Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6000t

HP dv6000t Laptop Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
It was a hot summer’s day, so I waltzed into Best Buy to check out the latest gadgets and to cool off. The first thing I saw was the glimmer from HP’s shiny new notebook, the dv6000z. The design was what caught my eye, a perfect balance of art and performance. The dv6000t is a great customizable notebook for all kinds of people. Whether you need just a basic laptop to surf the web and write documents, a medium range gaming machine, or something to just crunch lots of data this notebook can do it all when configured appropriately. It’s hard to find things wrong with such a beautiful and well built laptop, I can’t stop admiring its zen-type design even while I type this. Overall I think this is very balanced and priced very well comonentwise. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who needs a powerful machine, while still retaining stylish and futuristic looks.

HP Pavilion dv6000t with Core 2 Duo Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The HP Pavilion dv6000t is a full-featured multimedia notebook with a highly appealing look. Like all notebook computers, it is an exercise in compromise. What sets it apart from other machines, however, and goes a long way to explaining its popularity, is its impressive blend of looks, performance, comfort and price. At current prices, the dv6000t offers a fine mix of components and performance in the $800 to $1200 range. On top of that, it looks good and provides an exceedingly comfortable computing experience. I know that I, for one, would not have used it nearly as much as I did if it hadn’t given me excellent performance and first-rate comfort during our two weeks together. As I said at the outset, I really did look for something wrong with the dv6000t, but in the end I came up with only three “cons.” Of these, one, the screen resolution, is really a matter of personal preference and won’t make any difference unless a high-resolution LCD is desired; another, the issue of fingerprints, is rather trivial and may actually inspire the owner to keep the notebook nice and clean; and the third problem may be the rather short battery life.

I have some mixed emotions about the dv6000t. It looks cool, retails at a low starting price, and boasts an impressive screen. The low battery life causes it to lose a few points, as well as the clunky, somewhat irritating touchpad. I don’t know why I was so bothered by the lack of the latching mechanism for the lid, but it detracted from my overall impression of the build quality. Hardware-wise, I was pretty satisfied with the dv6000t. The Core 2 Duo T7200 (2.00GHz, 667MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache), 1GB of DDR2-667 RAM and 120GB SATA hard drive were nice inclusions. I was happy with the TV tuner and its performance with Windows XP Media Center Edition and the remote control worked well.

The Pavilion dv6000t is a stylish, reasonably priced laptop for both work and play. Highlights include a bright 15.4-inch wide-screen display, a keyboard with a touchpad lock, strong sound, one-touch entertainment, and a superb optional docking station. The dv6000t offers a wide choice of AMD and Intel processors (a t in the model name indicates Intel, while a z designates AMD). Our $1499 (as of 9/8/06) review unit came equipped with a 1.83-GHz Core 2 Duo T5600 processor and 1GB DDR2-667 SDRAM. It earned a WorldBench 5 score of 101, placing its performance among the top 20 percent of notebooks we've tested. The standard 6-cell battery disappointed, lasting a brief 2.1 hours in our tests. If battery life is one of your priorities, you'll do well to upgrade to the 12-cell version for $39 more;

A month ago, the HP Pavilion dv6000 series made a soft entrance into the dual-core laptop market by going with AMD's dual-core processor, but that left people wondering where the Intel versions were. At $1,660 (direct), I think the HP Pavilion dv6000t (Core 2 Duo) is priced fairly, though this particular configuration will not ship until the beginning of October. You will, however, be able to get your hands on a version of the dv6000t with the lower-clocked 2-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 processor starting in September. Overall, the dv6000t is an impressive media machine—as long as you stay close to an outlet.

We’re happy to see that while there’s a new chip on the inside, HP didn’t alter the design of the slick Pavilion dv6000t. The glossy piano-black finish and gray pinstriping outside (with that color scheme reversed inside) looks stunning. Even better, the dv6000 t has the features and performance to complement its good looks. This six-pound notebook features a 15.4-inch widescreen LCD with a comfortable 1280 x 800-pixel native resolution. DVDs looked great on this display, and we love HP’s QuickPlay feature for launching and controlling multimedia files without booting up Windows. Viewing-angle performance was typical for this class of panel: good from side to side, but images looked washed-out when viewed from above.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 the competitor to the ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. Caution there are some versions with reduced momry bus available.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7400: Former mid range to high end mobile processor based on the Merom core. Compareable to a later produced and more  power efficient C2D P7450.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4": 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. 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.


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