We know you love to watch high-def videos and listen to music on your notebook. With the Pavilion dv6-6105TX, you not only get a Blu-Ray drive to enjoy those full HD videos, but also good audio with Beats Audio and quad speakers. A powerful Intel Core i7-2630QM processor and a Radeon HD 6770M GPU rounds up this entertainment machine. Alternatively if you can make do without the Blu-ray drive, Beats Audio and settle for a lower-class discrete GPU, the dv6-6144TX goes for $200 less.
