Review HP Envy 6-1000sg Ultrabook

 

More than just an Ultrabook? Most Ultrabook buyers have to sacrif

high applications performance; gaming capability; SSD cache; decent speakers; good workmanship; long battery life

glossy and dim display; limited choice of connectors; GPU throttling on battery; slow and low range wifi

Even though it isn't an Ultrabook, the Acer Aspire V5-571G has much in common with the Envy 6. Another alternative with an even faster graphics card is the Aspire TimelineU M5-581TG. Most other Ultrabooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 either cannot keep...

HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us

 

If you're one of the people who disagrees that it's what's inside that counts, then the metal-bodied HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us ($699.99 list) should be on your radar. The Envy has a stylish metal body and looks terrific when you take it out of your...

Less expensive than ultrabooks. Good port selection. Metal construction

Sluggish performance. Loaded with bloatware. Low-resolution display. Screen door effect on display. Fingerprint magnet

HP has positioned its AMD-powered Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us as a lower-priced alternative to Intel-certified ultrabooks. Unfortunately, the axiom that "you get what you pay for" applies here. It's underpowered, has a mediocre screen, and may feel slow...

HP ENVY Sleekbook 6z Review: Is Being Thin Enough?

 

Impressive battery life and a nice design make the Sleekbook 6z quite attractive, but the weak keyboard and poor upgrade options limit the value.

Great battery life ; Good touchpad ; Nice-looking design

Awful keyboard ; Poor screen with no upgrade option at this time ; No user upgradeability

The HP ENVY Sleekbook 6z is ultimately hard to recommend for a few reasons. The first of which is the abysmal keyboard: it has a poor, cheap feel and is not encouraging to use. Adding to the productivity problem is the low 1366×768 screen resolution;...

Solid, attractive design ; Beats Audio in a lower-end machine ; Comfortable keyboard ; Decent battery life

Finicky touchpad ; Below-average performance

The Sleekbook 6z looks identical to HP's Ultrabook offerings, but its performance trails even lower-end ultraportables we've tested recently.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6

 

When is an ultrabook not an ultrabook? This new addition to the HP Envy line asks that very question, with two nearly identical models. One thin 15-inch HP Envy has an Intel Ivy Bridge CPU and is called an ultrabook, while this specific model, the...

The HP Envy Sleekbook 6 has a great design for a great price, and includes Beats Audio and decent graphics.

You're trading down to AMD's A-series processors, which are not as fast or power efficient as comparable Intel parts. Unlike actual ultrabooks, this doesn't have a solid-state hard drive. Some of the construction still feels a bit budget.

The ultrabook-like HP Envy Sleekbook 6 is the sharpest-looking $599 laptop you're likely to find, although you'll pay a performance premium.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6z

 

The HP Envy Sleekbook 6z delivers an Ultrabook-like design and long battery life for an affordable price, but you'll sacrifice some performance.

Click to EnlargeWhether you're a student looking for a thin laptop with a big screen or you just want a cheap Ultrabook alternative, the $599 HP Envy Sleekbook 6z is definitely worth considering. Aside from a striking design, this sleek laptop features...

HP ENVY 6t-1000 review – the 15.6 inch ultrabook

 

While ultrabooks have been around for a year or so, most of the available models are compact 13.3 inchers, with some 11.6 and 14 inch alternatives. However

THE GOOD slim and light for a 15.6 inch laptop, good looking and nicely put together, fast enough for daily use and multimedia, good speakers, decent battery life

THE BAD The screen, keyboard and trackpad are only average, not as fast as other laptops in this class, easily catches fingerprints

HP Envy Sleekbook 6 Review

 

A sleek laptop that needs a tad more tuning.

Stylish and standout design, decent graphics performance

Slow hard drive, finicky trackpad, screen is a let-down

The HP Envy Sleekbook 6 packs some fairly decent hardware under that sinister looking case, giving it an identity crisis where it’s not an Ultrabook nor an average laptop.

HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us review: A low-cost ultrabook alternative

 

The reasonably priced lightweight notebook comes with an AMD chip and Beats audio technology.

Slim design, 15.6-inch screen, inexpensive, good battery life

Bigger and heavier than an ultrabook, can't change battery, VGA requires adapter

Ultimately, its price separates HP's Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us from the competition. At $600 (compared to an average price of about $1,100 for an Ivy-Bridge-based ultrabook), it is a bargain for those who don't need the absolute smallest and fastest system.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us

 

But HP, being the world's largest PC maker, knows that not every consumer can afford to shell out bucks for a laptop in the ultrabook price range. (Ultrabook models start as low as $799, but many of the premium machines we've seen slice far deeper than...

Slim, attractive design for the price ; Better graphics than pricier Intel options ; USB 3.0 ports ; Impressive speakers

Lacks speedy boot times and app launches of ultrabooks with solid-state storage ; CPU performance lags well behind Intel-based machines

If you're looking for a low-cost laptop with a premium look and feel, the Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us delivers impressively at $599. It’s best for casual users and light gamers who don’t need to perform frequent CPU-centric tasks.
