HP, the number one brand for PC making has launched their Pavilion dv6 series many years ago and today we have got the Pavilion dv6-t6155tx up for the review.We have been using this laptop for our regular work for more than 15 days and till now it working fine.It has 2nd generation i5 processor with 4GB RAM.750GB HDD is there with RPM of 5400. Currently this laptop is running on Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit but you can manually upgrade it.For gaming purpose it has AMD Radeon HD 6490M 1GB dedicated graphics card.
What’s in the Box:
- Laptop ( 😀 )
- AC adapter
- Carry bag
- User Manual
- Software and Driver disc
Design & Build:
HP dv6-T6155tx’s design is good and the weight of this laptop is just 2.54 Kg.So it is easy to carry around.HP has really added a great finish to this laptop.It feels really very solid in hand.Also HP has added additional light support to it.Light starts blinking whenever we insert the LAN cable.Lower part is fully covered by aluminium which really provides a luxury look to it.Backlit support is also added to it.A fine curve is added to it which really provides it more support and also looks great.Like other HP laptops it has the HP logo embossed on it at the bottom end. Dimension is 378 x 246.8 x 35.2 mm.It is available only in black colour.
Keyboard & Touchpad:
Really nice keypad and touchpad on this laptop.As a blogger we have to really write many contents through out the day and on behalf of that I’s saying that at the end of completion of your work you will not find any kind of pain in your fingers.Backlit touchpad really makes it easy to use it when the light is off.Keys are placed in 6 rows.But some time it feels a bit congested as HP has added both numeric keypad along with the alphabet keys.Specially for gamers it is very hard who use the arrow keys instead of the the keys A,S,D and W as the arrow keys are very small and when you play racing games sometime it is difficult to accelerate as the arrow keys are very small,you can see it below in the image.Touhpad is just fine and no additional layer is added to it but the backlit really marks a good impression.
Display & Graphics:
Dv6-6155tx 15.6 Inch HD LED screen with resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.Display is quite good and is bright.You can change the brightness easily.It doesn’t have a glossy effect but still the display is quite good.For Windows 8 this device is quite good as Windows 8 recommend the above mentioned resolution.If you ask us about its graphics performance then the first word I would say is “AWESOME” and we mean it.AMD’s 1GB Radeon HD 6490M is very powerful and you can play all the latest games on it without any glitch.We have played Call of Duty MW3,GTA 4,Crysis 2,L.A. Noire on this laptop and the performance was just awesome.NO glitch and the characters really look crisp and sharp.We can assure you that the GPU has enough juice to play upcoming games like GTA V and COD’s upcoming versions.Also the graphics card is a dedicated one which means that you can change it any time and in future you can upgrade it from HP’s service center.Overall both display and graphics were great.
OS & more:
Running on Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit version.But you can still upgrade it to the Ultimate version of 7 and it will also support Windows 8.Resolution is great for Windows 8 OS.It has 0.3 megapixel HD webcam and the quality is just great and even it adjust the light it self to provide the best quality. 750GB HDD is there which is quite enough but one big problem is that around local disk C hols more than 600GB it means that if ever your laptop gets infected with virus and makes windows file corrupt then you will loose all you important content when installing windows but you can create partition easily.And don’t worry as Norton Antivirus comes pre-installed with this laptop and the license will expire after 1 year and after that you can either switch or activate the license again.Wi-Fi,Bluetooth,USB ports are there for connectivity options.6 cell battery is there which can power it for more than 4 hours without charge.
Great design,awesome graphics and display.A bit heavy as compared to other laptops,Very good pricing – Rs45,000. Backlit touchpad and chiclet keys really make it easy to use.i5 processor is really good and boosts the performance.You can easily open more that 5 applications at a time and it will not hang.Webcam is really great and the construction is very impressive.Overall we will rate it 4.5/5 and if you are thinking to get it or not then we will recommend you to purchase it as in this range you will not find any other with that much features.Check out the image gallery below to see more images.
