HP Compaq branded notebooks are known to be cheap but usually do compromise on the performance and battery life. The HP Compaq Presario CQ57-371EA packs a dual core AMD processor E-450 which is an AMD Fusion based platform that promises an integrated graphics that can handle full HD playback and a good battery life all for under £300.
With all ultrabooks stealing all the hype in the portable notebook market it is easy to forget that not everyone want to spend £1000 on a 13 inch notebook. For some a notebook that is 5oo g heavier, 10 mm thicker but costing almost half less is a more compelling offer and this is where HP ProBook 4330s comes in.
We have posted as much info on the Alienware M11x 11.6 inch Gaming Notebook as other websites posted on the Apple iPad.

Joanna Stern at Engadget posted a review on the Sony Vaio Z VPCZ114GX/S 13.1 inch Portable Notebook and she thinks the Sony VAIO Z is a wonderful portable notebook to use which it should be for the $2,000 RRP but somehow wonders if there still is a place in the market for highly priced portable when there are so many cheaper CULV powered notebooks out there that are as sexy and portable as the Sony Vaio Z VPCZ114GX/S while offering even longer battery life.
Julian Prokaza at Cnet posted a review of HP Pavilion dv3-2055ea 13.3 Laptop. He thinks that the The HP Pavilion dv3-2055ea is a well-specified 13.3-inch laptop that doesn’t sacrifice usability for the sake of portability. Middling 3D graphics performance makes it a capable all-rounder rather than true multimedia powerhouse, but it’s otherwise well-specified, and well worth a look.
