This is a great-looking laptop with an uncommon 7200rpm hard drive. Overall performance isn’t as fast as some of the other HP laptops in this list, but is still more than enough for simple home use.
3. HP Pavilion dm4-1050ea
The HP Pavilion dm4 is very nearly a solid all-rounder, and a laptop that we’d heartily recommend. There’s plenty to like, from the slim and light form to the excellent Core i5 performance.
4. HP EliteBook 8440p
A resilient design, fantastic usability and lashings of power make this Core i7-powered 14-inch laptop ideal for corporate users and for students.
5. HP Pavilion dv8-1250ea
If you’re seeking a high-powered, big-screen media centre for enjoying games, music and HD movies with the whole family, the Pavilion dv8-1250ea has a lot to offer. The quad-core Core i7 processor and 1080p screen make this ideal for video playback, and the Nvidia graphics are capable of solid gaming performance, too.
