HP Envy 6t-1000 Ultrabook Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
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.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
