6 Reasons For

HP Laptops Have Good Reviews

HP is one of the superior portable PC manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and HP also has good ratings for its many processor cores laptops.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other many processor cores laptops that are a similar age to the Pavilion 15, the Pavilion 15 has a full-size keyboard.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Pavilion 15 has a front camera, as do most of the other many processor cores laptops that are a comparable age to the Pavilion 15.

There are a number of other portable PCs with a front camera currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision M3800.

802.11n Wi-Fi Standards

This notebook PC has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n wi-Fi standards, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This notebook PC has a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly found discrete graphics memory type on many processor cores laptops that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rates

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Very Short Battery Life (max)

The average battery life (max) of notebook PCs of this age and spec is 7.1h. At only 4.7 hours, the Pavilion 15 has a quite short battery life (max) compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that were released around the same time as the Pavilion 15.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Media

This notebook PC has an HDD storage media, which is typical of many many processor cores laptops that have been available 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.

We compared this portable PC to all the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think because of it's better review score, the HP 255 G3 is also worth considering.
