Top Customer Reviews
1. i7 2630QM

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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.)
as for the computer it self, its an amazing machine, i do graphic design for a living and was amazed of the capabilities of this machine, nothing to envy to a 2 grand computer, and as of today its a way better product technologically speaking than a MacBook Pro....
the blueray reader is perfect, and the resolution on the screen is amazing.
would recommended to anyone who is looking for a work and entertainment computer all in one, and for the price you wont find anything better...
