This is a shame, as its battery life was fairly decent for a budget laptop. It lasted 5 hours and 44 minutes in our light use test with the screen set to half brightness. It's not the best score we've seen from a cheap ultraportable, but it's much more in line with what we've normally expect to see from a budget laptop. The HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11-e030sa is an appealing laptop that's great for taking on the go, but when the superior Asus X200CA costs £30 less, even its good looks and longer battery life aren’t quite enough to win us over.

50% HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11
Source: Computer Shopper English
Touch-screen-equipped Windows 8 laptops have been engaged in a limbo contest for some time now. This 11.6-inch laptop won't break the bank at $399 or thereabouts, and offers the full Windows 8 experience with a responsive touch screen and comfortable keyboard. But slow performance and a dim screen hold it back.

The HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11 would make a good buy for students on a tight budget, but not so good for business users needing more power. If we were making the decisions at HP, we would have left the touch capabilities out and spent the money on either a faster processor, or a better quality screen. As a result of the poor performance, we find it hard to recommend the TouchSmart. We'd suggest saving your cash, waiting a little longer and choosing something like the Asus Vivobook S200. It's a similar size, but offers much better performance, for just a little more money.
