Comments about Hewlett Packard Pavilion 15.6" DV6-6C50US Entertainment Notebook PC - Intel Core i5-2450M Proc.:
This is our youngest son's laptop for college next fall. I feel it provided the most bang for the buck, and our son is pleased....so far. We purchased an HP for our older Engineering college son 2 years ago and it has held up well. This laptop is more capable and was less expensive...good combination.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
