    The 15.4 and 17-inch iterations of HP's consumer-centric Pavilion line of laptops have gotten another update from two less-than jaw dropping, at least performance-wise, machines. Both the DV6000 and DV9000 come out of the box with an ExpressCard slot, Altec Lansing speakers, an optional webcam, a 5-in-1 media readers and your choice of an AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core or a plain old AMD Sempron processor. The 7.8-pound DV9000 (replacing the DV8000) sports a 17-inch WXGA (yuck) or WSXGA screen, a dual hard disk configuration and NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics. The 6.5-pound DV6000 (replacing the DV5000) rocks a 15.4-inch WXGA screen, as well as the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7200 card, for a starting price around $850. Things get slightly more impressive on the outside, with same piano black, Zen rock garden-inspired design as the smaller DV2000. The DV6000 is available on HP's website right now for a starting price of $879, but you'll have to sit and meditate a little longer while they prepare the DV9000. 

    Like all the laptops in the HP Pavilion line, the dv6000's sleek design and shiny finish hold their own next to systems from style-conscious manufacturers such as Apple and Sony. Aside from its good looks, the dv6000 also provides a solid set of entertainment features and high-end components for a fair price. Those components didn't result in record-breaking performance, and its battery life was below average. For these reasons we recommend the Pavilion dv6000 for home users who want a laptop with basic entertainment features and who don't plan to spend a lot of time away from the power outlet. The HP Pavilion dv6000 measures 14 inches wide, 10.1 inches deep, and 1 inch thick--about the same size as the Dell Inspiron E1505 and the PC Club Enpower ENP680.

    How to Extend Laptop Battery Life on your HP Pavilion DV2000,DV6000, DV9000, TX1000?

    Laptop computer batteries often run out of power sooner than would be desired. Here are some tips for making them last longer between charges... 

    Screensaver: Change your laptop's screensaver to a blank (Black) screen, and set it to turn on within a few minutes of inactivity. Screensavers with graphics and sound effects will drain the power more quickly, whereas a blank screen will conserve power.

    Hard Drive & Disk Drive: Avoid using the hard drive and disk drive excessively. Because these are mechanical mechanisms, they consume more power. In some cases, upgrading the amount of memory will reduce hard drive usage. If your pavilion dv6000 series laptop is set to run anti-virus scans periodically, only allow this to happen when you have it connected to AC power, because this substantially increases hard drive usage while it is running. If you are using an older laptop with no hard drive, consider using a VDISK or RAMDISK (read more here) to reduce disk drive usage. 

    Sound/Music: If you want to listen to music while operating the computer, consider using a separate radio, cassette recorder, or CD player. If the CD player's batteries run out, you will be able to keep using the computer, which is probably your higher priority.

    USB Devices: If your hp pavilion dv6000 series laptop computer has a USB port, keep in mind that some USB devices draw power from the computer's battery while they are plugged in to it. Avoid leaving such devices plugged in longer than they need to be. 

    Software: Different software which accomplishes the same functions may cause your hp pavilion dv6000 series battery computer to use different amounts of power. If the software utilizes memory more effectively (rather than reading/writing to the disk or hard drive frequently), it may use less power. Software which places less demand on the processor can also reduce power consumption in some cases, along with programs which use a dark-colored background. Avoid running software directly from a 3.5" disk or CD-ROM, because it will cause these mechanisms to run frequently and drain the power more quickly.
