Manufacturer's Description

Perfect for both work and play, the HP Pavilion 15-n278sa 15.6” Laptop offers great-value home computing for any user.

Windows 8
The Pavilion 15 comes pre-installed with the expressive Windows 8 operating system. Packed full of intuitive apps, it gives you the information that’s important to you as soon as you need it.

The Start screen is based around Live Tiles. These program icons display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails, news and sports directly on the home screen. You don’t even have to open the program to receive important info and notifications.

There are additional features too with the pre-installed Windows 8.1 update. These include the reintroduction of the Start button, new Live Tile sizes and adjustable four-way multi-tasking windows along with developments to the lock screen, search and more.

Excellent everyday performance
The Pavilion 15 is powered by an AMD A8-4555M APU. An APU features both a processor and graphics card in one compact unit and delivers fast, everyday computing with excellent graphics.

The A8-4555M features quad-core processing which, when combined with 8 GB of RAM, delivers effortless multitasking. So whether you’re working on multiple spreadsheets and documents or simply want to stream music while you browse, you can rely on the Pavilion 15.

Large capacity storage
File storage is provided by an impressive 1 TB hard drive that’s capable of storing a whole family’s worth of documents, music and software.

Backing up your data is fast and easy thanks to three USB ports, three of which are USB 3.0. With far faster transfer speeds than previous generations, USB 3.0 makes light work of copying even the biggest files to external disc and flash drives.

Unlike many new laptops, there’s also built-in DVD drive for backing up, easily installing software or watching movies on the move.
