The HP Pavilion dv6-7010 laptop computer is top-notch and will make an excellent gift for the college bound student or budding writer. It has stylish midnight black aluminum casing and boasts a 15.6 inch wide screen that is suitable for most users. It's large enough for good graphics without being too bulky or heavy to carry in a case while traveling, although it might be a bit large for comfortable use on an airplane. The color resolution is brilliant in full HD 1080p (pixel resolution 1920 x 1080) thanks to the AMD Radeon HD 764G, which might not be sufficient for hardcore gamers, but is appropriate for playing video games at optional lower settings.

The keyboard is an HP standard design with a numeric 10 key added on. The keys feel nicely weighted and firm, with generously sized touch-pads. The processor is an impressive AMD Quad-Core A8-4500M with generous memory: 6GB total. Paired with the Radeon video card and 3060 MB graphic memory, the HP Pavilion dv6 will support Photoshop, CorelDRAW, AfterShot Pro , and your other favorite creative software programs. The operating system is Windows 7, Home Version. The system powers up and is ready to work in about 30 seconds.

This laptop computer features Beats Audio technology great sound quality, with a sub-woofer fitted on the underside of the laptop.
There are four USB ports for connecting external devices, or for adding a standard or wireless mouse, if you don't care for the touchpad style pointer. Also notable is the lock option on the touchpad.

There is surprisingly little bloat-ware installed on this laptop. It comes with adequate software programs such as Microsoft Office 2010 starter (with the option to purchase the full version), Evernote, Blio and Skype.

Verified Purchase
I only got my dv6 today, but I've delved into it and spent several hours updating and tweaking it, all the while debating whether or not to return it. I was initially impressed by the capabilities of the built-in speakers, the fingerprint recognition, and the high definition display, which handled a few PC games with no visible lag on decent visual settings. Right out of the box, it was a keeper.

But then I downloaded "important updates" from Microsoft, which have now caused all my games to crash upon launch, due to an inexplicably missing graphics driver. I've continued to download updates for the better part of the few hours I've had the computer, all the while wondering if I'll have to start all over again due to overheating. It's already reset twice for this (in less than 24 hours of use, mind you), and I've only used it on my desk or lapboard - and it resets without warning and without any noticeable physical heating underneath. For a computer that advertises its intelligent cooling technology, and having just traded up from a laptop that never overheated in five years of use, that seemed a bit odd. I would rather not have to buy more accessories to fight such a glaring and vital issue, especially after having shelled out the money for the computer itself. I mean, what good is a laptop if you have to constantly worry about that, and if you must carry around cooling devices to prevent losing work? And I know that there was that checklist on the product description page, but the image with which we've been provided actually has the Blu-Ray Logo on the disc drive. Yes, the description is there, but it's a bit misleading the way it's all set up.

I'm still on the fence about this purchase.

I love this laptop. For many reasons. Primarily I like the fact that it's 15.6 inches not a behemoth yet handles all my multimedia needs flawlessly. The hi-def capable screen is well built and very thin, as is the whole laptop. Some of the included HP software and hardware are true innovations. It stays cool during long use and power is managed well.

First I fully charged it then I took it for a joyride the day I got it and started uninstalling programs I didn't use and installing programs I wanted on it. (took Norton off - hate Norton...went with Microsoft Security Essentials which if microsoft does nothing else right does fully integrate and does not slow down your sytem like battleship norton! Tho I'm not saying the Norton on this laptop would since I didn't try it.) Fired up the wifi and did the obligatory updates first and the Windows 7 home premium was surprisingly up to date (it downloaded 235mb in less than three minutes). Put sounds on first so I could work and listen and that 'beat' sound system is everything my grandkids told me it was. Really full sound from laptop speakers! Tested out the new 'swipe' motion touchpad (does not have touchscreen and lamentably no blu-ray player yet - does have multi-dvd writer player) and found with a little practice these old arthritic hands may just wind up using those motions more than the usual touch navigation system (have laptop mouse on the way for backup). Before I knew it I had been going at it for about six hours and my battery was still showing at least an hour left! NOW THAT IMPRESSED ME! Then I got the literature and read that the battery can last up to eight hours. My how times have changed. The AMD quad processor makes it move along like my desktop and even at 2.
