Reviews for the HP Pavilion 13-b102TU
Source: NDTV Gadgets Archive.org version
The HP Pavillion 13-b102TU is an elegant, attractive laptop with basic core specifications but just enough extra to justify its price tag. Students and workers who live off their laptops will particularly appreciate the large hard drive and matte screen, but this laptop would be just as suitable for home use too. Battery life is on the low side, but that's the tradeoff necessary to achieve this weight and thickness.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70%: 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.
