HP pavilion 17
- Generous specs for the price
- Extremely versatile

The HP Pavilion 17 is a laptop that is popular among students and office workers on the go alike due to its design, affordability and reliability. Borrowing design elements from their high end Envy line of laptops gives you that premium feel.
Inside the laptop are AMD A12 processors, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal memory. While this doesn't seem like much, the Pavilion series can be easily upgraded with Kaby Lake Intel Core i7 CPUs while adding entry level graphics from both Nvidia Geforce and AMD Radeon, memory can also be upgraded to a 512GB SSD plus an 2TB hard drive. The only drawbacks are that the lower end Pavilion setups don't come with HD screens and that it suffers from viewing angles like older LCD screens that will have you purchase an IPS panel.Why I like this one so much is that you use this laptop however you like and it showcases this laptop's versatility.
Priced between $500 - $700 the HP Pavilion 17 is generous for its price and is great value for money.Read full review Hide full review
