Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-3243cl
Source: PC Mag
The HP Pavilion dv6-3243cl is average; it neither excels in any particular area nor falls short in another. It has solid performance, a nice option of ports, and an added bonus of Costco's 2-year tech support. If you're looking for something a little more above average without sacrificing your screen real estate, upgrade to the Editors' Choice HP Pavilion dv7-4183cl ($999.99 list, 4 stars). It offers better performance and throws in a Blu-ray player, all for $200 extra. But if you're trying to stick to a $800 budget, the EC Acer Aspire AS5745-7247 (4.5 stars) will provide better performance and user experience, all for $600 (street).
