Overall, this laptop has exceeded my expectations; the 6GB memory is exceptional, the i3 is fast enough for graphic work and programs were easy to install, media player runs beautifully, 750GB HD gives room to maneuver, and the screen is awesome! I am more than pleased with this purchase.
Contrast-rich display, Decent gaming performance
The Pavilion g6-2200sg is a good deal and a decent notebook for all looking for a cheap general purpose notebook. It delivers fair system performance, which suffices for most users, works quietly under low load and comes with a contrast-rich display. Furthermore, the Pavilion is also interesting for gamers who do not like to spend 800 to 1000 Euro ( $1050 to $1300) for a fancy gaming computer.
Great monitor for the price
I bought two of these for my new PC build, I am a student so i wanted a dual monitor setup so i could do research on one screen while writing on the other and i must say i am very happy with these. Screens look great and again if your looking for a dual monitor setup that wont break the bank these are a nice option.
Build Quality, Battery, Price
The HP Pavilion g6 is a good budget notebook. While there aren't a ton of standout features and extras, it also doesn't have any major issues. Budget notebooks need to cut corners somewhere to come in at an affordable price and HP chose the right places to trim when they made the g6. Students and average home users in need of an affordable notebook should look at the g6, especially as part of back to school and Black Friday promotions.
Decent all-around performance
The HP Envy 4-1043cl ultrabook offers plenty of fine features, like Beats Audio, WiDi 2.0, and generous offerings in software and warranty, not to mention a strong performance boost from Intel's latest third-generation processor. Still, we expected a higher quality display and longer battery life from HP's premium laptop line.
Flawless keyboard and precise touchpad
Great on the outside, mediocre in all other aspects: the HP Envy 4-1000sg is a mix of good and bad. HP's chassis are usually quite decent - and the Envy 4 is no exception: the aluminum used for the lid and around the palm rest not only looks very classy (and quite suitable for an Ultrabook), but also does its part in making the notebook quite rigid and sturdy. The keyboard and the touchpad also manage to convince.
Sleek and lightweight design
For $799, the HP Envy 4-1030us is a highly portable and stylish Ultrabook that provides snappy performance at a reasonable price. Add to that excellent audio, a comfy backlit keyboard, a cool-running chassis and fairly long battery life, and this could easily be one of our favorite value-priced Ultrabooks. We're just concerned about quality control. If the lid didn't rub against the back of the chassis on the units we tried, we would likely make this system a top pick.
Solid performer with excellent speakers
The HP Envy 4 is aptly named. It's a solid machine, with good performance scores, excellent speakers and audio enhancement software, and a mediocre screen, keyboard, and trackpad. The only big drawback is the battery life, which is disappointingly under 6 hours, despite HP's tantalizing promise of 9. Luckily, the power block is small enough to carry with you, though plugging in the laptop might cramp the Envy's style.
Sexy design, Sounds great, Very affordable
The HP Envy 4 is certainly one of the most affordable Ultrabooks we've seen. It's got a sleek design and the power is more than enough for basic office tasks and enjoying media on the move.
The Beats Audio and black metallic finish give this Ultrabook some street cred, and it's light and slim enough not to give you any trouble if you want to carry it around for a day.
Aggressive price, a sleek design for a budget laptop, strong battery life
HP's Envy 4 is an attractive, affordable type of ultrabook with a basic but solid set of features, even if it lacks the speed of more expensive alternatives in our entry-level configuration. Your best bet is to pay more for a faster version, or consider the even more affordable larger-screened AMD Sleekbook 6 instead.
Attractive design, Very lightweight & compact
The HP Envy 4-1030us is a new Ultrabook that caught our eye because of its sleek design, Beats Audio and strong set of internal components. While we were impressed with most of what this new comer had to offer, we were disappointed at a strange design flaw and a poor display.
Attractive black-and-red exterior, Good touchpad
We're a bit confused about why HP has decided to take the Envy line down-market. Luxury pricing for luxury products was the entire point, and there's no reason why the Envy 4 could not have been a very nice Pavilion. HP's decision to market nearly the same PC as both an Ultrabook and a Sleekbook is also confusing.
Branding nonsense aside, this is a solid entry in the Ultrabook category. It's one of the most attractive options, and also has better battery life than many competitors.
Very good application performance
Initially we asked the question: how should a mini EliteBook look, adhering to the quality standard of the series? Half of this and half of that would be the answer. Case, input devices, and run times meet the high expectations. What amazes us: after the throttling problems of the 14-inch sister model 8460p (2011) now even the smallest member of the series comes without any such performance losses.
Keyboard is pleasant to use
I don't think the price tag on the 2170p is that terrible provided the 25% off eCoupon is in place, but I have a hard time really recommending this notebook regardless. That's rough, because HP isn't presently offering a solid alternative to it. The Folio 13 was a pretty solid ultrabook when it was available, but their new Folio is a 14" model and half a pound heavier.
Above Average Hard Drive Capacity, Better Integrated Graphics
HP's Pavilion g6-1d80nr differs from most because it uses an AMD Fusion processor. While it doesn't have as high of performance as Intel based laptops at this price point, it does offer better graphics performance which may be useful for some buyers. It also features more storage space than others at this price point but it does lack the USB 3.0 ports found on many new laptops used for high speed external storage.
Good mix of performance as well as value-for-money
The HP Pavillion g6 is a solid product, which has a good mix of performance as well as value-for-money. Most users would opt for a 14-inch or 15-inch notebook for around Rs. 35,000 but spending that little more in the case of the HP Pavilion g6 means you get a more solid graphics performance. Of course, if you're only looking for regular browsing and the occasional HD movie playback, you could do without it.
More like a Netbook than an Ultrabook
Great battery life but awful performance. I bought this mainly because of the battery life. I thought this was a good alternative for macbook air. I was wrong. I enjoy opening multiple windows when I do my work. This laptop can't handle the multitask aspect. My internet browsers crushes at least 2 times a day. I spent $400 for a Toshiba before and it did a better job than this laptop. Overall, it is very slow and not worth the price. This feels more like a netbook than the ultrabook.
Backlight always on for WiFi and Keyboard Light Keys
The Envy 4t seems like a good compromise between cost and features. It's not as uber thin or light as an Ultrabook, but the Ultrabooks you are going to find in the $700 price range like the Toshiba Portege Z or Acer Aspire S3 don't offer a design that's as appealing as the Envy, nor do they feel as robust. What the Envy 4t does give you is an attractive look with the brushed metal and red bottom. At $700, it won't break the bank.
High performance, Ample RAM, Not very power hungry
Since the price-performance ratio is very good, we are inclined to overlook some of the weaknesses. Overall we can recommend the system - with some caveats. Competing (and similarly equipped) models, like the Dell Inspiron 17R-SE or Lenovo G780 retail for 50 to 100 Euro more. On the other hand, there's competition from within: the less expensive HP Pavilion g7-2051sg is probably sufficient for many users.
More Compact Than Most Budget Laptops
While the list price of the HP Pavilion dv4-4270is is over $600, it is easy to fine this system for under $600. At this price point, it offers a good deal of portability compared to the competition thanks to the 14-inch screen but it doesn't sacrifice much to achieve this. The laptop offers more memory, hard drive space and longer battery life than many similarly priced systems.
