HP Pavilion HDX9095EA Entertainment Notebook


HP does something a little out of the ordinary with this 20.1in desktop replacement. Is it the perfect solution, or is it too clever by half?

With its HDX series, HP has taken the desktop replacement concept and raised the bar considerably. As such it's a very attractive machine and though the lack of a Full HD display to match its HD DVD drive may be disappointing, the superlative design...

HP Pavilion HDX9095EA laptop


When it comes to releasing a large screen notebook, HP has been a little slow off the mark. After all, both Acer and Dell have been selling theirs for close to a year now. However, the HP Pavilion HDX9095EA is well worth waiting for and certainly lives...

Great design, large screen

Awkward keyboard, too many features

The HP Pavilion HDX9095EA is a great machine. It’s power and fun to use and certainly warrants the asking price.

HP Pavilion HDX9003TX


If you're torn between a desktop and a notebook, perhaps a look at HP's new titan, the HP Pavilion HDX9003TX desktop replacement notebook will help yo...

HDMI, e-SATA, LightScribe, 7.1 output, four internal speakers and a subwoofer, 20in screen

The power supply is almost less mobile than the unit itself, battery life

There's a definite premium for all of this desktop functionality in a portable, notebook style machine. However, if you're willing to spend the money and need a less fixed computing solution, the HP Pavilion HDX9003TX is a great choice.

HP Pavilion HDX-9000 (Penryn)


If you can look past the 15-pound chassis and hefty price tag, the HDX-9000 (Penryn) laptop is your gateway to entertainment bliss.

1080p resolution. Sleek design. Powerful graphics card. New Penryn processor. Ultimate entertainment hub. TV tuner. Impressive speaker integration. Very good Blu-ray experience.

Heavy 15-pound frame. Expensive.

HP Pavilion HDX 9000 Review


A good looking system with top notch features and cool design, but a hefty price tag.

Gorgeous 20.1-inch display ; CPU supports high-end graphics

Very expensive ; Case shows fingerprints easily

At $3000, the earlier model is a better deal given its nearly comparable performance, but if you need extra storage and you work with high-end graphics that require an Extreme processor--and price is no object--you'll be happy with this HDX

HP Pavilion HDX9000


Despite its 15.4-pound weight, the HP Pavilion HDX9000 is the sleekest 20-inch laptop in the market. But it's gonna cost you.

Fastest Intel components available. River of LED-lit multimedia keys. HD TV tuner. Options for HD DVD-ROM and WUXGA screen in the summer. Good gaming scores. Best design for a 20-inch laptop. Great range of screen positions.

Back-breaking monster of a laptop. Huge AC adapter. Exorbitant price tag.

HP Pavilion HDX-9000


The 20.1-inch screen is the only reason why you would even consider this laptop. In many ways, its hinge design mimics the M2010's. The screen is held in place by an enormous bracket that extends halfway up the lid, while the other half of the hinge is...

It's the best 20-inch laptop on the market—that is, if you're willing to shell out the money for both the computer and the chiropractic fees.

High Quality Laptop with great look and feel and reasonable cost


I purchased this laptop last month for my personal entertainment use. The laptop is really slim, nice, simple, cute and beautiful cosmetic look. Very easy to use and have almost all functionalities and ports. Since it has 2 GB RAM, it is really super ...

Very reliable, good quality, nice look and feel, many ports, 4 USB ports

Little heavy, cannot fit in a regular laptop bag, not scratch protectant, less warranty
