Reviews for the HP Compaq 6830S
While the HP 6830s has too many flaws to be considered an essential purchase, its strengths make it well worth a look. As one of the most affordable Blu-ray laptops you can currently buy, it's an effective entry-level media centre. Just don't expect high-powered performance.

We can only assume that the 6830s is designed for business professionals who want a top of the range notebook with a large screen for a desktop replacement or for executives who really don’t travel much. As a road warrior myself, there is no way I would want to lug this thing around with me!

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3430: Entry level low end dedicated graphics adapter with slower clock rates than the HD 3450.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
T5870: Merom based entry level Core 2 Duo processor without Virtualization and a small level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
