75% HP Envy 6-1001tx 15.6in Ultrabook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
HP's Envy 6-1001tx is an Ultrabook that's large, but it just squeezes into Intel's requirements for thickness. It's a good model to consider if you want a thin and reasonably light notebook for gaming. You get a good configuration with lots of RAM, storage and graphics power, but it doesn't have an Ivy Bridge CPU. It's a notebook that's well built and it feels good to use. It just needs a better screen and Wi-Fi adapter.

82% Review HP Envy 6-1000sg Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
More than just an Ultrabook? Most Ultrabook buyers have to sacrifice performance in favor of enhanced mobility. HP's Envy 6 bucks the trend, and aims to woo gamers with a dedicated graphics card, all while delivering good value for money. Unfortunately, the slim 15-inch model isn't much use outdoors.

70% HP Envy 6 Ultrabook review
Source: CNet English
Although the screen on the HP Envy 6 is rather disappointing, it makes significant power improvements over its smaller Envy 4 brother. With the latest Intel Ivy Bridge chips on board, it's much better equipped for handling more intense tasks. As it only costs £50 extra over the Envy 4, it's definitely worth forking out for the additional power.

70% HP ENVY 6t-1000 review – the 15.6 inch ultrabook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
In the end, it’s up to you to decide if the HP Envy 6t is worth the cash and should or should not become your next notebook. Also, you must understand that regular sized laptops will offer better performances than this one, while going for 100-200 bucks less. So you’ll have to decide if sacrificing those for the sleek and light body and the slightly better battery life is for sure what you want right now.

The Envy has little to offer beyond its stylish looks. It’s not terribly fast, won’t play games particularly well, and it has a poor screen. But if you simply want a lightweight 15.6in laptop with strong battery life, the HP should appeal. We award three stars.

Beyond its streamlined looks the HP Envy Ultrabook 6-1010ea doesn't have a great deal to offer. It's no powerhouse, won't play games particularly well and there's no optical drive. But if your needs are modest and you need a more lightweight 15in laptop for web browsing and other undemanding tasks, the HP Envy should deliver, helped by good battery life.

HP Envy Ultrabook 6t-1000
Source: Hot Hardware English
Ultrabooks in the 15.6-inch category are few and far between, so we're glad to see HP go down that road, even if most others are reluctant to do so. Unfortunately, HP didn't go the distance, stopping well short of taking advantage of that extra screen real estate. Users would be better served with a Full HD 1080p resolution (1920x1080) or even 1600x900, but 1366x768? That's a missed opportunity.

The HP Envy 6 might just about squeeze into the definition, but we don't recommend it for those looking for an Ultrabook. If you're on a budget and want something this thin, it will do the job, but do yourself a favour and use a mouse.

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.

HP reviews


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.

AMD Radeon HD 7500G: Processor graphics card that is built into the Trinity ULV-A6 series APUs from AMD. Based on the VLIW4 architecture of the Radeon HD 6900 desktop series.

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).

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


Intel Core i5:

2467M: Power saving ULV processor clocked at 1.6-2.3 GHz due to Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1150 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.

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.

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.

2.3 kg:


68.7%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
