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


The HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 offers Windows 8 bargain hunters a slim design and adequate performance, but short battery life.

Slim and lightweight chassis; Fast boot time; Runs cool; Fairly loud Altec Lansing speakers

Short battery life; Inconsistent Windows 8 gesture performance; Below-average graphics

Click to EnlargePriced at $474, the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 delivers Ultrabook-like portability along with pretty good sound for the price. You also get a good selection of ports (including Ethernet), a zippy boot time and a cool-running...
