HP Envy Ultrabook 6t-1000 Review

The expression "better late than never" fits like a glove when talking about the recent trend towards 15.6-inch Ultrabooks. We fully appreciate that Intel and its hardware partners made a concerted effort to slim down the notebook without sacrificing performance (unlike the once popular netbook form factor), but limiting the segment to 14-inch displays (and smaller) felt like a step back in some ways.

Enter Hewlett-Packard's Envy Ultrabook 6t-1000 Series. The Envy Ultrabook signals a return to the 15.6-inch form factor for those who want a larger size display, but otherwise find themselves, well, envious of slimmer laptops. Now you can have your cake and eat it, too, or at least that's the idea...

Why, why, why the baby resolutions HP?!

1336x768 is just sad for a 15 inch display!

I also don't understand why if they're going to use an HDD, why not at least have it running at 7200rpm?

I've had the faster RPM's in an HD can have a little bit of an impact on battery life but it's not worth the trade off to have things starting up and moving slower. Moving slower for longer isn't more productive than moving faster for less time.

It's good to see bloatware being tuned down a little bit but I know myself and everyone else just wishes it were gone entirely already.

Each person's idea is different, can't say good or bad.

Hi I was wondering where you think I could find this 6t-1000 model and not 6t-1100 model? I cannot find this one on sale anywhere.

It seems this would be way easier than to buy a 6t-1100 and downgrading to Windows 7 (which I prefer)

This Ultrabook would be a damned beast wouldn't for a fact that it has a mediocre 768p screen. WTH were you thinking HP? Having a cheap screen in an Ultrabook is inexcusable imo. At least bump it 1600x900 if you don't want the 1080p screen? Sheesh!
