The webcam is very good as well. I was surprised how well it works in low light situations. You can see perfectly!
The only thing I dislike about the computer is the mouse. But you're gonna hear that from the majority of people with a dv6 or similar model. (I bought an external mouse to fix the issue). It's hard to press down when you are trying to drag something. But when you are just browsing the internet then it is fine because I just tap it. I like how it has a mouse lock. You tap twice the small circle in the upper left hand corner and it's locked. Do the same to unlock it.
Also, what I didn't like at first, but now I don't mind, is the keyboard. It has an extra set of keys on the left hand side making it kind of confusing to know where your fingers are. At first I was thinking about returning it but then I got used to it. The keys feel great, well at least to me.
In my opinion you should check out this laptop in store first to see if you like the mouse and keyboard and such.
Overall, this is a great machine (besides the mouse of course). If you think you can look past that flaw then this would be a great product for you at a great price!
BTW- I didn't buy from Amazon (It was $699 at the time). I'm not sure how great Amazon is with computer products. I bought it from office max for $549 on 2/4/11. But they're most likely sold out by now. If you want a cheaper price than amazon, which I recommend, go to HP.com or office depot. Which are both $599.
HP quality control is poor. They appear to have reached a corporate decision to send out defective machines and then repair them under warranty. This allows them to sell what would ultimately be "refurbs" as full price machines. They would have to repair them anyway, but this way they capture a higher price. I am not an HP basher. Of the half dozen laptops in my home, three are HP products. I am running four HP printers. HP until now had been my preferred brand.Read more ›
***** I received this as a birthday present and was technically my first laptop. This review is about the key things you should note about the computer. This is my first review. *****
The screen on the HP Pavilion dv6 can get VERY bright. It can also get very DARK if you are in a position where there is a lot of light coming in the room. I also admire that the laptop has the option of customizing the amount of energy the computer gives off. There are also brightness control keys on the F2 and F3 keys which are very helpful. The reason I gave the screen an 8 out of 10 was mainly because of the glossy screen, which can be very annoying sometimes. However, the glossy screen allows more vibrant colors to be showed on the 15.6" display.
The Intel Core i3 processor is a very nice processor to me but the exact opposite for others. People have said that i3 is sort of slower than other processors like Intel Core i5 or i7. If you're a basic web surfer and you use about only half of the computer's hard drive, like me, you might disagree with this. The i3 processor is perfect for me who, like many others, watch YouTube videos and communicate with different people over the Internet. When you have more demanding applications like the Adobe Creative Suite you should invest in an Intel Core i5 or i7 Extreme processor instead of i3. For my needs, i3 gets the job done perfectly, if annoying every once in a while.
A hard drive of 500GB and a RAM of 4GB is actually a lot of memory if you think about it. I have so far used about half of the computer's hard drive and it seems perfectly normal; it still acts like it's brand new.Read more ›
