The HP 15s-fp1040ns comes with a 15.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The anti-glare display improves the overall user viewing experience. It is extremely mediocre, but, for a business-class laptop mostly used by executives, good enough. With the incorporation of a Micro Edge Screen, this laptop fits a larger screen in a smaller frame. This ultra-thin display with barely visible bezels definitely revolutionizes the way the screen will present itself with a beautiful and efficient design. On the other hand, the light weight makes it easily portable, improving user convenience at all times. With dual array microphones, which include two microphones along with an advanced noise reduction software, voice recording tends to be much clearer, either for audio recording or even for video conferencing. In addition, the HP TrueVision HD Camera that has been embedded within this laptop increases the image clarity while video conferencing in low-light situations, giving the experience of having a real face-to-face conversation. There are also two forward-facing speakers.

The USB-3.1 connectors have the ability to transfer data with a speed that is ten times faster than USB 2.0. This again accounts for better productivity and user convenience. As far as the battery is concerned, this model sports a 41Wh 3-cell Li-ion battery with a battery life of up to 11 hours and 30 minutes after having been fully charged. This reduces the need for frequent recharging while using the laptop.

This is definitely a laptop to look out for if it fulfils the needs of the users, depending on their business preferences.
