Expert Reviews

Well, as the subtitle says, I see no good reason to purchase this laptop. HP have limited the cTDP to 15W, maybe to save in BOM (as more heat means more material or something) and it simply...

Very good battery performance
Very modern and slick looks
Good performance for general use that doesn't require heavy lifting like gaming
Relatively good speakers in this price range
Keyboard could be worse (like in the Acer 5)
No USB 3.1, no DisplayPort
Only one Sata connection port
Keyboard is not bad, but average at best
Screen's cassis shape might result in some wearing
Expensive upgrades
