I really like this laptop and would recommend it to anyone looking for a budget notebook to give them access to the Internet, decent games and a workstation. I picked up the DV6000 in the UK for around the 400-pound mark and it has served me well as a desktop replacement while working abroad.
It looks good and feels good with a tactile silky texture, has a 15.4 inch high-resolution screen that is easy on the eyes and has decent in-built speakers which I found fine for gaming.
It has good specs for a notebook, which can handle even fairly demanding modern games (it has an Nvidia GeForce Go 7500). By way of example, I played Neverwinter Nights 2 on the DV6000; whilst I did have to turn most of the graphic settings right down, the game ran fine and was fully playable (and Neverwinter Nights 2 is known as a fairly demanding game).
It offers several Internet options; Ethernet, modem or firewire. I was delighted to find that my local area overseas had wireless coverage and was able to enjoy a high-speed connection immediately.
The mouse and keyboard is a joy; light-touch and silky smooth it felt far more up-market than the price I paid; again I have gamed without needing an external mouse or speakers and found the experience none the less for that.
The DV6000 is great for DVDs and listening to music - recommend headphones when playing CDs though, as the speakers do lack punch in this regard.
It also has a built in web cam and the speakers work as microphones, enabling you to phone people for free over the Internet (just install the free software); video conferencing is also made easy.
It has Firewire, VGA and S-Video ports and 3 USB ports, as well as Micro-jack and 2 headphone jacks (great for watching a film with girlfriend/boyfriend) and Lightscribe feature which enables you to burn DVDs.
Only negative would have to be the battery life, which is around 2.5 hours and the fact that it does warm-up a fair bit after prolonged use. Aside from this, HP's DV6000 is a very slick, high performing laptop for the price.
