They say you get what you pay for, and that is definitely the case with the various HP Pavilion G6 models. It is a very entry level laptop, and don't expect it to last beyond the 2 year EU-directed warranty. The laptop itself is very 'plasticy', with the included hardware cheap as chips - the Realtek in-built wireless hardware failed after 18 months of owning my Intel-based Pavilion G6, followed by the USB ports and ethernet, then finally hard drive failure. If you google this model you will see this is a very common problem for many Pavilion G6 owners. Even before the hardware failures I had issues with the gesture trackpad and overall performance (a very slow 4 minutes to start Windows for example, terrible even for these low specs, and memory problems switching between Office programs)
I'm therefore writing this review to say do research a bit more widely than recent purchasers before making your final decision. All laptops will suffer from problems but when the same one comes up again and again, as I discovered was the case with the G6 wireless hardware, that's when it is not worth the purchase money even for something basic.
At the end of the day you'll get what you pay for - something heavy and cheap-looking with a short life-expectancy. That said, there are better basic models out there for a similar price if that's your main concern - try Lenovo for example.
