HP Pavilion 15-p151ng Notebook Review

75% HP Pavilion 15-p151ng Notebook Review

Without stamina. At a first glance, the specs of the HP computer sound interesting. However, it turns out quickly in practice that the built-in hardware is very power-hungry. As a result, the battery life of the notebook is poor.

Alternative? Not really. The highlight of the Flex 14 is surely its 300-degree swivel screen alongside the related multimedia and presentation options. Lenovo now expands this product line with a weak AMD APU from the E-series. Why this concept does not work can be read here.

AMD business. HP asks for about 750 Euros (~$1030) for their ProBook 655 business notebook. For that price, the buyer gets an office device with an AMD APU, a matte display and a quick hard drive. Additionally, the computer is pre-equipped for the installation of an LTE modem and offers easy access to its inner workings for maintenance. But does the notebook do well in practice?

Wasted potential. An affordable multimedia laptop featuring a quad-core APU, 16 GB of RAM and Crossfire graphics - that sounds almost too good to be true. In fact, Lenovo's G505s looks like a virtually unrivaled price-performance bundle on paper, but it also has some serious faults.

The AMD alternative? A quad-core CPU, Crossfire graphics and plenty of memory - the HP Pavilion 15 offers a lot for less than 500 Euros (~$663). But how competitive is AMD's new platform and does the inexpensive 15-inch notebook offer any surprises?

Caught in the middle. Lenovo chose AMD APU's Richland generation for the new G505s series. In addition, there is also a dedicated Radeon GPU in the notebooks so that the two graphic cores are working in a Crossfire connection. It sounds like Lenovo is offering a notebook for the economical gamer. Our test determines whether that is true or not.
