The HP 15-ac121dx 15.6-inch notebook offers a touchscreen display, good Intel Core i3 processor, and large system memory and hard drive sizes at an affordable price of $400.
As same as other budget laptops, the 15-ac121dx from the HP 15t series has a typical screen resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels, as opposed to sharper Full HD 1920-by-1080 you can find on pricier systems. IPS technology for wider viewing angles is missing, too, but inclusion of the touchscreen at this price point is a nice perk. Computing and the display’s pixels are powered by the 5th Generation Intel Core i3-5010U dual-core processor with mid-range performance and its Intel HD 5500 integrated graphics. They provide smooth performance in routine computing tasks like websurf, work in Microsoft Office applications, multimedia playback, and playing non-demanding games. To ensure seamless multitasking, HP has included 6GB of RAM memory instead of usual 4GB. As for storage, the 15-ac121dx comes with a capacious 1-Terabyte hard drive, double the size of an average 500GB HDD.
Rounding off this cheap but well equipped laptop, HP has provided a built-in DVD writer drive, stereo speakers, a VGA web camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi wireless, Ethernet LAN network port, two USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 port, HDMI video output jack, combo mic/headphones audio jack, an a media card reader. Although some images of the laptop show it has a VGA video port, it is not listed in its specs sheets.
