HP dv9096xx

 

We've said it before, and we're saying it again: HP ain't exactly famous for its gaming rigs. But to our surprise, the company has raised the bar for itself with the dv9096xx, a 17-inch movie-centric desktop replacement with a lot more graphics action...

If you’re searching for a savvy blend of price and performance, this desktop replacement from HP certainly fits the bill, so long as you’re not planning to spend too much time gaming or stray too far from a desk (or at least from a power source). To...

HP Pavilion dv9010TX

 

In a recent roundup, we previewed five desktop-replacement laptops with the HP DV9010TX being one of the machines that made the cut. The term "Desktop Replacement"—in case you are wondering what it means—is used to refer to an emerging segment of...

The 9010TX is a master at it's game. 17-inch wide screen goodness, a powerful T5600 Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB RAM, a dual layer LightScribe DVD writer, a HDMI input, Nvidia's Go 7600 graphics processor and an 8 cell battery which lasts an...

HP Pavilion dv9000t with Vista Review

 

The screen is huge and the notebook itself is very slim. Previous 17” laptops from HP were very bulky weighing 9.8lbs, but it's nice to know that the dv9000t is easy to carry when needed. Believe it or not, I actually carry this thing around every day...

Large screen ; Number pad ; HDMI output ; Touchpad on/off switch ; Slim profile give the laptop size

Fingerprint magnet (cloth included however) ; Touchpad has some drag ; Right Shift key is smaller ; Media keys make noise (turn off in BIOS) ; Fans run quite often ; Notebook lid is a bit flimsy when closed

Running Windows Vista Home Premium on this laptop has its ups and downs. As a whole, my PC runs smoothly but certain areas like copying large amounts of files needs a LOT of work. HP includes all the drivers in a folder called SwSetup, so if you ever...

Junk your old desktop and replace it with this big screen multimedia notebook.

Very good performance • Attractive new design • High-res screen

No multimedia control buttons • Needs better speakers

HP dv9000z

 

The HP Pavilion dv9200z laptop is the first Vista Ultimate pre-loaded portable we've had a chance to look at up close for any appreciable time. That in itself is a factor in the review that follows, and we will try to provide a perspective of how this...

Beautiful screen; HD-DVD playback; HDMI output; attractive design

Dismal battery life; quirky 64-bit software/driver issues

The HP Pavilion dv9200z offers everything you need in a well thought out media system.

HP Pavilion dv9000t Review

 

I had been in the market for a new laptop for quite some time. I do alot of digital design work including web design and photo retouching, as well as making art in my spare time. I needed something with a bright, large screen and ample resolution to...

Extremely affordable ; Beautiful Imprint Finish ; Built-in Mic/Webcam ; Unrivaled screen ; Nearly silent operation ; Thin and light for a notebook of its size

Not enough choices for resolution ; Middle of the road GPU ; Dissapointing touchpad ; Fingerprint magnet

The operating system I chose for my system was Windows Media Center Edition. In essence, it is Windows Home with more multimedia options. I have no need for pro and the features included on MCE are pretty neat, especially for a media fanatic like...

Has a designer look Includes dual hard drives and a Webcam

So-so battery life

The dv9000t provides great desktop muscle plus one-touch music, photos, and movies.

HP's Pavilion dv9000t media laptop

HP Pavilion dv9000t (Vista)

 

There's a lot to be said about HP's design: The artistic imprints and the piano-black finish make it flashier than the Qosmio AV660. Its dimensions are thin, too: 15.5 by 11.1 by 1.1 inches (HWD). At 8.8 pounds, the dv9000t is still heavy, but...

Loaded with the über edition of Vista. Excellent HD experience. HDMI port for HD output. Best deal out there for an HD DVD laptop. Innovative remote that fits in the Express Card slot. Built-in remote sensor. Lighter than the competition

Needs an integrated TV tuner. I'd like to see some more options for graphics cards

If you're ready to jump on the HD DVD bandwagon, the dv9000t offers the best playback software and features on a desktop-replacement laptop.
