HP Pavilion dv8-1190ee

 

The HP Pavillion can handle games pretty well and has much better specs than most other desktop replacements, but it is expensive

The HP Pavilion dv8-1190ee is a fast applications machine for a fair price. It can also handle games but isn't quite the best in the business.

HP Pavilion DV8-1080EA

 

Fast processor ans plenty of memory, big clear screen, good keyboard. Also like the the touch sensitive controls for the volume etc

Rather heavy to be classed as a 'Laptop' it is more of a desktop replacement. Having said that I use it on my lap
