Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-1225ef

60% HP Pavilion dv6-1225ef
Source: Digital Versus English
The HP Pavilion dv6 is a midrange model from HP. Its multimedia capabilities suit it to a range of uses, from office applications and Web browsing to watching movies and viewing your holiday snaps. With its appealing visual design and very complete feature set on paper, the HP Pavilion dv6-1225ef look promising. Unfortunately, its disappointing performance, very poor battery life, and glossy, poor-quality display panel take away points.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530: About 27% slower clocked Mobility Radeon 4570. Power consumption 8-12 Watt according to AMD.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.


Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).
