80% HP Envy 6 Ultrabook review
Source: Computer Active English
Unusually for an ultrabook the Envy uses a 500GB hard disk for storing your programs and files. It's been paired with a small 32GB solid state drive (SSD) for speeding up tasks such as starting up and waking from sleep. The large hard disk means there's plenty of storage space, but it also means the Envy doesn't feel quite as snappy as SSD-only ultrabooks. Plus the hard disk won't be as damage-resistant as a SSD.

60% HP Envy 6
Source: Digital Versus English
After the Envy 4, HP has now released its big brother, the Envy 6, a 15.6-inch ultrabook that sells for as low as £440. Is it worth the upgrade from the Envy 4? The Envy 6's biggest selling point is its thin size (19.8 mm), which officially makes it an ultrabook—and that's about it, because on the 15.6" market you can find all sorts of laptops with better specs at a lower price.

HP reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 7670M: Renamed Radeon HD 6650M and therefore still produced in 40nm.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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


Intel Core i3:

2367M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.4 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


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


2 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

2.2 kg:

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


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
