Reviews for the HP Star Wars Special Edition 15-an001na
Source: Expert Reviews
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.
