HP laptops offer something for you, whether you're a creative looking to edit photos, a gamer in search of aor a student in need of a small, lightweight laptop.
Many of the best HP laptops have features designed for remote or hybrid work such asand microphones, , longer battery life, and the .
Like other PC makers such as Dell, Lenovo, Acer and Asus, HP is in the midst of updating the processors in its laptops and two-in-ones. That means Intel-based models are moving from 11th-gen to 12th-gen CPUs, while AMD Ryzen systems are switching from 5000-series chips to 6000-series. It also means it's generally a good time to look for deals on older models of the best HP laptops. However, we've also seen big performance improvements with the new processors. An updated model might cost a little more but will add to the overall longevity.
Spectre is HP's top consumer laptop line so you're getting the best of the best with this 16-inch two-in-one.
Of course, a premium two-in-one like the Spectre x360 comes at a relatively high price; it starts at around $1,200. The top-end configuration we reviewed was good but not great considering its $2,030 price. This is definitely one we recommend getting with the 12th-gen Intel processors and Intel Arc graphics if you're going to go all-in. Read our HP Spectre x360 16 review.
HP's Victus 16 is a surprisingly robust and powerful gaming laptop that keeps up with the latest games at a more affordable price. Compared to HP's high-end Omen gaming laptop line, the Victus is more of an all-purpose laptop but still configured for gaming with a price starting at less than $1,000. HP offers several configurations with graphics chip options ranging from Nvidia's entry-level GeForce GTX 1650 up to a midrange RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 6500M. We like almost everything about it except for its flimsy display hinge and underwhelming speakers. Read our HP Victus 16 review.
There are plenty of convertible Chromebooks, where the screen flips around to the back of the keyboard so you can use it as a tablet. But Chrome tablets with removable keyboards like the HP Chromebook x2 11 are still a rarity. It offers long battery life and performance that rises (slightly) above the competition. The main downside is that it's expensive; the model we reviewed is $599. However, that price did include both the keyboard cover and USI pen and it's regularly on sale for $200. If you're interested make sure to wait for one of those deals. Read our HP Chromebook x2 11 review.
If you're making a laptop aimed at creatives, it's not enough to just put discrete graphics and a strong processor in a slim body. The extra performance really should be paired with a good screen, and that's what you get with the HP Envy 14. The laptop's 16:10 14-inch 1,920x1,200-pixel display not only gives you more vertical room to work, but is color-calibrated at the factory and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. The result: a well-rounded option for creatives looking for on-the-go performance at a reasonable price. This model is due for a refresh, though, so keep an eye out for updated models.

For similar laptops, there are a number of stark differences when you compare the MacBook Pro 13 vs the HP Envy 13, two of the best laptops for students on the market right now. HP’s offering is a versatile 2-in-1 with otherwise traditional PC architecture (and, naturally, running Windows out of the box), while Apple’s latest “budget Pro” boasts their shiny second generation M2 SoC and proprietary OS.
At a glance, contrasting the MacBook Pro 13 vs the HP Envy 13 doesn’t reveal a clear cut winner in the battle for students' precious dollars. Regardless of major, there are certain features virtually all students expect from their laptops—they need to be capable, portable, and affordable, the three pillars that represent the “crumb” of the laptop cake for students. But the icing is important as well, the bells and whistles that wow in display cases and review videos and are often the determining factor when it’s time to actually commit to one machine or another.
So which machine best balances substance and flash with that vital third ingredient, value? Read on to find out.
Oh, and if you want to see what else Apple has to offer for students, we also have our guide to the best MacBooks for students and advice on how to get the Apple student discount too.
It may come as a surprise to the Cupertino faithful who celebrate Apple’s legendary understated aesthetic, but the design of the 2022 MacBook Pro 13 is largely a miss. The existing 13-inch model doesn’t benefit from the streamlined redesign with which last year’s high end MacBook Pros were blessed, but instead look identical to the chassis from previous models with new hardware stuffed inside. With virtually identical dimensions to HP’s competitor, the only real standout design feature on the Apple side is the divisive Touch Bar which, personally, I’ve always found more of an irritant than a boon.
HP has also done little on the design side to update the Envy, but it benefits from an “if it ain’t broke” legacy that continues to pay dividends. The convertible 2-in-1 chassis edges out Apple’s traditional clamshell purely on the strength of its flexibility and versatility, continuing to admirably fill the nebulous space between tablet and desktop, with some of the most appealing features of both.
Winner: HP Envy 13
This year’s Pro 13 comes with Apple’s much touted new M2 SoC, which (according to the manufacturer) boasts an 18% faster CPU and 35% faster GPU compared to the previous generation. It’s also possible to bump the RAM up to 24GB from the base 16, but that upgrade will tag another $400 onto the price tag, a dubious value proposition for a mere 8GB of memory.
The M2 is a very capable platform and undoubtedly represents the biggest upgrade in this year’s model, but it still falls short in terms of consistent, high load processing. That said, for most students it should be more than sufficient for classroom tasks or tackling homework assignments, and in GPU terms it handily outperforms the Intel SoC powering the Envy.
The standout spec on the HP side is that 12th Gen Intel processor in this year’s model, either a core i7-1250U or core i5-1230U, both extremely efficient and powerful SoCs. The Envy also proudly wears the third edition of the Intel’s Evo badge, which means it hits a certain number of key performance marks defined by Intel. These include things like consistent responsiveness on battery, waking from sleep in less than one second, and support for features like Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) and dynamic background noise suppression.
There’s also the Envy’s 2.8K OLED touchscreen, which may seem like a downgrade from the previous model’s 4K option but which puts significantly less stress on the battery, while being almost indistinguishable from a visual clarity perspective. Combined with the responsiveness and broader feature set provided by HP, it means the Envy just barely ekes out a win in a pure specs comparison.

Winner: HP Envy 13
Both of these machines claim an impressive 20+ hours of battery life based largely on power efficiency improvements in the M2 and Intel 12th Gen SoCs. As we haven't tested both of these models here at the site yet to corroborate those claims, the battery life showdown remains a draw based on manufacturer specs.
A cursory glance at the base models of both machines would indicate a clear winner in this category, with the HP Envy 13 starting at a very reasonable $899, while the MacBook Pro’s cheapest iteration will run you a hefty $1,299. However, the Envy’s starting price is slightly deceptive, as that sub-$900 model includes the lower tier core i5 processor and a mere 8GB of RAM, which in the current landscape is quite spare, especially if you plan on doing any gaming or multitasking even moderately memory-intensive applications.
Jumping up to the core i7 model and a more reasonable 16GB of RAM, and selecting the 2.8K resolution display in lieu of the 1920 x 1200 default, and the Envy’s price tag increases to $1,179. However, securing the same 16GB of RAM on the MacBook Pro 13 will tack $200 onto Apple’s base price, or $400 for 24GB, and so the edge still goes to the folks at Hewlett Packard.
Winner: HP Envy 13
While both of these machines are fine choices for a student on the go, the Envy 13 gets our nod by a slight margin due largely to its potential as a multirole device and its flexible pricing. While you need to bolt several hundred dollars on to the starting price to get a machine that goes round for round with Apple’s counterpart, there is a significantly cheaper model available that’s still a very capable machine, whereas Apple doesn’t offer a base model anywhere near the sub-$900 range.
Even in areas where the MacBook Pro might be a superior option based on the hardware under the hood, it comes with caveats that make it a tough sell. The superior onboard GPU, for instance, would seem to recommend the Pro 13 for gaming, but Apple will always be hamstrung in terms of game libraries when compared to the offerings on PC.
Ultimately, though, it comes down to the Envy’s versatility as a tablet stand-in or desktop alternative that secures it the win. It matches the MacBook almost evenly for traditional applications, but also offers a crisp 2.8K touchscreen that expands its functionality into realms the MacBook simply can’t reach.

After everything that happened in 2020, it seems increasingly likely that we'll all be working from home for the foreseeable in 2021, which also applies to students around the world. And as such, with remote learning and studying more important than ever, getting the right laptop has never been more important. That's where the HP Pavilion 14 comes in.
That's because, right now, we consider the best student laptop for most people the HP Pavilion 14, thanks to its strong all-round specs, high portability and low price. If your needs mainly involve writing, browsing, and light media editing, the Pavilion 14 is a very strong choice.
The design of the Pavilion 14 is fairly plain but let's face it, what matters are the things you can do and that's where this laptop shines. With Windows 10 Home preinstalled, and a lot of power onboard, there's much pretty nothing that's out of bounds. The generous 14-inch display is the star of the show, offering a great balance of screen real estate and portability.
HP says there's up to 11 hours of usage – think web browsing and emails – which is easily enough for a long day in the library (or on the sofa) without having to find a plug. HMDI, USB-C, and a range of other ports come as standard, too.
Let's jump into the HP Pavilion 14 deals.
Whether you're a student adjusting to online courses or someone who needs to work from home for the foreseeable future, HP's Pavilion 14 will serve your needs.
HP has put forward a small robot it says can dramatically speed up construction work, by autonomously printing guidelines straight from the blueprints onto the floor. Rugged, roadworthy and extremely accurate, Siteprint is a super-quick layout tool.
The robot replaces the time-consuming manual process of site layout, using a variety of different inks to place precise lines, exact curves and faithful reproductions of complex shapes on all kinds of floors, from porous surfaces like concrete and plywood to terrazzo, vinyl or epoxy.
It doesn't require a perfectly smooth or clean floor – indeed, it can handle a certain degree of surface irregularity and obstacles up to 2 cm (0.8 in) high. It runs built-in obstacle and cliff drop sensors for fully autonomous operation, and will work around barriers even if they're not in the plans.
As well as layout lines, it's capable of printing more or less whatever else you need on the floor too, including text notes. Operators set it up using cloud-based tools for job preparation, fleet management and tracking, and can run it on site with a touch-screen tablet and a tripod-mounted "totalstation."
“The existing manual layout process can be slow and labor intensive,” said Albert Zulps, Director of Emerging Technology at Skanska - a global construction and development company currently using the SitePrint system for two of its US projects. "Despite being done by specialists, there is always the risk of human error, which can result in costly reworks. Layout experts are a scarce resource who add a lot of value in terms of planning and strategy, but often end up dedicating most of their time to manual execution. HP SitePrint lets us do more with less, helping reduce schedules thanks to a much faster layout process, and allowing senior operators to focus on other critical activities like quality control.”
While HP hasn't announced pricing, we assume the printer robot itself will be surprisingly cheap, but the ink's gonna be a killer. Yuk yuk.

“January is going to be here before you know it,” says Damian Dunn, a certified financial planner and vice president of corporate financial wellness platform Your Money Line.
Payments resume in January 2023. But, Dunn says, with upcoming holidays, between now and January is prime spending and borrowing time for many people. As a result, many borrowers may be overextended in January if they don’t plan now.
They won’t just pick up where they left off in March 2020, when payments and interest were halted. Payment amounts and options could be different.
Borrowers can expect their remaining loan balance to be re-amortized after cancellation. That means their cancellation amount, either $10,000 or $20,000, will be deducted from the total they owe. Their time to payoff won’t change, but they will get a new monthly bill based on the recalculation of the remaining balance. Many borrowers will see a smaller bill as a result.
Here’s what to do next.
Prioritize completing the Public Service Loan Forgiveness, or PSLF, waiver if your work makes you eligible. The Department of Education can count more payments toward the 120 needed for forgiveness under the waiver. This means you could see full forgiveness much sooner.
The last day to apply for the waiver is Oct. 31.
You can still apply for PSLF after the waiver ends, but the terms won’t be as generous.
If you’ve been making regular payments during the pandemic pause without financial strain, continue to do so. Keeping up payments during the pandemic means you saved money because your dollars went straight to the principal balance.
However, if you weren’t making payments during the pandemic, start setting aside your payment amount now to ensure it will fit back into your budget. By doing so, you could pay a three-month lump sum once payments resume.
If your student loan bill is smaller after cancellation is applied, keep making your original payment amount if you can. This way, you’ll save money on interest costs and pay down your debt faster.
Making space in your finances allows you time to adjust your budget if necessary. But you have other options if you can’t make it work.
Read: Were your student loans forgiven? Here’s where to put some of that extra cash now
If you know you’ll have problems making your monthly payments, contact your servicer to discuss options for income-driven repayment, or IDR. Four income-driven repayment plans currently set your payment at 10% of your discretionary income. Payments could be set at $0 if your income is low.
These plans also wipe out your remaining balance after 20 or 25 years.
Borrowers can also look forward to a new income-driven repayment option, announced alongside cancellation. The new plan will decrease the amount of income that counts as discretionary and halve the payment percentage to 5%. It will also cut the time to forgiveness to five years for those whose original total loan balance was $12,000 or less.
While unpaid interest continues to accrue and capitalize under existing plans, the government will cover unpaid interest with the new IDR. This means borrowers who want to decrease their monthly payments — potentially by half or more — and don’t mind extending their repayment term could benefit most from the new plan.
However, high-income borrowers may not see lower payments with income-driven repayment.

If you want to pay down your debt faster and don’t want to refinance with a private lender, the best strategy is:
Consider refinancing if you have private student loans or federal debt carrying higher rates.
With student loan refinancing, borrowers replace their existing loan with a new one. Ideally, the new loan will have a lower interest rate and more favorable repayment terms.
Student loan refinancing rates have been rising, but borrowers with the strongest credit profiles may still find a lower rate.
Borrowers shouldn’t refinance until at least 2023 — once cancellation is applied to their account and the interest-free forbearance is over. If you refinance, your federal student loans will become private and no longer eligible for federal benefits, like forgiveness and IDR.
The decision to refinance should come down to the long-term financial benefit, says Clark Kendall, a certified financial planner and president of Kendall Capital Management. For example, if you can get from a 7% rate to a 5% rate, you can save that 2% or increase your 401(k) contribution.
Also see: You had $10,000 in student loan debt canceled. Should you pay off your credit-card bill — or take advantage of the bearish stock market?
Dunn cautions borrowers also to consider their risk of losing federal benefits. “I would double-check the math and make sure you are going to be in a better position,” he says. “Maybe a slightly smaller payment doesn’t outweigh the overall benefit of having federal protections.”
