HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 review


Cheap and cheerful, but the performance of this entry-level laptop is underwhelming

Brilliant touch screen ; Good battery life ; Full version of Windows 8 ; Quite portable ; Excellent connectivity

Very poor overall performance ; Screen quality isn't great ; Keyboard can be slightly tricky to use ; Heavy, considering its small size

The TouchSmart 11 would make a good buy for students on a tight budget, but business users will want more power. If we were making the decisions at HP, we would have left the touch capabilities out and spent the money on a faster processor or a better...

HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11-e030sa review


This touchscreen laptop is beautifully designed, but its slow processor and temperamental touchpad hold it back

The HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11-e030sa is an appealing laptop that's great for taking on the go, but when the superior Asus X200CA costs £30 less, even its good looks and longer battery life aren’t quite enough to win us over.

HP Pavilion 11 Touchsmart notebook


HP's Pavilion 11 Touchsmart is a good model to consider if you're after a laptop that's small, yet well featured. It's not overly fast, but it has enough grunt for basic Web, communications, and multimedia tasks.

Review HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11-e000sb Notebook


The beauty and the beast? The HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 looks nice, but can it offer enough performance with the AMD A4-1250? ...

High quality workmanship; Very long battery life; Integrated SD card reader; Premium service extends warranty by one year; The cable and plug are very robust

Hard-to-access USB ports; Modest brightness; Limited performance

The long-lasting battery of the notebook.

HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 Review and Ratings


This 11.6-inch laptop won't break the bank at $399 or thereabouts, and offers the full Windows 8 experience with a responsive touch screen and comfortable keyboard. But slow performance and a dim screen hold it back.

Good touch screen and touch pad ; Decent battery life ; Respectable sound ; Low price

Sluggish performance ; Heavy for its small size ; Low screen quality

Despite the HP's performance issues, its battery life turned out to be decent. The system trails the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch by a fair amount, but it still has enough juice to power an afternoon's worth of typing and Web browsing. Just don't keep too...

HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11-e030sa


Nice little touch screen laptop. Easy to use. Great battery life & quick charge up.

Can get a little slow when you have a few things going on. Browser reasonably quick but not quick as a ipad
