  • HP's Elitebook 2570p has the same strengths and weaknesses as the predecessor. Our main point of criticism remains the display - even though it is now slightly brighter, it is still too dark and consequently mobility (outdoor use) suffers.

    Plus points are the very comfortable keyboard and the touchpad/point stick combination. Build quality, sturdiness, port selection, and security features all support the status of the little Elitebook as a serious business laptop.


  • The HP EliteBook 2570p combines long battery life with a rock-solid design and smart software, making it a compelling business ultraportable.


  • The EliteBook 2570p may be chunky, but with good reason - the business market it's aimed at requires all the ports it can get, and a certain level of ruggedness. Add to this the impressive performance of the 12.5-inch laptop, and you have a laptop that would make the hardened business road warrior happy.


  • The HP EliteBook 2170p is a well-designed business ultraportable with a terrific keyboard and a solidly resilient chassis, and its reasonable priced and good feature set make it worthy of consideration.


  • Initially we asked the question: how should a mini EliteBook look, adhering to the quality standard of the series? Half of this and half of that would be the answer. Case, input devices, and run times meet the high expectations. What amazes us: after the throttling problems of the 14-inch sister model 8460p (2011) now even the smallest member of the series comes without any such performance losses.

    Performance is perhaps the right topic to at least partially justify the high price of the EliteBook.


  • The HP Elitebook 2170p is a light and durable business notebook with above-average battery life, but its small touchpad makes it tough to execute Windows 8 gestures.


  • You need to pay particular attention to the price when buying the Acer Aspire V3-771G. There are great differences between the inexpensive entry-level configuration and the 'premium devices' like our test sample. Looking at the current street prices, it ranges between EUR 595(~$750) to EUR 1299(~$1650). The differences are dependent on the installed CPU, GPU, mass storage, RAM and optical drive.


  • The Acer Aspire V3 delivers graphics punch and snappy overall performance at an affordable price.


  • The Acer Aspire V3-571G offers some impressive components for an affordable mid-sized notebook, but the sloppy craftsmanship and poor display ultimately dilutes what at first appears to be an impressive spec sheet.

    Toshiba's Satellite L855D-S5242 uses the update AMD APU with its Radeon HD 7640G integrated graphics which does still outperform even the new Intel HD graphics in a large number of cases. This combined with the above average hard drive and memory sizes will really appeal to those on a budget but needing to run a lot of applications simultaneously. The problem is that the battery life issues still haven't quite been resolved yet as it provides a below average running time.
