Intel Core i7 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 15.6″ Screen
Mixing style and substance, all while being cost-effective, is a daunting prospect for any notebook manufacturer. While there’s a balance of features and usability to account for, packing everything into a shell that’s appealing to the eye and has an aesthetic design is no simple task.
Fortunately, the HP Pavilion 15-p233TU gets it all just right.
Stylish by design
Many manufacturers aim to build notebooks that are pleasing on the eye. There are those that target functionality, but capturing both is a real skill. That’s exactly what HP has managed to do. The metallic style finish of the outer shell wouldn’t be out of place on a much more expensive ultrabook.
Moreover, the contrasting black keyboard is incredibly easy to use and isn’t taxing even when tapping away for an extended amount of time.
Richness of Sound
Thanks to a partnership established by HP, the Pavilion 15-p223TU comes pre-loaded with BeatsAudio technology. The dual speakers provide a richness in sound that many other similar devices simply cannot match.
The notebook’s dual-speakers provide explosive power, whether you’re wanting to chill out with some music or be gripped by the audio from the latest blockbuster.
Outstanding battery life
Having to constantly charge any device can quickly become laborious and hugely impact overall usability. In the case of HP’s offering, the Pavilion 15-p223TU performs admirably.
Thanks to a lithium-ion four cell number under the hood, constant usage after a full charge can stretch above the five hour mark. That’s a great return, and easily represents more than a full day of on-and-off usage at the office or from home.
Storage, memory and power
In terms of specifications, the HP Pavilion can back up its pleasing outer shell with impressive features inside. The processor is an Intel Core i7-5500U, which the company debuted halfway through 2014. With a dual core and a maximum frequency of 3.1 gigahertz, it is more than capable of supporting the notebooks features, including the Windows 8.1 operating system.
The device also features a huge amount of RAM, 8 gigabyte in total, as well as a 1 terabyte hard drive. Ultimately, all of these parts add up to form a whole which will be super fast now, and in future too.
If you’re looking for a feature-packed laptop that is a lot more capable than its modest price would suggest, then the HP Pavilion 15-p223TU could be the perfect choice.
The HP Pavilion Notebook delivers the speed you need to get things done. With industry-leading processors, you never worry about having enough power.
