Powerful gaming laptop within budget
Display and Design
The HP Pavilion 15-n270tx (G4W16PA) sports a 15.6-inch HD BrightView LED backlit display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It has a thickness of 22.6mm and a weight of 2.33kg and looks attractive in its pearl white colour.
Processor and Platform
On the inside, the laptop is packed with a 1.8GHz Intel Core i7 processor belonging to the fourth generation and based on HM76 Express chipset. It is paired with a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,600MHz. It runs on 64 bit Ubuntu OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The HP Pavilion 15-n270tx (G4W16PA) comes with a HP TrueVision HD webcam and dual array digital microphone so that you can enjoy high resolution video calls free of noise. The 1TB SATA HDD relieves the user of any kind of storage problem. It also gets a DVD RW Drive enabling you to transfer data via disks.
The NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M graphics processor with dedicated 2GB DDR3 memory gives you the license to run demanding games and movies without facing any lag. Powered by DTS Sound technology, the dual stereo speakers provide rich multimedia experience.
Battery and Connectivity
The HP Pavilion 15-n270tx (G4W16PA) runs the show for a decent period of time on single charge courtesy a 4 cell Li-ion battery. Connectivity and networking options loaded in the gadget include two Ethernet ports, two USB 3.0 ports, WLAN, digital media reader, HDMI out, Bluetooth v4.0 and VGA port.
The HP Pavilion 15-n270tx (G4W16PA) is a strong laptop designed to provide rich multimedia experience but without asking for a premium. The lack of Windows OS is very disappointing, especially with such powerful hardware specs. Another cause for worry is the pearl white colour which gets dirty easily.
