With the HP Academy pricing of $527.99 to start out you get an insanely good price for such a high quality laptop that has so much power. This notebook is solidly built with an aluminum chassis and rigid feel all over. The Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen is a dream, it has excellent viewing angles, color reproduction and anti-glare finish. It’s not all rainbows and butterflies though, disappointments included the cheap feeling mouse buttons, annoying glossy screen bezel and there was a lot of bloatware that needed to be removed within Windows 8. No laptop is perfect, and these are small complaints for an otherwise excellent machine. If you’re looking for a powerful laptop with a bit of mobility and don’t want to break the bank, look no further than the HP ENVY dv6z-7200.

HP's Envy laptops may lack their distinctive styles that set them apart from the companies other consumer laptops but it still offers a solid experience for those looking at an all around laptop. It features some strong performance that lets it do well in pretty much but it still isn't quite as suited for dedicated gaming as other laptops.

90% HP Envy dv6-7206tx Review
Source: Think Digit English
HP's higher-end laptops have always been fairly competent, in terms of what they offer. The updated dv6 that we have tested here is an alternative option to the Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 and the Sony Vaio SVS151115FNB, all of which are in the same price bracket, around Rs. 65,000. The IdeaPad Z580 still remains the best performer, but the Envy dv6-7206tx matches it fairly close throughout. It lacks a Blu-ray drive that the Z580 offers, but has a better keyboard, brighter display and more personality.

In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M: A mid-range GPU and the fastest GeForce GT as part of the 600M seriesNon demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon HD 7660G: Processor graphics card that is built into the Trinity A10 series APUs from AMD. Based on the VLIW4 architecture of the Radeon HD 6900 desktop series.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  

3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.AMD A-Series:
