The 6730s is in a stylish black colour, the touchpad is easy to use and not too sensitive. The screen is clear to look at and the lid doesn't have a catch on the front.
It's not too heavy about what you would expect from a laptop this size however it isn't as heavy as some of the other 15.4" HPs.
The power supply can get quite hot when charging but other than that it's about the only fault I can come up with for this laptop. I've recommended this laptop to friends and would recommend it to you.
The battery life is good and can last a good couple of hours without needing charging.
It has the usual Vista querks but you can't blame that on the laptop!
I've actually downgraded mine to Windows XP which was easier due to the support on the HP website, drivers are readily available for download.
