Recommendations are independently chosen by Reviewed’s editors. Purchases you make through our links may earn us a commission.

Each year at Reviewed, we test hundreds, if not thousands of tech products. One brand that we can count on to be a consistent performer is HP, who makes some of the best laptops on the market, hands down. Whether we're comparing the best machines for gaming, affordability, students—you name it—HP does it and does it well. It doesn't stop at laptops, either: The tech company also manufactures incredible printers, monitors, and recently announced it would be acquiring gaming peripheral company HyperX (another top-performing brand). While there's tons of products to shop from on its site, ahead, we've compiled the top 10 that hold a special place in our hearts (read: a ranking in our Best Right Now series).

1. HP Envy x360 laptop

We can't say enough good thing about this laptop.

With a beautiful display, speedy processor options, and a bargain price point that's well under $1,000, the HP Envy x360 is one of our favorite affordable laptops laptops for students or professionals seeking a portable-yet-powerful machine. It's got a 2-in-1 hinge that lets you transform it from a traditional 13-inch laptop to a tablet or easel—you can even prop it up like a tent. We loved its well-designed keyboard, and the Ryzen 5 (4500U) six-core processor held up well in during testing, even when compared against intel's more high-end processors. Its eight-plus hour battery life certainly doesn't hurt, either.

2. HP Omen X 2S laptop

Gamers, meet your match.

The OMEN X 2S laptop outperformed all other gaming laptops we tested this year to be crowned the best on the market. We loved its innovative design that features a second screen built into its base—essentially a mini second monitor—while up top, its 1080p, 144Hz display blew us away. Its powerful Intel i7-9750H processor and ultra-fast GPUs also mean it can run most any game on high or ultra settings. You'll have to pay a premium for it, but for those who prioritize a seamless gaming experience (or unbeatable performance overall), it's the best money can buy. (Note: the model we tested is not currently sold at HP but the 15-dg0026nr Studio edition, which has a 4K screen, is available.)

The Tango has you covered for any and all printing needs.

If you're searching for a worthwhile addition to your home office setup, look no further than the HP Tango X—a sleek, Alexa-enabled printer that easily connects to your smart devices and can print on command via voice control. In our review of this high-tech gadget, our smart home expert noted that it's "as beautiful as it is functional," and praised its intuitive design and efficient printing speed. To top it all off, it can even order its own ink. Fancy, right?

Consider the HP Elite Dragonfly G2, which seriously impressed us in testing with its all-day battery life, high-speed performance, and snappy keyboard that we described as "a dream to use" in our review. Add to that its array of USB-A, USB-C, and HDMI ports as well as its built-in Tile tracking, and you've got what we dubbed a "perfect business laptop."

We love the Spectre's stunning design.

For those who prefer the finer things in life, the HP Spectre 14t checks all the boxes. Its among the fastest models we've ever tested, and the runner-up in our ranking of the best 2-in-1 laptops. What makes it so great? The bezel-free 3:2 screen, for starters, offers tons of viewing space, while its extremely fast Intel 11th-gen i5 processor can handle just about any task with ease. It also starts around $1,200—an incredibly reasonable price for the luxury computing experience it offers.

You deserve two screens.

Whether you want smooth motion for action games, a new perspective on your favorite videos, or simply something that will put less strain on your eyes, it's worth investing in a monitor, especially for remote work. Some of the best computer monitors under $200 are made by HP, and while our favorites aren't currently available on HP, their most highly rated monitor, the HP 23er 23-inch monitor, appears just as promising. More than 300 shoppers have granted it an average 4.6-star rating, praising its ultra-wide viewing position and vivid 1080p resolution in particular.

Chrome fans, this one's for you.

Chromebooks are an ideal choice for the google loyalist, providing easy access to Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Hangouts, Sheets, and more G Suite apps. As one of our favorite budget laptops, the HP Chromebook x360 has all the versatility one would look for at a budget-friendly price tag. In testing, we were fans of its bright, colorful display and nice blend of features and functionality, deeming it a solid option for students or those who prefer casual computing.

8. HP 14z-fq000 laptop (formerly Stream 14)

This basic laptop won't break the bank.

In terms of best bang for your buck, we recommend the HP Stream 14 for casual users who don't require any extra bells or whistles. As our laptop expert puts it, the Stream 14 contains "no frills...just a comfortable keyboard, a decent trackpad, and a solid construction." Designed for basic web browsing and streaming, you won't get much storage space or memory, but in turn, you won't have to shell out more than $300 paying for durable, trusty, and extremely affordable machine. (Although discontinued on the HP site, the Stream 14 has been replaced by the HP 14z-fq000, which shares the same specs.)

This laser printer is the best we've ever tested.

The HP Officejet Pro 8035 was chosen as our best overall printer thanks to its easy-to-use interface, automatic alignment checks, and ability to flawlessly print both documents and photos on any weight paper. We also appreciated its fast connection to the HP Smart app. It's able print up to 20 pages per minute with a crisp, 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution.

10. HP X4000 wireless mouse

Mousepads are so last year.

If your trackpad is sticky or just not as smooth as you'd like it, chances are, you'd probably be happier with a wireless mouse that will allow you to fly your cursor around with ease. We recommend the HP x4000, which we named our best value pick for wireless mice, as it worked seamlessly on a variety of surfaces, felt comfortable to hold and was easy to maneuver. It also boasts a whopping 30-month long battery life (two-and-a-half years!), before you'd have to replace its AA batteries.
