Reviews for the HP Envy dv6z-7200
Source: Student Buying Guide Archive.org version
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.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
