Note: We haven't reviewed this specific 16-inch laptop from HP, but we have put together a roundup of several other 16-inch laptops. We consider these slightly larger screens to fit into the "mainstream" category, which also includes 14 and 15-inch displays, rather than the 17-inch desktop replacement category (which also includes a handful on 18-inch and larger systems).
