HP Pavilion dv6723tx

HP’s flagship in the dv6000 series is undeniably an attractive notebook. With a bronze-coloured exterior case embossed with discreet patterns and a stainless steel-looking keyboard, it’s enough to draw glances from across the room.

Knowing full well that looks alone are no key to success, HP has spared little expense when outfitting this notebook. While the components aren’t the absolute highest available, the combination of what is there made for an impressive WorldBench 6 result of 84.

The HP’s innards contain an Intel Core2Duo T7500 processor, 2GB of RAM and an 8400Mobile GS video card sporting 256MB of dedicated memory. It has the usual ports and a card reader, but the connection we’re really interested in is of the HDMI kind. Using the notebook’s Blu-ray drive, you can output high definition video to a large screen display, or simply watch it on the 15.4-inch widescreen. In addition, HP has included the ability to play DVDs or Blu-rays discs without actually booting the computer into Windows, saving time and battery life. A handy remote control fits snugly into the notebook’s express card slot providing wireless control over your movie watching – handy if you do end up plugging the Pavilion into a big screen TV.

Battery life is pretty much standard and we squeezed just over two hours out of the notebook with our DVD playback test, a figure that would be significantly increased if a more robust power saving plan was employed.

Storage is well taken care of thanks to a generous 250GB hard drive.

Overall, the Pavilion dv6723tx is a very solid notebook. It looks great, is packed with high end features and performs well, the only downside being the added bulk all these goodies bring with them.
