Merits

  • Performance: HP has always made sure that it never compromises with the performance of any laptop it launches. The 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i3-6006U processor combined with the 8 GB DDR4 SDRAM provides adequate performance while performing medium level operational tasks.
  • Graphics and Sound: This laptop comes with an oversized display of 17.3”. That combined with an Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 520 and a dual-channel stereo surround sound, provides an excellent multimedia viewing experience to the user.
  • Storage: A huge 2 TB 5400 rpm SATA HDD of storage cannot be a complaint factor for any user. It is huge enough for saving any multimedia on it, without worrying about buying an external storage device.
  • Add-on: HP has worked on the looks for this laptop. It comes in a silver metallic look, with chrome plated hinges. Also, like almost all other HP laptops, the battery backup is adequate enough to satisfy the user.

Demerits

  • Portability: The laptop is quite bulky, weighing 2.6kg, and measuring 5 x 27.8 x 2.5 cm, which is too bulky and huge to be carried around anywhere.
  • Storage (Data Transfer speed): The storage capacity of this laptop is huge, but it has come at the cost of the quality. The old style SATA HDD used, instead of the latest SSD, does no good in enhancing the performance of data transfer.

Verdict

This laptop is great for multimedia viewing, owing to the great graphics and sound it offers, but surely is not enough for hard-core gaming. The adequate performance, and overwhelming storage space, a decent battery backup with a large display is everything a user can ask for. However, portability is a downfall in the case of this product.
