Up to a couple of years ago, the amount of people in the world that owned a laptop was very high and rapidly increasing. The thing is, not everyone owned a laptop: just the people that either needed it in order to work, study, or design. In 2020, though, a worldwide pandemic has forced everyone to stay cooped up at home and adapt to the new conditions, regardless of the area that they work in.

Today we'll take you through our review of the HP 17-BY105 laptop, one of HP's most recent launches this 2020. Going from the simple design and style, all the way through to the 8th generation i5 processor that it boasts, that makes it the perfect addition to someone who is starting a new work-from-home chapter in their lives.
