Overall, if you’re looking for a laptop that can serve as a media center or gaming machine at home or in the dorm room, the dv6tqe is a great choice and can be had at a great price. It would not fit well as a laptop to carry around campus a lot due to its bulk and heavy weight, so you need to evaluate what your needs are in a laptop first.

The HP Pavilion dv6-6153cl offers a nice balance of components, style, and features for a sub-$1,000 desktop replacement, but it lacks a few necessities that would have put it over the top, such as WiMAX and Bluetooth wireless, a Blu-ray drive, and a high-resolution display. If you require full 1080p and a bit more battery life, CPU power, and graphics prowess, consider the Dell XPS 15z instead.

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.
