11 Reasons For

HP Notebook PCs Have Good Reviews

HP is one of the superior laptop manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and HP also has good reviews for its many processor core portable PCs.

Reasonably Priced

Some customers who reviewed the HP 15 mentioned that it was a bargain for the price. Two years ago Mr Baz wrote “Put it in the sink for a few minutes (in the hope it would cease working - sadly it didn't)Cons- Ghastly build quality I've used cheap basic cameras” in his review of this laptop but he scored the HP 15 20 out of 100.

Easy to Use

One person who reviewed this laptop concluded that it was easy to use. Amazon Customer wrote on Amazon two years ago “Simple to use.”.

Nice Design

One HP 15 reviewer who reviewed the HP 15 mentioned that it had a good case. G. Avery mentioned “The camera produces the worst photos I have ever taken on any camera ever.I didn't test it under water - the casing feels highly flimsy” in their review of the HP 15.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the 15, the HP 15 has a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available including the Pro[pl_2883382_price], or the Pro[pl_2864292_price] both from HP or the Asus N550JK[plb_2216149_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as the 15 is 32GB and the biggest is 2.2TB. The HP 15 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst laptops of this age.

We compared this laptop to all the other 1TB total storage capacity portable PCs and we think because of it's better review score, the Pavilion 15[pl_2363384_price], and the Pavilion 15[pl_2433111_price] both from HP or the Asus N550JK[plb_2216149_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Satellite L50D-C[pl_3017877_price] (1TB and higher rated), the Qosmio X70-B[pl_2765608_price] (1TB and higher rated), or the Satellite L50D-C[pl_3012452_price] (1TB and higher rated) all from Toshiba.

Has a Front Camera

The HP 15 has a front camera, as do most of the other many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as the 15.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs with a front camera currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus N550JK[plb_2216149_price], the Toshiba Satellite L50-C[plb_2992748_price], or the Lenovo G50-45[plb_2873766_price].

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

The HP 15 has a touch sensitive screen, unlike most of the other laptops of this type and age which do not have a touch sensitive screen.

Other notebook PCs with a touch sensitive screen currently available that you might also want to consider include the N550JK[pl_2216149_price], or the X200MA[pl_2316409_price] both from Asus or the HP Pro[plb_2883382_price] which has better reviews.

6 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

A few HP 15 owners mentioned in their reviews that the HP 15 was not good quality. Mr Baz wrote on Amazon two years ago “This has a distinct "airfix" feel to it- Very poor photo quality, as if you've smeared marmalade over the lens” in his review of this laptop. Mr Baz also said “The photo quality being dead honest wasn't a patch on the old ancient 4mp trust camera I had years ago”.

Not Robust

Several customers mentioned in their reviews that the product was not well made. G. Avery gave the product a rating of 1 stars and said in their HP 15 review on Amazon “I hope the camera I received is faulty because I'm shocked HP would bring out such a shoddy product”.

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 portable PC. Most of the other portable PCs of this age and spec have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Asus N550JK[plb_2216149_price], the Acer Aspire ES1-531[plb_2941757_price], or the Toshiba Satellite L50D-C[plb_2936877_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a laptop with a better storage medium then you might also want to look at the Asus N550JK[plb_2323968_price] (SSD), the DELL Precision M3800[plb_2915150_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo ThinkPad W541[plb_2850408_price] (SSD) which is also higher rated.
