HPs 15" is a competitively priced business machine, but slightly lacking in features. The HP Compaq 6730s is aimed at the business market. However, unlike some similar laptops, it is competitively priced and boasts some sensible features that make it a good proposition.  The Compaq 6730s is the most competitively priced business laptop, and its simple design is matched by good performance, making it recommend it for corporate users on a budget.

The HP 6730s is coated in a plain matte black finish with a black gloss trim around the screen and keyboard. With this being a business notebook, we weren't expecting the usual shiny and love it or hate it designs that plague consumer notebooks. A cheap notebook for the business that’s after current technology and isn’t too fussed over the simple black design.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410: Entry level dedicated GPU from AMD which supports only PCI-E 1.1 (3430 and upwards support PCI-E 2.0). Technically a slower clocked HD 3430/3450.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5670: Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


74%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
