Review HP Pavilion 15-n005sg Notebook


Long-lasting and economic. A slim laptop featuring a Haswell processor for 499 Euros (~$671) doesn't sound bad at all. Our test report reveals whether the Pavilion can stand out from the innumerable contenders. ...

Good application performance; Decent battery runtimes; Low power consumption; Quiet operation; Slim appearance

12 month warranty only; A slightly too dark screen w/ bluish cast

Hewlett Packard only includes a one-year warranty while the competition often offers two years.

HP 15-d008TU notebook Review


The HP 15 is a fairly competent laptop, at a very affordable price tag. Meant for someone who wants a machine for basic tasks, with a very good battery life. The 15.6-inch screen is one of the best in the category. Featuring a good keyboard and...

Excellent battery life, Well built, Crisp display, Precise keyboard

HP Pavilion 15-n207tu Review


The HP Pavilion 15-n207tu is a well-rounded, albeit basic laptop with the bare essentials required to keep a user happy. The device does have a good screen and great audio, not to mention the decent battery life. However, it's underpowered at this...

HP Pavilion 15z Sleekbook


Slim and light for a 15" laptop (especially at this low price), very good Altec Lansing speakers

Shiny plastic loves fingerprints, weak battery life, mushy keyboard

HP set out with a challenge: make a budget notebook that's both thin and light. And that's exactly what the HP Pavilion 15z Sleekbook is: it starts at less than $500, weighs less than 5 pounds and it's relatively slim at 0.83". It's sufficient for web,...

HP Pavilion 15 review


The quintessential learning laptop lives on

Affordable price ; Thinner and lighter ; Tons of options

Shallow, squishy keyboard ; All-plastic frame

Hefty and ready to haul heaps of coursework, HP's Pavilion revision makes for a compelling value that carries the household name well.

HP Pavilion 15 (15-bc250na) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Pavilion 15 (15-bc250na) is pitched by some retailers as a gaming machine, which provides a weight of expectations in the mind of laptop users. However, in our testing we weren't sure that this was really the best use of the laptop's...

HP Pavilion 15 TouchSmart (n232sa) review


The size and weight of the Pavilion 15 TouchSmart suggest that it's more intended as a desktop replacement system for use at home or in the office. However, its all-round performance, combined with an attractive screen and optical drive, provide very...

On the plus end, you will locate piles of features that make you go crazy for it! Some of the gratifying features are HP TrueVision HD Webcam with Integrated dual array digital microphone, 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0, 1 HDMI and Multi-Format digital Media...

Fire Wire and eSATA like intuitive ports are missing

With such price tag, this new HP Pavilion 15-b001TU offers the latest in onboard hardware and software. But what could make you more excited for this laptop are the small intricate details that the designers have taken care of such as sharing headphone...
