Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-1253cl

80% HP Pavilion dv6 (1253cl)
Source: PC Mag English
"Just a little off the top" is good advice for a barber, but who knew it would be a good suggestion for desktop-replacement laptop shoppers? The HP Pavilion dv6 (1253cl) ($949.99 list) fits just below the dv7 series with a 16-inch rather than 17-inch-class screen and correspondingly smaller chassis. Yet it packs the same potent CPU and graphics hardware as the high-end Pavilion dv7-2170us, and goes a step further by featuring a Blu-ray player instead of a mere DVD+/-RW. The HP Pavilion dv6-1253cl, an aggressively discounted laptop, makes a compelling case for 16 inches as the mobile media center screen-size sweet spot.

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.

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.


P7450: Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
