HP Pavilion x360
HP's Pavilion x360 adds Beats Audio (for now) and rugged construction to the expanding field of 11-inch Yoga-likes, but Lenovo's version feels much more upscale.
HP Spectre 13t-3000 Ultrabook
The HP Spectre 13 is an excellent all-around ultrabook, with a great keyboard, display, and battery life. The unique Control Zone touch pad is interesting, but I wish it were a little more useful and intuitive.
HP Chromebook 11
A fresh look and comfortable feel make HP’s 11-inch budget Chromebook an appealing bet, especially for households that need a cheap no-frills Web-surfing Google Netbook. If you’re not thinking about productivity, though, you’re better off with a tablet.
HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11z
HP revives an 11-inch favorite with the Pavilion TouchSmart 11z, but there are better performance-for-money deals to be had.
HP EliteBook Revolve
HP’s EliteBook Revolve 810 is a good first step toward a very portable business laptop-tablet hybrid, but lack of a killer battery life hurts it.
HP ElitePad 900
If someone else is footing the bill, HP's expensive ElitePad 900 and its accessory ecosystem cover a lot of bases, but this isn't going to be a consumer crossover product.
HP Spectre XT TouchSmart 15-4010nr Ultrabook
The HP Spectre TouchSmart XT is a rare superslim 15-inch laptop with a touch screen, but for the premium price, it should include more high-end extras.
HP Envy x2
The HP Envy x2’s capacity to be a full Windows 8 tablet or dock with a keyboard works as well as advertised, provided you’re willing to live with slower performance at a high price. You’re paying for style.
HP EliteBook Folio 9470m
The HP Elitebook Folio 9470m does a serviceable job at being a good thin all-around Windows 8 business laptop, but it doesn’t rise from the pack, and it doesn’t take any chances.
HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4
The HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is a good gateway to the Windows 8 experience with a responsive touch screen in a traditional laptop body.
