HP Pavilion G6-2009TX Review


HP's Pavilion line of notebooks has always been a good value option for first time notebook buyers. Like Dell's Inspiron series, this line of notebooks from HP delivers basic computing along with a good mix of multimedia features for a very affordable...

At Rs 40,500, the HP Pavilion G6-2009TX offers very good value for money, as it covers all aspects of computing, and does a good job all round. It can handle heavy editing software such as Photoshop, and can easily double up as a decent entry-level...

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.

Good application performance; Low noise; Low temperatures

Display's contrast; Keyboard makes a cheap impression (clatters, yields); No number pad

Currently, there is a lot of competition in this price range with this configuration. You don't even have to search for long because of the Intel TestIT!2011 campaign. Thus, the Packard Bell EasyNote TS11 notebook the Asus X53E notebook and the Toshiba...

HP Pavilion g6


Cheap and cheerful” is a phrase that sums up the majority of the laptop market. While sexy laptops like HP's own Envy are coveted by geeks, the majority of consumers part ways with no more than $600. Reliable, inexpensive, but surprisingly powerful...

Excellent build quality ; Solid, comfortable keyboard ; Responsive multi-touch touchpad ; Very little bloatware ; Bargain price

Average display ; Disappointing speaker volume ; Short battery endurance ; Second-gen Intel Core processors aren’t available

HP’s Pavilion g6 is a solid laptop that, on the basis of build quality, can compete with some costing twice as much.

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.
