Here’s a list of our recent HP laptop reviews. It includes the Omen, Envy, Pavilion and Victus ranges.

  • HP Omen Transcend 16 review

    HP Omen Transcend 16 review

    Omen is the HP’s flagship gaming brand. In the past, its laptops have been based around mid-range components and features, but the HP Omen Transcend 16 feels much more like a premium notebook… with the price tag to match. We’ve seen some highly attractive competitors in recent months, so how does the HP Omen 16…


  • HP Spectre Foldable 17 review (HP Fold)

    HP Spectre Foldable 17 review (HP Fold)

    HP only recently showed off its new folding, OLED convertible laptop at its HP Flex event that was peripheral to SXSW Sydney. It was commonly called the HP Fold but the official name is actually the overly descriptive HP Spectre Foldable 17 – something we can ordinarily get behind. We’ll see what sticks. It’s naturally…


  • HP Elite Dragonfly G4 review

    HP Elite Dragonfly G4 review

    The HP Elite Dragonfly G4 is designed to be a top-tier, business-grade ultraportable laptop and it didn’t take us long to suspect that HP might have succeeded. It’s not cheap – if you’re a non-corporate buyer – but could this be the business ultraportable laptop that you need? Specs Screen 13.5-inch, glossy, 60Hz, 1,920 x…


  • HP Pavilion X360 14 Review

    HP Pavilion X360 14 Review

    HP has an almost bewildering array of smart, business-class laptops, but the Pavilion isn’t one of them. It looks like a business laptop but, as our review explains, the HP Pavilion X360 14 is a business-like consumer convertible that’s designed to be a jack of all trades. Who should buy it? Specs Screen 14-inch, glossy,…


  • HP Omen 17 review

    HP Omen 17 review

    It’s been a long time since we’ve seen an HP Omen gaming laptop and too long since we’ve been mesmerised by the lovesome logo on the lid. However, the previous model offered great value in the mid-range while this model is wearing old technology in a market of cutting edge rivals. However, could that mean…


  • HP ZBook Power G9 review (2022)

    HP ZBook Power G9 review (2022)

    Of the three laptops HP recently sent us, the HP ZBook Power G9 differs in that it’s a beefy, (corporate) workstation rather than an ultraportable. It’s not a laptop for everyone, but how good is it and will those who demand software certification and workstation-oriented graphics do well to buy it? Specs Screen 15.6-inch, matte,…


  • HP Envy review (2022) | x360 2-in-1 13-inch

    HP Envy review (2022) | x360 2-in-1 13-inch

    The HP Envy x360 2-in-1 Laptop 13-bf0022TU (to give it its full name), is yet another another business-class, ultraportable in our labs. But, despite its office-friendly credentials it’s actually designated as a consumer-friendly device for Creators by HP. It’s a crowded market, but, on the surface, this Intel-Evo-certified Envy looks like it could shake things…


  • HP Elitebook X360 1040 G9 Review

    HP Elitebook X360 1040 G9 Review

    HP’s top-tier business-oriented have impressed us in the past and now the company has several different ranges hitting the market. This is the HP Elitebook X360 1040 G9 – that’s quite a mouthful so let’s decipher the name. Elitebook tells us that it’s a high-quality business-oriented ultraportable laptop with a metal subframe and sturdy, lightweight,…


  • HP Omen 16.1 Review

    HP Omen 16.1 Review

    Omen is HP’s flagship laptop range. It’s available in many SKUs which make use of Intel, AMD and Nvidia hardware. This HP Omen 16.1 is near the top of that range. We were recently disappointed by the recent HP Victus which is a second-tier offering, as despite the fact it offered some good performance at…


  • HP Victus 16 review

    HP Victus 16 review

    HP Victus is a replacement for HP’s not-so-sporty-sounding Pavilion gaming brand – sitting a tier down from the top-end Omen range. So, as a ‘budget’ gaming laptop, how does the HP Victus 16 fare when compared to some serious competitors from MSI, Acer and Asus? Key specs of the HP Victus 16 16-inch, matte, 144Hz,…
