Up for review today is the very budget friendly HP 15-bs212wm. Unlike many budget laptops that are compact with a tiny screen this model features a full sized 15.6 inch display which is great for those unwilling to compromise on screen size. Below we will review some of the key benefits and downsides to this model and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Celeron N4000
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 500 GB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– Comes with a full sized 15.6 inch display
– While it doesn’t have a full TB of storage the 500 GB SATA drive is still going to be plenty of space for the average consumer
– DVD-Write is included unlike many other newer laptops
– Includes the latest and greatest from Microsoft in Windows 10
– Comes with a low end processor that will struggle with high end applications or heavy multi-tasking
– Along with a lower end processor it also has limited memory at just 4 GB which will have a negative impact on potential performance
– Hard drive is only 5400RPM which again is a potential performance bottleneck
The HP 15-bs212wm isn’t going to win any prizes for being a top performer but like anything you get what you pay for. This laptop is still a great fit for those who want something very affordable to handle basic day to day tasks like email, internet surfing and social media.
