Reviews for the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11z-e000
The HP Pavilion Touchsmart 11z-e000 is ideal for users who want a touch-enabled display, but don't want to spend a lot of money. The only other comparable option at the sub $500 price point is the Asus Q200. The two devices match-up fairly evenly -- with a slight performance edge going to the Q200 -- but the Pavilion Touchsmart 11z's base model is listed at nearly $100 less.

HP's Pavilion 11 Touchsmart is a good model to consider if you're after a laptop that's small, yet well featured. It's not overly fast, but it has enough grunt for basic Web, communications, and multimedia tasks.

We'll close by saying that HP's Pavilion 11 Touchsmart is a fine little laptop if you're looking for something that can handle basic, everyday tasks, or even something that can be used as a media centre or sorts when connected to your TV. It felt a little sluggish sometimes when we used Web-based apps such as Google Docs, but for the most part it was a responsive unit that didn't leave us waiting too long when launching or switching applications.

Most people these days are looking for a laptop that doesn't break the bank, especially for those looking for a reliable, back to school laptop or one to buy for the upcoming holiday shopping season. The HP TouchSmart 11z gives you quite a bit in a small package for only $400, but are there any issues that hold it back?

The logical successor to the Pavilion dm1, the Pavilion TouchSmart 11 is a most attractive buy at its price. The excellent battery life and the responsive 11.6-inch touchscreen add to the compact and very portable design. This is a perfect laptop for someone buying one for the first time, or for someone who cares only about good battery life and doesn't mind a smaller screen.

The HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11z-e000 is tough to beat on price—you get a lot of computer for the money. Its closest rival in price—Dell’s Latitude 3330—costs $100 more, doesn’t have a touchscreen, and carries a smaller hard drive. The Dell is slightly faster and has a larger display, but I think the TouchSmart 11z is a better value in the long run.

The new HP Pavilion 11z doesn't impress in the way that the old Pavilion dm1z did a few years ago, not because this laptop is less capable, but because excellent low-cost tablets, laptops, and hybrids have raised expectations in the meantime.

As one of the only touch-screen notebooks under $400, the HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11z has plenty to offer students and other consumers looking for a basic portable notebook. Don't expect to do much in the way of multitasking, but the 11z is a small, attractive system good for Web browsing, email and light document editing.

The HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11z-e000 is a tiny 11.6 inch laptop that will easily fit into the smallest bags and budgets. It is light, weighing in at 1.5 kg. Despite the low price, it features a touchscreen. While it may be disappointing on bigger machines, the 1366x768 pixel resolution looks pretty good on such a tiny screen. It is also a rather good looking machine, belying its cheap price. The plastic body looks like premium brushed aluminum and it is built sturdily, which is a wonder since it is so thin and light. The battery life is great, and can easily last a full work day of moderate use.
Unfortunately all these good things are ruined by a few details. The keyboard has suffered a little, as HP reduced the size of the keys, resulting in a keyboard that is cramped and uncomfortable to use. This would be especially evident to those with larger fingers or hands. It is also slow. Very, very slow, due to the fact that it runs on the 1 GHz AMD A4-1250 with a 5400 rpm HDD. The Realtek RTL8188EE Wi-Fi adapter can only handle a maximum of 150 Mbps with a physical link or 100 Mbps otherwise. Overall though, this is a decent enough little machine, at a price that no other budget laptop can beat. Best used by students with small fingers for light word processing and web browsing.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
