Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv9655ea

70% HP Pavilion dv9655ea laptop Review
Source: Pocket Lint English
If you’re on a budget and looking for a media centre for watching and recording media, the HP Pavilion dv9655ea is a great compromise. The screen is god, the storage excellent and the right features all in place.
However, if you’re looking to edit video and generally run high-end tasks, you’ll find it frustrating as we simply didn’t find it powerful enough. With a TV tuner, remote control and big screen this is a great media centre machine but we found it could run slow at times.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS: NVidia GeForce 8400M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7400 for laptops and technologically a slower 8400M GT video card (because of the smaller 64 Bit memory bus).

 

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

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-60: First in 90nm, later in 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 1.8 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.6 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
