  • Stiff trackpad

Bottom Line

The HP 15-ba030nr is a sturdy budget laptop with decent hardware, ample storage space and a responsive touchscreen display. But there is loads of HP bloatware pre-installed and will need to be removed.

The HP 15-ba030nr is a bestselling 2016 laptop that has been praised for its great value for the money and for its touchscreen display. While it may not be the most powerful hardware on the market, the Quad Core AMD processor will handle most day-to-day tasks with ease. While it will run older and classic titles, the Radeon graphics chip will struggle with newer titles while still offering frame rates of above 30fps. Ample storage space is provided by the 1TB mechanical hard drive, but users who after more performance over the 5400rpm drive can upgrade to a solid state drive for under $200. Users have mentioned a stiff trackpad and loads of bloatware that need to be removed for better performance.

    The HP Notebook 15-ac121nr is a good-looking 15-inch notebook with a full-HD screen and above-average battery life, but the keyboard could be more comfortable.

    For the 2016 version of their Omen, HP does not stop at a simple hardware refresh, but also updates the notebook with a stylish new chassis. We take a closer look at the 15-inch version with GeForce GTX 965M. What follows are our impressions.
