HP Compaq 6735s review

 

ATI graphics give this laptop a boost, but it comes with extremely limited features

Good graphics performance ; Solid chassis

Lacking in features

A bit light on features for the average user but this would suit someone looking to get gaming on-the-go for a budget

HP Compaq 6735b review

 

The HP Compaq 6735b's nice features are let down by poor performance

Good features ; Decent 3D performance ; Good connectivity

Overall performance ; Average screen

Good features and 3D power are let down by poor performance unfortunately

HP Compaq 6735b Review

 

Yes, you can find faster, sexier machines than the HP Compaq 6735b. But for this price, you'd be hard-pressed to find one with more business-friendly extras and utilities. With its handy QuickLook 2 and file-deletion utilities, the 6735b may be a step...

Low price, Full drive encryption, Extra security utilities, Active hard drive protection

Below-average performance, Bland design, Webcam costs extra

Review HP Compaq 6735s Notebook

 

A good, cheap alternative, or maybe just cheap? With their curren

Sturdy case; Various options for extension of the guarantee; Simple design; Bluetooth; 8 cell battery with 63Wh; Bright, matt display; 1 RAM slot free; Good price-performance ratio; Long battery run time with low CPU usage

Missing display latch/lock mechanism; Poor contrast display; Positions of the USB ports; Under heavy CPU usage, high noise emissions; Low battery run time under heavy CPU usage; Poorly dimensioned power adapter

The price, however, is despite the flaws tempting.

Review HP Compaq 6735b

 

The HP 6735b is a variation of the HP 6730b based on the cheaper ...

Very good matte WSXGA+ screen ; Integrated graphics processor with a reasonable performance ; Keyboard ; Quite solid chassis ; Relatively light

Loud in operation ; Chassis warms up considerably

In terms of case, connectivity, and input devices the HP 6735b and the HP 6730b are nearly identical. So, the question arises, if it is really worse to spend more on a model with Intel hardware, which has a better calculation power, but a weaker GPU

HP Compaq 6735S GW694AV

 

For a student, this was a real bargain. Light, slim and easy to carry around if you need to. The best price i'd seen for laptops suitable for students going to college.

Although the laptop had 2gb of ram, it was slower than i thought it would be. Howevber, I did pick this laptop because the ram was expandable up to 4gb and will at some point increase the ram.

HP Compaq 6735S GW694AV

 

It's a brilliant laptop for the price, it was practically new when I bought it as an A2 and the only scratches that are on it now are the ones I've made myself!

Battery life is a bit dissapointing and my laptop charger is no longer powerful enough for my laptop, but it will still charge.
