Best laptop 2014 HP TouchSmart 11z Review

Best laptop 2014 HP TouchSmart 11z Review - When shopping for a budget notebook, you can usually kiss touch screens goodbye. But HP bucks that trend with the Pavilion TouchSmart 11z-e000, which has an AMD A4 processor, 320GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM and, yes, an 11-inch touch screen. All of this is packed into an attractive 3.4-lb. design that belies its price. But at just $399, what are you giving up?

Who says touch screens have to be expensive? For just $399, the 11.6-inch HP TouchSmart 11z provides a responsive touch screen that helps you make the most of Windows 8 / 8.1 in an attractive, 3.4-pound package. With more than 6 hours of battery life, this affordable portable will have you pinching and swiping for most of a day. 

Design  HP TouchSmart 11z

The TouchSmart 11z has a chic, smooth silver plastic lid with a chrome HP logo in the center. The notebook's silver sides line a brushed black metal keyboard deck with matte, black plastic keys on a bed of glossy plastic. Between its attractive design, thick and sturdy hinges, and its white LED indicators, the TouchSmart 11z rocks a classy, understated look despite the lack of aluminum.

Performance HP TouchSmart 11z

With a 1-GHz dual-core AMD A4-1250 processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 5,400 rpm 320GB hard drive, don't expect blistering performance from the TouchSmart 11z. While these specs are certainly enough to drive Windows 8, don't expect to multitask much. For instance, with Paint and Google Chrome open with six tabs, the gameplay in "Cut the Rope" was choppy at times.
Synthetic benchmarks, such as the general performance test PCMark 7, corroborated our real-world experiences. The TouchSmart 11z scored 1,081 on this test, not even coming close to the 3,817 category average. Both the Q200 and IdeaPad S405 -- with 2.1-GHz AMD A6-4455M and1.4-GHz Intel Core i3-2365M chips, respectively -- edged out this notebook with scores of 1,567 and 1,439.
On our OpenOffice Test, which matches 20,000 names and addresses, the 11z took a whopping 28 minutes and 28 seconds to complete the task. That's nearly five times as long as the average ultraportable (5:55). The IdeaPad S405 took 8:59, while the Q200 completed the test in 11:29.


On the LAPTOP File Transfer Test, which copies and pastes 4.97GB of multimedia files, the TouchSmart 11's hard drive took 4 minutes and 6 seconds for a transfer rate of 21 MBps. That's less than half the category average of 49 MBps, but on a par with the Q200 (21 MBps). The IdeaPad S405 boasted a slightly speedier 26 MBps.
Despite this sluggish performance, the TouchSmart 11z booted Windows 8 in 15 seconds, whereas the category average is 22 seconds. By comparison, the IdeaPad S405 took 35 seconds, while the Q200 booted in 23 seconds.

Graphics HP TouchSmart 11z

The AMD Radeon HD 8180 graphics chip within the TouchSmart 11z won't be able to handle much more than the average casual distraction. You'll get to enjoy spurts of "Cut the Rope" and "Bejeweled" (with nothing else running), but don't even think about anything more demanding.
On the 3DMark 11 benchmark, the TouchSmart 11z scored a paltry 364 -- that's 388 points lower than the category average (752). The IdeaPad S405 nabbed 554 points, though the Q200 was not tested on 3DMark 11.
This laptop ran "World of Warcraft" at an unplayable 22 frames per second at its native resolution and medium settings. However, the Q200 fared much worse, with just 12 fps at normal settings and 1366 x 768. The IdeaPad S405 registered a nearly playable 28 fps.

Battery Life HP TouchSmart 11z

HP promises up to 7 hours of battery life from the Hp TouchSmart 11z, and the notebook came close to meeting that claim. On the LAPTOP Battery Test (Web surfing via Wi-Fi at 40 percent brightness), the TouchSmart lasted 6 hours and 2 minutes. Not only is that time almost on a par with the 6:07 category average, it runs circles around the IdeaPad S405 (3:34) and Q200 (4:19).
