The HP Pavilion DV6-1230US 15.6-inch laptop uses a 2.1Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 processor. For storage, it has a 320 hard drive and a 4GB RAM. The RAM can be upgrade to a maximum of 8GB. This model also comes with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 MHD graphics card.
As for its design, the HP Pavilion DV6-1230US 15.6-inch laptop is one stylish laptop. It is predominantly black in color (glossy surface), decorated with some white circular motifs. It measures at 14.9 x 10.15 x 1.33 inches. Overall, this is one of my favorite HP laptop designs as it manages to be subtle with a hint of distinctiveness.
The 15.6″ screen has a 1366 x 768 resolution. That is pretty good for a laptop of this price. Coupled with the competent graphics card, watching HD videos and playing games on this laptop was a pleasurable experience. Another distinctive feature of this model is its battery.

Currently, this model retails for around $733, a great bargain considering its specs and performance.
