For $846 the 15.6in HP Pavilion dv6-6135tx allrounder is an affordable powerhouse. It combines a fast 2nd Gen Intel Core i7 processor with a powerful AMD Radeon HD 6770M dedicated graphics card. This combination will blitz through intensive software and modern games. The other specs are only normal by comparison (like 4GB of RAM and a 640GB hard disk drive) but for such a low price the overall package on offer is still really good value. This special expires today.
The 6135tx has a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2630QM (2GHz), a high-end processor that is able to run intensive software and productivity applications without any difficulty. It can burst up to 2.9GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology if a particularly demanding program is running.
The dedicated graphics card is the AMD Radeon HD 6770M. It’s one of the fastest mid-range AMD cards, and most modern games will run smoothly at high settings.
4GB of RAM is the minimum for smooth system performance and multitasking. This will be sufficient for reasonably intensive image and video editing tasks as well.
The 640GB hard disk drive is pretty large by notebook standards, with plenty of room for programs and documents.
It has a 15.6in (1,366x768 resolution) gloss screen, which is about average for the price point.
Weighing 2.54kg and 35.2mm thick, the 6135tx has average portability. It'll be straightforward to carry around.
