It is a great computer I am going to name the things I have had wrong with it because it is easier and more useful for people wanting to buy this.

HP Pavilion dv6-6170us Entertainment Notebook PC (Silver)
Pros:
1. i7 2630QM
2. ATI Radeon 6770M
3. Solid Keyboard
4. HP care pack warranty.
5. Bright and big 1366 x 768 15.6 inch display.
6. USB 3.0 x 2.
7. Battery life for this type of laptop. Rated at 5-5.5 hours. Even more when you have an SSD -- probably 30 minutes more on average.
8. Price per performance is about the best you are going to find.
9. Construction and solid feel.
10. Cool sense technology.
11. Beats audio.
12. Finger print reader.
13. Ability to have switchable graphics. I put it as a con also with explanation below.
14. HP Customer service.

Cons:
1. 6GM of RAM - upgrade to 8GB for $25 from Amazon.
2. 5400 RPM hard disk - upgrade to the Crucial M4 128GB SSD from Amazon for $200.
3. Track pad not very responsive.
4. Switchable graphics is probably ahead of its time and some software applications aren't ready for this.

I initially got a dv6z which included the AMD A8-3510MX processor, but decided to return and get the dv6-6170us, which is a packaged unit with better video card (ATI Radeon 6770M) and the Sandy Bridge Intel CPU i7 2630QM. That is what I love about going to HP directly is the ability to return or exchange within 21 days of your purchase.

My customer service experience was amazing!!! I was able to return the dv6z laptop for the dv6-6170us laptop. They didn't raise a fuss or anything. They told me that they wouldn't ship out the exchange until they received the dv6z.

I have bought this laptop for about 20 days. So far it works fine.
Pro:

I7. I think I5 is enough for every one who wants to play games. i7 is a little waste of power.

ATI 6770m, 6770m is always compared with NV Gt555m. i think 6770m is a little better than NV555m. I played Fallout NV and

Deadisland for the max performance. The average of Fallout is 50Fps and For Deadisland is 50Fps.

Speaker. The speaker is very good.

fingerprint. Safety and insteresting and easy to use.

HP coolsense. You can control the speed of your fan. And it is not heat.(if you set the fan speed with coolest)

Good price. I purchased it from Amazon directly for $962, you can not buy a laptop with this good performance with only $900I

Amazon shipping speed. I made my order and choosed next-day shipping and got my laptop by tomorrow morning.

Con:
The screen is not good enough and I got one dead pixel on the left middle of my screen.

No physical graphic card switch.

Huge power adapter.

(I am not american. Sorry for my english grammer.)

To HP's credit, their service/repair division is fast, responsive and courteous. To HP's discredit, their service/repair division HAS to be, because their hardware is such junk. A couple of months after receiving the DV6, the screen flicker started, and I had to wiggle the lid in order to get it the screen to turn on. It also went to sleep by itself and kept shutting itself off. I sent it back for repair, which was very quick, and it worked fine. A couple of months later, the screen won't stay on again without wiggling the lid back and forth. I have to send it back again. This is not only really inconvenient, but the next time this connection fails, it will be out of warranty.

HP. Never again.

Recently after a lot of searching around i bought this laptop and i have to say i made the right choice, its everything the description says and i am very satifsied with everything, it works smoothly on everything i have tried so far, the only "flaw" i might have for this product is that i was expecting the screen to be a litle taller but it doesnt make much of a diference.
