  • The HP Pavilion Plus 14 could be the new best small laptop, taking over from the HP Pavilion Aero. (PC Magazine)

    Fully kitted out it has 16GB of RAM (enough for most users, though I'd like a 32GB option), 1TB of SSD, a 2880x1800 90Hz OLED display, and an Intel i7-12700H with 6 Performance cores and 8 Efficiency cores.

    I/O consists of two USB-C ports (not Thunderbolt, but they support DisplayPort video and charging), two USB-A ports, HDMI, microSD, and a headphone jack. For some reason they're all on the opposite side to my current Dell Inspiron 14 - well, except USB-A where both conveniently have one on each side.

    And it has the Four Essential Keys.

    That configuration will set you back $1029 in the US (on sale right now, normally $1229), or $2699 in Australia.

    Which... Wow. Shipping sure is expensive, huh?

    The reason I'd still consider it is that it's 30% faster than my current laptop single-threaded, and two and a half times as fast multi-threaded. It's faster than my full-size Inspiron 16, and a lot lighter.

    I previously asked why companies like HP, if they were only going to import one model of a laptop, didn't just choose the high-end model so that we weren't stuck with low-end specs. I guess this is why.
