HP 15-ay091ms Signature Edition Notebook (15.6″, Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD)



The HP 15-ay091ms Signature Edition is a 15.6″ touchscreen notebook PC, currently exclusively sold by Microsoft Store. It is a budget laptop, but it still delivers very decent specifications. For $400, the HP 15-ay091ms offers a lower-mid-range Intel Core i3 processor, capacious system memory, and a large hard disk drive.

Yes, the display is touch-enabled with 10-finger input support, but other than that it isn’t an impressive LCD panel. You get the common and mediocre pixel count of 1366-by-768 pixels. IPS technology which enables wide viewing angles is missing on this model. Besides touchscreen input, you can work on the 15-ay091ms using the built-in keyboard with numeric pad and multi-touch trackpad with dedicated buttons for left and right clicks.

Under the hood, this plastic-covered notebook carries the 6th Generation Intel Core i3-6100U dual-core processor, 8GB RAM, a 1-Terabyte hard disk drive with Windows 10 Home OS installed, a DVD writer, and a 3-cell 31 WHr battery. The i3-6100U is a quite capable processor. The chip can handle all the usual tasks an average user might throw at it, be it Internet stuff, productivity applications, or media consumption. The CPU features built-in Intel HD 520 graphics processor. The HD 520 enables you to play some of the popular PC games, but certainly not the latest hardware-demanding blockbusters. For more info on the HD 520 capabilities, you can check out this review. The capacious 8GB RAM ensures no seatbacks when it comes to multitasking, while the 1TB HDD offers ample of storage space for your audio & video libraries and other files. When you’re off the electrical grid, the laptop is powered by a 31 WHr battery. It’s not a great battery capacity, but nevertheless the 15-ay091ms is officially claimed to provide a very good battery life of “up to 6 hours and 15 minutes”.
