When we think of HP laptops a few things immediately come to mind: sleek designs, comfortable keyboards and touchpads and (at least on higher end machines) Beats Audio. We also continue to be impressed by HP’s wide selection, ranging from 11-inch convertibles to big-screen multimedia systems. But not every system this company makes is a winner. To make shopping easier for you here are the best HP laptops available.
HP ZBook 15
The 15.6-inch HP ZBook 15 workstation is a powerhouse. Built to handle demanding computing tasks, the $2,486 notebook combines an Intel 2.7-GHz Core i7 Haswell processor with Nvidia Quadro graphics, 16GB of RAM and a Thunderbolt port for extra-speedy data transfers. Rounding out the features list are a removable bottom for swapping out hard drives and a fingerprint scanner for added security.
HP Pavilion g6z-2200,
The HP Pavilion g6z-2200 may be a low-priced budget system but, for $454, it’s rich in amenities. The AMD-powered 15.6-inch system offers a solid Windows 8 experience, comes with a boisterous Dolby sound system, and packs in a cozy full-size keyboard complete with number pad.
HP Elitebook 2570p,
If you’re looking for a business notebook with rock-solid security and durability features, the EliteBook 2570p should be near the top of your list. HP’s $829 12.5-inch notebook offers good performance, a MILSPEC-tested chassis, HP’s powerful ProtectTools security software, and a wide variety of ports and an optical drive you don’t normally see in a system this size.
HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook,
Most Chromebooks are small netbook-like affairs, with screens 12 inches and smaller, but this $329 notebook is designed to offer a better video -and photo-viewing experience with a spacious 14-inch wide-screen display. Throw in a comfortable full-size keyboard and you’ve got a quality Chromebook from HP.
HP EliteBook Folio 9470M,
Those in the market for a business Ultrabook want a sleek design and a fast boot time, but they also want a durable machine with strong security and full docking capabilities. This $1,399 laptop has all of the above, plus Ethernet and VGA ports and more than 7 hours of battery life.
HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook 15t-4000,
Although you probably can’t say its name without taking a breath, the HP Spectre XT Touch Smart Ultrabook 15t-4000 hopes to take your breath away with a sleek chassis, swift Intel Core i7 processor and a 1080p touch-screen display. This machine also offers Beats Audio and is one of the few Windows laptops to feature a Thunderbolt port for fast data transfers. If you’re willing to sacrifice some battery life and graphics oomph, you’ll be happy to own this Ultrabook.
Hp Elitebook Revolve 810,
Despite all the new Windows 8 hybrids and slider notebooks, sometimes it’s best to stick with the classics. The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 is a traditional convertible, meaning its screen rotates to switch this ultraportable from notebook to tablet mode. It’s an investment at $1,449, but HP keeps the Revolve fresh with an attractive, durable, and light design, and an excellent keyboard and a fast SSD.
