Hello everyone,

Hope you are doing well,

I want to buy a new laptop. One of my acquaintances recommended this one:

HP Pavilion DV6853

Compared to my 40 GB burned-out laptop this one seems great and affordable. What do you think?

All opinions are welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Hello nigglesnush85, thanks for answering my question. I thought that it's a good device however you said that it "should be capable of doing most things". What are the things that it can't do? Could you be a little bit more elaborate?

Thanks again :thumbsup:

Speaking of elaborate. What are your intentions for the laptop? Games, video editing, etc.?

Usual stuff (writing, photo + video editing but no games). However to be a little bit honest, I don't know a lot about computers that's why I am asking for advice. I don't want to be scammed :thumbsup:!

It should be fine for your needs and does have a decent graphics processor. I would say the price is OK for the system too.
Regards,

Alan.
