18 Reasons For

HP Notebook PCs Have Good Reviews

Medium processor core notebook PCs produced by HP have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.

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.

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).

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).

Chart Edit

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).

6 Reasons Against

Pricey

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).

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Most comparable spec portable PCs that came out around the same time as the 15 do not have a touch sensitive screen. The HP 15 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.

It is worth also looking at alternative portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the DELL XPS 13 (£1,399.00), or the Samsung ATIV Book 9 (£1,303.46) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Three Battery Cells

Chart Edit

Only One USB 3.0 Port

The HP 15 is a one USB 3.0 port notebook PC. Most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec have between one and four USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Only 4 Bluetooth Version

Chart Edit

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).

Read more Less Chart Edit

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.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Weight

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.
