The HP Pavilion 15-r204TU (K8U02PA) is a powerful laptop at a standard price with the major highlights being the CPU and 1TB hard disk. However, in order to keep the price under control, it has skipped user friendly OS.
I have used it for a week now and these are my impressions: 1. Good Configuration. 2. Good speed. 3. Budget Range. 4. Slot for RAM expansion. 5. Slim 6. Light weight compared to Lenovo Laptops. 7. Only warm after use (Not tried gaming till now) Cons: 1. Can be full HD screen (but no other good laptop have full hd in this range)!! 2. Has to use another laptop or PC to download driver for WiFi. Then install HP assistant. 3. Slightly bigger not bulkier (Maybe because i am using a 14inch laptop till now). Nothing more..... Cons of others explained:-- 1. No OS: This can be solved if u know how to install an OS.Can install Win 8.1 in 20min. 2. Drivers can be easily found after installing WiFi driver from HP site. Install HP assistant and it will find you all that is needed or your computer. NB: It will take time to download and install the drivers. Takes more than 1GB. Use a steady WiFi. Hope this gives good option for you to decide to buy or not. No problem for techies to find solutions to these problems.!!!!
Would have been great if Driver DVD was provided as well as OS. This comes with DOS. And the HP customer care is not very much responsive about providing help.
