HP Jaguar 15-bs060wm Review

HP Jaguar 15-bs060wm is an Intel core i3-7100u powered laptop. The laptop comes with everything a user would need to accomplish day to day computing tasks. It comes with options for expandability, such as upgradeable RAM. However, the laptop is preinstalled for 8GB DDR4 RAM which is sufficient for day to day computing tasks and occasional photo and video editing.  HP 15-bs060wm laptop is basically designed for home users. This laptop doesn’t come with backlit keyboard and has low resolution display ( 1366 X 768) which is not a Full HD display ( 1920 X 1080)p. Full HD display offers more accurate colors so  it can enhance your video watching experience. Thus, if you are looking for a laptop for home use, you can consider Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575-33BM which is also powered by Intel core i3-7100u processor but offers backlit keyboard and full HD display. However, it comes with 4GB RAM (expandable up to 32GB). Both the laptops come with inbuilt CD/DVD drive. None of these laptops are suitable for serious gaming. Latest games like Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and Prey are not playable in this machine but you can run old games like Minecraft on this machine. You may still need to adjust settings and resolution.

These laptops lack dedicated graphics and Intel HD 620 graphics is the only graphics option. The graphics uses system memory and you can’t upgrade graphics as it is the part of the Intel core i3-7100u processor.  If you want a budget gaming laptop, you can consider Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 which is powered by more powerful Intel core i5-7200u processor and NVIDIA Geforce 940MX discrete graphics with 2GB video memory.  It also has 8GB DDR4 RAM and 256GB Solid State Drive.

Solid state Drives are much faster than traditional 5400rpm hard drives which you will find in HP Jaguar 15-bs060wm or 1KV13UA#ABA.  The i5-7200u processor operates with 2.5GHZ frequency and, on system demand, the frequency can rise up to 3.1GHz.  On the other hand, i3-7100u operates with 2.4GHZ and the frequency can’t rise further as it does not support turbo boost technology. Again, Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 has full HD display and backlit keyboard while HP 15-bs060wm comes with standard 1366 X 768 display and non-backlit keyboard.

HP 15-bs060wm is installed with 8 GB RAM arranged in two slots and the memory is expandable up to 16GB RAM.  The 1TB 5400rpm hard drive is preinstalled with Windows 10 operating system. If you want to speed up your booting process or uploading, you can replace the hard drive with a Solid State Drive.

HP Jaguar 15-bs060wm offers standard ports and connectivity features, which include 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Data transfer only), 1 USB 2.0, 1 HDMI, 1 RJ-45 and 1 headphone/microphone combo. It has SD card reader and integrated 720p webcam. The network connectivity is supported by Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.2. The laptop comes with removable battery. The 3-cell, 31 Wh Li-ion offers up to 5 hours of battery backup, depending upon usage.
