For anyone that is looking to get a thin and lightweight 15-inch laptop, it is going to be hard to find a better overall choice that the HP Envy Sleekbook 6 with its $600 price tag. The downside is that the lower price point also comes with a slower performing AMD platform. it will work for basic tasks but even the first generation Intel ultrabooks will often do better.

HP has positioned its AMD-powered Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us 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.

When is an ultrabook not an ultrabook? This new addition to the HP Envy line asks that very question, with two nearly identical models. The ultrabook-like HP Envy Sleekbook 6 is the sharpest-looking $599 laptop you're likely to find, although you'll pay a performance premium.

If you've been paying close attention to the laptop landscape since 2011, you already know about Intel's "ultrabook" push.

It’s best for casual users and light gamers who don’t need to perform frequent CPU-centric tasks.
