Battery life not so great on it's own
Other Thoughts: I got this laptop refurbed after first seeing it at Walmart and finding it again here for more than $50 cheaper. I love art & plan on using it for digital art-based software like Photoshop & Paint Tool SAI, so I have my figer crossed about how it handles those (updates later), but looking at pictures & video on it now have me very optimistic.
As I said, there are a lot of great pros to this machine, especially for those with creative purposes in mind, but the 2 cons are notable. Firstly, I only found out after I'd purchased it that the dv6 is prone to overheating issues; I was worried, but it's proved to be a very easy problem to get around. (I use it on a hard surface (large clipboard) with great ventilation & on low settings.) Also, the battery life isn't as long as I'd have liked; 5 hours max. If you're planning on using it on a long car trip or plane ride, make sure it's fully charged first and keep it on low settings! At home, I highly advise that you set up your workspace close to the nearest 3-prong socket & keep it there, especially if you're going to be running any kind of games or software.
Those two mild complaints aside, all in all, she's a fantastic computer for the price. I've only had her for less than week, though - if I don't come back to write a bitter, hate-filled rant cursing both Hewlett-Packard and NewEgg's descendants, then you can assume it had a happy ending. :)
