Good computer except for user input

Comments about HP Pavilion dv6-3120us 15.6-Inch 500GB Hard Drive Entertainment Laptop PC:

I have no complaints about the performance of the machine overall. It's a solid system with enough power for my needs and the battery performance has been excellent overall. Unfortunately, the input devices make this computer a trial to use. First and primary, there is no numpad. There are a number of hotkeys, both in standard Windows and in my development software, that require use of numpad keys, including input of special character without having to pull up Character Map every time. Most laptops allow the user to access the numpad keys by doubling a section of the keys with the FN key, but apparently this was not considered a useful feature by the designers. This was all the more vexing for me because the published specs when I bought claimed this was a 101-key keyboard. Secondly, there's a series of quick access buttons to the left. I have found no use for them in terms of bringing up applications at will, but the Calculator button was located in the same place that the Ctrl key is usually placed, which means that I frequently find myself bring up a calculator instead of inputting a key combination. This is only minorly annoying, but something which should have been caught in testing. Third, the touchpad exhibits the bizarre feature that the buttons at the bottom are also touch-sensitive, which means that anything but the most precise press will also cause the pointer to skew an inch to one side before registering the click. The keys are also not differentiated by touch at the bottom which means that you practically have to look away from the screen every time you choose whether to left or right click, but I'm sure that that's an inadequacy that can be overcome with practice. It's a decent machine, but the user input makes it a trial to use. It is baffling because keyboards and touchpads are not new technology. Practically requiring users to cart USB mice and keyboards to use their laptop is unconscionable. Establishing the touchpad buttons as actual buttons, supporting a complete 101-key keyboard without peripherals, and not shoehorning in the shortcut buttons would have resulted in a much more adequate product.

Comments about HP Pavilion dv6-3120us 15.6-Inch 500GB Hard Drive Entertainment Laptop PC:

I bought this laptop online 3 days ago and I will be returning it tomorrow. 1) Software - I was excited to have windows 7 64-bit OEM but the fresh install does not feel like a fresh install at all due to all the bloat ware that was included. (You can fix these features by buying your own copy of Windows 7) 2) Hardware and Design - The laptop touch pad feels very cheap and acts very finicky for one reason: it is huge and one piece. (You can disable this touch pad very easily at least) Finally, the "action keys" are really poorly placed. It took some searching but I managed to correct the problem by disabling this feature through bios (F10 @ start up, if your wondering). Why it is not easier to modify and adjust in windows? who knows. These keys are very irritating. just Imagine opening media launch guide every time you alt-tab or calculator launches every time you mis-hit shift. Overall: The laptop is full of great features and specifications which look good on paper..Good for casual use and has great features like HDMI but be wary of the usability.
