What are the differences between the HP product series?

HP laptops are divided into different product series. From the Pavilion to the Omen, and from the ProBook to the Spectre; I explain the characteristics of each series below.

HP Pavilion

If you go for an HP Pavilion, then the choice is really yours. The Pavilion is available in almost all inch sizes. These reliable laptops all have an IPS panel, which ensures that the colors on the screen always look bright. There are also models with much more processing power, which you can use to edit videos in 4K, for example. The Pavilion x360 is a laptop and tablet in one.

** Pros of the HP Pavilion:**

  • Lots of choice
  • IPS panel
  • Sound

HP Envy

The metal casing of the HP Envy has a sleek look. This laptop can take a beating and will still look good. Combined with the low weight and its small dimensions, it's a laptop that is easy to carry. These laptops are suitable for multitasking and can use heavier software, such as photo editing programs. Are you looking for a 2-in-1? Go for the HP Envy x360.

Pros of the HP Envy:

  • Good for on the go use
  • Lots of processing power
  • Useful joint

HP Spectre

The HP Specter is a real eye-catcher. This laptop offers more than just a nice design, though. The Spectre is lightweight and very thin. You can easily use it to edit photos, for example. Especially when you go for the version with the OLED panel, you'll see the smallest details and your favorite films and series will pop on the screen. HP has a 2-in-1 version for this series too: the Specter x360.

**Pros of the HP Spectre: **

  • Attractive design
  • Easy to take with you
  • Suitable for heavy-duty tasks

HP ProBook

The HP ProBook is an interesting option for business use. These laptops were made with an eye on safety, build quality, and the option to extend the warranty via the manufacturer. You can easily log in with your fingerprint instead of a password, so no one else can access your laptop. In addition, the ProBook can take a beating, some of these notebooks were even tested by the military. This means that they are suitable to work on in extreme conditions, such as dusty environments.

Pros of the HP ProBook:

  • Business use
  • Safe and sturdy
  • Extendable warranty via HP

HP EliteBook

Like the Probook, the HP EliteBook is aimed at business users. If you're an office employee, freelancer, or travel from customer to customer, the EliteBook will suit you. These laptops have additional options for storing files securely, such as a TPM chip and a fingerprint reader. In addition to that, they have excellent build quality, and the EliteBook warranty is extendable via HP.

Pros of the HP EliteBook:

  • Business use
  • Safe and sturdy
  • Extendable warranty via HP

HP Omen

If you're a gamer, you go for the HP Omen. The black casing and the red keyboard backlight really make it look like a gaming laptop. Especially if you combine the Omen with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or 1070 video card. Thanks to these GPUs, you can play games on more than just ultra settings and you'll own your friends online. You can also step into the world of virtual reality.

Pros of the HP Omen:

  • Games on ultra
  • VR ready
  • Suitable for LAN parties

HP Stream

The HP Stream was primarily intended as a digital notebook. Choose the 11-inch or 14-inch model and take it to work or school with you to take notes and send emails. Do you want to write your notes by hand? Go for the x360 model, which can also be used as a tablet with a 360-degree rotating display.

** Pros of the HP Stream: **

  • Easy to take with you
  • Digital Notepad
  • Free Microsoft Office 365 (temporary)

HP Chromebook

It stores your work in the cloud, is less susceptible to viruses, and is energy-efficient. You can use your Google account to log in on the Chrome OS operating system and you only work with apps like Gmail and Google Docs or apps from the Google Play Store. The system needs little processing power, which makes the HP Chromebook energy-efficient, so you can easily go a day without charging your Chromebook. Note: Chrome OS doesn't support Windows programs.

Pros of the HP Chromebook:

  • Runs on Chrome OS
  • Reasonably priced
  • Energy-efficient
