HP Pavilion g6-1a69us is a low-end laptop from HP that offers a slick two-toned styled full-sized keyboard, 5 hours of battery life, a large 500GB hard drive, and strong performance. The unbranded G Series laptops of Hewlett Packard can be excellent choices for bargain hunters, but the latest version features a new design upgrade and keeps the price down. The last year’s HP G62 was available for the price of $500 and featured the Intel Pentium T4500 processor, but the all-new model is equipped with one of the recent processors called Intel Core i3 for fast and superior performance. The Pavilion is available for the price of $549 and offers better battery life.
The HP Pavilion g6-1a69us is equipped with a standard list of extensive features such as 2.54GHz Intel Core i3-380M processor, 4GB DDR3 667MHz RAM, 5400 rpm 500GB hard disk drive, Mobile Intel HM55 chipset, Intel GMA graphics card and Windows 7 Home Premium operating system. Its body mixes with dark gray and light gray plastic and has a shiny lid, which still manages to be very fingerprint-resistant. The keyboard is slightly different as compared to other high-end Pavilion models with down and up arrow keys shrunk down and don’t come with a row of dedicated media control keys.
The wider flat-topped keys of HP Pavilion g6-1a69us keyboard clack loudly if you wiggle and type. It features a 15.6-inch LED-backlit screen that boasts 1366 x 768-pixel resolution. Some of the connectivity options on Pavilion include VGA, HDMI; Stereo speakers, microphone/headphone jacks; three USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader; built-in Ethernet, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and LightScribe DVD burner. The DVD burner is equipped with a feature called LightScribe technology, which allows you to record text and images into the top surface of particularly made optical media.
The HP Pavilion g6-1a69us’s full-size keyboard features a traditional layout with adjoining buttons, while the touchpad supports multitouch gestures, allowing you to scroll and zoom with a flick of fingers. It is also equipped with an integrated card reader and built-in web camera, which supports MMC and SD card formats. Overall, the Pavilion is certainly a leader in the current crop of budget laptops, from its slick design to its strong performance.
