Reviews for the HP 15-g005ng
Quiet operator. HP's 15-g005ng is powered by AMD's new Beema APU. The Beema APUs should shrink Intel's market share in the budget sector. Is the APU's power sufficient for this scheme?

Configuration uses 1.5GHz AMD Quad-Core A4-5000 APU processor with integrated AMD Radeon HD 8330 graphics card that uses system memory. One 4GB RAM module is installed, which is very good as the graphics is using system memory, and we encourage you to invest in additional memory. The rest of the system consists of a standard DVD optical drive and a 500GB SATA hard disk, while for connecting, next to 1MB LAN adapter, WiFi and Bluetooth modules with support for 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 are used. 4-cell battery achieves good autonomy for the 15.6" model offering 7.5 hrs of work, on average. Although this laptop will not be a good choice for demanding customers who use advanced applications and love gaming.
Positive: Decent production quality; good performance; great autonomy; very affordable price.

AMD Radeon R5 (Beema/Carrizo-L): Integrated graphics card in several AMD APUs (Beema and Carrizo-L).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
