HP Pavilion 15-bc303na (2WB48EA#ABU) is a multimedia laptop powered by an i5 processor and GTX 950 graphics. The processor is from the Kaby Lake generation meaning that we get a device that has new components.
The processor powering this laptop is an i5-7200U with two cores, low voltage and an integrated graphics chip.
Modern laptops like this one have two graphics chips. One is the one provided by the processor an the other one is the discrete graphics. At this model, the second one is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 with 4GB of RAM.
This Pavilion comes with Windows 10 Home and because of this and the previous mentioned components I recommend it for home use.
For memory this notebook PC uses 8GB of DDR4 so that everything runs fluent. In my opinion you don’t need more, the capacity of 8GB being the new standard.
Modern laptops have excellent portability and because of that this HP Pavilion 15-bc303na has a small weight of 2.2kg and a battery that lasts up to 11 hours.
It has a 15.6 inch screen with 1920×1080 pixel resolution and a panel that provides good viewing angles. The panel is a SVA (Scalable Visual Array) one that is similar to IPS. Because of this you can watch movies and play games at the best quality.
Does not come with ODD (optical drive), but having lots of USB ports you can connect an externa drive to install another OS or programs.
It does not come with an SSD drive, but has a big 1TB hard drive. Nobody stops you from installing a Solid State Drive instead of the HDD.
If you’re interested in a laptop that looks good and has great performance than a model like this would be my recommendation.
And, if you want a model with better performance than you could go with a Power model because it has GTX 1050 and SSD… but the price is a little bit higher.
