Reviews for the HP Star Wars Special Edition 15-an001na

80% The Force is strong with this one
Source: Expert Reviews English Archive.org version
Whether or not the Star Wars Special Edition is the right laptop for you will likely depend on how enamoured you are with the design and the additional content. The 15-an000na model (which doesn't come with dedicated graphics) is available for £439, which might be more enticing if you’re not interested in light gaming. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 940M is far from the best dedicated graphics chip around, so it’s not necessarily worth an extra £100 if you're not into gaming.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
