Model: There are currently many laptops in the low-medium range in the portable computer market today. This is most likely because there are many casual users out there who would prefer laptops that don't break their banks and can run most day-to-day tasks with the occasional gaming sessions. Hewlett-Packard's latest HP 15-db0045ns is one of these laptops. HP decided to equip their latest laptop with a medium to high range CPU, the AMD Ryzen 5 2500U. This processor comes with four processing cores with eight logical threads. It also has 4 MB of cache and can clock at a frequency range of 2.0 GHz to 3.6 GHz, all thanks for AMD's Turbo Core technology. Casual users who want a laptop for high-processing tasks like video and image editing will find that this laptop will suit their needs nicely. For those who are looking to do a little bit more of gaming on this laptop will be quite disappointed to know that the HP 15-db0045ns only comes equipped with an integrated graphics card, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8. However, it is worth noting that even though the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 is an integrated graphics card, it has enough power to play current titles at low to medium settings. This is definitely great news for those who don't care much about playing at high settings. The monitor is a TN panel with a matte finish, so users don't have to worry about any glares.

What it lacks in the graphics card department, the HP 15-db0045ns makes it up with a speedy 256 GB SSD instead of a traditional and slower 1 TB of hard disk drive. Another great thing about the HP 15-db0045ns is that it comes with a whopping 12 GB of RAM. The combination of SSD and massive 12 GB RAM will definitely help the laptop to run daily tasks smoothly. As for connectivity and port wise, the HP 15-db0045ns comes equipped with two USB 3.1 ports (for data transfer only), one USB 2.0 port, one HDMI output, one Ethernet port, and one headphone/microphone combo jack. It also has an SD card reader. So, users who want to add more storage can just add an additional SD card in this slot. Other than that, it has the usual dual-band WiFi plus Bluetooth 4.2 combo chip. It is too bad that HP did not include at least one USB Type-C port, like what other manufacturers are now doing. There is also a webcam for video-conferencing, but it is nothing to write home about. Measuring at 22.5 x 376 x 246 mm and weighing at only 1.77 kg, the 15.6-inch HP 15-db0045ns is definitely light enough for portability. While there are other lighter laptops around, it is quite difficult to find a 15.6-inch medium-high range laptop that weighs less. In any case, it is an excellent buy for those who don't need bells and whistles with their laptops.
