HP Envy 6t-1000
Reviews for the HP Envy 6t-1000
Source: Student Buying Guide
The design is appealing, the midnight black color is professional while the red trim gives it a sporty look. The audio quality is above average for both 15” laptops and Ultrabooks and the number of ports you get is also great. Performance varies depending on which processor and graphics card you select, but even the base level Core i5 will be enough to zip through standard usage patterns such as browsing the web with multiple tabs, watching HD video streamed from the web, office applications or some Photoshop work. With the Intel HD 4000 or AMD 7670M graphics you could even do a little gaming running the latest games. The big negatives for the Envy 6t are the screen that really should be higher resolution than 1366 x 768 given its size, plus the keyboard is simply lackluster. The battery is non-replaceable and you can’t make any after purchase upgrades, which is a con, but one you get with any Ultrabook.

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