HP's Pavilion dv6 laptop is a budget priced desktop replacement well worth considering At first glance, the HP Pavilion dv6 would appear to be the very antithesis of the tasteful laptop. Boasting flashy looks, a glossy screen and enough chrome-effect highlights to dazzle a footballer's wife, it isn't exactly shy and retiring. It might not score a perfect six overall, but the dv6 is a stylish, well-featured all-rounder. And, when you consider that it costs just $1409, it's decidedly easy to put up with those flash looks.

HP's dv6-1130sa is a great entry-level laptop at a good price, but slightly lacking in performance. This is one of the best laptops we've seen at this price. It is feature-packed, easy to use and looks great. A faster processor would almost certainly have made this laptop a real winner.
