A full sized laptop that is under $500 is always going to turn some heads and that is exactly what the HP 15-BA008CA is. This 15.6 inch model is priced nicely for those who are on a budget or just not willing to spend big dollars on a new laptop but the real question is if it is worth it? Does the old saying you get what you pay for applicable here? Below we will take a bit closer look at this laptop model and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: AMD E2-7110
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 500 GB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inch Non-Touchscreen
With a large standard size 15.6 inch screen the HP 15-BA008CA has a great display for watching the latest media content in HD and provides superior video quality compared to some of the smaller low priced laptops on the market.
The full sized island-style keyboard which also includes a numeric keypad is very comfortable for typing and great for those who spend plenty of time typing weather it be just catching up on emails or writing out long essays for school.
At a total weight of 2 Kg you don’t have to completely give up on portability just because you are getting a lower priced budget model, While also being under an inch thick it is still easy enough to take with you on the go without being to much of a burden.
The lack of power in the HP 15-BA008CA should be the biggest concern for anybody seriously considering buying this device. While it is more then capable of handling the average users workload you will quickly notice its limitations if you plan on doing much more then just your basic tasks.
The lack of touchscreen will be a big deal for those looking to jump into this new technology which is available on plenty of new models. While this technology is not for everyone for some this is a must have.
The HP 15-BA008CA isn’t going to wow anybody with its superior performance or by having the latest must have features but it does offer consumers a way to get a new laptop without breaking the bank and still provide enough to get by. While the newest technology and best performance is always nice to have in anything new you buy for many consumers it is just an unneeded extra cost when all they need for what they do is a more basic option like this.
