One of the longtime leaders when it comes to the best business laptops is Hewlett-Packard – and the HP Pavilion series is still one of the bestselling laptops on Amazon. The HP Pavilion DV4-2161NR in particular ranks highly on Amazon, and it’s a good laptop for business travelers as well as home use.
The HP Pavilion DV4-2161NR isn’t the cheapest laptop you can buy, but it’s definitely an excellent price – especially for what you get. All laptops are certainly portable, but this HP has two features that help make it even more travel-friendly. First, its smaller screen size makes the overall size of the laptop easier to pack into just about any bag. Second, this laptop has the added benefit of being able to remove the DVD drive if you don’t need it on your trip to make the computer even lighter weight.

Although there are many perks associated with the Pavilion DV4-2161NR, the biggest drawback is that the battery life is relatively short. If you tend to use your laptops often when you’re not near a power source, this could be a major headache.
