Reviews for the HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-b129ea

50% HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15 review
Source: PC Pro English
At only £449, the HP's 1TB hard disk and 8GB of memory make it look like a great deal, but we're not convinced. While touch-enabled rivals such as the Sony VAIO Fit 15E cost more, we'd advise it's a price worth paying for a more balanced package.

60% HP Pavilion Touchsmart Sleekbook 15-b129ea review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-b129ea Sleekbook is sold as a cheap and cheerful 15.6-inch touchscreen laptop, and from a distance it certainly looks like it belongs in a higher price bracket with its stylish thin design. When put through its paces though, the points of cost saving become pretty starkly apparent: the screen isn’t particularly sharp or bright, it can be pretty sluggish in its day to day usage, there’s no DVD drive, and the battery capacity is so-so at just over four hours. A nice looking and competently performing budget touchscreen 15.6-inch laptop with some obvious cost savings, but there are better options out there in a similar price bracket.

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.
