HP 17-BY1033DX Review

Even though laptops are designed to be more mobile that doesn’t mean a large screen is necessarily a bad thing. Even while on the go a large display can be very useful and that is what you will find on the all new
17-BY1033DX as it features a larger than average 17.3 inch screen. Below we will review some of its key benefits and downsides to see just how well it stacks up.


Processor: Intel Core i5

Memory: 8 GB of RAM

Storage: 1 TB SATA

Screen: 17.3 Inches

OS: Windows 10


  • The large display is great for those who prefer plenty of viewing area even when on the go and beats having to work off of the tiny displays that are available on some models
  • Your storage needs should be very well covered on this HP with a large 1 TB hard drive available, this is much more than your average laptop model
  • The Intel Core i5 processor is very capable even though it isn’t the highest model available. For those that want to save a little bit of money while still having great capability this is a perfect option


  • Due to the large display this laptop has a lot more bulk than your average model. It tips the scales just over 5 pounds making it a little cumbersome when taking on the go
  • It lacks an SSD drive which would have really gave it a nice boost in performance
  • You will only find a very basic integrated graphics card included so even though it has a great large display it lacks the graphics performance to play most modern games


The HP 17-BY1033DX key feature is its large 17.3 inch display, outside of that it is a pretty average laptop model. If having a big display is priority for you than this may be the perfect choice.
