A perfect laptop for the techies
Overall User Rating (4 Out of 5 based on 136 ratings)
Overall: Ok I bought this laptop 2 weeks ago so here I am writing a review about the product.
Design : Well in 46K you can't expect a classy design though its a lightweight and thin laptop.It doesn't have any metal used in its structure.Its made of plastic but it have a good build quality.It doesn't have lights on the keyboard and touchpad is also not big.Though you can use both of them without facing any problem.
Performance : Well this is the place where it can beat many laptops of its kind.The 5th Gen i5 processor & 8 GB of RAM makes it a high performance laptop along with the R5 M330 2 GB Graphics.I am using this laptop with Windows 10 for past few days but faced no lagging related issues.The data processing speed is good enough upto 40mbps.
Gaming : This comes with AMD R5 M330 graphics which is not the best Graphics available from AMD indeed its a low end graphics from AMD.But surprisingly it can run heavy games like Far Cry 4,Battlefield 4 (I have tested them).I guess it is due to the 8 GB RAM of it.Though your AMD Graphics will stop working once you update this to Windows 10.(You have to download AMD Catalyst from AMD's official website to fix it as HP don't have the driver license from Microsoft yet).It doesn't have major heating issues while heavy gaming.Though you can't play high end games when it is being run in its battery.
Battery : I have tested that you can use this laptop upto 3 hours in its battery.Though you can extend it upto 4 hours using power saver mode.
