Overall: HP Pavilion G6 is a heavy duty laptop.
* Sturdy design.
* Dolby Advanced Audio combined with Altec Lansing is far better than any other laptop.
* Screen is bright and with vibrant colors.
* Windows 8 is extraordinary swift and it works very fast.
* Transfer speed to external harddrive is 35MBps constant. Thanks to internal toshiba harddisk.
* Ethernet adaptor is of Realtech and works well.
* RaLink is the provider of Wireless Lan(Wifi). It works very well. Reception of Ra-link adaptor is same as Atheros adaptor.
* Battery: Guranteed 4 Hours. I feel relaxed with 4 hours backup.
* Video: Intel HD 4000 is better than NVIDIA GT 520M and 610M. Video works with charm and 1080p videos are played with ease. Even 2k videos ( higher resolution than 1080p) works exceptionally well.
* Gaming: In presence of intel HD 4000, almost all games have to surrender !!
* Touchpad: Multitouch wilth gesture support.
* Boot speed: Maximum 15 seconds. Its lightening fast.
* Cooling is very efficient. Does not get heated.
* Noise: Too silent.
* Webcam: Its HD. Result are preety good.
* Ambient Sensor: Works very well. It senses the availability of light and works with screen brightness accordingly.
*Keyboard: Its solid and no chance of key loosening.
What is not Good:
* First time operation is quite complex. You need a microsoft account to log in to your laptop for the first time. A computer expert is needed for first time usage.
* No facility to turn off the screen.
After so many years, I have seen such a perfect laptop with almost all the features needed. Just go for it.
