A large 17.3 inch laptop that doesn’t cost a fortune can sometimes be difficult to track down but that is exactly what we have with the all new HP 17-BS019DX. This model features the big display that many people love but with a more budget friendly price. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see if it might be a good choice for your next laptop.

– The large display isn’t all this laptop has to offer as it also comes with the powerful Intel Core i7 processor so you can rest assured it can handle your demands with ease
– Plenty of storage can be found here due to the large 1 TB SATA drive
– You don’t buy a 17.3 inch laptop expecting it to be light but for the screen size the total weight of 5.3 pounds is actually quite good and it isn’t too big and bulky compared to other similar sized laptop models
– Includes two USB 3.1 ports so you can expect great transfer speeds between it and your external devices that feature this technology
– The screen may be large but the display quality is average at best and doesn’t deliver the same quality you find in slightly more expensive options
– You won’t find an SSD drive in this model so boot times are not as quick as they could be otherwise
– Battery life of 6.75 hours isn’t terrible but compared to some of the newer models that are currently being released does seem a bit disappointing
– Another newer technology you will not find on this model is touchscreen
The primary objective of the HP 17-BS019DX is to deliver a large display for a good price and it has absolutely achieved that but outside of this it is pretty basic and doesn’t include anything that will really wow consumers.
