Reviews for the HP Compaq 6515b

HP Compaq 6515b Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The HP Compaq 6515b is a solid, nicely outfitted notebook that, while falling into the thin-and-light category, is pushing close to the maximums, in my opinion, when it comes to weight and size. Nonetheless, no sacrifices have been made in terms of build quality or business features. The matte screen and keyboard are excellent, and the notebook offers a lot for the price. Performance could be better, but that’s almost always true, and for most typical business and personal computing, performance should be plenty; there was no significant lag under stress and the 6515b easily handled Vista Business, including Windows Aero Glass. The 6515b was a pleasure to use and, as expected, performed much better than the still very serviceable nc6120s I’m used to.

Bottom Line: The HP Compaq 6515b is a business laptop with plenty of wireless features, but competition from Lenovo and Gateway makes it a tough sell. Pros: Plenty of wireless options to choose from. Laminated palm rests. Good features. Cons: Pretty thick. Mediocre performance scores.

The good: Improved design; antiglare display with sharp resolution; options for 802.11 draft-n, EV-DO, and HSDPA wireless; great-sounding speakers; strong components for the price. The bad: Lagged on Office productivity test; has somewhat heavy travel weight; lacks an ExpressCard slot. The bottom line: The HP Compaq 6515b notebook computer offers enterprise-level features and decent performance at a price that's friendly to small business.

Comment

ATI Radeon Xpress X1270: Built in RS690T chipset and is based on an X700 graphics core (with less pipelines). It features no dedicated graphics memory but Vista Aero support.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-64:

In 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 2.0 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).

14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
