HP Envy 6-1001tu
13 October 2012
Excerpt: Globally, the HP Envy 6-sleekbook series is powered by AMD’s new Trinity mobile processor – A6 4455M clocking at 2.1GHz. In this part of the world, the second-generation Intel Core i3 processors power the same ultrabook series.
Conclusion: HP has positioned its AMD-powered Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us 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 Sleekbook 6-1010us review: A low-cost ultrabook alternative
13 July 2012
Summary: Ultimately, its price separates HP's Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us from the competition. At $600 (compared to an average price of about $1,100 for an Ivy-Bridge-based ultrabook), it is a bargain for those who don't need the absolute smallest and fastest system.
Pros: Slim design, 15.6-inch screen, inexpensive, good battery life
Cons: Bigger and heavier than an ultrabook, can't change battery, VGA requires adapter
Conclusion: Still, considering its $599 price, the HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us sports the stunning good looks of a much pricier machine, as well as a larger screen than pricier ultrabooks have (which means less squinting if your eyes aren't what they used to be).
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 Sleekbook Review; AMD’s Mobile Trinity APU Arrives
20 November 2012
Conclusion: In today’s mobile computing world, due to a myriad of reasons, consumers have begun demanding more while also making due with less. Build quality, ease of use and design appeal are gradually replacing adaptability and raw performance.
Summary: HP’s attempt to tackle the Ultrabook for half the price is admirable, but its budget cuts are evident in several key areas: the screen mixes mediocre quality with a low resolution, good design and build quality is matched with iffy ergonomics, and the AMD APU combines poor application performance...
Summary: What do you call an Ultrabook that isn't an Ultrabook? According to HP, it's now a Sleekbook. At least that's the name they've given to this skinny, affordable 15.6in laptop - which thanks to its use of a 2.6GHz AMD processor cannot use the Ultrabook name (that's reserved for Intel, which gave birth...
Pros: Multi-tasking oomph, Six-hour battery life, Value for money
Cons: Compromised screen resolution, Skinny but still weighty, Underwhelming speakers
Excerpt: We were impressed by AMD's latest "Trinity" mobile processors when we got our hands on a prototype laptop earlier this year, but we’ve had to wait a while for the first Trinity-equipped production model. It's finally here in the shape of the Ultrabook-bothering HP Envy 6.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1031er: недорогая тонкая «пятнашка» на платформе AMD
4 November 2012
Summary: Породистый внешний вид, любимый покупателями формат 15 дюймов, неплохие материалы и заявленные характеристики. Хотя HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1031er и не может называться ультрабуком, внешне от неотличим от более дорогих представителей модельного ряда Envy.
