The HP Pavilion dv6t does nothing but get the job done. It doesn’t do it with any style or explosive technologies like other computers computers strive for. What HP does is cover the demand of those who want a computer but don’t want to blow their whole bank account doing it. HP is one of the pioneering companies of the technology industry and has matured as an organization where they don’t come out with anything too crazy. They just supply products that are adequate. The HP Pavilion dv6t covers HP’s business model perfectly. It has potential but doesn’t deliver anything fancy.
Within the HP Pavilion dv6t is an Intel Core i5-2410M processor. It has clock speeds up to 2.3 GHz and with its turbo boost feature it can jump up to 2.9 GHz. HP did make a great choice in including this component. It isn’t the best processor out there but it has the capabilities to handle the majority of games on the market. For the HP Pavilion dv6t’s memory, there is 640GB of hard drive space running at 7200 rpm. With premium gaming computers housing up to 1.5 tera bytes of memory, this amount isn’t the maximum. The hard drive’s speed is impressive though. 7200 rpm is as fast as any computer should be able to handle. The 15.6-inch display 768p resolution delivers subpar graphs. With HP’s strength being is supplying laptops for those on a budget having higher pixel resolution would bump up the price. For those who aren’t too picky about what they are looking at this display is sufficient. Shooting the images onto the display is AMD Radeon HD 6490M graphic card. This is a decent GPU. Its technology isn’t especially advanced but it has the capabilities to keep any weekend gamer happy.
At 5.8 pounds this laptop is at least mobile. Since it is less expensive compared to many 15-inched display computers, dropping the HP Pavilion dv6t isn’t too devastating. The problem is taking it any friend’s house would seriously compromise your credibility as a serous gamer. There are better laptops out there and hauling this unit around will send a message that you are too cheap too fully invest in your passion.
