Display and Build
The HP 15-r011dx (G9D66UA) Notebook sports a bright 15.6-inch HD LED backlit BrightView display with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is encased in a 25.4mm thick black coloured outfit which tips the scale at 2.2kg. It looks pretty solid in the grey casing.
Configuration and OS
At the heart of the device, you can find a 2.1GHz Intel Pentium quad-core N3520 processor. It works in combination with a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which is further expandable up to 8GB through the single user accessible DIMM slot.

Camera and Storage
The HP 15-r011dx (G9D66UA) Notebook dons a HP TrueVision HD webcam which can handle high resolution video calls smoothly. And the digital microphone cancels the background noise during the same. The 750GB SATA hard disk provides more than sufficient space for storing numerous files. With the SuperMulti DVD burner, you can easily store data on disks and retrieve them when needed.
Battery and Connectivity
The HP 15-r011dx (G9D66UA) Notebook draws the necessary amount of fuel from a 3 cell Li-ion battery. The networking and connectivity features come in the form of Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 slot, HDMI out, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0 and WLAN.
The HP 15-r011dx (G9D66UA) Notebook comes with features which are pretty commendable at its price. If you can ignore the mediocre Pentium processor, you will have standard features like 4GB RAM, HD webcam and SuperMulti drive. The presence of 750GB hard disk is a real surprise considering its price.
