Editor's note: In January 2018, HP announced a voluntary worldwide safety recall of several flagship laptops due to issues with internal batteries overheating. Affected batteries were shipped between December 2015 and December 2016 in a variety of laptop models, including the HP Zbook Studio G4, which is recommended here. For a full list of potentially affected machines and how to take advantage of this recall visit HP now. 

HP's business-focused laptops are among the most beautifully-designed work machines on the market, which is sure to make them a hit with users who are impressed by devices that have a luxury look and feel. Our Best Overall HP pick is affordable enough for small businesses and powerful enough for most professional users, while our Best 2-in-1 and Best Workstation are higher end and therefore more geared toward power users.

Whether you're looking for a lightweight travel companion or a beastly workstation, HP makes some excellent laptops that should meet your needs. These are our top picks for 2018.

How We Evaluate Laptops

Every laptop on our list has been fully reviewed on our sister site, We use precise, repeatable testing procedures to evaluate products and help our readers make informed buying decisions. Our methods include industry-standard synthetic benchmark tests, including the Geekbench 3 performance test and the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited graphics test.

We also use several in-house tests to assess each laptop's battery life, file-transfer speed and more. We then interpret those results from a business and IT professional's point of view to determine which laptops make the most sense for your company.
