HP 15.6" Laptop - AMD Athlon 8GB-RAM 256GB-SSD (15S-EQ1518AU) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good price, decent specs, bad in practice I got this because it was a great price for the specs. When I unboxed it, it had the following bloatware installed: - McAfee trial (have to manually uninstall this) - ExpressVPN promotion (which was noisy with popup notifications to start it) - Dropbox promotion - some gaming subscription site promo - etc Opening Task Manager, the machine was also pegged at 100% CPU pretty much all the time, with all kinds of bloatware using 1-2% each. I'm going to have to go uninstall a bunch of crap. I also had to do a BIOS update on the first restart. Maybe that's the new normal? I find it a bit scary that we're flippantly automatically downloading and installing BIOS updates (no user prompt at all). That sounds like a nice attack vector for a hacker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New HP Laptop I've bought formerly Compaq now HP - Laptops for decades. They are the most robust I have experienced. HP should make it more obvious in their packaging about the fantastic capabilites of the automated "HP Support Assistant" which should be used from Day 1 to bring Drivers up todate! It is also a great capability to be advised and known about

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for coin. Decently quick enough for the price; multitasks ok. Can perform light gaming ie older games or newer games with settings on min. Nice quick ssd; 8gb ram limiting to multiple open applications as part used for graphic vram however easily and cheaply upgraded. Nice keyboard and a good sized screen. Battery life decent unless gaming, then drains quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP Laptop On line purchase with click and collect with delivery to the car. This didn’t go to plan but when I called the store to say we had given up waiting they explained the problem and we went back the next day and went in store to pick up. So all up a great experience and the price was by far the best for the same product. Would definately shop here again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tidy Touching the mouse pad activates the backlit keyboard, that's a good feature. The charge port is on the corner for added strength I assume that. Great keyboard layout,,,BIG letters. I don't play games so sorry can't comment on speed Last thing, Nice N quiet.
