I'll show this to hp guy he is coming tomorrow. :)

Hey Dashing.sujay and Rider..!

Can you tell me if hp dv6 6017tx , 6121tx are still available in the market(as they hav been discontinued).

will hp launch new laptops in india in coming months ? as 7010tx graphic card is really bad

and what is the exact market price of dv6 6165tx? (it is still available i believe)

6017tx and 6121tx are permanently discontinued laptops by hp.
I think 6165tx will get also in a month or so as it is a 2011 model.

hp may launch new laptops may be in around july (like 6121tx launched after 6017tx with better graphic performance)

IMO if you want laptop just for right now go with 6165tx or wait for a month or so dell is refreshing XPS 15 lineup.
And if you not in gaming much 7010tx is not bad for you as it is the only brand that has latest ivy bridge core-i7 in it.
Other brands like Apple, Dell, Asus, Vaio are lauching soon.

I really need help on this.

It replaces the DVD drive of the laptop, and you can plug in an HDD in that so that you can use 2 internal HDDs in a laptop. Link:

SATA 2nd HDD Hard Drive Caddy for 12.7mm Universal CD / DVD-ROM Optical Bay | eBay

However, is there any store which sells them in India locally? The price quoted here is too high, as this specific models sells for only 10$ in US. :-x

have u replaced ur HDD with SSD.

Does 6121tx support SATA III SSD ?

Has any one succesfully added a second hard disk replacing the optical slot?

guys today my laptop has been on for continuous download (movies), watching movies and browsing for the last 8 hrs and i just checked the temps, they are as follows: CPU: 61, motherboard: 65 & GPU: 54. Is this normal if the laptop is been used continuously? the CPU and motherboard is what concerns me. Normally in ideal state it be's at 45-50. this includes my wifi which is also on since last 7-8hrs..

guys, have ordered a dv6 6165 will be delivered tomorrow...@58;000.....the dealer is giving a 4gb pendrive, a bag, mouse and headphones....

should I negotiate some other accessories or are they fine?

And yes guys kindly keep posting on any known issues.



As far as that BSOD thing is concerned....its most likely cause that I know is a Windows issue pertaining to its handling of USB Drivers. Looks like the windows 7 is still maturing with the new h/w....even when Windows 8 is just around the corner.

The new ivy bridge processors are better than last years models. If you are not much in gaming (as u mentioned) get the new dv6 7010tx, It's better in general performance for editing and all. nvidia GT 630M is more than enough to play MS Flight Simulator X.

Is dv6 7010tx available in India(Mumbai) ?? Can I configure it to get 1080p screen ?? Can it handle games like Crysis 2, Asassin's Creed ,COD,etc. ?
Which graphics card is better nvidia GT630M or ati radeon 6770m?? How much does it cost??:-?:-?

CPU temperature is a bit high for watching movies and browsing. My laptop is on since about 12-14 hours doing browsing, downloading and reading ebooks and ppts, current cpu temperature in 40s (using power-saving mode, max cpu 60%, don't know how much difference it makes).


ahmm.. 8-10 days :mrgreen:

:shock: Was it continuously on or sleeping in between ?

I use real temp for CPU temp and GPU-Z for GPU temp.
The laptop's specs are good for the price, but add the price of genuine windows (home premium, ~6.5k) bringing total cost to 46k, and you get dv6-7012tx with a bit better specs and beats audio for 2-4k more. It also has 3 USB 3.0 ports, in case it matters to you ;)

You are really cruel ;)
But it may reduce the life of the laptop.
