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
Excerpt: If you're looking for a low-cost laptop with a premium look and feel, the Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us delivers impressively at $599. It’s best for casual users and light gamers who don’t need to perform frequent CPU-centric tasks.
Pros: Slim, attractive design for the price, Better graphics than pricier Intel options, USB 3.0 ports, Impressive speakers
Cons: Lacks speedy boot times and app launches of ultrabooks with solid-state storage, CPU performance lags well behind Intel-based machines
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
5 August 2013
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
Excerpt: The Ultrabook market is growing rapidly. But just as quickly as it grows, it segments. The HP Envy 6 can't consider itself an "Ultrabook" because it's not powered by an Intel processor. Instead its "Sleekbook" moniker goes hand in hand with the AMD CPU at its core.
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 Ultrabook 6-1000sg (B6H21EA) (15,6-Zoll-Ultrabook)
21 August 2013
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.
