Low temperature and fan noise; Low power consumption; Good battery life; Small power adapter; Low price

Fluctuating CrossFire performance; Somewhat undefined keyboard; Intense micro-stuttering; Mediocre image quality; No USB 3.0

Attractively priced 15 inch devices, such as the Acer Aspire 5560G-8358G50Mnkk, the Dell Vostro 3555 or the Packard Bell EasyNote TS13HR-197GE.

HP Pavilion g6

 

The HP Pavilion g6 is exactly what you'd expect for its starting price of $450: bland. While there's absolutely nothing exciting about this machine, it does what it's supposed to do, and does it well: The chassis is simple yet sturdy, the keyboard and...

Solid performance for the price ; Nice, minimalist casing

HP Pavilion g6-1a69us

 

The HP g6-1a69us looks good, and thanks to strong performance and battery life, it's rubbing elbows with the best budget laptops available.

Slick two-toned style. Full-sized keyboard. SRS Premium Sound. Large 500GB hard drive. Strong performance. 5 hours of battery life.

Lacks the graphics and gaming capabilities of budget systems with Intel 2nd generation processors.
