In conclusion, the number of features and the build quality you get for price of the dv6t Select Quad Edition is a bargain. The dv6tse is a great option for many people looking for a laptop that can be portable when necessary but for the most part would serve well as a home bound machine that offers great multimedia capabilities and above average performance with common computing tasks.

If you're looking for a desktop replacement laptop that uses the latest Intel technology to deliver strong productivity performance, the HP Pavilion dv6-6033cl will fit the bill. Its durable finish and ample storage are nice features, as are the speedy USB 3.0 ports and two-year warranty. Still, its graphics engine has limited potential, and it comes up short in terms of features and battery life. And while the dv6-6033cl is a good performer, the Dell Inspiron 15R-2728MRB offers similar productivity performance and more features for less money (the dv6-6033cl gives you slightly better multimedia and graphics performance, though). The Acer Aspire AS5742-6811 also offers competitive performance and much better battery life for around $150 less. For the best all around performance and feature set in a 15-inch desktop replacement laptop, the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Thunderbolt) is still our reigning Editors' Choice.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
