[Review] HP 14-dh2011nr: So Close to Perfection It's Mad

 

Pros
  • Full HD 14-inch touchscreen display
  • 512 GB of SSD storage / 8 GB of RAM
  • Core i5 CPU
  • Ample connectivity options
Cons
  • Limited battery life
  • RAM is not upgradable

We're not ashamed to admit we were not fans of the convertible laptop when it arrived on the market back in 2014. Sure enough, the concept was good but the internals left a lot to be desired with most convertibles essentially being paperweights suitable for browsing the web and watching cat videos. 

Fortunately for us, the tide has very much turned over the last few months and we're seeing more and more convertibles that are actually respectable laptops with respectable specs at realistic prices. Such is the case of the HP 14-dh2011nr in review today.

HP has managed to dominate the convertible space with its X360 lineup and this model is quite possibly the crown jewel of said lineup, at least when it comes down to a price/spec relationship. With a massive 512 GB of SSD storage, a powerful 10th generation i5 processor, and a generous battery life, this convertible has managed to conquer the top 100 positions more times than we can count. But, is this convertible right for you? That's what we're here to figure out today. 

[Review] HP 14-fq0050nr: It's Probably Not For You


Pros
  • Touch-screen display
  • Variety of connectivity options
  • Generous Battery Life (>10 Hours)
  • Super cheap price.
Cons
  • 4 GB of RAM (not upgradable)
  • 64 GB of eMMC storage.

Not everyone is looking for a powerhouse when searching for a laptop. Not everyone's a programmer or a graphic designer, and many people will barely even open a spreadsheet on a laptop let alone edit it. For these people, manufacturers have developed what is popularly known as a cloudbook, Windows's answer to the Chromebook surge. 

Basically, these are extremely affordable laptops with limited specs such as storage and RAM that focus more on having a long-lasting battery life, a portable design, and essentially on being devices set up to consume information and to do some light office tasks such as editing documents and so forth.

Today we're here to tackle one of such devices, the popular HP 14-fq0050nr, an affordable cloudbook that has managed to garner stellar reviews amongst users, especially amongst those buying this laptop for students. But, should you buy it? That's what we're here to find out!

[Review] HP 16U74UA#ABA (17-by3072cl): Impressive Stuff!

       



While it's true that 17-inch laptops are far from mainstream these days when the new standard is the 14-inch laptop, we can't forget that there's still a market who looks for bigger screen real estate, a market that's looking for a laptop that's powerful as well as big enough to replace their desktops yet allows for portability when needed.

Such is the case of HP's recently launched HP 17-by3072cl, also known in some sites as the HP 16U74UA#ABA (one is the product number and the other the laptops name). Either way, HP's new laptop has managed to gather quite a following thanks to its integration of the latest Core i7 processor, a generous storage option of 512 GB, a relatively lightweight design that doesn't reach the 6-pound mark as well as its extremely balanced price point

Yet, is it worth buying? And, more importantly; is this the laptop you've been looking for? Today we're set on figuring this out on this review of the HP 16U74UA#ABA / HP 17-by3072cl.

  • AMD Ryzen 7
  • 1 TB SSD storage
  • Integrated fingerprint sensor

Asus has really stepped things up this year with its VivoBook lineup.

But, is it worth buying? And, more importantly, is it suitable for you? That's what we're here to figure out today in this review of the ASUS VivoBook 15 S513IA-DB74.


[Review] HP Envy x360 15-dr1072ms: Now We're Talking!

 

Pros
  • Full HD touchscreen
  • Intel Core i7 CPU for demanding users
  • A massive 512 GB storage
  • Good battery life
  • Competitive price point
Cons
  • No ethernet port

Convertible laptops might not have become the smash hit everyone thought they would a few years back but there's undoubtedly still a niche that's very interested in these devices which keep getting updates and interesting specs alongside the more traditional laptop format.

For many people, a highly efficient laptop that can double as a tablet is pretty much the dream, albeit a slightly larger tablet than most of us are used to. One brand in particular has managed to take this segment by storm, we're talking, of course, about HP and their Envy x360 lineup

Today, we're here to review one of the latest models to launch within this lineup, specifically the HP Envy x360 15-dr1072ms.

[Review] HP 15 DY1031WM: HP (Almost) Nailed It!

Pros
  • Core i3 CPU for a solid performance
  • 8 GB of RAM for comfortable multitasking
  • 256 GB of Storage
  • Massive battery life w/quick charge.
Cons
  • HD Display
  • No Ethernet port


HP has managed to fill up 2020 with a slew of interesting laptop proposals that go from the very basic entry-level models, such as the recently reviewed HP 15-DW1083WM, to very high-end laptops designed for the most demanding set of users. 

However, most of us don't fit in either of these use cases as most people need a nice mid-range laptop that can deliver a solid performance on everyday tasks without emptying out or bank accounts in the process. 

Such is the case of its shiny new mid-range, the HP 15 DY1031WM. A compelling laptop that hooked us in with its competitive price and knocked us out thanks to its pretty awesome features. Without further ado, let's see what all the fuss is about.
