4Performance laptop with a stiff touchpad
By Mussie
Well, i am new to reviewing stuff on Amazon but i guess i can help potential buyers get some info on this laptop. Before i start, i just want to mention that this is just my opinion and not necessarily reflects all batches of this laptop. This might be too wordy but i just want people to read this review and get a detailed review, since i didn't find a lot of those when i read the reviews for this laptop.

Pros
Processor allows one to multitask like open multiple chrome tabs while watching HD videos on YouTube. Although i have to mention that i was monitoring CPU usage on task manager and saw that the processor is like 70 - 90 utilized depending on the load, but that is expected. This doesn't mean that i saw a noticeable slow down, it just was using the CPU to almost its limits. Although that could be chrome's way of utilizing resources.
RAM
This was a bit surprising because i was expecting DDR3L RAM but i got DDR4 instead. At least according to the packaging box and CPU-Z software i used to check. I don't know a lot about RAM technology but i believe from what i read online DDR4 is faster than DDR3 so that's a plus.
Screen
As expected the laptop has 1920 * 1080 resolution. Since this is my first time using a laptop with this kind of resolution things look detailed and tinier. Especially when i use the browser. But i noticed that some applications might not be configured to go with this resolution and might look blurred. Yet this is not the laptop's issue but the applications which were not optimized for a wide variety of screen resolutions.
Graphics
In short this is not a gaming computer. In fact, this laptop is actually for my sister who will be joining a university next year so i believe it should be fine for her since she is not into games. But this doesn't mean you can't play video games, it is just that it has to be done by the on board Intel graphics chip that depends on the speed of the processor and (RAM amount and speed) to give an average performance. So you can probably open games of 2016 but they won't have stellar frame rates. For me that is not a deal breaker because you get what you pay for. But for older games this laptop should give you an average performance. If you want to know more, there is a website called notebookcheck.net which has detailed reviews on processors and graphics chips.

Cons
The reason i didn't give five stars for this laptop is because i noticed that the touch pad is a bit stiff. Meaning you have to exert more force than other touch pads to click on things. But that shouldn't be a deal breaker because you can get used to it overtime and have a wireless mouse option. However, HP should improve future versions because i have read other reviews and a couple of people have also mentioned this.

Overall
Even though the packaging quality is not relevant to the product itself, i felt that it was packaged well since they have like a foam support on the sides of the laptop so that it can absorb shocks when moving. You also have a one year warranty(at least) from the seller which you can see by opening one of the on board HP apps.

Finally, there are some things i wish future versions could have like an improved touch pad and options to include both an SSD and HDD with different size options. That way one could have an SSD to store the operating system and other essential software where extensive disk usage affects system performance. A back-lit keyboard would also be appreciated, of course all these improvements will mandate a price increase but including different variants of this laptop with these options might help HP sell more of this laptop and also give the consumer more choice. This laptop doesn't take a lot of time to restart but i am sure it will be much faster if it had an SSD. I couldn't get one because i thought the size available wouldn't be enough for my sister. Anyway, i hope my review helps potential buyers.

4I am not a computer geek but familiar with some of the things that make a computer/laptop great, or better than others
By Shanty Socialite
HP Notebook 15-ay011nr 15.6-Inch Laptop (6th Gen Intel Core i5-6200U Processor, 8GB DDR3L SDRAM, 1TB HDD, Windows 10), Silver
I had to use this for few days before I decided to write a review. I am not a computer geek but familiar with some of the things that make a computer/laptop great, or better than others.

Here are my observations about this laptop;

- The linear/hairline design on the cover itself is a stand out. I love it as I dont have to worry leaving some finger marks there. The chiclet keyboard is functional and easy to navigate EXCEPT the Up and Down Arrows. The keys are too small (Check the photo along with this review). Its a struggle to use it at times. Its also a good thing to have a DVD ROM in this laptop since most of the new models have taken this out of their design. USB ports are all accessible. Its easy to lift the cover and open it up without having to use both hands. Overall, it has a smooth and metal feel like design, although its not heavy at all. Its actually thin despite of it having the dvd-rom.
- 15.6 screen is perfect, although I am not super amazed with the picture quality as I was expecting a more lively color. Perhaps I have to play more with the screen setting. The sound quality is better than my Asus laptop so its a plus point for me as I like playing music while doing some computer work. Wifi and Bluetooth tested and work great.
- Battery is awesome! It charges fast and stays up to 8-9 hours.
- This laptop is using an i-5 core processor with 8gb RAM with 1TB HDD! Its already a super power for someone like me who uses computer mainly for some photo editing works, browsing and other usual internet activities. Its super fast and responsive. I tried opening several windows and it still function really great.

This a very good laptop under $500, I've tried looking at several models and tried to compare their specs and prices. Well this is the winner for me. I only gave it 4 stars because of the Up and Down arrow, other than that it exceeds most of my expectations in a budget laptop and I'm a happy camper. Let me know if this is helpful. If you have questions that I might be able to answer, feel free to ask.

5amazing laptop/ notebook
By jamie
Love, love, love this notebook/laptop! Arrived quickly, packaged well. Already semi charged out of the box! I started it up, was quick, the graphics are very vivid, clear and high definition. There aren't alot of unnecessary apps to bloat it. The first thing I did was to add my paid for virus protection, advast, which I love, I added the apps I wanted and it was ready to rock. The platform where the keyboard is feels smooth to thd touch and while typing your hand seems to glide smoothly across the keys which is a plus, it feels natural and the keys respond with a slight tap. The outside of the case is similar to a brushed metal with ridges, leaving no smudges and fingerprints when closing or opening it for use. I'm a windows 7 fan and didnt think id like the 10 that came with it, I wanted a 7 but couldnt find one that I liked or had great reviews so after reading the good and the bad, I bought this one and haven't regretted it. Its fast going from window to window, uploading and downloading. No lag in between apps, just does what you want it to without any hesitation. Feels light carrying it room to room, and the battery is good for about 6 hours before needing plugged in again. All in all this is a nice laptop for the money and mine came with the optical drive becausd no matter how much you can do on line with out having to use it like adding pictures , music, documents or any other thing you want to transfer, now you have cloud, dropbox, and one drive to do that, I still find I want to use the optical drive to watch movies when there's no internet available, like when you camp remotely! My reason for the optical drive. I can't think of anything else to add to my review, my experience with electronics is minamal, so writing this review in my own words trying to get my points across, may be a little windy or long in explanation, but I hope if your looking for a good, easy to use, nice looking, quick laptop, this is the one and well worth the money spent. On another note, before I bought this one, I did buy another HP with windows 7 on it here on Amazon, but when I received it, it wouldnt connect with my HP wireless all in one printer, I had to upgrade the drivers first in the laptop, which was a pain, it seemed everything I needed to add to it had to have drivers installed first, and than there was an issue with staying connected to the internet, I started to think it was my internet, but no, it was the laptop! Heres what im getting at, I went back to my account on Amazon, and looked at their return policy on laptops, I had this one for 26 days, and was afraid they wouldn't take it back, but I proceeded to follow their instructions for a return, repackaged the laptop in the box it came in, (I did use a cleaner and did a factory restore first) and they sent me a return label which I attached to the box, the very next day ups picked it up from my house, and it couldnt havd been more than 3-4 days I had a full refund in my account! So bottom line if you order a laptop, get it, and don't like it, returning it is hassel free, and refunds are quick! thanks for reading and good luck with whatever you decide on!
