It is worth considering alternative laptops which also have a front camera including the X131e[pl_1492167_price], or the L540[pl_2616364_price] both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The HP 8470p does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the 8470p which have a full-size keyboard.
We think you might also be interested in other notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the X131e[pl_1492167_price], or the L540[pl_2052780_price] both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs with a touch sensitive screen and we think the Lenovo ThinkPad T440[plb_2585666_price] is also worth considering.
Only Windows 8 Recovery Operating System
This laptop has a Windows 8 Pro recovery operating system, which is typical of many laptops of a similar age and type to it.

Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP 8470p has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this type and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Inspiron 17R[pl_1412334_price], or the Latitude E6430[pl_1458173_price] both from DELL or the HP 8470p[plb_1457901_price].
If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Inspiron 17[pl_2253142_price] (750GB and cheaper), the Inspiron 15[pl_2300892_price] (750GB and cheaper), or the Inspiron 17 7737[pl_2045961_price] (750GB and cheaper) all from DELL.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the HP 8470p has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that came out more than two years ago.
We compared all the other 4GB internal memory notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Inspiron 17R[pl_1412334_price], and the Latitude E5530[pl_1412904_price] both from DELL is also worth considering.
If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL Inspiron 15[plb_2300892_price] (6GB and cheaper).

The HP 8470p has a fairly typical weight (2.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 8470p.
