HP HDX18-1005ea 18.4in Notebook

 

An 18.4in Full HD screen, Blu-ray and a TV Tuner make this a substantial multimedia desktop replacement.

If you're after a desktop replacement with all the trimmings but don't want to pay the earth, the HP HDX18-1005ea should definitely be on your list. It has all the features a multimedia machine should have, looks the part and makes for an excellent...

HP HDX18 review

 

The HP HDX18 has some brawn to match its beauty. In our WorldBench 6 tests, HP's notebook scored a commanding 102. It's not quite the fastest we've seen, but it's more than powerful enough to play some games as well as video.

A terrific mediacentric desktop-replacement laptop, our only quibbles with the HP HDX18 revolve around its shiny screen, battery life and less than perfect audio. But these are minor issues, and the HP HDX18 is a hit where it counts - although at...

HP HDX18 review

 

HP's HDX line of laptops is fairly straightforward - it courts multimedia fiends. From its double-wide demeanour (with ample room for full qwerty keys and a keypad) to all the plugs and ports offered here, the HP HDX18 - a fairly fashionable desktop...

HP HDX 18

 

Flashy desktop replacement.

Good speed, Blu-ray, HDMI, comfortable keyboard, plenty of internal storage

Glossy screen is susceptible to reflections, doesn't use DDR3 memory, doesn't use 7200rpm hard drives, touchpad can be uncomfortable to use

Don't even think about using this notebook on the road; it's strictly for those who require a desktop replacement with home entertainment features. It has Blu-ray, HDMI and a high-definition screen. Even though it's a fast unit, it doesn't even have...

Big, beautiful 18.4-inch display Good speakers

Screen is a little too glossy Slightly redundant multimedia software

What kind of price can you put on this kind of entertainment PC? Quite a bit, actually. Our machine, as configured, will run you upwards of $2300. If that's a little too rich for your blood, scale back features, and you can get a baseline model for...

The HP’s massive screen almost requires you to watch some HD content from a Blu-ray disc or your telly. Excellent graphical performance will please all but the most stuck-up gamers. Reasonable price, considering its teeming features

The swooshy “liquid metal” paint job probably isn’t for everyone. Volume, bass and treble controls are flaky

HP HDX18t

 

The HDX18t has a stellar list of features. Unlike Acer with the 8920G and Toshiba with the G55-Q80w, HP had enough sense to put in an internal ATSC TV tuner. After all, the big screens are the highlight of these systems, and a tuner is just another way...

Remarkable 18.4-inch screen. Superb 1080p resolution. Desirable design and chrome interior. Integrated ATSC TV tuner. Variety of connectivity ports. Centrino 2 platform. Outstanding performance numbers

Pricey

The 18.4-inch screen will stop you in your tracks, and you'll soon realize that everything—not just the screen—screams high-end multimedia laptop.

HP HDX 18t User Review

 

I thought of my first personal computer as I was unboxing my new HP HDX 18 laptop. There in front of me was the sexiest computer I had ever laid eyes on since my first computer 20 years ago. (And believe me, folks, I've used a LOT of computers in that...

With dozens of computer manufacturers offering dozens of different laptop models, in every size, speed, and price point imaginable, true standout models are hard to find. Downright sexy laptops are even harder to come by. I can truthfully say, however,...
