Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-3010us
Source: PC Mag
The HP Pavilion dv6-3010us ($699.98 list), sold at Staples, boasts a couple of noteworthy new features. For starters, it's one of the first Pavilions we've reviewed to feature HP's new design. It's also one of the first laptops to pass through the Labs with AMD's latest Vision platform. Both the new design and the new AMD Vision platform are mixed bags. We applaud HP's move away from the high-gloss Pavilion chassis it has used for the past few years, but both the keyboard layout and touchpad design will take some getting used to. Also, AMD's new platform offers fair performance and battery life, but it still can't compete with similarly priced Intel Core i3- and Core i5-based systems. The HP Pavilion dv6-3010us is certainly an attractive-looking laptop, but you can find better value and performance elsewhere.
