This is easily one of the best laptops that we have reviewed in the midrange price range (at least it was there at the time of this writing), and you are going to have a rough time finding another laptop that can match all of the features that the HP Pavilion dv4-5110us has to offer. Between its’ 2.5 GHz Intel i5 processor, 6 GB of RAM and 750 GB hard drive, you are looking a machine that is ready to take whatever you have to throw at it
The lack of a dedicated graphics card means that it isn’t the best choice for gaming, but it will still be able to handle games like World of Warcraft and Diablo 3 with ease.

Features that are lacking on the HP Pavilion dv4-5110us:
- No dedicated graphics card
- Heavier than an ultrabook (if you are also considering those, note that we recommend you read our HP ENVY 6-1010us Sleekbook 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black) Review)
- No Blu-Ray support
- No solid state drive
If you can overlook the features that this laptop does not have you will see that you are getting a lot of value for your money. HP’s build quality is notoriously good, and the keyboard feels fantastic. A lot of laptop manufacturers seem pretty intent on forcing full numeric keypads on their keyboards but, given the slightly smaller form size of this 14 inch laptop, I think they made the right choice in leaving it off. The keyboard is very comfortable to type on and, as you can see from the images above, it just looks terrific. In fact, that is one thing you might get from other reviews of this computer – this thing just looks polished and professional. It is definitely a head-turner.
Considering the best features of this laptop, such as the speed, portability and amazing battery life, it’s probably a fair assumption that you have checked out some ultrabooks, too. While those will be lighter and thinner, they will also be missing a CD or DVD drive. For many people this is still a very important component and, if you are looking at ultrabooks, make sure you are aware that most of them do not have a way for you to play one of those disc types.
