Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-2150us

60% HP Pavilion dv6-2150us
Source: PC Mag English
Available at Staples for $779.98, the HP Pavilion dv6-2150us is a good choice for budget-savvy users who want the power of Intel's latest Core i3 CPU to process their multimedia and productivity workload. However, it's not the best choice, as there are other similarly priced 15-inch notebooks that give you more bang for your buck. The HP Pavilion dv6-2150us delivers Core i3 processing power in an affordable 15-inch frame, but it lacks 3D muscle.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.
