  • 7th generation AMD CPU
  • Ample storage space
  • Lighter than most 15.6-inch laptops
  • All-black color scheme
  • Touchscreen display


  • Slower Windows boot time
  • Only one USB 3.0 port
  • No AC WiFi

Bottom Line

The HP Pavilion 15-BA079DX is a budget friendly laptop that looks elegant and features a 7th generation AMD processor. But it is not suited for power users looking to edit photos or videos.

The HP Pavilion 15-BA079DX is a bestselling 2016 budget friendly laptop that has been praised for its 7th generation AMD processor, ample storage space, attractive price, lighter design and for its responsive touchscreen display. But the slower hard drive means that it does take a while to boot into Windows and you can only install a maximum of 8GB of RAM. But the HP Pavilion 15-BA079DX is not meant for power users and is more suited for basic home and office use.

    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.
