Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-1240ea

At first glance, the HP Pavilion dv6 would appear to be the very antithesis of the dour business laptop. Boasting flashy looks, a glossy screen and enough chrome-effect highlights to dazzle a footballer’s wife, it's not exactly shy and retiring. Look at the reasonable asking price, though, and the fashion-conscious crowd might be willing to cut the HP a bit of slack.
It might not earn a perfect six overall, but the DV6 is an affordable, high-quality desktop replacement that makes a great case for itself. And, when you consider that it costs just £608 exc VAT, most people will find it decidedly easy to put up with those flash-Harry looks.

90% HP Pavilion dv6-1240ea - 15.6in Laptop Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Based on a 16:9 aspect, 15.6in display, the HP Pavilion dv6 range is the latest addition to HP's mainstream laptop lineup. There's plenty of competition in this particular sector, since 15.6in is essentially the new 15.4in - i.e. the mainstream laptop size. Mediocre battery life aside, the HP Pavilion dv6-1240ea is an exceedingly accomplished laptop. Its specification is perfectly balanced and the list of features and extras (like the included remote) it offers for the money is truly astounding. If you're after a laptop that can do a bit of everything and don't want to spend the earth, we can think of little better suited to the task.

The first thing that strikes you about the HP dv6-1240ea Entertainment PC is how well finished it is. HP has once again used its imprint technology to produce a glossy and very attractive notebook – an effect that extends to the touch media controls and the flush ports on the side of the notebook really do look the part. Overall though, the HP is a fantastic laptop for use as an entertainment hub. It's powerful and smart, while its lack of weight means it's an ideal living room machine.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


T6500:

Entry level Penryn based dual-core CPU with a small 2MB level 2 cache and FSB800. Similar to the T6570 but without VT-x.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
