We rarely see this these days. A device focused on usability, but without breaking the bank while offering one of the good 1080p 17-inch displays on the market. Yes, this is the HP 470 G8, and from what we learned in this review, it is a really big challenger to the IdeaPad 3 (17″, 2021), which currently holds the crown for an inexpensive 17-inch laptop. On the other hand, HP provides you with two SODIMM slots for memory upgrades, and an M.2 PCIe x4 slot for NVMe SSDs. And if you find yourself the mounting hardware, you can put a 2.5-inch SATA device as well. So, should you buy the HP 470 G8? Well, it still lacks some key features like an SD card reader or DisplayPort output on the USB Type-C port, but it is a big upgrade over last year’s model. If you happen to find a good deal on a Tiger Lake-equipped specimen, go for it!
