HP Pavilion Ultrabook 14-b003SA review


It's not much to look at and we've seen better displays, but this Ultrabook packs plenty of processor power into its slim chassis

HP Pavilion 14 (914-b003SA) review


In addition to its expensive Envy range of Ultrabooks, HP also offers a number of more affordable slimline laptops in its Pavilion range. These are sometimes referred to as Ultrabooks and sometimes as 'Sleekbooks', depending on which web page you look...

The Pavilion 14 provides good performance and value for money, and would be a good choice for students or other people who need a capable laptop but can't stretch to £400 or £500. Battery life could be better, though, so it's not the best choice if...

Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim speakers review


Hercules' affordable XPS 2.1 40 Slim speakers are indeed remarkably slender, but they sound noticeably worse than the competition. Avoid.

The XPS may be attractive because of its low price and slender design, but we suspect the slim satellites' insubstantial drivers are at least partially responsible for the poor audio quality, which is deeply flawed in every respect. Unless you’re...

  (Rating Hidden)

HP's Pavilion brand has long been the laptop manufacturer's piggy in the middle - it's neither entry level nor top of the range, offering decent specifications at an affordable price. But does the HP Pavilion 14 make too many compromises to be worth a...

At £250 it's cheaper than most budget Windows laptops and if you're looking for a cheap laptop for basic web browsing, word processing and spreadsheets then the Pavilion Chromebook works quite well. A lack of 3G connectivity may help keep the price...

Strong performance, Swappable battery, Attractive price (with online rebate), Reasonable port selection, Excellent speakers, Good Webcam

Low resolution for screen size, Small, antiquated touch pad, Peculiar key arrangement

The answer? That totally depends on your needs. Where the thinner and lighter 11.6-inch models are easier to pack and take with you, making them much more travel-friendly, the bulkier Pavilion 14 is more suited for working around home or the office. We...

Expert Review


At the given moderate price-point, the HP Pavilion Ultrabook 14-B048TU (C9L70PA) (A9R92PA) rolls in a burly pack of outstanding features smartly packaged into a neat and classy design. It is yet another power-packed mean machine from HP?s cache of...

Never worked properly


Never worked properly. From the start the screen was glitching, was fixed under warranty, came back and now won't stop freezing! Waste of money and time, I have now switched to an Apple I love it, so fast and sleek. Always bought HP before, but now I...
