HP Pavilion G6 laptop review. The 15.6-inch budget model line of HP Pavilion laptops is very popular not only because of it's affordable but because HP makes some of the best laptops in the world. Of course there are many examples where HP laptops really fail against the strong competition from Dell, Toshiba and Asus (like the really unsuccessful HP DV series). As you probably there are so many cheap Toshiba laptops currently on the market.

HP Pavilion G6 can be found with many different configurations with the Intel Core i5 processor.
Here is an example configuration of the Pavilion G6 that you can currently find at eBay for just £400 (HP Pavilion G6 B1Y18EA#ABU).
