Review HP Envy 6-1000sg Ultrabook

12 September 2012
  • Summary: More than just an Ultrabook? Most Ultrabook buyers have to sacrifice performance in favor of enhanced mobility. HP's Envy 6 bucks the trend, and aims to woo gamers with a dedicated graphics card, all while delivering good value for money. Unfortunately, the slim 15-inch model isn't much use outdoors.
  • Pros: high applications performance, gaming capability, SSD cache, decent speakers, good workmanship, long battery life, Unlike most of its rivals, the Envy 6 is ready for more than just web browsing and mobile work: The dedicated Radeon graphics card  qualifies the Ultrabook as a combile companion for the next LAN party. Gamers may not always be able to play at the highest settings, but the HD 7670M beats the integrated HD Graphics 4000 by a mile.
  • Cons: glossy and dim display, limited choice of connectors, GPU throttling on battery, slow and low range wifi, As we've seen so often, it's the display that prevents a better rating: poor contrast, glossy and much too dark, it's the weak spot of an otherwise pretty decent notebook.

HP Envy 6t-1000 Ultrabook Review

28 August 2012
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for a lighter than average 15” screen laptop but don’t have the $2,000 to spend on a MacBook Pro with Retina Display then the $749 Envy 6t could be a decent half priced substitute.  The design is appealing, the midnight black color is professional while the red trim gives it a sporty look.  The audio quality is above average for both 15” laptops and Ultrabooks and the number of ports you get is also great.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000 review

22 August 2012
  • Summary: HP's Sleekbooks are a line of higher-end systems based on AMD processors. These notebooks are slim, light, and have a cool, ultramodern design. But the Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000 isn't super high-end: it has an AMD processor and 4GB of RAM, and it costs just £549. In other words, it's the perfect notebook for people who care more about looks and price than processor speed. The looks are even a notch above the slim and similar-looking Acer Timeline Ultra M5.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000

PC Magazine
1 August 2012
  • Conclusion: HP has positioned its AMD-powered HP Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000 as a lower-priced alternative to Intel-certified ultrabooks. Unfortunately, the axiom that "you get what you pay for" applies here. It's underpowered, has a mediocre screen, and may feel slow even when brand new.
  • Pros: Less expensive than ultrabooks. Good port selection. Metal construction
  • Cons: Sluggish performance. Loaded with bloatware. Low-resolution display. Screen door effect on display. Fingerprint magnet.

HP ENVY 6t-1000 review – the 15.6 inch ultrabook

23 July 2012
  • Summary: If you want a 15.6 inch ultrabook, the HP ENVY 6 provides solid value for the buck. It's sleek, light and nicely built and fast enough for the average daily tasks. However, HP could have worked on the details, as the screen, keyboard or trackpad are merely average.
  • Pros: slim and light for a 15.6 inch laptop, good looking and nicely put together, fast enough for daily use and multimedia, good speakers, decent battery life
  • Cons: The screen, keyboard and trackpad are only average, not as fast as other laptops in this class, easily catches fingerprints

HP Envy 6-1001tx review: a big, Sandy Bridge-based notebook with discrete graphics, lots of RAM and plenty of storage

Good Gear Guide.au
15 September 2012
  • Summary: HP's Envy 6-1001tx is an Ultrabook that's large, but it just squeezes into Intel's requirements for thickness. It's a good model to consider if you want a thin and reasonably light notebook for gaming. You get a good configuration with lots of RAM, storage and graphics power, but it doesn't have an Ivy Bridge CPU. It's a notebook that's well built and it feels good to use. It just needs a better screen and Wi-Fi adapter.
  • Pros: Good configuration, Well built, Good input devices
  • Cons: Poor screen, Single-band Wi-Fi, Inconsistent performance

HP Envy 6 Ultrabook review

29 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The HP Envy 6 is a good-looking, capable laptop that's on the chunky side for an ultrabook, but makes up for it with its sturdy build, solid performance and above-average sound quality.
  • Pros: Stylish good looks, Intel Ivy Bridge processor, decent performance, 2x USB 3.0 ports, good battery life.
  • Cons: Screen could be higher spec, sound could be better.
