64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This portable PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on laptops of this age and type.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most laptops of this age and type have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP 15 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
The HP 15 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1366 x 768 pixels laptop, which is the most common display resolution.
This laptop's display resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is actually the best display resolution amongst all medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the 15.
Amongst similar types of laptop the worst display resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of notebook PCs that are a similar age to the 15 is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz. The HP 15 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (2.4 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.
We compared this portable PC to all the other 2.4GHz processor clock speed portable PCs and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo G500 (£239.00), the Samsung ATIV Book 9 (£1,303.46), and the DELL XPS 13 (£1,399.00) is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a laptop with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Asus UX303UB (2.5GHz and higher rated) or the HP EliteBook 820 (2.6GHz and cheaper).
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The HP 15 has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year. The total storage capacity of laptops of this age and type range from 16GB to 2TB.

The HP 15 supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. This portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this laptop supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops that were released around the same time as the 15 ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
Like most of the other laptops that were launched more than a year ago, the HP 15 has a full-size keyboard.
It may also be worth considering one of the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard currently available including the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,427.56) which is cheaper.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this portable PC and we think the Samsung ATIV Book 9 (£1,500.96), or the Lenovo T450 (£1,073.00) is also worth considering.
Intel Core I7-5xxx Processor Family
The HP 15 has an Intel Core i7-5xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago. Similar spec laptops that have been around for a comparable time to the 15 processor families range from AMD E (worst) to Intel Core i7-4xxx (best).
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the 15, the HP 15 has a front camera.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP ZBook 15 (£1,468.11), or the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,427.56).
There are a number of alternative laptops which also have a front camera which you might want to consider including the Samsung ATIV Book 9 (£1,500.96).
802.11n WiFi Standard
This portable PC has an 802.11a|802.11ac|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many comparable spec portable PCs that were released around the same time as it.
Very Fast Hard Drive Speed
The average hard drive speed of notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the 15 is 5,800 RPM. At 7,200 revolutions per minute, the HP 15 has a very fast hard drive speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP 15 has a quite big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to the 15. The smallest hard drive capacity of similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the 15 is 5GB and the biggest is 2TB.

6 Reasons Against
The price range of notebook PCs of this spec and age is from £149 to £3,405. We think that this portable PC looks expensive compared to other notebook PCs of this spec and age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many notebook PCs of this type and age. 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 notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo G500 (£239.00), or the HP EliteBook 820.
If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,427.56) (SSD and cheaper), or the Lenovo X250 (£420.00) (SSD and cheaper).

4 Other reasons to consider the HP 15
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this notebook PC was released.
Average Internal Memory
The HP 15 has a pretty standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago.
We compared this portable PC to all the other 8GB internal memory portable PCs and we think the Samsung ATIV Book 9 (£1,303.46), and the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£870.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this notebook PC internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£1,149.00) (12GB and cheaper).
Average Screen Size
The HP 15 has a pretty average screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other portable PCs that are a comparable age to the 15.
We compared all the other 15.6" notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,427.56), and the Lenovo G500 (£239.00) is also worth considering.
+2 Other reasons
With a weight of 1.9 kilograms, the HP 15 has a pretty standard weight compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year.
We compared all the other 1.9kg heavy notebook PCs to this notebook PC and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP ZBook 15 (£1,468.11) is also worth considering.
If you are not concerned about having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,427.56) (1.8kg) which is also cheaper.
