Pros
  • Touch-screen display

  • Generous Battery Life (>10 Hours)

Not everyone is looking for a powerhouse when searching for a laptop. Not everyone's a programmer or a graphic designer, and many people will barely even open a spreadsheet on a laptop let alone edit it. For these people, manufacturers have developed what is popularly known as a cloudbook, Windows's answer to the Chromebook surge. 

Basically, these are extremely affordable laptops with limited specs such as storage and RAM that focus more on having a long-lasting battery life, a portable design, and essentially on being devices set up to consume information and to do some light office tasks such as editing documents and so forth.

Today we're here to tackle one of such devices, the popular HP 14-fq0050nr, an affordable cloudbook that has managed to garner stellar reviews amongst users, especially amongst those buying this laptop for students. But, should you buy it? That's what we're here to find out!

[Review] HP 16U74UA#ABA (17-by3072cl): Impressive Stuff!

       



While it's true that 17-inch laptops are far from mainstream these days when the new standard is the 14-inch laptop, we can't forget that there's still a market who looks for bigger screen real estate, a market that's looking for a laptop that's powerful as well as big enough to replace their desktops yet allows for portability when needed.

Such is the case of HP's recently launched HP 17-by3072cl, also known in some sites as the HP 16U74UA#ABA (one is the product number and the other the laptops name). Either way, HP's new laptop has managed to gather quite a following thanks to its integration of the latest Core i7 processor, a generous storage option of 512 GB, a relatively lightweight design that doesn't reach the 6-pound mark as well as its extremely balanced price point

Yet, is it worth buying? And, more importantly; is this the laptop you've been looking for? Today we're set on figuring this out on this review of the HP 16U74UA#ABA / HP 17-by3072cl.

[Review] HP Envy x360 15-dr1072ms: Now We're Talking!

 

Pros
  • Full HD touchscreen
  • Intel Core i7 CPU for demanding users
  • A massive 512 GB storage
  • Good battery life
  • Competitive price point
Cons
  • No ethernet port

Convertible laptops might not have become the smash hit everyone thought they would a few years back but there's undoubtedly still a niche that's very interested in these devices which keep getting updates and interesting specs alongside the more traditional laptop format.

For many people, a highly efficient laptop that can double as a tablet is pretty much the dream, albeit a slightly larger tablet than most of us are used to. One brand in particular has managed to take this segment by storm, we're talking, of course, about HP and their Envy x360 lineup

Today, we're here to review one of the latest models to launch within this lineup, specifically the HP Envy x360 15-dr1072ms.

[Review] HP 15 DY1031WM: HP (Almost) Nailed It!

Pros
  • Core i3 CPU for a solid performance
  • 8 GB of RAM for comfortable multitasking
  • 256 GB of Storage
  • Massive battery life w/quick charge.
Cons
  • HD Display
  • No Ethernet port


HP has managed to fill up 2020 with a slew of interesting laptop proposals that go from the very basic entry-level models, such as the recently reviewed HP 15-DW1083WM, to very high-end laptops designed for the most demanding set of users. 

However, most of us don't fit in either of these use cases as most people need a nice mid-range laptop that can deliver a solid performance on everyday tasks without emptying out or bank accounts in the process. 

Such is the case of its shiny new mid-range, the HP 15 DY1031WM. A compelling laptop that hooked us in with its competitive price and knocked us out thanks to its pretty awesome features. Without further ado, let's see what all the fuss is about. 

[Review] HP 15-DW1083WM: It's Probably Not For You


Pros
  • Stylish design in red
  • Extensive battery life
  • Full connectivity suite
  • 128 GB of SSD storage
Cons
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • Dual core Processor
HP has worked hard this year to develop a laptop lineup that's as interesting as it is diverse, with several laptops that cater to the ever-increasing market of people who've taken on the task of working from home. 

However, not everyone who's working from home needs a state of the art laptop with all the bells and whistles, some just need a laptop to be able to perform the basic set of tasks we've come to expect from these devices ( ie: surf the web, edit documents, stream movies, write emails, listen to music, etc.)

Such is the case with this HP 15-DW1083WM, which arrives in a bright red color - that immediately manages to set it apart -,  a vibrant 15.6-inch screen - not all that common these days - a decent SSD storage of 128 GB, as well as a brand new Intel Pentium Gold CPU, all for a seriously competitive price point.

 Today we take it upon ourselves to dig deep and uncover everything there is to know about this budget laptop in this extensive review of the  HP DW1083WM.

Today we're going to get to know this model in excruciating detail to determine if this is the laptop that's going to make all your dreams come true or if you should just keep on walking in this review of the Acer Aspire 5 A515-55-75NC.

Who is it for?

This is a laptop for those who make a demanding use of the processor either working with multiple browser tabs open at once, editing images or rendering 3D models, as well as launching virtual machines to work on several operating systems at once. 

In short, it is a laptop that can meet the demands of everyday life in the office and school, with outstanding performance when streaming movies, due to having a large high-definition display.
