HP Pavilion 15-br095ms 2 in 1 PC Review

If you are looking for a big screen 2-in-1 laptop at an affordable price, look no further than HP Pavilion x360 Convertible 15-br095ms 2 in 1 PC.  This laptop incorporates 7th generation Intel Core i5-7200u processor, which has 2 cores, and 8GB DDR4 RAM. Though the laptop comes with a Solid State Drive, it offers very less storage space. It comes with a 128B Solid State Drive but a big part of it is used by Windows 10 OS. The best part of this laptop is that it comes with a dedicated graphics (AMD Radeon 530 with 2GB DDR3 dedicated VRAM) to satisfy gaming enthusiast on the tight budget. HP 15-br095ms is fast enough for all day to day tasks. It supports some HD video editing and 3D designing as well. However, this laptop is not a workstation grade laptop. The 7th gen Intel Core i5-7200u processor has only 2 cores while the 8th gen i5 and i7 SOC processors have 4 cores, with hyperthreading feature.

If you are looking for a 2-in-1 laptop for CPU intensive tasks like HD video editing, 3D modeling, program compilation and music creation, you can consider Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 14 2-in-1 PC. It is powered by Intel core i7-8550u quad-core processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB Solid State Drive. It has discrete NVIDIA Geforce 940MX graphics with 2GB VRAM.

Let us begin with a brief comparison between Intel core i5-7200u and i7-8550u features.

Intel core i5-7200u operates with 2.5GHz of base frequency and its turbo frequency is 3.1GHz. It has 3MB of cache. On the other hand, Intel core i7-8550u operates with base frequency of 1.8GHz and frequency can rise up to 4GHZ. However, base frequency hardly matters as it depends upon workload. Again, the 8th gen i7 has 8MB of cache memory. Thus, for CPU demanding tasks, i7-8550u is preferable over i5-7200u.
