The display unit on this laptop is bright and detailed at 1600 by 900 dpi. Videos and pictures are shown with beautiful detail. I tested the unit with a DVD movie, but not with a Blu-ray video. It ran fine with full motion, showing nice detail and natural colors. There was not any blurring around the edges of images that you sometimes see in older laptops.
This laptop is sleek looking in steel gray, and is reasonably lightweight and thin looking. The advertised battery life is "up to 10.25 hours," which was about twice the amount of time that I actually got. Still, this is allot longer than the two hours or so that I was getting with my previous computer.
For comparison purposes, the Windows Experience Index is: processor, 7.4; memory, 7.6; graphics, 6.6; gaming graphics, 6.6; and primary hard disk, 5.9. With dual drives, it is possible to swap out the boot drive for a smallish solid state drive and significantly speed up the primary hard disk. But for the moment, short of buying an expensive "gaming machine," this is a smartly engineered and fast laptop for its price.
This a great device - I can't imagine not being immensely pleased with it.
I will preface my following praise with a disclaimer that I have only owned this laptop for a few hours. I was a little hesitant to buy an HP laptop because I deal with their servers and workstations at work and I have noticed a lot of hardware failures (statisically more than the norm). Of course there are other mitigating factors so I do not blame HP entirely.
Of course I bought this laptop and the next day (today) HP announces they are spinning off their consumer desktop and laptop lines (and most likely all non-server based products). This could not deter me from my joy though, because upon receiving the laptop, I was immediately blown away by the laptop body, the elevated stand on the battery, the overall look and appearance of just the laptop chassis and most importantly of all, the heat dissipation that makes working on a laptop painful after awhile.
I got through HP's bloatware and immediately inserted a blu ray. The results are nothing short of spectacular!
The graphics and the screen will blow you away. The optical drive is super fast, the lighted touchpad with a solid feel and Apple-style tweak, make this the perfect candidate for my goal.
I write this review now before I do any modifications to the hardware (which I plan on because of the typical hdd any laptop manufacturer seems to punish the consumer with) because I simply stunned by the power of this machine. The processor is a tribute to Intel's advancement is chipset making and the screen is absolutely stunning (this laptop screen alone justifies the $100 extra cost of this over the dv6, spend it, I assure you its worth it!Read more ›
