HP Pavilion G6-2242ea review

 

An impressive specification, but the G6-2242ea is just too slow to recommend

HP Pavilion G6 review

 

HP's Pavilion G6 isn't what you might call attractive. The dreary grey plastic that forms its chassis is hardly inspiring, but underneath there are some surprisingly powerful components, including a quad-core processor and dedicated graphics.

Has powerful components, but it isn’t significantly faster than the better looking Pavilion DV6
