Malcolm, Ilkley Designs flight simulation airports

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very light yet doesnt feel flimsy. Innovative touchscreen should really only be used with windows 8 as it really brings out the features of this new OS. Powerful, very fast, and a pleasure to use
Bad points:
Non really. Was great value for money but there are similar touchscreen models now at a cheaper price. The biggest drawback was, oddly, windows 8. It rewrites how you do things, and this can be very frustrating at first, however like all new products you should give it time. The laptop and windows 8 are inseperable, so if you cant live with windows 8 then this is not the laptop for you.

Manufacturer's Description

The HP Pavilion 15-b161ea Refurbished 15.6" TouchSmart Laptop brings a new dimension of fun and easy usability to portable computing.

Driven by Windows 8

You can enjoy some of the best computing with the Windows 8 operating system that powers this HP laptop. The new Start screen keeps you up to date with everything important to you with live updates to the tiles, so you’re always in the loop. It uses gestures that make it simple to navigate through all of your apps and documents.

With a cloud connection it’s simple to access your documents and apps whichever Windows 8 device you’re on, so you’re always connected. There are hundreds of apps available in the Windows Store, and they can even work together for more streamlined computing.

As this operating system can run on low-powered processors, it helps to improve the battery life of your laptop, so you can carry on computing all day.

Advanced hardware for everyone

Working off an AMD A4-4355M APU processor with AMD Radeon HD 7400G Discrete-Class graphics (up to 3.98 GB), this fast HP laptop brings touchscreen technology and superior performance to everyone.

A 1.9 GHz clock speed and 1 MB L2 memory cache enable it to run solidly and smoothly, and a big 8 GB of DDR3 memory really provides multitasking muscle. Feel the freedom of working in multiple applications with ease and power.

A huge 1 TB hard drive enables quick and easy file storage, so you’ll always be prepared for work with documents or entertained with your videos, photos, songs and other applications right where you want them.

Get in touch with touchscreen technology

In the Pavilion 15-b161ea, a great everyday notebook has been enhanced to let you transcend the keyboard and mouse as you experience Windows 8 on a full-sized touchscreen.

Swipe, scroll, tap, and zoom using multi-touch gestures on the 15.6” 1366 × 768p LED display. You’ll get more done and have more fun with the intuitively fast and fluid Windows 8; scroll effortlessly through social networks, share photos with a few taps or start a Skype chat with one touch.

Enhanced audio and other features

As well as superior graphics and a fully interactive display, the HP Pavilion 15-b161ea TouchSmart Laptop features integrated Altec Lansing speakers for premium audio. Coupled with Dolby Advanced Audio, they’ll lift your music and spice up your videos no end. Connect up some headphones or external speakers to feel the full extent of their sonic power.

Whether it’s for work or play, a face-to-face conversation is sometimes all that will do. With the HP TrueVision HD Webcam2, you’ll always be in touch while looking your best, even in low light.

All hooked up

Internet connectivity is available in the form of an integrated Ethernet port and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The HP Pavilion also has Bluetooth for direct and easy file transfer and sharing.

A plethora of connectivity options is provided, from HDMI and mini-display ports for connecting to a compatible TV or monitor, to the USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports that facilitate use of memory sticks, graphics tablets and more.

There’s a multi-format digital media card reader that’s perfect for secure digital cards and multimedia cards, enabling you to transfer files from your digital camera and more. Use the 3.5 mm jack to plug in headphones or a microphone for listening and recording purposes.

Slim design

The Pavilion 15-b161ea TouchSmart Sleekbook is designed to both fit in and stand out. Its thin, easy-carry design makes it simple to keep with you wherever you go, and it’s eternally elegant in sparkling black.

Featuring an advanced touchscreen and contained in a beautifully light and slender design, you’ll want the HP Pavilion 15-b161ea Refurbished 15.6" TouchSmart Laptop with you all the time.
