All models have the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7150M integrated graphics chipset as their baseline graphics, with the dv9500z an dv6500z having the higher NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS option. The Imprint finish on both lines of notebook computers has changed as well. The HP lineup previously had a Zen garden style finish, which has now changed to a "Radiance" design. The Compaq notebooks previously used an unnamed imprint finish, now changing to the "Trace" design.
