13 Reasons Against

Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port

The HP 15 is a one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port notebook PC. Most of the other laptops that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 200MHz and 650MHz. At only 200 megahertz, the HP 15 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 15.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 15 is 4GB and the biggest is 32GB. The HP 15 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors (only 16 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short Battery Life

With a battery life of only 4.5 hours, the HP 15 has a quite short battery life compared to most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 15. The shortest battery life of laptops of a comparable age and type to the 15 is 2h, the longest is 4,400h, and the average battery life is 24h.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4.5h battery life laptops currently available including the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1481808_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a portable PC with a longer battery life then you might also want to consider the B50-45[pl_3099410_price] (5h), or the G70-70[pl_3375260_price] (5h) both from Lenovo or the Asus Zenbook UX305[plb_2964593_price] (7h) which is also cheaper.

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on laptops 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 alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Vostro 3560[pl_1412318_price], or the Inspiron 15[pl_2360347_price] both from DELL.

If you want a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the EliteBook 840 G1[pl_1620817_price] (SSD), or the ProBook 650 G1[pl_2059085_price] (SSD) both from HP which is also cheaper.

We compared all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed laptops to this laptop and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo S510p[plb_1609701_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the Asus X451CA[plb_3015235_price] (1.8GHz), or the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_2843838_price] (1.9GHz) which is also cheaper.
