Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-1211sg

75% Review HP Pavilion dv6-1211sg Notebook | Notebookcheck
Bread and Games. HP knows what the people want? A good graphic card combined with an acceptable processor in a case with loads of connections. Of course, this package shouldn't cost too much, 700 Euros at most. The scrooge among the customers will make a find for 660 Euros in the HP Pavilion dv6-1211eg. Are a Pentium T4200 and an ATI Mobility HD4650 just that what so many notebook buyers are looking for?

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650: The Mobility HD 4650 is based on the Desktop 4650 architecture, but features a lower clock rate of memory and core. Depending on the core clock (450-550MHz possible) and the used memory (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3 with 600-800 MHz possible) the mobile 4650 can show a different performance. The current consumption of the chip alone ranges from 15-25W. Features Avivo HD video features.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
