Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-3013cl
Source: PC Mag
Other than being the first AMD Visionbased laptop to pass through PC Labs, there's nothing that makes the HP Pavilion dv6-3013cl ($799.99 list) stand out in the crowded mainstream laptop market. Its performance is good, but not great, and the same can be said for its battery life. And while it does boast ATI Radeon graphics, the GPU is an integrated solution and performs like one. The biggest improvement over previous dv6 iterations has to do with the design; HP traded in the glossy crop circle pattern for a more subtle finish. The dv6-3013cl is a capable performer, but there are other similarly priced 15-inch notebooks out there that offer more features and better performance.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
N930: Mobile Quad-Core CPU with 2 GHz clock speed. Because of the missing Level 3 Cache and no Turbo, the N930 is not well suited for games.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
