3.6 / 5 stars (13 reviews) Amazon's Choice - Very good business laptop for the price
Latest review: April 12, 2019 | Model: HP Pavilion 15
I am very happy with the purchase of this HP Pavilion laptop with 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor. It replaces an older HP laptop with an AMD A10 processor that I had. A technical comparison/benchmark of the 2 is attached. Other than 3D graphics (AMD Radeon R5 appears a little faster than the Intel UHD 620), this laptop is better in all other categories. At under 500 bucks on Amazon, this looks like the best deal you can get for this configuration. I've tried the HP site with a corporate discount, and this price here on Amazon is still better. You may find other Core i5 laptops from other manufacturers around this price, but they won't have a touchscreen like this one does.Reviewed by: n-squared | Read HP Pavilion 15 reviews...
80% - The HP Pavilion 15-cs0003ng is a well-rounded 15.6-inch laptop that has a great design and enough power for most tasks. However, it has comparatively short battery life and a noisy fan under load, which may put off some potential buyers.

The HP Pavilion 15-cs0003ng has a modern design and an almost bezel-less display. Moreover, the Intel Core i5-8250U processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX130 GPU is a powerful combination that will breeze through general office tasks and even some games at the right graphics settings... Unfortunately, the NVIDIA GPU has a significant impact on battery life, with the practically identically equipped Pavilion 15-cs0053cl achieving twice as long runtimes in our tests as the 15-cs0003ng. Disabling the NVIDIA GPU in Device Manager would help improve battery life though. Overall, the Pavilion 15-cs0003ng is a great 15.6-inch laptop that falls short of the competition in a few areas.Reviewed by: Mike Wobker | Read full review...
3.5 / 5 stars - A decent enough option for budget buyers, but cheaper options offer the same basic experience and you only need spend a little more to get a much better screen. Review date: March 31, 2017 | Model: HP Pavilion 15-au072sa
This is a perfectly adequate laptop for those on a tight budget who just want a really basic device for day-to-day computing, and who also want the reassurance of decent performance and battery life... Combined with the fact that the HP’s display is particularly poor, you have a device that’s struggling to rise above the crowd. It’s certainly not a bad machine, but it’s not exactly a bargain.Reviewed by: Edward Chester | Read full review...
