Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-6b06sa

70% HP Pavilion dv6 15.6in quad-core notebook
Source: Reg Hardware English
The only thing that lets this AMD dv6 down is its all-but-casual gaming performance, although to be fair it’s not been designed for anything more demanding in this sphere. More to the point, the HP Pavilion dv6-6b06sa is a good all-rounder for home use for those on a fairly tight budget. It has enough power to do the everyday jobs and comes with huge storage capacity or it would do once you’ve stripped out the HP bloatware.

AMD Radeon HD 6545G2: Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 6490M and a 6520G APU graphics card (e.g. found in the AMD A6-3400M CPU).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.


2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
