HP Pavilion DV6835TX

The HP Pavilion DV6835TX delivers stylish looks and a quality build for the notebook enthusiast.

Gone are the days where laptop computers were the mainstay of the successful business executive. These days anyone from a five year old child to your old aged grandmother can be found pecking away at a keyboard or using their laptop computer for any number of entertainment options.

The latest laptops have become entertainment hubs where users can watch TV, upload and share photos, screen the latest movie releases, play games solo and online; and still deliver the more practical business solutions you’ve come to expect from mobile computing hardware.

This latest laptop computer from HP – the Pavilion DV6835TX, delivers slick business functionality whilst serving up fantastic entertainment options for the home user. The HP Pavilion DV6835TX is as stylish on the outside as it is on the inside. The sleek black case features a subtle black imprint design, reminding you that HP is not just about quality features, but good looks as well.

The laptop itself is a humdinger for the entertainment enthusiast. One of the first laptops on the market to feature a Bluray Drive, the HP Pavilion dv6835TX, also features a 15.4 inch high definition widescreen and comes coupled with a remote control (which slots into the base of the unit so you don’t lose it) so you can be watching movies in High Defintion before you can say Yes Please!. The dv6835TXcomes preloaded with Windows Vista Ultimate so home theatre enthusiasts can set up the Windows Media Centre to control all their entertainment needs. Feel like recording some live TV? Thanks to the HDMI inputs you can do just that – and capture footage from your TV for viewing later. Want to listen to your favourite music? Well there’s plenty of room on the harddrive for you to store all your cds. And if you don’t have stereo system – not to worry – you’ll be more than happy with the sound output from the Altec Lansing speakers.

When it comes to graphics, gamers won’t be disappointed either, the DV6835TX has a superior graphic card, the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS meaning the games on this number will run exactly as the designers intended them too, with no delay and perfect response.

Throw in 4GB of memory, allowing all your media to be processed at high speed, a high speed modem, wireless internet and bluetooth capacity for instant connection pretty much everywhere, and you have a serious entertainment unit in a small, compact case.

Inbuilt webcam and microphone finish off this purpose built entertainment and media notebook, making it ideal for staying in touch with those long lost relatives overseas or the occasional web conference meeting.

Weighing in at just 2.7 kilograms, it’s still light enough to carry around with you and I promise you when you pull this out on the plane, your going to get plenty of looks of envy.


  • High speed processor and plenty of memory to keep you working at a fast pace
  • Blu-Ray Player for home theatre fans


  • A little large to be carrying around with you full time – although you won’t get this sort of screen size and definition and this many specs any lighter…
