Best HP laptops 2018: the top HP laptops we’ve seen and tested

Uninhibited by its reputation in the past, the best HP laptop today looks a lot different than it would have ten years ago. As the Hewlett-Packard company has looked in the mirror and reflected on its history, we’re now seeing a more stylish and in-touch version of a $10 billion megacorporation. Finally we’re seeing traditional laptops take on contemporary designs like we never thought possible when Apple was the indisputable ring leader. 

Today, in the year 2018, you would be doing yourself a disservice to reduce the best HP laptop down to a single model. That’s why, through rigorous testing and masterful reviewing, we took it upon ourselves to arrange a list of 5 wildly different Windows 10-based computers to skim at your leisure. Each featuring a wide range of specs and utilities – for work or for play – here they are: our favorite picks of the best laptops HP has to offer.

1. HP Spectre x360

The perfect hybird laptop

CPU: 8th Gen Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: : Intel HD Graphics 620 | RAM: 8GB – 16GB | Screen: 13.3-inch, FHD (1,920 x 1,080) – UHD (3,840 x 2,160) | Storage: 256GB – 1TB SSD

HP has been steadily perfecting its flagship 13-inch convertible laptop and it’s among one of our favorite 2-in-1 laptops for a few years running. It has perfectly slim bezels and is lightweight enough to use as a tablet regularly. As a regular notebook, you won’t find many with a more tactile keyboard, brilliantly vibrant display or two Windows Hello biometric solutions.

2. HP Spectre 13

The thinnest Ultrabook

CPU: 8th Gen Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 | RAM: 8 – 16GB | Screen: 13.3-inch, FHD (1,920 x 1,080) – UHD (3,840 x 2,160) | Storage: 256GB – 1TB SSD

This may very well be the most gorgeous laptop we’ve ever laid our eyes (and hands) on. The ceramic white finish is complemented by a two-prong, glossy hinge design that’s absolutely irresistible. That’s all fine and dandy, but in terms of power it’s a real winner too. As a matter of fact, it leverages the sheer might of the most recent 8th-generation Intel CPUs nigh-flawlessly.

3. HP Pavilion 15

The all-around best laptop for school

CPU: AMD A10 – A12 or 7th Gen Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: : AMD Radeon R5 – R7 or Intel HD 620 Graphics; Nvidia GeForce 940MX | RAM: 8 –16GB | Screen: 15.6-inch HD (1366 x 768) – HD (1,920 x 1,080) | Storage: 128 – 512GB SSD; 1 – 2TB HDD

What it lacks in performance prowess, the HP Pavilion 15 makes up for in finesse. It’s one of the few remaining AMD-based laptops that HP is still making, which should certainly entice those on a budget. It’s affordable, but don’t think cheap. The HP Pavilion 15 is a rare example of a laptop that knows how to strike a balance, making it an excellent value proposition, especially for students.

4. HP Chromebook 14 G4

HP’s most affordable laptop

CPU: Intel Celeron N2840 – N2940 | Graphics: : Intel HD Graphics | RAM: 2 – 4 GB | Screen: 14-inch HD (1366 x 768) – HD (1,920 x 1,080) | Storage: 16 – 32GB eMMC

No one wants to blow their entire tax refund on a laptop, which is why laptops like the HP Chromebook 14 G4 exist to begin with. It’s economical without feeling cheap, a distinction that many Chromebooks have made since their inception six years ago. The HP Chromebook 14 G4 in particular boasts a subtle, yet refined appearance that will remain in style for years to come.

5. HP Omen X

The ultimate gaming laptop

CPU: 7th Gen Intel Core i7 | Graphics: : Nvidia GTX 1070 – 1080 | RAM: 12 – 32GB RAM | Screen: 17.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) 120Hz – UHD (3,840 x 2,160) | Storage: 128GB – 1TB SSD; 1TB HDD

Gaming laptops have long been criticized for their lack of upgradeability, thereby making them more disposable than a gaming desktop by nature. HP, on the other hand, has subverted this crucial flaw by adding an essential features that most gamer’s notebooks lack. Specifically, the Omen X adds overclocking, meaning you determine performance rather than HP.
