Review HP Compaq 6735s Notebook


A good, cheap alternative, or maybe just cheap? With their curren

Sturdy case; Various options for extension of the guarantee; Simple design; Bluetooth; 8 cell battery with 63Wh; Bright, matt display; 1 RAM slot free; Good price-performance ratio; Long battery run time with low CPU usage

Missing display latch/lock mechanism; Poor contrast display; Positions of the USB ports; Under heavy CPU usage, high noise emissions; Low battery run time under heavy CPU usage; Poorly dimensioned power adapter

The price, however, is despite the flaws tempting.

Review HP Compaq 6735b


The HP 6735b is a variation of the HP 6730b based on the cheaper ...

Very good matte WSXGA+ screen ; Integrated graphics processor with a reasonable performance ; Keyboard ; Quite solid chassis ; Relatively light

Loud in operation ; Chassis warms up considerably

In terms of case, connectivity, and input devices the HP 6735b and the HP 6730b are nearly identical. So, the question arises, if it is really worse to spend more on a model with Intel hardware, which has a better calculation power, but a weaker GPU

HP Compaq 6735b


It doesn‘t have the looks or performance of the company's current golden-haired EliteBook, but business buyers get much of the same security and durability for about half the price.

Yes, you can find faster, sexier machines than the HP Compaq 6735b. But for this price, you’d be hard-pressed to find one with more business-friendly extras and utilities. With its handy QuickLook 2 and file-deletion utilities, the 6735b may be a step...

I have this model laptop except for higher specs. It's rather durable and clean looking. Battery life is around 4 hours. (may be more with the lower specs) Power settings are a bit funky, but that might just be my unit

HP Compaq 6735s review


ATI graphics give this laptop a boost, but it comes with extremely limited features

Good grahics erformance ; Solid chassis

Lacking in features

HP Compaq 6735s review


Well-made and with a no-nonsense design, the HP Compaq 6735s will no doubt appeal to those seeking a low-cost, dependable laptop, but there's little to get excited about and the specification is rather lacking, given the price

Sturdy design ; Good keyboard

Poor port placement ; Dreadful trackpad buttons

Conclusion The HP Compaq 6735s is a solid, if unexciting, laptop. But the specification is rather middling for the money, and better value can be found elsewhere
