5.0 out of 5 stars This review is is about the product, not HP's support... February 19, 2012
I am going to post a legitimate review about the actual product here. A few of the other reviews on this product were pretty much ranting and pointless. I am an IT technician, and I will sum it up as short as possible, but to the point. I bought this for my own personal use, not for work. All in all, this PC has great speed, good hibernation in and out of lid closes (hasn't locked up once yet), and fingerprint reader is actually very useful. Beats audio is marketing mostly, sounds a little better though. This PC is gorgeous aesthetically, and touchpad is useable for once. It has advanced functions (two finger zoom/scroll, etc.). Also, for those of you that don't like the touchpad light that surrounds the touchpad, (fn) function & spacebar toggles it on and off. Double tap the top left corner of the touchpad to turn it off and use a wireless mouse. Other than that, quad-core processor, 2 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports, pretty good graphics card, fingerprint reader with shortcut software included (you can setup different website shortcuts and/or system functions to access with recognition of different fingers; ie: shutdown with your pinky, or go to your 3 favorite websites with just one swipe of your index finger). It has 6 gigs of ram (expandable to 16 GB), 640 gig HDD, memory card reader, beats audio, and bluetooth, you really can't go wrong for the price. Remember, all PCs have bloatware these days pretty much, most PC support problems are dealt with through globally outsourced firms. This does suck, but it keeps their costs down for us to buy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Laptop For The Money and It Works!! February 5, 2012
I was going to purchase this HP DV6-6c10us laptop from Amazon but found a deal at Staples that I could not pass up. Purchased it for my daughter and she loves it. Uses it mostly for work that she brings home from her job along with Internet, email and music. I also hooked the laptop to her 61 inch HDTV with an HDMI cable. She now streams HD shows and music videos to her HDTV by way of the internet. Outstanding resolution.

Microsoft Office Starter also came loaded on this computer. Word and Excel Starter are a nice addition if you don't need the full version of Office. All you need for home use.

Disabled or uninstalled all of the items that we didn't want or need without a glitch. Took about 15 minutes.

The laptop recognized all of the equipment that she had for her old laptop and installed it without a glitch.

After everything was hooked up and operating, including her printer, she decided that she wanted to use it as a wireless printer instead of a wired printer. No problem just pulled her printer software package, that came with the printer, out of a drawer installed the wireless printer drivers and presto, wireless printing. If you no longer have the printer software that came with the printer you can usually download the software from the printer manufacturers website.

Some older equipment such as printers and etc. may not work with Windows 7 desktop and laptop computers. Microsoft makes this quite clear. Many equipment and software manufacturers did not build drivers for their older products so Microsoft could not add drivers for this older equipment to Windows 7. This also happened with Vista. It is not the responsibility of Microsoft to build the drivers for equipment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great deal no matter how you slice it February 9, 2012
OK first things first & in the interest of full disclosure...

I didn't buy this laptop from Amazon. I in fact bought it from my local Staples when they had an amazing deal too good to pass up. I was in fact on the verge of ordering a different laptop from Amazon when I came across the deal I found on this machine. Thankfully Amazon allows us to review products we own so others can make informed decisions so I'll give my assessment of this laptop here.

I've spent a couple of weeks getting used to this laptop & putting it through it's paces so that I can offer a more thorough assessment.

Full review of HP Pavilion dv6-6C10US 15.6" Laptop:

I spent a few weeks researching new laptops & I thought I'd settled on a few choices from online. I went into my local Staples & discovered this steal of a deal & couldn't be happier I did. I was actually in the market for a much more costly alternative (Apple) until I found this laptop.

A few of it's standout features;

1) A nice quad core processor & built in AMD discrete graphics make it capable of handling most anything you throw at it. I use Adobe CS5 for my personal design business & in my tests this laptop handled even a heavy Photoshop render (multiple effects & layers) with ease.

2) The build quality is outstanding. I'm a big fan of the brushed metal shell. It feels good in the hand & stays cool to the touch. No cheap textured plastic here except for the bottom which is to be expected. It also repels fingerprints so it looks clean. Nice job on this attention to detail HP.

3) Expandability beyond the out of the box configuration. This was my major gripe with the Macbooks I was considering. They look great & run great but offer virtually no future upgrade potential.
