This Laptop is Truly a POWERHOUSE! I Love Love It!
HP Pavilion 15 Horizon Blue Laptop 15.6 Full HD Display, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, AMD Radeonu2122 Vega 8 Graphic, 8GB SDRAM, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD, 15-cw1063wm
I've tried to highlight everything that was super about this laptop below, and by category as much as I could!
I've spent days trying to figure out how to explain all the awesome features that this laptop has, it's truly a Powerhouse in every term! If you have never used a laptop before, or if you're a student, gamer, or just someone who works on the laptop for work or for blogs, or you like to make videos for YouTube, this laptop has it all. I'm going to try and explain the technical stuff later on in this review to help even a beginner who's not familiar with anything on a laptop, so they can understand in laments terms. This laptop is built for the end user (i.e. Me or You) without a doubt! They truly have thought of everything, I couldn't find one thing in which they were even a little weak on, everything was truly sound and very fast, which is what you want on any laptop!
The laptop is a very pretty blue and has a 15.6-inch screen and it has high definition like no other, the pictures are crisp and very clean and really in depth. The laptop itself is super thin; if you stand a dime up on its edge it is the exact height; so very thin and lightweight as well. The buttons on the laptop are large and easy to use, it's a joy to type on this laptop compared to others I've tried in the past.
SETUP: This is the easiest setup I've ever used or encountered on a laptop to date. Cortana the computers voice will walk you through the entire setup actually talking to you and taking you to pages that you need to complete the setup with. You will need your WIFI password and a couple of others. I had forgotten one of my passwords and Cortana took me right to the page to recover the password and then walked me through the rest of the setup. It was so easy and fast it kind of floored me compared to other laptops I've used in the past. It literally took me less than 10 minutes to be completely ready to go!
SYNCING: The laptop will give you the option to sync your laptop with your other devices, such as your home computer or your previous laptop. I highly recommend this option for many reasons, but the main one is that if you are working on a document or some other task at home or at work; you can leave your laptop when you're at home to go to a desktop that's synced and continue on you're desktop right where you left off on your laptop; its super useful and personally I love that you can do that!
ONEDRIVE: On my desktop at home I have the program from HP called OneDrive, when I synced this laptop to my desktop it automatically gave me all the documents in my office folders and also it loaded up all my bookmarks and favorites list. It was so awesome to not have to start all those lists over again; and again, it was all automatic, I didn't have to do anything at all. Just another super feature on this laptop!
WEBCAM: Just wanted to throw in a quick word on the webcam that comes on this laptop; I've always had trouble getting cameras on my computer and old laptops to work very easily. This webcam is setup perfectly and with one or two clicks you're off and running. It's super easy to use and has a great high def picture as well as it picks up, you're voice really well, so no need for an external microphone! 5 stars from me on this feature as well!
I'll try to make the technical short but to the point, this laptop is SUPER FAST, and it has everything someone would look for that makes it amazingly fast. The ram, the processor, the memory, HD speakers and monitor are all top of the line and would be really hard to beat from any competitor in my opinion.
The laptop comes with the following specs: (in personal terms so you can understand)
The processor is a AMD Quad-Core Ryzen 5 with Vega 8 graphics, (in laments terms, this processor is super-fast and the most current one that I could find on the net from HP, the speed of your laptop is important for many programs such as surfing the web with instant page downloads and no hesitations, with Microsoft office etc.) This processor is super-fast and 5th generation!
8 gigabytes of system memory or ram, ram is probably the most important part of your laptop, it's the speed you're looking for on a laptop and it makes pages load super-fast and almost instantaneous, it's the gas pedal of you're laptop literally, with little ram your laptop will be super slow it'll take forever to load a page or program, but with 8 gigabytes in this laptop you got yourself a screamer for sure, 8 gigs is super-fast and this laptop has it for sure. No lagging from all I've seen on this laptop.
1 Terabyte of hard drive storage; my last computer was 10 years old and an hp, a virus finally finished it off, but my point is this, after 10 years of use with pictures, documents and the works I had only used 270 gigabytes of hard drive storage; leaving me 750 gigabytes of space left. So, on this laptop; to have that much storage is insanely awesome! It will last you a very long time!
Windows 10 operating system, (self-explanatory) and WIFI and Bluetooth enabled as well.
High Definition Monitor 15.6” and Webcam!
128 GB SSDR4 and DDR4 allows for memory like the ram to run at mega high speeds, allowing again for a super-fast laptop!
OVERALL: I would absolutely recommend this laptop to anyone at any time! Its super fast and elegant looking with its slender look and blue top! It has everything a person could possibly want in a laptop, (that's my opinion, but if I could give this laptop 10 stars I totally would!) Absolutely recommended! Having used HP's for the last 13 or so years I can also tell you that they build them super reliable as well!
