HP/DELL DESKTOP LAPTOP

HP/DELL DESKTOP LAPTOP

If you want business capability, you have both the HP EliteBook 8460p and the Dell Latitude E6430 ATG to choose from. Both offer first-class performance with a dash of rugged construction thrown in for those whose work takes them out of the office. The Latitude E6430 ATG holds the Editors' Choice crown, but the EliteBook 8460p offers similar capabilities and less intense ruggedization for half the price.

If you want portability, HP's line of ultrabooks boasts several of the best to come through the labs, like the stylish HP Envy 4-1043cl, the glass-covered HP Envy 14 Spectre, or the business-minded HP Folio 13-1020us (another Editors' Choice winner). But while HP has made a strong play in the ultrabook category, Dell has continued to churn out excellent desktop replacements, like the Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition (7520) and the Dell XPS 15 (Summer 2012).No matter what you're looking for in a laptop, HP and Dell have divided up the pie rather well, and between the two, there's something for almost everyone.
