    Be warned the screen on the HP G6 series has a noticable screendoor effect, which spoils the screen. With it being LED the colours aren't that great either.

    Do you have a link for that as I can't find anything like that.

    Also I find LED better than TFT for screen colours.

    I noticed that there is a clock time issue with all HP Laptops in their Quick Web clock time as compared to the Windows clock time.

    The QWeb time is 1 hour behind the regular Windows time and if you try to adjust it, it would impact the other clock time.

    All new Buyers and existing HP Users need to beware and raise this issue as HP doesnt seem to realise the in-built fault in its Quick Web clock software with HP so they can get a resolution for it OR refund / compensation for same.

    Wouldnt suggest buying HP laptop as Support service even if under warranty is pathetic :(

    "pavilion" is a synonym for "avoid"

    http://www.digitaltrends.com/laptop-reviews/hp-pavilion-g6-review/ - specifically mentions screendoor
    http://www.amazon.com/review/RXGI6K519Q7UG/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#RXGI6K519Q7UG - DV6 which is a higher spec HP model, user mentions screendoor, same spec display as G6 most likely.

    And I purchased a G6 recently, and I can personally vouch for the screendoor and the colours looked more washed out compared to my previous Toshiba 15.6" screen.

    im using a dv6 and have no problems... its now over a year old, but punches way above its weight.
    its got just 4gb DDR3, but with a 2.8ghz phenom its fast. and ati/amd GPU's are much more efficient than geforce. sure geforce will deliver the goods, but suck the life out of your battery. being a 'discreet-class' card, its probably not designed for running skyrim at max specs with WoW in the background, but watching hd video through the HDMI to a tv @ 1080p will be perfect.

    to confirm the led screen issues, the veiwing angle really is 90 degrees +/- 15 in any direction.. anything past that and you will lose colour/contrast/brightness..
    that said.. its a laptop. designed to go on ones lap. right in front of you. and it has hingesto make sure its facing the right way.
    for the price its good, not amazing, but you could buy much worse for £300

    I think you mean CCFL. TFT refers to the type of liquid-crystal screen and LED specifies how the LCD is illuminated from the rear.

    Anyone know where I can get a decent 15.6" laptop with resolution greater than 1366*768? Everything seems to be this resolution now and I'm replacing a 1440*900 15" laptop and don't feel like downgrading on the screen res...

    The new Macbook Pro might have enough pixels for you! :{

    But seriously, check here for 1440x900 screens:

    http://search.laptopsdirect.co.uk/nav/resolution/144000x900/type/laptops/0

    and here for 1600x900:

    http://search.laptopsdirect.co.uk/nav/resolution/160000x900/type/laptops/0?&isort=price

    The cheaper Asus ones start at around £400, and look reasonable.

    If you can afford it, the Sony centre have some decent ones for just a shade under £500. Sony often have decent quality and high res. screens for quite reasonable cash. Check here:

    Have you tried changing the time in the BIOS?

    To be honest, I haven't come across any mainstream PC manufacturer apart from Apple who have satisfactory customer service. Your only hope is the retailer nowadays!

    I don’t really rate HP Stuff at all, their business class desktops are pretty good but that’s about it. In my case two HP slimline desktops circa 2009 cooked themselves quite literally and an HP laptop with the common Nvidia chipset issue also went toast. All under two years old then they failed.

    New Macbook Pro has more pixels than I can shake a fabergé egg at, but unfortunately the pence-per-pixel ratio is somewhat high compared to what I'm after ;).

    Thanks for the links, didn't know of that search on Laptops Direct, cheers!

    Thanks for the link, the laptop is actually for my other half and she's quite particular about keyboard and trackpad and she does seem to like the Sony offerings in this regard! I appreciate the help guys.

    I've had once of these since last October , from day one the fan has been load.....within 4 months the mouse button has broke and also it has overheating issues, currently waiting on outcome for either full refund or repair by HP.

    Also when typing you can catch the mouse by accident which really is annoying when writing letters have reverted to external keyboard.

    lol? You either don't have a G6 or you haven't discovered what double tapping the top left of the touchpad does (switches off the touchpad).
