HP Pavilion dv6000 Entertainment Notebook PC

The newly-designed HP Pavilion dv6000 15.4″ widescreen Entertainment Notebook PC combines mobility, power and entertainment in a new design.  This design is the same as that seen with the recent release of the dv2000.  It features an HP Imprint finish, the dv6000 ‘s subtle “wave” pattern was influenced by Zen rock gardens and compliments the stylish, curvilinear design.  The coloring is high-gloss piano black on the outside with polished silver on the inside.  HP claims that the new resin finish is more durable than standard options.  The dv6000 design also features back-lit, touch-sensitive media controls that are activated by a touch or tap of a finger.
