Bottom Line

The HP Pavilion 15ac151dx offers a powerful ultra low voltage Intel i5 processor and a large hard drive, but the display is average and the battery life won’t win any awards.

The HP Pavilion 15ac151dx is bestselling 2016 laptop that has been praised for its rugged HP build quality, its sleek minimalistic design and its powerful hardware for its price. But with only 4GB of RAM backing the 5th generation Intel i5 processor, it can feel sluggish when browsing with loads of tabs open or running more demanding apps such as Photoshop or Lightroom. Upgrading the RAM is cheap and easy, with only one of the two slots being used. The HP Pavilion 15ac151dx supports a maximum of 16GB for those users who want to max out their systems memory. While the Intel HD Graphics 5500 is by no means a high-end graphics chip, it will allow users to play older and classic titles on higher settings. As with many of HP’s entry level laptops, the HP Pavilion 15ac151dx is missing Bluetooth and has a very average display.

    The HP Pavilion x360 has above-average battery life, but it's held back by a dull display, a flawed touchpad and a slow hard drive.

    This being a cheap laptop, you don’t get anything too clever in terms of design – it’s not thin or light or made from premium materials. However, the pearlescent white casing and the striped pattern on the inside look rather fetching, and they're nicely contrasted by the chromed hinges and black screen surround.
