An Essential for Back to School, the HP Pavilion dv6 |#AClaseConHPyIntel

by Migdalia Rivera

HP Pavilion dv6

Summer is almost over and Ms. Latina’s household is in back to school mode. With that comes a long list filled with necessary items like school clothes, bookbags, shoes and sneakers, etc. etc. Technology is also a big part of what students need to succeed in this day and age. Knowing this, I was extremely excited to receive an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop for review (and a giveaway!).

Since I haven’t had much time to use all of the laptop’s features, I can’t do a full review. I can, however, tell you that the machine is ready to go right out the box! Just pop in the battery, plug it in and get ready to use this powerhouse.

The screen, a whooping 15″ diagionally, is high definition. The laptop also has the latest Intel 2nd generation core processors, which means that you can have a few tabs open at once (like I normally do!) and not have to worry that the HP Pavilion dv6 will slow down.

I also love that a free 60-day Norton Internet Security subscription is included with the laptop. I learned the hard way that this is REQUIRED when anyone, especially children, use a computer. This, along with the HP SimplePass fingerprint reader, a built in fingerprint reader that auto-populates passwords for online accounts and websites, protect you and your family’s information.

There are so many other features that I can’t wait to tell you about so stay tuned for my review of the HP Pavilion dv6 laptop and one very, very, sweet giveaway!

I need a bright screen and a decent amount of RAM. Hard drive size is not as important to me as it is to my son, who somehow *needs* 500G!

Thank you for the chance! I’d love to win this for my Mama. She’s still getting the hang of using a laptop, so this would be perfect for her. :)
