Without any modifications, this customized laptop delivers all the goods in a slim and sleek design. Bluetooth can also be added if not already included, but requires opening the case to connect the bluetooth card.
There is a noticable amount of warmth and noise despite the number of vents on the bottom and back of the dvt. Finally, three small lights in the bottom left corner show power, charging state, and drive activity. Light leakage is undetectable.
There is also a firewire mini port, and external vga connector. The case does not heat up beyond what I would call warm during even intense operation. The touchpad, of all places, remains warmer than the surroundings whenever the laptop is on. The case is plastic but feels solid, with the top a shiny black coated plastic and the base a more standard matte black.

Running a demo of Armed Assault requires most settings turned down to medium for a smooth experience. The included media center remote.
The express card slot has a plastic placeholder rather than a true cover, but the media center remote is stored in this slot, anyway, so a cover would be superfluous. Rate and comment on specific criteria. Again unapologetically inserting my opinion here, I do not expect much out of the built-in speakers of a laptop.

HP Pavilion dv review – Engadget
Brightness and contrast are outstanding. Dv600 keys travel a good distance, and a slight, unobtrusive noise accompanies each movement. The mute button turns orange when activated, as does the icon above the touchpad when disabled via a hard button. I do not have the time to play too many games during the normal week anyway, but this card does manage to handle the older games I have.

HP Pavilion dv6500 15.4in. Notebook/Laptop – Customized
This item doesn’t belong on this page. This is a great laptop. The hinges are solid and keep the screen in place.
I am pleased with the apparent quality of the dvt, but only time will truly tell how it fares. In other words, if you are taxing the processor, expect a fair amount of fan noise. A microfiber cloth comes standard, and neat freaks, including myself, will wipe down the top and area around the screen at least a few times a day.
I have found that in a dark room with the brightness at full, I have to squint due to the amount of light coming from the display. Aero effects in Vista run smoothly. Available in the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system, this Pavilion laptop renders fast processing, thereby redefining speed no matter what you do.
