Got this beauty as soon as the 5th Generation Intel "Broadwell" processors went public and this model is a complete bargain at the price! The 5th Gen i3 has improved battery performance as well as a better integrated GPU, HD5500. But that's still in the background thanks to the dedicated 2GB DDR3 GT830M Nvidia GPU. To put the performance to test, I fired up Skyrim! For comparison, on my old Lenovo with 4th Gen i3, 8GB RAM and GT820M 2GB DDR3, Skyrim auto-loaded on Medium graphics settings, but on this Pavillion, even with only 4GB RAM it auto-loaded on High settings and that's quite a treat to watch and play as well! There was absolutely no lag whatsoever! That says a lot about the horsepower of this laptop. Sound is pumped out by beatstudio speakers which are definitely better than most laptops, but nothing really that great to show-off about. Looks-wise, it's definitely an eye-turner thanks to the all-white body and silver-colored frame. The screen has a black bezel to give a good contrast. The keyboard is well spaced and again white keys mean scope for a lot of dirt so a silicon cover is recommended. One thing I noticed is lack of a light/indicator on the Numeric Keypad, so there's no way of knowing if NumLock is actually on or not without typing first. The touchpad will take some time to get used to but it has all the multi-touch features of Win 8.1. There's a lot of bundled software included so that's your call on whether to use/delete. The backpack provided is of high quality and is a great add-on. Battery life came out to about 3 hours with medium use, so that's pretty decent considering the screen-size. Definitely the laptop to go to if you're looking at the Rs40,000 range.
i bought it from hp world,,...after using it for 2 months ...here is my review ...5th gen i3 is equivalent to 4th gen i5...i upgraded my ram to 8gb.. and gt830m is better then gt820m ...i played gta 5 on high at 23-28 fps (you can watch my gameplay on youtube) watch dogs 18-22 fps on custom(shadows texture reflection and water all on high)in short it is playable i also played cod ghost,spac ops,saints row,skyrim,ac unity(15-18 fps it even legs on gtx660 so leave it) dying lights,dmc5,ac black flag,bf3 and some more.....these games are played on my lap and all work gr8...except unity.... look wise this lap is best..because no one have a white laptop in my friends :p now beatsaudio is something that every lappy should have...you cant see the diff until you compare it with other laptop side by side .... keypad is just ok... display is not that good...black levels are very bad :( still at this price it is the best laptop suited for me...for medium gamming and development purpose
WITHIN 2 MONTHs OF GETTING THE LAPTOP THE KEYBOARD STOPPED FUCTIONING PROPERLY. HALF THE KEYS BECAME JAMMED. SINCE THAT I HAD TO RUSH THE LAPTOP THRICE FOR THE SAME ISSUE PLUS OTHERS AS WELL. THE MOUSE WAS NOT WORKING FOR THAT AS WELL. THESE HAPPENED WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF BUYING THE LAPTOP. AFTER THE LAST VISIT TO HP CENTRE AROUND APRIL 2K16 THEY DID SOMETHING WITH THE LAPTOPS MONITOR AREA BASICLY THEY DIDNOT FIX IT PROPERLY AFTER CHANGING THE SCREEN WHICH INFACT WAS DAMAGED DUE TO THEIR CARELESS HANDLING AND LEFT A SCRATCH ON IT, THE PANEL AREA WAS NOT FIXED PROPERLY. RIGHT AFTER THE DURATION FOR FREE SERVCN GOT OVER THE HINGE BROKE. NOW DUE THIS HINGE I NEED TO CHANGE THE ENTIRE BODY OF THE MONITOR AND THAT WILL COST ME AROUND 15K AT ANY HP STORE. THE HINGE AS MENTIONED BY OTHER COMPUTER REPAIR EXERTS OF THIS RANGE IS FLIMSY AND SUSCEPTIBLE TO BREAK. AND I KID U NOT MOST OF THE LAPTOPS OF THIS 30-39K RANGE PARTICULALRLY HP END UP IN REPAIR SHOP WITH BROKEN MONITOR HINGE FOR WHICH U AGAIN HAVE TO SHELL OUT HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY. HENCE DUW TO PERSONAL EXP I THINK BUYN THIS LAPTOP IS AN EXTREMELY BAD IDEA.
hp has done a grate job, they had provided you with all the stuff you want in a mid range. The only drawback is the sound quality in the flashlight of beats audio. The sound is very low as compared to other laptops in this range. The dealer should have provide a back pack for such a nice device. This has been only suited for heigh end games.
I am using this product since 3 months. Beautiful look and feel and milky white color I found everything is good. Also very good service from Snap Deal and delivered in quick time. Also got a snapdeal cash back.
