OK, so you want a laptop that’s light and easy to carry around with you, rather than having to lug around a beast of a machine. But at the same time, you want to able to rely on it, all day long. We hear you.

HP has you covered. The HP Stream is the ideal choice for anyone looking to upgrade both the performance and stylishness of their current laptop.

It’s thin and light, packing away easily. At less than 17mm thin, weighing just over a kilo and with an 11.6” display, it’s slight enough to fit on any café table.

But that doesn’t mean it skimps on performance. With an Intel® Celeron™ dual-core processor to power it, plus 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage, it offers everything you need in a personal computer.

And here’s the best bit: all that performance, plus a HD-ready display, packed away in that tiny little unit… yet it still manages to deliver a whopping 13 hours of battery to keep it going all day long!


For the ultimate all-rounder for work and play

It’s not hard to see how this great bit of kit will enhance your life. Whether you need a solid laptop to tackle work, streaming, internet browsing or anything in between, you’ll find it in this HP Pavilion with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage and an Intel® Core™ i3-8145U Dual-core processor.

With that much raw power going on underneath, buffering will be a thing of the past. Even the meatiest files, photos and videos will open straight away – and there’s an SD card slot so you can easily access content from other devices too.

And to help you get around, it comes installed with the latest Windows 10 operating system – so simple and easy to use, meaning you can jump right in as soon as you get it out the box.

Headed out and about? Leave the charging cable at home. With 11 hours of battery, you can work and play all day long without worrying you’ll run out of juice.

Finally, whether you’re building a PowerPoint presentation, catching up on your favourite streaming TV or just browsing memes on social media, the Full HD display will bring everything to life like never before.


For pure speed and performance and everything you need from a laptop

Sometimes you just want raw power, awesome speed and top-quality performance in a laptop that’s still compact enough to carry away in your backpack. And for that, HP has got just the thing…

The HP Envy i5 laptop boasts a staggering Intel® Quad-core processor with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, plus an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics card and a Full HD 1920 x 1080p display with WLED-backlighting.

It even has a touchscreen to make it easier to use (don’t worry, it’s not fragile – it’s made with resilient Gorilla Glass).

And yet, it still manages to produce over 15 hours of battery life, thanks to its 4-cell lithium-ion polymer (mouthful, right?) battery.

This is truly the ultimate high-performance laptop from HP – the perfect choice if you’re looking to upgrade, whether for work, gaming or simply enjoying streaming content online.

Plus… Windows 10. Enhanced security features. A built-in Privacy Camera Kill Switch. A fingerprint reader so you can do away with passwords. And a list of other incredible features too long to reel off here. It just keeps getting better.
