The HP 15-bs020WM is an affordable 15.6-inch touch-screen laptop with Windows 10 Home operating system. During the Black Friday 2017 sales, this model will be offered by Walmart as a “Special Buy” for $249. The notebook features the Intel Pentium N3710 quad-core entry-level processor, 4GB of system memory, a 500GB hard drive, and a DVD writer.
Except touch-screen functionality, the HP 15-bs020WM doesn’t stand out with its specs. It’s a basic 15.6″ Windows notebook with 1366-by-768 HD resolution, TN display panel without IPS-class wide viewing angles, a non-backlit keyboard, and simplistic plastic chassis in black color. Performance of the notebook is entry-level, too. Although it has four cores instead of usual two, the included Intel Celeron Pentium N3710 processor is one of the basic budget-class chips. It’s good only for the daily computing tasks – like web browsing, work on Office documents, movie playback, and so on. It can handle these tasks very good, but user experience would be smoother with one of the Intel Core series CPUs like the i3, i5, or i7. 4GB of system memory is a minimal yet satisfactory size for comfortable multi-tasking in home and office scenarios. The hard drive size of 500GB is the smallest among modern notebook-use HDDs, but it still offers enough space for user’s documents and even some larger files like downloaded movies.
The HP 15-bs020WM has a battery life of up to 7 hours, according to the manufacturer.
Further specifications haven’t been published yet. But, since the 15-bs020WM is basically one of the HP 15(t) 2017 series configurations, it’s safe to assume that the rest of the specs sheet is the same. The HP 15 2017 has stereo speakers, a front camera for video chats, Wi-Fi and Ethernet LAN networking, two USB 3.1 ports and one slower USB 2.0 port, HDMI video out jack, a multi-format media card reader, and a combo audio mic / headphones port. We’ll update this paragraph with the official specs as soon as we receive them.
