The HP Pavilion g6 is a solid choice for those in search of a budget notebook for basic use, including Internet surfing and Microsoft Office. Its highlights include good performance, almost five hours of battery life, a cool operating temperature, and decent build quality. The downsides are minor but notable; my number one complaint is the over-the-top use of glossy plastic, which turns the notebook into an eyesore and compromises durability. Furthermore, the keyboard could have had a better feel and the display panel could be sturdier. Lastly, the speakers are poor even by notebook standards.

HP’s Pavilion g6 is a solid laptop that, on the basis of build quality, can compete with some costing twice as much. The keyboard deserves particular praise, as it’s rare to find such a comfortable and robust set of keys on an inexpensive laptop. While the hardware isn’t the latest and greatest, it is sufficiently quick for anyone who doesn’t intend to play 3D games or run processor-intensive software.

In hip-hop culture, the G6 is the ultimate status symbol: specifically, the Gulfstream G6, a big, fast, and super-ritzy business jet. The HP Pavilion g6 comes with a budget price, as well as good performance, reasonable battery life, and excellent audio, making for a surprisingly good choice for budget buyers.

HP Pavilion g6 Review: Budget Notebook Without the Budget Feel
Source: Notebooks.com English
The HP Pavilion g6 is a good budget notebook. While there aren’t a ton of standout features and extras, it also doesn’t have any major issues. Budget notebooks need to cut corners somewhere to come in at an affordable price and HP chose the right places to trim when they made the g6. Students and average home users in need of an affordable notebook should look at the g6, especially as part of back to school and Black Friday promotions.

The HP Pavilion g6 is, above all things, totally average. It's definitely not a performance machine, or a sexy piece of art, but if you're just looking for a decent laptop for Web surfing, word processing, and lightweight photo editing, it's a pretty good deal. The only real drawback I see is battery life--HP says you'll get 5.5 hours, but we managed to get only 4 usable hours out of the g6's battery in our testing.

From its sleek design to its strong performance, the HP Pavilion g6-1a69us is certainly a leader in the current crop of budget laptops. If you're looking for a good general-use laptop, the g6-1a69us is worth considering, but don't discount the HP Pavilion g7-1033cl, which offers similar performance with a larger 17-inch display, or the Editors' Choice HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl, which takes top honors for its class-leading construction, second-gen Intel processor, and battery life.

Though it wasn't much to look at, we've always thought HP's line of non-Pavilion G-series laptops were decent for bargain hunters at the very low end of the price scale. We've always thought HP's unbranded G-series laptops were worth a look for bargain hunters. The latest version gets a design upgrade and keeps the price down, but is stuck with last year's CPU and graphics.

As with all HP computers it seems, this one comes with lots of pre-installed software, including trialware and bloatware. There are a few useful HP utilities and services, like HP CloudDrive that provides 2GB of free online data storage. However there is also a 60-day trial of Norton Internet Security 2011 and a trial of Microsoft Office 2010. Other software includes Cyberlink PowerDVD 9, HP Music Store, HP Games, Snapfish Picture and many toolbars and links for online services are also included.

The HP Pavilion g6x provides a solid computing experience for an aggressive $544 price. The Core i3 processor has plenty of muscle for multitasking, the keyboard is comfy, and the speakers deliver suprisingly good sound. We also like that the g6x is fairly portable for a 15-inch notebook, and that it's available in multiple colors. In this price range we give a slight edge to the Samsung RV511 because it has a sleeker design and an easier-to-use touchpad. But but if you're looking for a laptop that offers better audio in a more compact package, along with more configuration options, you can't go wrong with the Pavilion g6x.

HP's new Pavilion g6-1a69us budget laptop offers an average level of features and performance in a budget class laptop with a list price of $630. Thankfully, it can be found for under $600 that makes it one of the more affordable one the market. It doesn't really have any truly standout features beyond the inclusion of LightScribe support for the DVD burner and the availability of some models with a bit more color.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
