HP has been on a laptop spree lately, and has so far announced the HP 3105m, EliteBook 2560p and 2760m, Pavilion dm4x, and HP 630, all within the past month. Now, the list can be updated to include a new budget Pavilion laptop, the g6s.
The g6s is the updated model to the previous g6t generation, which sported first generation Intel Core CPUs. Every configuration of the new model will come standard with 15.6-inch screens and Sandy Bridge i3, i5, or i7 processors, starting from a 2.1GHz Core i3-2310M up to a 2.7GHz Core i7-2620M.The video card can also be upgraded from an Intel HD 3000 to a dedicated Radeon 6470m GPU. Other specs, such as the RAM and HDD, can be upgraded as well, although no SSD options appear to be available.
Overall, the g6s notebook will come in at around 5.5 lbs (2.49kg) and last up to 4.25 hours on a 6-cell battery.
The Pavilion g6s begins at $575 on the official HP website, although the HP recommended configuration starts at a heftier $983. Regardless of the customization, all models are now shipping and will come standard with a 1-year warranty.
