HP Pavilion dv6000z series

With a diagonal 15.4" display, plenty of computing power, and a classy, durable design, the HP Pavilion dv6000z offers an attractive blend of style, mobility, and performance.

Windows Vista has arrived
Get things done, stay connected, and enjoy a variety of entertainment in a secure environment with Windows Vista Home Basic. This cool new operating system even has parental controls and enhanced search tools. For enhanced entertainment, choose Vista Home Premium, which includes Windows Aero, Windows Media Center, and instant search functionality.

Powerful AMD technology
The dv6000z features state-of-the art AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core processors for improved system performance when running multimedia applications at the same time. The AMD processors also offer enhanced virus protection as well as PowerNow! for longer battery life. For less demanding computing needs, choose a single-core Sempron processor.

Hot design
Like its diagonal 14.1" sibling the dv2000z, this notebook has a sophisticated black resin finish with an inlaid wave pattern and latch-free closure. You control the volume and launch buttons simply by tapping or swiping your finger across a strip on the keyboard.

Videoconferencing and VOIP
With this model's optional integrated 1.3 megapixel webcam and dual omni-directional microphones, it's easy to stay in touch with friends and family. Use the webcam with an instant messaging application to have a live conversation with people who have an Internet connection anywhere in the world. Or use a video application to capture video for playback later. You can even use the webcam to take still pictures and e-mail them to friends. The integrated microphone also supports VOIP applications.

Premium digital entertainment
The dv6000z has a diagonal 15.4" high-definition widescreen; the optional BrightView version provides a higher contrast ratio and better viewing with DVD movies and games. The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7200 graphics card provides 256MB TurboCache video memory (64MB discrete + 192MB shared) for ultra-realistic effects and stellar multimedia. High-quality, integrated Altec Lansing stereo speakers let you enjoy your music collection. You also get two stereo headphone jacks (one of which is S/PDIF capable) for connecting to your surround sound audio system for pure digital audio. Optional stereo headphones let you and a friend listen without disturbing others.

Fast and easy media
The dv6000z features HP QuickPlay 3.0, which lets you play movies and music at the touch of a button, as well as access photos. An included remote, which tucks away in the ExpressCard slot, lets you control QuickPlay from up to 10 feet away. Transfer photos from a camera to the dv6000z via the media card reader, then use the Photosmart Premier software to edit, print, organize, share, and store. Select a SuperMulti DVD±RW/R drive and turn pictures into movies, or edit video and create CDs and DVDs. Take it a step further by choosing the LightScribe option on the SuperMulti DVD+/RW/R drive, which is 33 percent faster than the prior version and lets you burn silkscreen-quality labels on discs.

Ports galore
The HP xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base (sold separately) connects your dv6000z to peripherals, including a monitor if you want a desktop experience. Other ports: an integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet1 (RJ-45 connector), three USB 2.0, ExpressCard/54, RJ-11, IEEE 1394 FireWire, S-Video, and consumer IR. For wireless connections, the dv6000z provides integrated 802.11b/g or 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN with optional Bluetooth. Stay connected virtually anytime, anywhere, without having to hunt for hotspots, with the optional Verizon Wireless V740 1XEVDO PC ExpressCard.
