Reviews for the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15-b055sf

60% HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15
Source: Digital Versus English
The Pavilion 15 is HP's new 15.6" ultrabook—sorry, sleekbook—that HP says is thin, powerful and affordable. The HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15 is indeed thin, powerful and affordable, but that doesn't give the screen a quality image or allow you to play games on it. With a display this off-kilter, we couldn't possibly give it more than three stars.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
