HP pavilion dv6 with keyboard light
The HP Pavilion dv6 is the company's workhorse consumer laptop, with a 15.6-inch LCD panel and a nearly full-size keyboard. When you first see the dv6, it seems thinner than it really is. The gently curved back surface of the LCD housing hides some of the bulk in the rear, which is thicker than the front of the laptop. In fact, the curves of the entire shell disguise the fact that this notebook is nearly 1.25 inches thick in places.
Even so, at 5 pounds, 12 ounces without the power brick (and a pound heavier with it), the dv6's weight is quite reasonable. the dv6 offers an Intel Core i5-2410M Sandy Bridge dual-core CPU, 6GB of DDR3 memory, and a discrete Radeon HD 6490M graphics chip. Overall performance seems quite good for a sub-$800 system, as the dv6 earned a solid score of 117 on WorldBench 6 and lasted nearly 5 hours on our battery-life test with the six-cell battery.
