Reviews for the HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-b129ea

50% HP Pavilion TouchSmart 15 review
Source: PC Pro English
At only £449, the HP's 1TB hard disk and 8GB of memory make it look like a great deal, but we're not convinced. While touch-enabled rivals such as the Sony VAIO Fit 15E cost more, we'd advise it's a price worth paying for a more balanced package.

60% HP Pavilion Touchsmart Sleekbook 15-b129ea review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-b129ea Sleekbook is sold as a cheap and cheerful 15.6-inch touchscreen laptop, and from a distance it certainly looks like it belongs in a higher price bracket with its stylish thin design. When put through its paces though, the points of cost saving become pretty starkly apparent: the screen isn’t particularly sharp or bright, it can be pretty sluggish in its day to day usage, there’s no DVD drive, and the battery capacity is so-so at just over four hours. A nice looking and competently performing budget touchscreen 15.6-inch laptop with some obvious cost savings, but there are better options out there in a similar price bracket.
