    Ok... few days back one of my friend bought Hp Pavilion DV6 1154tx laptop... So I thought a review might be good .....

    So here it goes....

    [​IMG]


    It came with Windows Vista... but now it is running Windows 7 Beta without any issues... I think the laptop looks great... The configuration goes like this :

    -> Intel C2D 8600 @ 2.4ghz
    -> 4GB DDr2 RAM
    -> 500gb HDD
    -> ATI Mobility Radeon HD4650 with 1gb Ram
    -> DVD writer ....etc

    Other Highlights of the lappy includes : -

    -> Webcam
    -> Fingerprint Scanner
    -> Hp quick launch buttons
    -> 5 in 1 Card (Common with all Laptops)
    -> Remote Control (As its an entertainment laptop)
    -> 4 x Usb 2.0
    -> 1 x eSata
    -> HDMI
    -> Ethernet, Modem, PCMCIA Slot, VGA out...
    -> Screen Size is 15.6 inches
    -> 1 x Line in jack and 2x line out (2 headphones can be connected)

    The laptop has good overall performance, thanks to the 2.4 Ghz c2d and the Ati 4650 it can play most of the new games can be played on it at decent resolution and settings. I played Prototype, Crysis Warhed at resolutions upto 1024 x 768 with all settings high. The gameplay was smooth and still the laptop had enough grunt left to push the resolutions higher. Didn't get enough time to do that.

    [​IMG]
    The keyboard is good. it has numpad also. But the arrow keys are too small to be classified as comfortable. The keyboard scores low on feedback front. The touchpad has seperate button to switch it off. But its too smooth and fast for my liking. The inbuilt speakers are good when considering laptops as its made by Altec Lansing.

    [​IMG]
    The screen in 15.6 inches with max resolution of 1366x768. The screen is not that great at it loses details when viewed from sideways.

    [​IMG]

    It got windows experience index of 5.9 in windows 7..

    Pros : -
    -> No heating issues
    -> Good for gaming

    Cons : -
    -> keyboard feedback not upto the mark
    -> Screen quality
    -> Over priced

    Overall its a good package but its a bit overpriced at 67000/- as for that amount a better Dell laptop can be purchased.

    Some more pics :

    how hot does it get. Is it worth the trouble? If you could mention the temperatures it would be great.

    good review.

    but you should've picked one with core2duo. i don't like AMD mobile processors. They are not good in power management and not fast either (when compared to core2duo).

    and centrino 2 rocks!!
