17 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Notebook PCs

We checked 3,456 owner and expert reviews for HP portable PCs and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core notebook PCs range.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of portable PCs that came out around the same time as the 8470p is 2.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of 2.7 gigahertz, the HP 8470p has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

We compared all the other 2.7GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs to this laptop and we think the DELL Latitude E6430 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the X230 (2.8GHz), the T440p (2.8GHz), or the L540 (£668.30) (2.8GHz) all from Lenovo.

8 Reasons Against

Only One PCI Express Lane (max)

Most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max), including the HP 8470p which has one PCI Express lane (max).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec have a full-size keyboard, however the HP 8470p does not have a full-size keyboard.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the HP EliteBook 8470p, the Lenovo ThinkPad L540, or the DELL Latitude E5530 (£591.60) is also worth considering.

HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Inspiron 17R (£569.03), or the Inspiron 15 both from DELL or the Asus PU551LA which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo X230 (SSD), the HP EliteBook 840 (£1,514.30) (SSD), or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 (SSD).

Like most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been around for more than two years, the HP 8470p does not have a touch sensitive screen.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen to this laptop and we think the DELL Inspiron 15 7537 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Thick

With a height of 34 millimeters, the HP 8470p is quite thick compared to most of the other laptops that are a comparable age to the 8470p. The heights of notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 2.4mm to 300mm.

6 Other reasons to consider the HP 8470p

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this notebook PC was released.

Intel Core I5-3xxx Processor Family

The HP 8470p has an Intel Core i5-3xxx processor family which is better than most laptops of a similar type and age to it. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to it have an Intel Core i5 processor family.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

The HP 8470p has a fairly standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the 8470p.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 500GB total storage capacity portable PCs currently available including the Probook 650 (£445.00), or the ProBook 4540s (£479.99) both from HP or the DELL Inspiron 17R (£569.03) which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Inspiron 15 (750GB), the Inspiron 15 3521 (750GB), or the Inspiron 17 7737 (750GB) all from DELL which is also cheaper.

We compared all the other 4GB internal memory laptops to this notebook PC and we think the Probook 650 (£445.00), and the ProBook 4540s (£479.99) both from HP or the DELL Inspiron 17R (£569.03) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this notebook PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Inspiron 15 3521 (6GB and cheaper), or the Inspiron 15 3521 (6GB and cheaper) both from DELL or the Asus X75A (£462.59) (6GB and cheaper).
