HP Pavilion G6 $430* (starting) $550 (as tested) Pros: The affordable 15.5-inch HP zipped through our file-transfer tests. Its screen display is clear, even at a broad angle — great if family gathers 'round to view photos. Testers enjoyed typing on its keyboard and using its trackpad, which is textured for a more "in control" feel. Cons: It may be a little too large for frequent traveling. The battery was only OK, lasting a smidgen over 4 hours on our tests.
