Review HP Envy 6-1000sg Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
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 review – the 15.6 inch ultrabook

UltrabookReview
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

wired.co.uk
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.

HP Envy 6 Sleekbook

Pocket Lint
2 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The HP Envy 6 wraps up reasonable capabilities into a decent-looking, if not rather plasticky body. It’s not going to be the very fastest or most able machine, but then what this Sleekbook lacks in higher-end features it makes up for in its price. We’re fond of the USB 3.0 ports and the comfortable keyboard, but the so-so screen resolution and middling performance don’t necessarily see the HP shake off its "average and functional" badge.
  • Pros: Affordable, USB 3.0, looks good considering the price, bright screen, SD card slot, two finger trackpad
  • Cons: So-so screen resolution, no optical drive, plasticky build quality, average performance (though that will suit many buyers’ needs)

TEST: HP Envy 6: Lett og stilig 15-tommer

PC World
27 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Ultrabærbare tar over markedet i flere segmenter. Hvorvidt man skal kalle det ultrabærbare blir en egen diskusjon – uansett får man i hvert fall noe lettere, tynnere og stiligere pc-er i disse segmentene.
  • Pros: Kurant ytelse og batteritid. Lett og tynn 15,6-tommers pc.
  • Cons: Skjerm. Noe lav wlan-ytelse.

Test: HP Envy Ultrabook 6-1000sg (B6H21EA) (15,6-Zoll-Ultrabook)

CHIP Online
10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Für einen vergleichsweise günstigen Preis bietet das HP Envy Ultrabook 6-1000sg solide Hausmannskost und leistet sich im Test keinen einschneidenden Fehler. Die Mobilitätswertung leidet allerdings unter dem großen 15,6-Zoll-Display - es macht das HP größer und schwerer als viele andere Modelle dieser Kategorie. Sehr ordentliche Laufzeiten von über 8 Stunden im Office-Betrieb trösten darüber aber weg.
  • Pros: Gute Laufzeiten, Ordentliche Ausstattung, Aktuelle Plattform
  • Cons: Schwaches Display, Relativ groß und schwer
