Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As I bought this as refurbished, it was very good value for money. Battery life is relatively longer time.
Bad points:
Although it has got massive 8GB ram, it is not quite so fast.

Stephanie, Bournemouth Music, gaming or video fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It looks good and is light in weight. The graphics are very high quality. Key board is well layed out and responsive. I like a lot of the new windows 8.1 features, like easy access to apps.
Bad points:
I would have preffered the battery life to be longer. It is't faster than my old acer lap-top. I'm not keen on the mouse board and the buttons are very stiff. I don't like that some apps you can't drag to the bottom to close them. I am still new to the whole system and still have things to learn.

Manufacturer's Description

The HP Pavilion 15-n297sa 15.6" Laptop in black has the space, power and connectivity to keep you going while you’re on the go.

Working with Windows
You can get closer to your digital world with the superb Windows 8 operating system. Based on the Windows 7 operating system, Windows 8 offers speedy navigation that’s a pleasure to use.

The Start screen has a tiled design that helps to keep you up to date with everything you love. The tiles update in real time, so you’ll never miss out on another status or news article. It is also cloud-connected, making it easy to switch between your Windows 8 PC and this laptop.

Thanks to the multitouch touchpad on the Pavilion 15-n297sa, you can make use of gestures to swish and tap your way through Windows 8. There are a number of apps available to download from the app store that are perfect for work and play, and, as Windows 8 can run on low-powered processors, it can even help to extend the battery life of your laptop.

There are improvements coming too with the launch of the free 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.

To store and process
The HP Pavilion 15-n297sa Laptop runs on a dual-core Intel® Core™ i5-4200U processor, bolstered by 8 GB of RAM that enables it to run quickly and offer you excellent multitasking capabilities.

You won’t need to worry about running out of storage space with a big 750 GB hard drive, giving you reams of space for your photos, videos, songs and other documents. Keep what you need and love with you at all times.

There’s also a built-in DVD-RW drive that lets you watch movies, burn discs or extract information to keep you productive.

Look and listen
Take in sumptuous views with the laptop’s HD BrightView LED screen. The HD Ready resolution of 1366 × 768 gives you colourful, detailed graphics and makes movie watching, games playing and web surfing a joy.

DTS Sound+ delivers superior sound via two integrated stereo speakers, so you’ll have a great experience whether you’re kicking back with a video or bouncing to some tunes.

More ways to get connected
There are multiple connection options with the HP Pavilion 15-n297sa. Two USB 3.0 ports allow you to connect compatible external devices and provide data transfer rates up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. A USB 2.0 port is also available for a reliable conventional connection.

An HDMI port lets you connect with compatible HD appliances such as external monitors, Blu-ray players and more to keep your entertainment and viewing options open. These multiple ports let you easily attach displays, printers, graphics tablets, external drives and more for an expanded computing experience.

Software for you
The HP Pavilion 15-n297sa Notebook comes with a range of great programmes and features to get you off to the best start and keep things moving along nicely.

HP Connected Music has been embedded so that you can access the Universal Music Catalogue for one year free, giving you the chance to win concert tickets, meets and greets with artists and exclusive concerts.
