Review HP Pavilion g6-2200sg Notebook


For the frugal gamer. A Pentium processor and a Radeon HD7670 GPU gives you a cheap laptop. Our review reveals whether this notebook is a good buy or not for the cost-conscious gamer.

Contrast-rich display, Decent gaming performance, Decent keyboard, Quiet in low load scenarios, Cheap, the contrast-rich display, the low price, the good performance

merely 12 month warranty, merely Fast-Ethernet, GPU-switch frequently needs manual configuration, moderate battery runtimes, a Gigabit Ethernet port

Review HP Pavilion g6-1352eg Notebook


Good and cheap? The Pavilion g6-1352eg is particularly striking d

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

Generally bland design ; Weak battery life

Nothing about this computer stands out, but maybe you'll like that.

HP Pavilion g6-1a69us


The full-sized keyboard has a traditional layout with adjoining keys, but thanks to a raised square profile on each key, the typing experience was more like that of a chiclet keyboard. The layout is fairly standard, though HP has squeezed the four...

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

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