6 Things We Like, 3 Things We Don't About The HP Revolve 810 G1

Rear Entry

The absolute worst place to locate ports on a laptop is the rear edge, yet that's exactly where HP put most of Revolve's ports. In our view, the backside is the least convenient place for plugging and unplugging cables and it's the most vulnerable location for stress. Even worse, Revolve's long, straight power connector protrudes like a kick-me sign from the unit's rear edge. The cable itself appears rugged enough, but it's the connector and motherboard that usually get concussed. We prefer side-only connections on laptops; they're easier to use and less problematic.
