The only thing that lets this AMD dv6 down is its all-but-casual gaming performance, although to be fair it’s not been designed for anything more demanding in this sphere. More to the point, the HP Pavilion dv6-6b06sa is a good all-rounder...

On balance, Sandy Bridge is the more desirable hardware. However, there is a sting in the tail: as I've said, the Intel laptop retails for about £629, while the AMD version only costs £500. Windows 7 rates the latter with an Experience Index of 5.9,...

You can’t argue with the specification of the HP Pavilion dv6-6103sa, though the top-notch components do put it slightly outside of the price range of this group test. That said, it is a worthy inclusion because it blends style with substance and...

The HP Pavilion dv6-6110us is an AMD-based desktop replacement that delivers better-than-average graphics performance for a budget notebook. It will give you six hours of battery life, but it's light on features and the CPU can't keep up with...

We were happy to finally hold an APU based notebook with a higher performance than the netbooks and office devices released to date (E350, C50) in our hands. There's not much to complain about in terms of application performance. It's more than...

De HP Pavilion dv6-6b75ed heeft sterke en zwakke kanten. Fraai is de metalen afwerking van de behuizing. Minder fraai is dat het kunststof randje daaromheen slap is en dat het toetsenbord te flexibel is. Had dat beter geweest, dan had deze notebook...

Vendu 499 euros, le Pavilion dv6-6148sf propose moins de mémoire, une partie graphique moins puissante que le dv6-6149sf, mais coûte 100 euros de moins, et s’offre 10 minutes de liberté supplémentaire sur batterie. Ce portable...

De HP Pavilion dv6-6105 is de eerste productielaptop met AMD Llano die we hebben kunnen testen. De A6 3410MX-processor in combinatie met de AMD Radeon HD 6750M biedt interessante prestaties. De processorprestaties vallen tegen, zeker als je bedenkt...

Lange hat es gedauert, bis AMD auf die Vormachtstellung der preiswerten Mobilprozessoren der Sandy-Bridge-Generation reagiert hat. Allerdings bestätigt das HP dv6-6110sg auf Seiten der neuen APU nahezu alle Eindrücke, die wir bereits anhand...

A l'heure où nous écrivons ces lignes, l'APU Llano d'AMD est encore très peu utilisée par les constructeurs, Intel croquant une très large part du gâteau avec ses nouveaux Core Sandy Bridge. Pourtant, HP est de...
