The HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1126sa is a laptop of contradictions. It looks like a expensive Ultrabook, but costs the same as a budget PC. The performance promises so much, but doesn't quite deliver where it needs to. At the same time, it's a great media...

In today’s mobile computing world, due to a myriad of reasons, consumers have begun demanding more while also making due with less. Build quality, ease of use and design appeal are gradually replacing adaptability and raw performance. Some may argue...

The HP Envy 6-1006ea Sleekbook scores the same as its Ultrabook counterpart. It's £100 cheaper but this comes with a sacrifice in raw performance. This laptop will suffice for basic tasks like web browsing but not much more....

Not without issues, but the cheaper price and Radeon-powered gaming performance make this a reasonable Ultrabook alternativeRating: 4Average: 4 (1 vote) Intel’s thrown plenty of money at its Ultrabook brand and, while they’ve gained plenty of column...

HP’s attempt to tackle the Ultrabook for half the price is admirable, but its budget cuts are evident in several key areas: the screen mixes mediocre quality with a low resolution, good design and build quality is matched with iffy ergonomics, and the...

Our verdict AMD Trinity processors power this Ultrabook alternative, making it cheaper and more battery-filled. The Envy 6 has a quality metal lid and rubberised base, 15.6 in screen, and its 6GB RAM means faster boot times on its 500GB hard drive than...

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...

The HP Envy 6 may look good, but it can't quite surpass its functional position; there's little icing on this cake. But then there’s nothing wrong with that: for the £500-600 that the Envy 6 costs it delivers a reasonable spread, including USB 3.0, a...

The HP Envy Sleekbook 6 is indeed a sleek looking device with some fairly decent performance to offer. While it may not be competing with the latest Ultrabooks, it’s still a fairly decent and affordable laptop to pick up if you’re looking for a...

While ultrabooks -- those light, stylish computers that use Intel's Ivy Bridge processors -- are getting most of the attention these days, HP has stepped in with a less expensive alternative. The HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us offers an AMD processor and...

International Review By 3dnews.ru on

Из-за использованной платформы HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1031er получился излишне медленным по меркам 15-дюймовых моделей. С другой стороны, чип AMD позволил обеспечить конкурентоспособную цену и хорошее время автономной работы. Учитывая, что «основа» для...

International Review By IDG.no on 50

Med en prislapp på under 5000 kroner er dette en rimelig pc. Lav pris betyr kompromisser opp i mot mange av de andre pc-ene i segmentet. Vi har ikke testet så mange av pc-ene i dette segmentet. Egentlig er det ingen andre pc-er som vi føler blir...

This will be available in stores for just under Rs 40000, and at that price, you are getting a big screen yet very slim notebook. The specs are fairly basic, but what you get is brilliant battery life and a premium build and finish taken straight from...

International Review By PC for Alla Extreme on

Byggkvaliteten är överlag bra på datorn, men vi märker tydligt hur tangentbordet sviktar inåt när vi använder det. Tangentbordet i övrigt känns bra att skriva på, men värt att notera har HP ändrat om med funktionsknapparna. För att sänka och höja skärmens ljusstyrka...

International Review By NordicHardware on

Batteritiden är bra och ligger på en liknande nivå som Asus UX32A med videouppspelning på runt fyra timmar och fem timmar i NordicHardwares webbläsartest. Ljudnivån ligger dock konstant på 34 decibel vid enkla uppgifter som surfning, datorn låter med andra ord konstant. Trots detta blir datorn även ganska varm och speciellt på...
