Review HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11-e000sb Notebook

 

The beauty and the beast? The HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 looks nice, but can it offer enough performance with the AMD A4-1250? ...

High quality workmanship; Very long battery life; Integrated SD card reader; Premium service extends warranty by one year; The cable and plug are very robust

Hard-to-access USB ports; Modest brightness; Limited performance

The long-lasting battery of the notebook.

HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 Review and Ratings

 

This 11.6-inch laptop won't break the bank at $399 or thereabouts, and offers the full Windows 8 experience with a responsive touch screen and comfortable keyboard. But slow performance and a dim screen hold it back.

Good touch screen and touch pad ; Decent battery life ; Respectable sound ; Low price

Sluggish performance ; Heavy for its small size ; Low screen quality

Despite the HP's performance issues, its battery life turned out to be decent. The system trails the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch by a fair amount, but it still has enough juice to power an afternoon's worth of typing and Web browsing. Just don't keep too...

HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 review

 

Cheap and cheerful, but the performance of this entry-level laptop is underwhelming

Brilliant touch screen ; Good battery life ; Full version of Windows 8 ; Quite portable ; Excellent connectivity

Very poor overall performance ; Screen quality isn't great ; Keyboard can be slightly tricky to use ; Heavy, considering its small size

The TouchSmart 11 would make a good buy for students on a tight budget, but business users will want more power. If we were making the decisions at HP, we would have left the touch capabilities out and spent the money on a faster processor or a better...

HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11-e030sa review

 

This touchscreen laptop is beautifully designed, but its slow processor and temperamental touchpad hold it back

The HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11-e030sa is an appealing laptop that's great for taking on the go, but when the superior Asus X200CA costs £30 less, even its good looks and longer battery life aren’t quite enough to win us over.

HP Pavilion 11 Touchsmart notebook

 

HP's Pavilion 11 Touchsmart is a good model to consider if you're after a laptop that's small, yet well featured. It's not overly fast, but it has enough grunt for basic Web, communications, and multimedia tasks.

Purchased this laptop today and it's going back in the morning. It is so slow and just stops working in the middle of doing something.
