60% HP Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000 review
Source: PC Advisor English
The HP Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000 is a nice-looking entry-level laptop, and it costs only $600. The laptop's performance and processing speed may not be up to par, but HP's premium styling and components definitely make this laptop look lust-worthy. If you're not terribly concerned with having the fastest notebook on the market, the Sleekbook is worth a look.

HP has positioned its AMD-powered HP Envy Sleekbook 6z-1000 as a lower-priced alternative to Intel-certified ultrabooks. Unfortunately, the axiom that "you get what you pay for" applies here. It's underpowered, has a mediocre screen, and may feel slow even when brand new.

70% HP Envy 6 Sleekbook review
Source: Pocket Lint English
If you’re in the market for a 15-inch budget laptop then the HP Envy 6 has got enough grunt behind it to deal with most tasks. It’s not meant to be a high-end model, and that shows. But when money is a major deciding factor the Envy 6 succeeds in filling that near-£600 gap in the market. And by doing so it’s already done its job: there’s enough on offer for the cash, and buyers will know they’re not buying a powerhouse.

50% HP ENVY Sleekbook 6z Review: Is Being Thin Enough?
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The HP ENVY Sleekbook 6z is ultimately hard to recommend for a few reasons. The first of which is the abysmal keyboard: it has a poor, cheap feel and is not encouraging to use. Adding to the productivity problem is the low 1366x768 screen resolution; it suffices for basic tasks, but power users will be wishing for more space.

The HP Envy Sleekbook 6z is another Ultrabook laptop that looks to take a bit out of the crowded market. It tries to do this with a rock-bottom price tag of $600 and Beats Audio in an attempt to lure back to school shoppers away from other brands. Performance does lack, however, which is disappointing to say the least.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6z review: an inexpensive thin-and-light with AMD innards
Source: Engadget English
It's pretty clear that HP's new Sleekbook line is targeted toward those who fancy a responsive, high-performing thin-and-light but don't want to shell out a grand or more for an Ultrabook. We appreciate the company's effort to temper features with price, and while the 6z is capable enough to handle your everyday computing needs, the underpowered AMD APU isn't a great performer -- and you can do better without spending much more, as even the Envy Ultrabook 6t starts at just $800.

Whether you're a student looking for a thin laptop with a big screen or you just want a cheap Ultrabook alternative, the $599 HP Envy Sleekbook 6z is definitely worth considering. Aside from a striking design, this sleek laptop features above-average audio and long battery life.
