What Do We like
This HP laptop features a standard 15.6 inches display with a 1080P (1920×1080) resolution and a refresh rate of 60Hz. This is a decent screen, and the high contrast ratio will enhance your visual experience. The body to screen ratio is like it should be and brightness, contrast is pretty good.
The lightweight HP laptop weighs around 1.77 kilograms. You will hardly feel anything on your back while traveling with this device. Slip it in a bag, and you are good to go.
Battery back up
The battery cell composition of this laptop is lithium-ion made. The battery back up of this laptop is quite decent. This will provide you with up to 13 hours of battery back up on moderate usage or work purposes. In video playback mode, it will last up to 8 hours (depending on the screen brightness).
The Intel Core i5-8265U 8th generation processor of 1.60GHz is very fast and lets you execute commands instantly. The 8GB DDR4 memory will make sure when you run the laptop for long hours, it does not start lagging, and you can create a virtual workspace to work smoothly.
1TB hard drive of 5400rpm is very spacious and of decent quality along with the top-notch display quality. This is perfect for work and entertainment purposes.
What We Don’t Like
The speaker quality of this HP device is not quite what was expected from it. The loudness is not enough, and sound clarity is not there. You cannot watch a movie depending on the laptop’s speakers as they are very low.
At this price range, many other companies are providing laptops with dedicated graphics memory for better performance. Without it, you are unable to work on image or movie editing software such as photoshop, premiere pro, etc.
This lightweight HP laptop is decent from every aspect and also looks premium. The silver color shines, and the specifications make it compatible and powerful to execute every task within a blink of an eye. This also comes with a 1-year warranty from the date of purchase. If you are looking for the right product within a mid-range budget, then this is the perfect choice for you.
