At the heart of the HP 15-g005au, there is a 1.5GHz AMD quad-core A4 5000 APU processor. It works in tandem with a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which functions at 1,600MHz. For better management of intensive games and videos, it depends on the AMD Radeon HD 8330 graphics processor. It sails on Ubuntu OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
Armed with a HP TrueVision HD webcam and digital microphone, the HP 15-g005au enables you to enjoy high resolution video calls without any disturbance due to noise. The 500GB SATA hard disk running at 5,400rpm provides sufficient space for creating a library of files. You can also store files on disks and retrieve them when required thanks to the presence of the SuperMulti DVD burner. The dual stereo speakers provide rich multimedia experience.
Battery and Connectivity
The HP 15-g005au is packed with a 4 cell Li-ion battery which can deliver interruption free service for up to 4 hours. On the connectivity front, it comes with features like Ethernet port, HDMI out, one USB 3.0 slot, VGA port, WLAN and Bluetooth v4.0.
If you are looking for a laptop that comes at an affordable price and is suitable for handling basic computing tasks only, you can opt for the HP 15-g005au. Armed with a mediocre processor and mediocre features, it has limited capabilities. You will also face a hard time in maintaining the freshness of the outfit.
