Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6500t

HP Pavilion dv6500t Review
Source: English
The HP Pavilion dv6500t is a “Santa Rosa” equipped update to the very popular dv6000t series of mainstream laptops, which topped the Most Popular Laptops chart for quite a while. A 15.4” widescreen, consumer-oriented laptop, it delivers a solid, well-rounded package that updates the HP lineup nicely. If you need something that can last at least two hours on a charge to take notes during class, the dv6500t’s 6-cell battery more than accomplishes that. Rather than select the 12-cell which lifts the back and adds about an inch to the thickness, I opted for the “high-capacity” version of the standard 6-cell, which has a 16% increase in capacity. While word processing and moving a few files around, with wireless off and screen brightness at a lower but acceptable level, the battery lasted 4 hours and 1 minute. The 6-cell lasted for about 3 hours while watching a DVD with the screen at half brightness.

The good: Includes HD DVD drive and HDMI port; touch-sensitive media controls; 802.11n Wi-Fi; good component mix for the price. The bad: Some options (including HD DVD drive) not available yet; disappointing battery life. The bottom line: HP's attractive Pavilion dv6500t is a well-designed 15-inch multimedia laptop that stands out from the mainstream crowd with touch-sensitive media controls and an HDMI output, but the standard battery could be better.

A beautifully crafted consumer notebook, the new HP Pavilion dv6500t has backlit media controls and a stylish case that's made for showing off. Capable of serious work as well, it's a strong performer, yet fairly light (6.2 pounds) and easily totable. This well-designed multimedia notebook performs well, thanks to one of Intel's latest mobile processors.

HP has scored big with its piano-lacquer Pavilion design, and the new HP Pavilion dv6500t sticks with it, adding minimal visual upgrades. The subtle wave-pattern pinstriping has been replaced by a more circular imprint, but the glossy black exterior and silver keyboard deck look as sharp and sleek as ever (fingerprint smudges notwithstanding). The biggest draw, however, is its Santa Rosa chipset, which churned out good performance numbers and very good battery life. (View our photo gallery.)

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» 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.

T7100: Entry level to mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.» 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.

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.
