We think you might also be interested in other notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the X131e[pl_1492167_price], or the L540[pl_2052780_price] both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.

Only HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on notebook PCs of this age and spec. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including cheaper laptops such as the DELL Inspiron 17R[plb_1412334_price], the HP ProBook 450[plb_2350793_price], or the Fujitsu LifeBook E754[plb_2475302_price].

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the DELL 13[plb_1304263_price] (SSD), the Toshiba Tecra A50[plb_2363547_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo ThinkPad X240[plb_2781600_price] (SSD).

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs with a touch sensitive screen and we think the Lenovo ThinkPad T440[plb_2585666_price] is also worth considering.

It was over three years ago when HP released the 8470p.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the HP 8470p has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Inspiron 17R[pl_1412334_price], or the Latitude E6430[pl_1458173_price] both from DELL or the HP 8470p[plb_1457901_price].

If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Inspiron 17[pl_2253142_price] (750GB and cheaper), the Inspiron 15[pl_2300892_price] (750GB and cheaper), or the Inspiron 17 7737[pl_2045961_price] (750GB and cheaper) all from DELL.

At 4 gigabytes, the HP 8470p has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 4GB internal memory notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Inspiron 17R[pl_1412334_price], and the Latitude E5530[pl_1412904_price] both from DELL is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL Inspiron 15[plb_2300892_price] (6GB and cheaper).

Portable PCs with a bigger screen size that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo Z51[plb_2964604_price] (15.6" and higher rated) or the L540[pl_1622998_price] (15" and cheaper), or the L540[pl_1623008_price] (15" and cheaper) both from Lenovo.
