A Gift She’ll Love for Mother’s Day: HP’s Pavilion dv6

I received an early Mother’s Day present for myself when I got a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop. Hubby had dubbed my old laptop the “running gerbil,” because it was making loud sounds that sounded like a gerbil running on a spinning wheel. (And that was after having had it fixed!) It was over three years old and time for a new one.

I’m now using and loving my HP Pavillion dv6. Gifting to a Mom who needs a new one too, check this laptop out. Here’s a couple of great selling features about it:

1) The price point is fantastic. You can get it at HP.com for $579.99.

2) Love the 15.6″ screen. I was previously using a 14.1″ laptop screen and the additional 1.5 inches really makes for a better user experience.

3) HP Simplepass. Guys, this feature is amazing. There’s a small fingerprint reader on the bottom right of the laptop. (See my photo) When I set my computer up, I scanned all 10 of my fingers so now only my fingerprints are locked into this machine. Each time I come to a website or program that asks for my password, it stores my passwords and they only unlock based on my own personal fingerprint. Pretty awesome, right?

4) BeatsAudio. The built-in speaker system is simply amazing. I love how little tiny built-in speakers can play my music better than those big black speakers we all had growing up, remember? Using BeatsAudio built-in quad speakers, I can listen to my iTunes or Pandora and it sounds great.

5) Intel Core processors, AMD Radeon graphics and optional integrated Blu-ray disc player.

6) Awesome battery life. I haven’t even gotten to the point where I run out of battery life but this battery must have a good 6 hours plus on it as I often pull out the plug and carry it around the house.
