    HP Compaq 6715b 2.2Ghz review

    7  

    HP's Compaq range is targeted directly at corporate users. The nondescript grey design and solid build quality of the Compaq 6715b (£633 inc. VAT) make it a reliable business tool. Battery life and performance fail to excel, however, leading to limited usability.

    HP is currently the number one laptop seller in the world, largely due to an impressive line-up of business machines. For consumers it offers the Pavilion range, which mixes multimedia features and cutting-edge functions at realistic prices.

    Its original Eee PC sub-notebook, announced just under a year ago, has leapt off shelves - watched with great interest by a growing number of notebook manufacturers. One year of development on, we're starting to see these manufacturers' attempts to match the Eee PC's portability, low price point and general loveableness come to fruition.

    The notion of a Tablet PC for home use is something that is still in its infancy, largely due to tablets being seen as business tools and the fact there are very few consumer applications for the Tablet PC.

    HP currently sells more laptops world-wide than any other manufacturer. A large part of this success has been placed on its new-look consumer range, of which the HP Pavilion dv6750ea (£549 inc. VAT) is the latest iteration.

    HP’s Compaq range is synonymous with usability and strength for the business user, and the Compaq 8710p (£1469 inc. VAT) continues this trend. Where its rivals are aimed at the regular home user, the 8710p is very much a corporate workhorse.

    The HP Compaq 2710p is an ultraportable Tablet PC that impressed us last time we tested it. Despite not being the most powerful of machines, its strong battery life, eye-catching design and great usability continue to impress.

    Mobile computing is changing and this is no more evident than in Tablet PC devices. Advances in battery technology and the controlling of voltages have had such an effect that machines are lighter than ever. The HP Compaq 2710p (£1267 inc. VAT) is a great example of this - with a highly usable but lightweight design, this is an impressive piece of kit.

    HP's Compaq range is designed primarily for corporate use, and the Compaq 2510p (£1150 inc. VAT) is an affordably priced ultraportable ideal for mass roll-out. While its performance and mobility are basic, the excellent build quality and usability make strong selling points.

    HP is currently the number one laptop seller in the world and has achieved this position by providing a range of machines at key price points. The HP Pavilion G6032EA (£449 inc. VAT) is aimed at entry-level users and has a plastic chassis that feels surprisingly robust and sturdy for a machine at this price point.

    While HP's Pavilion range targets consumers, the Compaq brand is for corporate users. Although the Compaq 6510b (£798 inc. VAT) lacks style and power, its strong battery life, security features and solid build quality are ideally suited to mobile business users.

    HP’s Pavilion HDX9095ea desktop replacement(£1699 inc. VAT) makes few concessions to mobility, weighing in at 7.3kg. It also features a truly distinctive design.

    From the moment you unpack the HP Pavilion HDX9095EA (£1699 inc. VAT) you get the feeling you're dealing with something a little different. The packaging is impressive, but the 20.1-inch laptop inside, referred to as 'The Dragon', is something else

    The only corporate laptop in this group test, the HP Compaq 6820s (£821 inc. VAT) takes a more conservative approach than its rivals. Despite decent performance and strong usability, the lack of any extra features makes it a tough sell, even for business users.

    HP's consumer Pavilion range is the polar opposite of its conservatively styled Compaq laptops. The Pavilion dv6358ea is a case in point and features HP's Imprint design with contour lines that span the chassis and give it a distinctive appearance

    HP has reinvented its consumer laptop line of late and the Pavilion dv9341eu (£729 inc. VAT) is the desktop replacement of the range. Sporting a 17-inch Super-TFT screen, you'll find this a bulky machine that looks great on a desktop, but has an overall weight of 3.7kg
