The 15-B168CA still doesn't have the power to play games smoothly at native resolution, for that you'll need a more performance oriented system like the HP Pavilion M6-1188CA. The 15-168CA's battery performance was kind of short, at 3 hours 19 minutes. Contrast this with the HP Pavilion M6-1188CA with almost six hours or the Samsung Series 3 with over five hours.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Usually, old laptops with 14-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
