The Good Reasonably portable. Great battery life. Comfortable keyboard and touchpad. Altec Lansing speakers. Quick-launch multimedia buttons. Instant-on DVD playback. Dual front headphone jacks. Integrated webcam and microphone. Bluetooth support. S-Video port for TV out. Firewire port.

The Bad Raw performance is worse than competing offerings. Integrated graphics not suitable for gaming. Can’t be configured with Windows Media Center Edition. Glossy screen becomes reflective when indoors.

The Bottom Line The HP Pavilion dv1600 is an entry-level thin-and-light notebook with a plethora of multimedia features. Its performance troubled us, but the low asking price and impressive battery life are difficult to argue with.
