Soccer moms need laptops too

HP's dv6500t's feature set is almost boring compared to most laptops hitting the market these days, but then how many people really need that ASUS Lamborghini? When you consider it in the same light as a ThinkPad, you start to get an idea what HP is thinking. It is highly customizable, with either a C2D T7300 or T7100, it supports up to 4Gb of DDR2-400/533/667 in dual channel mode, and either Intel's GMA X3100 or an nVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS. If you are looking for flexibility and power, and as few extras as possible, AnandTech can tell you more about this 6lb laptop.
"That leads us to the star of today's review, the HP dv6500t. This is a generally no-frills notebook that is more than
able to handle whatever computing task you might want to throw at it, short of gaming and perhaps a few
high-performance applications. In that respect, it's a lot like driving a minivan. It will help you cart your kids
around, but it's not quite as exciting to drive as the latest sports car. The dv6500t is part of HP's Entertainment
notebook line for home and home-office users, though it would have no difficulty functioning in a business environment
as well. Let's take a closer look."
