    If your budget is as flexible as it seems, you want an HP and your screen size is 12" then I guess the HP 2760p is your best bet. If screen quality and glare are important, just ask and others more knowledgeable about this model might advise about screen specifics.

    I think the 2740p is discontinued except from re-sellers anyway.

    You'd be getting a very solid machine. I've seen many glowing reviews on this forum for the now discontinued HP 2730p and 2740p.

    Hope it turns out for the best.
