A very good compact laptop full of features and gadgets. With a 12.1 inch screen it gives you more flexibility on using your laptops whilst travelling on a train, car, bus. It is light-weight and slim, compared to the standard 14" laptops. I found it easy to use whilst on the go, especially when travelling. With high battery life over 6 hours of usage

Although its priced at £1400+, this laptop gives you high spec, it has enough capacity to download, store and play DVDs, movies, MP4s etc. The good thing about newer HP laptops are they all come with built in web-cams, ideal for social networking, live straming etc.

The down side to this laptop is it can be pricey for novice laptop users with general internet use. Although the Elitebook has a 1.86Ghz, it is not the fastest, and would not suit gaming. The buttons are quite small and compact, so it may be not suitable for people with big/wide fingers.
