Sleek look, simple controls
The 6.14 lb. dv6500z sports a glossy, black resin finish and our "Radiance" pattern, plus features latch-free closure. You can control the volume and launch applications by simply tapping on or swiping your finger across a strip on the keyboard.

Fingerprint security (optional)
Goodbye multiple passwords. Just swipe your finger across the optional integrated reader on the side of the panel to log on to your dv6500z and to password-protected Web sites and documents.

Easy videoconferencing
Stay in touch with friends and family using the optional, integrated, low-light VGA webcam and two omni-directional microphones.

Made for entertainment
This notebook's 15.4" high-definition widescreen facilitates viewing; the BrightView option provides a higher contrast ratio and better viewing with DVD movies and games. An Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS graphics card with 383MB of dedicated video memory delivers best-in-class video for games and multimedia, and you also get integrated Altec-Lansing stereo speakers. The integrated HDMI port (available only with discrete graphics option) lets you view high-definition content on your HD TV (cable sold separately).

Equipped for games and movies
Configure your dv6500z with an optional HD DVD1 drive for astonishing, 1080p resolution when viewing on an HD TV with HDMI notebook connection. HD DVD resolution is far superior to that of regular DVDs, and even superior to what you'll see on most HD TVs.

Music, photos, and videos
The dv6500z features HP QuickPlay 3.2, which lets you launch DVDs, music, and photos at the touch of a button. An included remote, which tucks away in the ExpressCard slot, lets you control QuickPlay from up to 10 feet. Transfer photos from your camera to the dv6500z via the optional 5-in-1 digital media card reader, then use our Photosmart Premier software for editing, printing, organizing, sharing, and storing of photos. If you pick a Super Multi DVD±RW/R drive, you can turn your photos into movies, plus edit video and create CDs and DVDs. Choose the LightScribe option on the DVD±RW/R drive to laser-etch labels on CDs and DVDs as you create them.
