HP Pavilion dv6 (6C35TX)

The Good Has a professional finish not usually seen on a budget laptop. Battery life is great for the price and hardware involved.

The Bad Keyboard isn't as tight as HP's previous efforts.

The Bottom Line HP has managed to out something that not only comes in at under AU$1000, but also doesn't sacrifice on quality or battery life. The dv6 comes recommended.

HP Pavilion dv6 (6C35TX)

Nudging in at just under AU$1000, HP's newest dv6 is quite decent, considering the price point. If you're willing to spend more, it's also available in a swathe of different configurations that offer more storage or power.

The deep-bronze brushed aluminium and subtle curves work well, with the Pavilion looking more like a premium laptop than an entry-level one. This perception is enhanced by the light around the track pad, although sadly the keyboard doesn't light up.
