Fancy a 'free' business notebook with that mobile broadband plan, Sir?

HP Compaq 6730s review

 

HPs 15" is a competitively priced business machine, but slightly lacking in features

Good screen ; Fairly decent performance ; Good usability

Poor graphics performance

Although this is not a multimedia laptop it is still very usable and offers decent performance for the cash

HP 6830s review

 

A highly affordable Blu-ray laptop, but too flawed to be an essential purchase

Blu-ray drive ; Attractive price ; Good keyboard ; Impressive battery life

Poor image quality ; Low power performance

A good value HD laptop, with a spec that will suit most users

Hewlett Packard - 6730b on Orange Business Everywhere

 

Mobile broadband is really starting to take off. You have two options here: you can either opt for a laptop with SIM support built in or buy a laptop and add a ‘dongle' from your favourite ...

This is a solid enough notebook, and getting online with the Orange SIM was easy. We aren't sure we like the idea of being tethered to one provider or one notebook for two years, though.

HP Compaq 6730b

 

David Fearon tests HP's latest business laptop offering

There's no mistaking this is a laptop designed for business use. Sensible grey-black styling with just a hint of corporate chic; a screen with a matte anti-glare finish rather than a glossy video-orientated affair; and a fingerprint reader to...

HP Compaq 6730b

 

A longer-lasting laptop.

Performs considering its price, very long battery life, screen is not highly reflective, wide variety of expansion ports

Heavy, small hard drive

The HP Compaq 6730b is a good value laptop with an excellent battery life and relatively wide selection of expansion ports. Although it sports a small hard drive and is quite heavy for a 15.4in notebook, the positives outweigh the negatives.

HP Compaq 6730s (FV305PA)

 

Excitement is overrated

Business-friendly design, dedicated graphics chip, spacious display and keyboard

Business-friendly design, underperformed in WorldBench 6, a little on the chunky side

The Compaq 6730s (FV305PA) is the Dunlop of business notebooks. Like the famous shoe, it's plain, workmanlike and reliable, yet also incredibly dull. If you're on the lookout for a basic business laptop with some gaming capabilities, it will get the...

Review HP Compaq 6730b Notebook

 

Compaq notebooks designed for business use (indicated by 'b') are ...

Solid Case ; User-friendly keyboard ; Matte WSXGA+ screen ; Quiet operation ; Pretty good battery runtime ; Relatively light

The software part of the laptop is at least not perfect ; Quality of materials could be better ; Chassis gets hot

To summarize, the HP 6730b has a number of desireable advantages. Unfortunately HP disregarded the software side. So, this laptop might sometimes tax the user's patience if something fails, does not run as expected or contrary to the expectations
