HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-n071nr is a touch screen laptop which comes with powerful AMD 5745M Accelerated Processor. Along with everyday computing, this 15.6” laptop offers performance for gaming as well. It doesn’t offer a dedicated graphics card with video memory but the integrated graphics card coming with this Touchsmart laptop is capable of delivering performance like any mid-end discrete graphics card. HP 15-n071nr comes with massive 1 TB hard drive and 8 GB memory to enhance overall computing performance. Just under 1” thin, this HP model manages to hold a DVD burner as optical drive. VGA port is missing in Pavilion 15-n071nr, which seems to be the trend after introduction of HDMI port in laptops. It does come with USB 3.0 port. The price of this new laptop is around $500 (available at Office Depot).
HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-n071nr specification and performance
HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-n071nr is equipped with AMD A10-5745M accelerated processor which is a quad core processor. The Accelerated processor or APU operates with basic frequency of 2.1 GHz and the frequency can boost up to 2.9 GHz, on system demand. When it comes to graphics, the laptop offers AMD Radeon HD 8610G graphics which is an integrated graphics but is comparable with any middle class discrete graphics card. The graphics can run almost all current games and stream HD videos flawlessly. However, HP 15-n071nr is not suitable for high end video editing. The APU is integrated with 4MB of L2 cache. L2 cache is much faster than L3 cache, which enhance the processing power. It also supports photo editing, casual video editing and light 3D designing. As told in my earlier post (HP Pavilion 15-N066US), Games like Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham Origins, Fifa 14, Dota 2, Gird 2 Total War: Rome II etc can be played in medium settings. Older games like StarCraft II and World of warcraft can be played in higher settings.
