At my work, I often use a HP Pavilion Entertainment Notebook Computer dv6000 for basic purposes. It is a good laptop for several reasons, but before I go into that, here are the specifications:
- Intel Centrino Duo Mobil Technology Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5200 (1.6GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 533 MHz FSB)
- Windows XP Media Center Edition
- 1.3 MP Webcam
- 1024MB system memory
- 120GB HD
- LightScribe Super Multi 8x DVD+_R/RW drive with Double Layer support
- Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 with up to 128MB shared video memory
- 15.4" WXGA High-Definition BrightView (1280x800)
I can't go into specific details about the full capabilities because I don't use it for extensive us, but I can tell you how the machine runs with everyday activity for the average user. Although the extra HP features are annoying, they can be disabled. The machine runs pretty smoothly. I generally don't like laptops but I am impressed by the screen size, the keyboard size, and the speed.
I've been using it for about 6 months now and I've yet to run into a problem. One good thing is that it's Vista ready (although it comes with XP pre-installed). The 15.4" screen on a laptop is always nice because I'm normally use to my 20. The keyboard isn't cramped up and it's nice for someone with bigger hands.
A nice feature is the trackpad. It has a horizontal and a vertical scroll bar right on it. Also, the screen is crystal clear. Beautiful resolution. Overall, I recommend this laptop for someone who wants to do more than the average person. Although I haven't been able to explore all aspects of the machine, I haven't had any issues.
