    HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx Laptop Review

    We tend to view 14-inch laptops as sitting in the sweet spot between portability and productivity. Whereas ultraportables are better for constant travelers and larger 15- and 16-inch laptops are better for general home use, we find that 14-inch models are a good size for your do-it-all, workhorse laptop: compact and light...

    HP LaserJet Pro P1102w

    The HP LaserJet Pro P1102w is a basic monochrome laser printer with a few surprises, namely better-than-expected speed and Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, its pricey toner offsets its very affordable purchase price. Standard 802.11b/g wireless (plus USB) gives a progressive lift to an otherwise typically configured low-end laser printer. The P1102w has a 150-sheet...

    HP Envy 14 Laptop Review

    The good: Less expensive than last year’s Envy models; highly configurable; solid design and construction. The bad: Heavy; ATI switchable graphics not as seamless as Nvidia’s; funky volume controls don’t play well with games.

    Workstations traditionally conjure up images of large, hulking boxes with lots of power—gaming rigs without the flair, almost. HP’s new EliteBook 8440w changes that perception with a workstation that won’t induce a hernia by carrying it. While not the most powerful of notebooks, the Core i7 processor and discrete graphics in this...

    HP Pavilion P6320Y Desktop Review

    The $700 HP Pavilion p6320y is a solid midlevel PC that occupies an uncomfortable middle ground. The $550 Gateway DX4831-01e is a better budget choice if you spend most of your computing time managing a music library or manipulating digital photos. Or a $730 desktop from Asus gives you generally better all-around...
