I don't expect budget notebooks to deliver top-notch performance, displays or even design, but the HP Notebook 15-ba009dx is subpar on just about every level. It lasts less than 4 hours on a charge, has a dim and bland display, a flat keyboard and a plastic case with significant give in the lid. It doesn't even support the latest Wi-Fi standard.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
