Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-2150us
Source: PC Mag
Available at Staples for $779.98, the HP Pavilion dv6-2150us is a good choice for budget-savvy users who want the power of Intel's latest Core i3 CPU to process their multimedia and productivity workload. However, it's not the best choice, as there are other similarly priced 15-inch notebooks that give you more bang for your buck. The HP Pavilion dv6-2150us delivers Core i3 processing power in an affordable 15-inch frame, but it lacks 3D muscle.
