HP Pavilion dv6 Quad 15.6-inch Laptop Review

Single Review, online available, Very Short, Date: 04/26/2011
80% HP Pavilion dv6-2190us 15.6-inch Thin And Light Laptop PC

HP's Pavilion dv6-2190us is one of many new affordable higher performance laptops available with the new quad core Core i7 processor. Performance is very strong but the system does run hot and requires a very large power adapter to be carried around frequently due to its limited battery life. It would have been nice to see HP upgrade more aspects of the system from previous versions but it does offer a fair amount of functions for those not wanting to spend much more than $1000 on a laptop.

The DV6 is the most powerful laptop I have ever owned and used.
The laptop will definitely work well for the type of computer activities that I do:
buring DVD's, programming, video converison, picture editing, etc. I love the laptop. I new i was buying a desktop replacement with a lot of power but limited battery life.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M: The GeForce GT 230M features 48 shader cores as the 9700M GTS but only a 64 bit memory bus. Because of the 40nm process the power consumption is in the region of the GT 130M. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
