The HP Pavilion dv6z Select Edition is a high-end multimedia notebook laptop similar to the HP Pavilion dv6t Select Edition. The dv6z Select Edition is practically the same as the dv6t except that it has only AMD processor options rather than Intel, namely AMD Turion Dual Core and AMD Phenom Dual and Triple Core processors as well as no Blu-ray RW drive option. Otherwise, its 4-8GB of DDR3 RAM, 15.6" diagonal High Definition LED HP Brightview Display (1366x768) and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 and 5650 graphics processor options all match the dv6t Select Edition.

At its base configuration, the dv6z Select Edition can easily handle typical day-to-day use, from web browsing to word processing, with ease thanks to its 4GB of RAM and its AMD Turion II Dual-Core Mobile Processor P520 (2.3GHz, 2MB L2 Cache). It is even capable of HD media playback thanks to its ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 graphics processor as well as Blu-ray playback with its optional Blu-Ray ROM drive. At its highest configuration, the dv6z would still be a very capable gaming machine although its performance would be somewhat outmatched by the dv6t Special Edition's Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor.
