HP has updated another of their laptops with Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors, among other changes, but this time in a low-profile manner by sneaking out the affordable Pavilion g6s. This 15.6 inch laptop sports a ‘traditional’ chiclet-style laptop keyboard sans number pad, choice of Intel Sandy Bridge processors, from dual core Core i3 to Core i5 to the highest end dual-core Core i7 processor, configurable up to 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, 750GB hard disk and choice between Intel Integrated Graphics or either a 512 MB or 1 GB AMD Radeon 6470M dedicated graphics card. The laptop also comes with Altec Lansing branded speakers and you get to pick between five paint jobs: gray, red, blue, purple or pink.
Sadly, the only bummer is the rather low resolution of 1366 x 768 for a 15.6 inch display, but then again, it’s an entry-level/budget laptop. HP says that prices ‘start from $550’ although the base price for the configurable model starts at $580 for some reason.
