HP 15-d020nr specification and performance 

As told earlier, AMD A4-5000 accelerated processor in HP 15-d020nr has four cores and it operates with 1.5 GHz clock speed. The clock speed can’t be increased further. It’s not a great APU for processor-hungry programs and would be disappointing if you try to perform 3D rendering, large data compression and video editing on this laptop. However, it is perfect for typing documents, web browsing with multiple tabs, social media interaction and watching videos. Also, office users can create presentations and work with spreadsheets.

Graphics are managed by integrated Radeon HD 8330 graphics which works with help of system memory. As indicated earlier, HP TouchSmart  15-d020nr is not a gaming laptop. Though, it is possible to run some low end current and older games with decent frame rate but at very low graphical quality settings. Storage is down to a 500GB, 5400RPM hard drive which is little disappointment. However, considering its sale price ($370 at Staples, President Day sale) there is nothing to regret.
