Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv8000

HP Pavilion dv8000 Test
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Das HP dv8000 ist ein akzeptables Einsteiger Desktop Replacement Notebook, das viel Kraft und einen angenehm grossen Bildschirm in einer gut verarbeiteten Verpackung bietet, die nicht zu schwer ist um sie auf dem Schoß zu verwenden. Mit Preisen, die gegenwärtig um etwa 800$ für die Barebones und 1600$ für die voll Ausgestatteten liegen, bietet die dv8000 Serie ein ausgezeichnetes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis verglichen mit anderen System und für HPs als gut bekannten Kunden-Service dazu.

80% A well-designed 17-inch laptop with all the bells and whistles

Why mess with a winning formula? In the Pavilion dv8000, HP basically borrowed the same stellar design and QuickPlay feature for instant music and DVD playback from its smaller cousins and added a bigger screen, Turion 64 processor, and ATI graphics. The result: a notebook that will appeal to home users looking to ditch the desktop without spending a fortune. The dv8000's 15.6-inch wide frame has plenty of room for a spacious keyboard to complement the separate numeric keypad. The touchpad is smooth and responsive, integrates a scroll zone along the right side, and smartly features the same aspect ratio as the widescreen display.
