all of that off. A tad slower than its Turion X2-based sister

HP Pavilion dv6936us NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T5750(2.00GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 250GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS


When i looked for a laptop i wanted something that is average out on everything: Games, School, and Entertainment use. This is a good for anyone who wants something that is average all around. Other then that if you do want something that can handle...

Nice outside style, it is not plain at all ; Decent speed ; Pretty good Battery life (if in power save mode about 4+ hours on this) ; Not bad for a first laptop ; Using it now

Not the best GFX card at all, newer ones are 8800 GS and up ; Heats up after about 3 hours or so ; Although both cons are typical for a laptop

this laptop =)


great little toy, i payed about xxx dollars due to military discount and rebates, which i have to send in now dang soon. <=- love the heat sensetive strips up top for media control, the remote works well. looks great, i wish i could use this monitor...

It's fast, uses a low amount of power, and has pretty decent life time, on the battery power ; not to say its indefinite it runs low gaming in round 45minutes its practically dead ; its light, looks great and plays games, runs crysis on low, everything...

reduced battery life due to dual core, and display brightness, quickly adjustable, so not really a con. always underclocked to around 900mhz unless running many apps. not realy a con , wise to save battery
