Model:

With laptops, it is normal that will be some compromises when it comes to the features because of available space. The HP Pavilion 15-J6Z61EA tries to pack in a complete package into a laptop body.

Equipped with a 4th generation i7 Intel processor, 8 GB of RAM and an NVIDIA Geforce 840M GPU with 2 GB dedicated memory. However, it comes with only a normal 1 TB 5400 rpm hard disk drive, which reduces its potential.

The dedicated graphics card is the star here - a mid-range DirectX 11-compatible card - you can play most recently released modern games at full or medium details at the native resolution. However, demanding games like Crysis 3 requires lower details and lower resolution settings. It comes with a 15.6-inch HD BrightView WLED-backlit display with a 1366 x 768 resolution. It is not the best screen but it is good enough that it does not pull down your experience but the viewing angles are not the best.

There will be some downsides to have all of these features in a laptop, including a pretty hefty weight of 2.4 kg (5.3lbs). The battery life is also subpar, with claims of up to 4 hours of mixed use. For those looking for a laptop with a good performance all around, the HP Pavilion 15-J6Z61EA deserves a good look.

NVIDIA GeForce 840M:

Mid-range graphics card from the GeForce 800M series based on the Maxwell architecture.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4510U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.35 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
