Excerpt: HP’s Pavilion line of notebooks have been around a while and they’ve evolved in performance and also, shape and design. The existing line of Pavilion g6 uses Intel’s Sandy Bridge line of processors. These are the line of processors that were launched back in January 2011 and the g6 model we’re reviewing uses this same architecture. The Pavilion g6 model we’re looking at today is the model, 2008tx.
Excerpt: HP has impressed in the past when it comes to budget notebooks, and now the company has refreshed its Pavilion line with a Windows 8 software upgrade and a 2.7-GHz AMD dual-core A6 processor. Like the Intel-powered Pavilion g6t-2000, the HP Pavilion g6z-2200 comes equipped with Dolby audio and a roomy keyboard with a full numeric keypad. Sporting an aggressive price tag of $454, is the g6z the budget notebook to get?
Pros: Good performance for price, Multiple color options, Comfortable keyboard, Quality speakers, Optical drive included
Summary: The HP Pavilion G6 is a very good option for a price of under Rs. 40,000, out-performing some of its more expensive rivals. It ticks all the right boxes - decent specs, pretty powerful graphics and to top it off, good battery life. On a budget, this is one combination that impresses.
Pros: Very good system performance, for the most part, No shortage of graphics punch, Surprisingly good battery life, Feels better built than what you expect for this price
Cons: Core i3 processor will limit multitasking after a level
Summary: Priced at $489, the HP Pavilion g6t-2000 is a low-cost notebook with plenty of features and plenty of punch for everyday tasks. While the second-generation Core i3 CPU is older, this notebook provides solid performance and has booming Dolby Advanced Audio speakers. The g6t also runs cool and lets you choose from multiple color options.
Pros: Good performance for price, Multiple color options, Great Dolby Advanced Audio Speakers, Runs cool
Cons: Mediocre graphics, Display somewhat dim, Battery life below average
Excerpt: HP’s Pavilion line of notebooks has always been a good value option for first time notebook buyers. Like Dell’s Inspiron series, this line of notebooks from HP delivers basic computing along with a good mix of multimedia features for a very affordable price. Today, we review the Pavilion G6-2009TX, which is slotted in the budget range of less than Rs 40,000.
Conclusion: The HP g6t is a solid entry in the world of $400 budget laptops. The Intel Core i3 is a good choice of processors for those that just need a laptop for around the home or a small business with basic usage needs. Take care of the g6t and it can serve you well for 3 – 4 years or longer as the Core i3 processor is enough to future proof you.
Conclusion: The HP g6z is a solid entry in the world of $400 budget laptops. Many people own multiple computers simply because everyone in a household needs access to their own computer, I can see the HP g6z as being a popular “around the house” laptop that a family can share or the kids can use as their own.
Summary: If you are looking for a budget laptop for basic use and light gaming, then the HP G6 will address all your needs. It is a good looking, better-than-average 15-inch laptop sold at a very competitive and affordable price.
Pros: Onboard + dedicated graphics, Good performance at affordable price, Battery Life
