  • This common problem affects the DV6000 series

      This is the review of the HP Pavilion DV6629wm. First, let us go over the pros

      The laptop comes with a nice sized keyboard with lots of function keys. The shift and enter keys are well sized. Now a real plus is that it does not get that much gunk in the keyboard.

      Now to the processor specification, the 1900 MHz (1.9 GHz) processor is strong enough to play most recent games. It

      is also perfect for web browsing and typical work programs.

      Now to the 15.1-inch screen, it is OK for indoor use, but if you want to use it outside, think again. There is too much glare when it is used in sunlight. There are upgrades that can make it a matte screen.

      Now that you have read all of the pros of this system, let us check out what makes it horrible.

      Sound, you ...

      • do not notice it until it is gone. The laptop that I am currently writing on (DV6629wm) sound has failed after 5 months. This common problem affects the DV6000 series.

        The graphics on the system is not that great. It has an on board chip set (GoForce 7165 to be exact) so do not except to run modern games. However, it is great for basic tasks and simple games.

        The manufacturer installed

        ram amount is very little, about 873 usable Megabytes, which isn’t a lot when you are running Windows Vista

        One of the biggest problems that also plagues the DV6000 series is Windows Vista. It slows down the already slow hardware.

        Even though that it claims to be an entertainment laptop, it is more suited for college and high school students.

        I would not buy this laptop again or for the matter of fact another hp laptop.
