I like the looks, the screen(yeah, the bright view), the power saver capability, solidness of the laptop.
Initially, the finger print option was not that easy to get registered, but improves in successive scans. I use a BSNL EV-DO 2.4 Mbps connection with it. The only issue was the conflict in drivers. The BSNL guys did not provide any drivers, and I was compelled to download from Internet (the manufacturer of the USB Modem, ZTE, said that they don't have the drivers stored on line :( ) The max speed attained was around 1Mbps - 1.6 Mbps till now.

The dv6701AU is a decent laptop on your pocket as well as regarding performance. So if you are in search of a laptop without much hardcore games, graphical usage, then this is the one for you!

just a note: my father bought my son this style laptop and hes had very good luck with it. It also lasted a long time before giving to the wear an tear of a little boy.

All the laptops are the same, the only difference is the GB of RAM. It Works very well. Having power saver capability would be a great advantage. These would last very long too.

Thanks for the note FG

Carrey.. I dissagree with you..

And adam, the price is 38700 INR

(1 INR = 40 USD)

That price includes the RAM update, USB mouse and a 2 GB kingston thumb :)

I have a HP DV 6000 too. I think HP is great value for money. 2GB Ram and 120 Gb is really more than sufficient.
