After a month of researching different laptops, the dv6-6190us laptop is the best laptop for the price out of any I could find for it's size, weight, and performance. I wanted a compact and portable powerhouse for college so I could both play games and work with ease. I will be a computer engineering major so having a reliable PC is extremely important to me. Although Amazon said it may take 4 weeks, it took only 1 week before the laptop was at my front door.

At first I was a little skeptical because I heard many reviews saying that AMD's new automatic switchable graphics feature doesn't turn on for OpenGL applications. As a result, software created by Adobe like Photoshop or older games like Minecraft will run slower than usual or not at all because the laptop will only use the intel graphics. However, since I do not use those type of programs I decided to take the risk because the features and performance were too great to pass. IF YOU ARE A HEAVY USER OF ADOBE OR OPENGL PRODUCTS, THIS PC IS NOT FOR YOU!!! I do expect AMD or HP to come out with a software fix eventually since this issue is present in pretty much all recent AMD switchable graphics.

Once I bought it, HP preloaded it with so much bloatware it slowed the computer down severely when I first started it. However, as an experienced computer user, I was able to disable many of the unnecessary add-ons and prevent useless startup programs from running and also uninstalled programs I knew I would never use. Some HP programs seemed like a complete waste of space and computer power such as the HP connection manager, especially since Windows 7 can help you connect perfectly fine. After all that, it runs incredibly well and boots up really fast.

I've had this laptop for about three weeks and so far I am very happy with my purchase. I don't know if I can say anything that the others haven't already said. I am most impressed by the screen. It's very bright and sharp (and 1080p!). Probably the best laptop screen I've ever had. It's also very fast. I regularly have 20 - 30 tabs open in a browser so when I open the browser back up after closing it the browser and all the tabs load up in no time.

My big and really only major complaint is the fan. If you're just doing word processing or internet browsing the laptop is very quiet, but if you're playing a game (even an older game) or anything else that's graphics or processor intensive the laptop gets very hot and LOUD, even if you use the integrated graphics instead of the Radeon graphics. Imagine a blow dryer on the lowest setting and you'll get an idea of how loud it can get.

A couple of other minor complaints:

The button to eject the Blu-Ray drive is really hard to press, even after jamming my fingernail into it. It's easily ejected by right-clicking on the drive in the My Computer window so this is mostly a minor inconvenience. The other thing is that the power brick really is almost the size of a brick. It's huge! The power cord is also pretty thick which is nice, but coupled with the huge power brick it makes it really hard to stuff into a computer bag.

This is a fast machine, with lots of memory, disk space, and CPU power. The screen is excellent, and the features are quite good. It is a little heavier than other similar screen-sized machines, but overall not too heavy. The power supply brick is huge and heavy, though. HP should take lessons from Apple on that. After a BIOS update, the ability to switch graphics processors works very well and is pretty nifty. It can play games nicely with the AMD GPU, many even at 1920x1080. Blu-Ray movies look great. Overall, this is a terrific laptop for a good price.

It has everything that a college student needs and it can play current modern games on high, and games like Starcraft II on Ultra.

The one thing that I would like a new control "center" for is the switchable graphics option.

This laptop could be great, but it falls short.

Pros: It has really nice specs, a stylish silver body and a really crisp screen. The equalizer included in the Beats Audio package makes it a multimedia dream and it has more than enough USB ports for anything that you could want to use with it. I enjoy having a number pad on the right side of the keyboard for use when using Excel or doing other calculations. HP includes some software, but nothing that cannot be removed easily.

Cons: Unfortunately, the cons may outweigh the pros for any future buying. The laptop is LOUD. I have read various articles that tell me it is due to the i7 processor running hot in general, but, even when my computer is running only Word, the fan kicks in to gear. I use this computer in graduate school and it is embarrassing in the classroom when it is more noticeable than the professor. While the aforementioned number pad is great, the right side of the computer feels structurally weaker than the left. When you rest your hand or use it, you can hear a creaking noise reminiscent of the computer actually bending under you. The trackpad is unnecessarily backlit, because the keyboard is still dark. I realize it probably does not use much power, but it's an unnecessary battery drain.

This laptop was my first foray back in to Windows after using Apple products for so long. Even if the computer was better, HP has been notoriously slow with driver updates. If it fits all your specs, it's not terrible but I would look elsewhere.
