Reviews for the HP Pavilion 15 ak-003ur

HP is stepping up its game with a good performance/price ratio
Source: Laptop Media English
The new HP Pavilion 15 is a great all-rounder and the high-performance version of the notebook is particularly interesting as it offers exceptional price/performance ratio. Yes, the overall build isn’t exactly “premium” or anything (still the only major drawback when it comes to design are the shallow keyboard design and stiff touchpad) but keeps the cost low while offering powerful hardware suitable even for gaming. Not to mention the surprising support of PCIe NVMe-enabled M.2 SSDs, which will surely come in handy to a handful of users. One of the few notebooks in this price range that’s compatible with the latest NVMe is the Lenovo Ideapad 700.

Comment

Model: The HP Pavilion 15 ak-003ur is laptop with decent performance designed for computer gamers and multimedia enthusiasts. The chassis is well-built with strong and lightweight plastic made with good craftsmanship and donned in neon green color, which differentiates itself from the other laptops. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition and is powered by a 2.3 GHz to 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5-6300HQ processor, 8 GB DDR3L SDRAM, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M graphic card with 4 GB DDR3L VRAM. There is a 120 GB Solid State Drive and 1 TB hard disk for storage capacity.

It has an anti-glare 15.6-inch Full HD display with white LED backlight. The keyboard is comfortable and enjoyable to type on and keys are lit up in neon green color. This makes it convenient to use the laptop in poorly lit environments. The Pavilion 15 comes with a DVD burner and ports included are two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, HDMI port, RJ-45 connector, headphone and microphone combo jack and a multi-format SD card reader. It carries a modest weight of 2.3 kg and the removable 4-cell lithium-ion battery life lasts for just about above three hours despite HP claiming that it can last for 6 hours.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
