HPs 15" is a competitively priced business machine, but slightly lacking in features. The HP Compaq 6730s is aimed at the business market. However, unlike some similar laptops, it is competitively priced and boasts some sensible features that make it a good proposition.  The Compaq 6730s is the most competitively priced business laptop, and its simple design is matched by good performance, making it recommend it for corporate users on a budget.

The HP 6730s is coated in a plain matte black finish with a black gloss trim around the screen and keyboard. With this being a business notebook, we weren't expecting the usual shiny and love it or hate it designs that plague consumer notebooks. A cheap notebook for the business that’s after current technology and isn’t too fussed over the simple black design.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410: Entry level dedicated GPU from AMD which supports only PCI-E 1.1 (3430 and upwards support PCI-E 2.0). Technically a slower clocked HD 3430/3450.

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.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5670: Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.40":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
