I recieved a HP Pavilion G6 laptop as a present from my parents for graduating university. I was told that I was allowed to choose any laptop that I wanted up to the value of £500. Whilst I am quite good at using technology, the tech speak gets confusing and sometimes it just goes over your head. We searched the internet for reviews and ideas for what to get.
I must admit that the first thing that caught my eye about this laptop was the colour. I love the colour purple, and the shade is very attractive and rich. Although the colour does not mean that it is a better laptop, it is a nice feature. PC World were also offering this model in black, so there is choice just incase purple is not your cup of tea.
I tested the show version of this laptop in store, and it was easy to use and did not require much work to figure out where things were or what they do. I have had this laptop for almost a year and it has always been very reliable and easy to use. Features that come pre-loaded include webcam, Microsoft Office Starter and plenty of games. It also came with 90 days of Norton Anti-virus protection.
We paid less than £500 for this laptop a year ago, so as well as feeling as though it was good value for money at the time, as prices for it would have fallen, it would be even better value now. The installation process was very fast, simple and easy to do. My mum sat with me to watch how to set it up and even she felt confident with following the instructions.
The only problems that I have had with this laptop is that it had a faulty fan in it, and it had to be returned under warrenty to have it fixed. Replacing the fan though does seem to have solved the problem. The battery does not last as long as it states in the stores, but it does last long enough for everything that I need it for.
Overall, I am very satisfied with this laptop. It is great for people who want to surf the internet or do office/university work on it and the colour is a nice touch. It is fast, reliable and good value for money.
