Pretty good

 

HP quicklaunch is pretty nifty if you want to save battery life.

The Nvidia GeForce Go 6150 is really mediocre.

Surprising

 

Remote, go6250, Numberpad, price (1,000) that quickplay toolbar, lightscribe, second harddrive bay I've hardly seen a laptop with a second harddrive bay.

Failed to quick

 

When I bought the DV9205US, it had a conflict with the web camera drivers and caused the computer to fail to start all the time. Had to delete driver and reinstall. After using it for 17 months the wireless conection disapeared compeletly from the...

I loved the 17" screen.

The wireless stopped working after 1 year. Battery does not last long.

So far.. so good

 

We bought this when it just came out in the market. It is lighter than the Sony vaio we have, better bigger and clearer screen. We have windows vista and upgraded 2 GB RAM. Overall, very satisfied with the notebook. Would definitely recommend.

Very light, big wide screen, nice screen quality.

Very brittle lock system, not well built. It looks like it might just snap and break. Slow speed, had to replace with 2 GB RAM.

HP Avoid

 

I bought an HP dv6171cl in Nov 2006. I had problems recently with the external monitor system, including the VGA connection, and the S-Video. Support from HP was worse than none at all. After eight hours on the phone, sending me on a wild goose chase ...

Not the most expensive computer

Cheaply built, and very cheap , rude, silly support staff

Nice performance but heavy

 

This machine makes a great desktop replacement. I love the 10-key number pad. The screen is bright and clear. Carrying this machine around is a bit much though. Also the battery life isn't long due to powering the large LCD screen.

Happy with what I got!

 

I've had this laptop for 4 months now and am very happy with it overall. I bumped the RAM up to 2GB and it handles Vista just fine. The LCD display is VERY nice and at 17", quite large. If I could change two things they would be to have the RAM max out...

Beautiful 17" LCD, DVD Burner with LightScribe,

2GB RAM is max, right-side Shift key is small

HP DV-9205US

 

For a 17" screen this notebook is a relatively lightweight at about 7 pounds. I like the finish on this notebook because it cleans up real easy and there are no oily fingerprints left on the mousepad. The sound from the speakers is good and this...
