I have to say the new HP Pavilion DV6 is one hell of a laptop in terms of performance. I haven’t seen anything with this much power in such a relatively mid-sized frame; most definitely not a this price point. The build quality of the DV6 is above average, but nothing high-end like dedicated gaming machines. Then again, the DV6 isn’t designed to be a gaming machine, but rather and all round notebook that can easily replace your desktop with stellar performance and portability. Without a doubt, if you’re in the market for a 15” notebook, the new HP Pavilion DV6 provides a compelling package that’s too good to miss at this price.

AMD Radeon HD 6570M: Renamed Mobility Radeon HD 5700 series card with (optional?) GDDR5 support like the HD 5750.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
