Reviews for the HP 15-g237nr

60% HP 15-g237nr (15-g200)
Source: Comp Reviews English
HP's 15-g237nr laptop is a colorful system but it makes a few compromises for its low price and features. For instance, it comes with a touchscreen display which is nice. It also features an AMD quad core processor with better than average graphics. The downside is that the performance and battery life are less than average in this price range. Buyer's should really consider if they need the touchscreen display or not.

Comment

Model: This HP laptop targets users who want to stand out from the crowd. Unlike all other laptops that are designed in inconspicuous colors like black, grey, metallic or white, the HP 15 is kitted out in blazing red. Both the lid and the area surrounding the keyboard is made of dark red plastic contrasted with a black bezel around the screen. The screen itself measures 15.6 inch with WXGA technology and features a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Support of multi-touch for easy navigation makes the screen special.

Powering this standout gadget is an AMD A6 quad core mobile processor and an integrated AMD Radeon 8400 graphics card. There are 4 GB PC3-12800 DDR3 RAM and a 500 GB SATA hard drive. The hardware is mostly adequate for daily tasks but may not take heavy usages like graphic laden gaming and video editing. There is also a DVD player and burner for those who prefer to backup or share data with DVDs. It measures slightly over one inch (2,54 cm) in thickness and weighs slightly below 2.5 kg. The Windows 8 OS provides a seamless interface to make full use of the touchscreen feature. Truly, this laptop will appeal to those who wish for something more unique and not mainstream.

AMD Radeon HD 8400:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 600 MHz and paired with AMD Richland A6 "Kabini" processors.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
