Review HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 Notebook


Ultra-affordable, semi-ultraportable. Hewlett-Packard's latest 15

Lightweight for a 15-inch notebook; Relatively inexpensive; Stays cool even under load; Low operating noise; Solid, comfortable touchpad operation; Good port selection for its class

Flimsy, cheap-feeling construction; Poor keyboard with significant flex; High-gloss screen leads to obtrusive reflections; Disappointing performance, especially gaming; Middling battery life for its category

How cool the notebook manages to stay under load, and how quiet it remains in spite of this is impressive.

HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 Review and Ratings


HP's latest AMD-based Sleekbook is slim, and its 15-inch screen is attractive. But performance and battery life lag so far behind Intel-based alternatives that don't cost much more that it's hard to recommend.

Thin and relatively light for a 15-inch laptop ; Nice screen for a budget-priced system ; Available in three colors

Performance and battery life disappoint ; No touch screen ; Cheap, glossy plastic exterior ; Awkward power plug

HP's Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 sports a nice, large screen for an economy notebook, as well as a pleasingly thin profile. But its budget-laptop aesthetics, combined with disappointingly short battery life and subpar productivity performance, make it...
