Benefits

Touchscreen is obviously a huge addition to the laptop market for many, With many consumers already quite comfortable with the technology from using it on smartphones and tablets for some time now it only makes sense to bring this benefit to the bigger devices. The HP 15-AY028CA is ready to give you this benefit right out of the box.

Storage can always be a concern especially on older devices as there hard drives slowly begin to fill up, so if you have lots of data to move to your new device having plenty of room for these plus room to grow is huge. Luckily this HP model comes with a large 1 TB drive meaning you should have more then enough storage to keep you going well into the future.

For a full sized laptop the total weight of just 2 Kg is pretty decent and a nice touch if you are somebody who travels with your laptop often or is consistently carrying it to work or school.

Downsides

The performance isn’t terrible on the HP 15-AY028CA but the Intel Core i3 is a step down from what we see in many of the mid-range priced laptop models. Luckily HP has also included plenty of memory at 8 GB so this does help offset the lower end processor somewhat but this combination of hardware may be a concern for users who really plan on pushing their laptop with resource hogging applications.

HP has stripped out the optical drive on this model which helps explain the lightness we mentioned above in the benefits section. For many this is no big deal as using physical media is a thing of the past, but there are still plenty who rely on this so we figure it is worth mentioning.

Verdict

In the HP 15-AY028CA you get a little less performance but the addition of a touch screen compared to other models that are price around the same, If touch screen is a must for your new device it is probably worth making the sacrifice unless you are willing to shell out more dollars to get a model that shines in both categories.
