8 Reasons For

A Top Selling Laptop

The Pavilion 15 is a popular choice of portable PC.

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

On average HP many processor core portable PCs have good reviews compared to other brands as do all portable PCs produced by HP.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The HP Pavilion 15 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other laptops of a comparable age and type to the Pavilion 15.

Other notebook PCs with a full-size keyboard currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo G50-30[plb_3247703_price], or the Asus X553MA[plb_2768436_price].

It is worth also looking at alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the DELL Latitude 11 3160[plb_2985893_price].

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The Pavilion 15 has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Pavilion 15. The total storage capacity of many processor core portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Pavilion 15 range from 32GB to 2.2TB.

If this portable PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Satellite P50T-B[plb_2803100_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

Has a Front Camera

The Pavilion 15 has a front camera. Most of the other many processor core portable PCs that have been around for more than a year also have a front camera.

We compared all the other notebook PCs with a front camera to this portable PC and we think the Aspire E5[pl_2773223_price], and the Aspire ES1-711[pl_2971844_price] both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a front camera including the Lenovo 11e[plb_2936284_price].

802.11n WiFi Standard

This notebook PC has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on many processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Medion AKOYA E7225[plb_2545004_price], and the Asus X553MA[plb_2768436_price] is also worth considering.
