Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-3243cl

70% HP Pavilion dv6-3243cl
Source: PC Mag English
The HP Pavilion dv6-3243cl is average; it neither excels in any particular area nor falls short in another. It has solid performance, a nice option of ports, and an added bonus of Costco's 2-year tech support. If you're looking for something a little more above average without sacrificing your screen real estate, upgrade to the Editors' Choice HP Pavilion dv7-4183cl ($999.99 list, 4 stars). It offers better performance and throws in a Blu-ray player, all for $200 extra. But if you're trying to stick to a $800 budget, the EC Acer Aspire AS5745-7247 (4.5 stars) will provide better performance and user experience, all for $600 (street).

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.

N660: Mobile Dual-Core CPU based on the desktop Athlon II X2 due to the missing level 3 cache. Due to the fast clock speed, the N660 should be located in the  mid range of laptop CPUs (Core i3-370M).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
