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.

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.
