The deal: HP 3138tx - great price Core i3 allrounder notebook - $797.00
The HP Pavilion dv6-3138tx allrounder notebook for $797 is very good value for money thanks to the great specs. It has a fast Intel Core i3-370M (2.4GHz) processor that can smoothly play HD movies, and is as fast as low-end Intel Core i5s. An ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 is a lower end graphics card, but along with 4GB of RAM it can run new games like StarCraft 2 on low settings with no difficulties.
A 320GB hard drive is fair enough for the price, and as long as you don’t have a massive movie or music collection it should be sufficient. The 15.6in (1,366x768 resolution) screen will provide good viewing quality with HD movies and just computer usage in general. Overall it weighs 2.49kg, and measures 36mm thick, 245mm deep, and 378mm wide.
Allrounder notebooks need good processors along with good graphics cards, and for $797 the HP Pavilion dv6-3138tx handily ticks both boxes. There are no compromises in the specs for the price, so if you want a low-end allrounder notebook this is one of the best current ways to do it.
