The HP 15-BS113DX is an affordable mainstream 15.6-inch notebook PC with touch-screen. The 400-dollar 15-BS113DX is very similar to the 500-dollar 15-BS115DX. The only difference between the two is the processor. The 15-BS113DX features the 8th Generation Intel Core 3-8130U dual-core CPU, whereas the BS115DX includes faster quad-core i5-8250U. In both cases, the chips are excellent choices for the daily computing tasks, with minor performance difference during these duties. However, the latter provides additional power which is noticeable during heavy computing loads like high-definition video file conversion.

The rest of the specs sheets of these two “Jet Black” plastics-clad laptop models is identical. The both have mediocre HD 1366-by-768 display resolution and TN technology with narrower viewing angles than IPS. But touch input support is a nice perk in the price range of the laptops. The screen is managed by the Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics. It’s a basic graphics solution, but capable of running many of the most popular game titles today. Furthermore, the 15-BS113DX (and BS115DX) includes 8GB of system memory and a 1-Terabyte hard drive. These are standard RAM and storage capacities in the budget mid-range notebook category. As for the battery, the laptop has a relatively small 31 WHr unit. HP claims the 15-BS113DX can provide a battery life of up to “8.25” hours. That’s probably measured with very little computing load involved, so you can assume the battery life will be shorter during normal PC use – probably around 5 hours.

    Is it a good purchase for school ? Like we are not hearing of it lately like it didnt pop as previous models and is it good in way that would last for 7 years of studiying in university ?

    • Danijel Z

      Hi, no one can tell for sure if this model will be sturdy enough for 7 years of use. But generally, business laptops are more durable than consumer-oriented laptops such as the HP 15-BS113DX. So, chances are that a business notebook, such as one of the HP EliteBook or Lenovo ThinkPad series, is a better bet for a long lasting use.

      As for performance of the 15-BS113DX, it is suitable for study tasks, unless they are related to demanding duties like 3D modeling, engineering, and such.

    Can it run games like Fortnite and PUBG (at very low setting)?

    • Danijel Z

      Hi, I have tested Fortnite on a laptop with the same the Intel 620 UHD graphics, but on a faster i5-8250U processor and with dual-channel memory. The game worked decently – 30-50 fps on low settings and 720p resolution. Now, since this laptop has slower Core i3 and apparently a single-channel RAM, performance will be worse on it. If you install another RAM stick to get dual-channel RAM than performance should be quite similar to what I got, but still somewhat weaker. You can see my test in this review (the last video on the page is Fortnite): https://laptoping.com/gpus/product/intel-uhd-620-graphics-review/
      As for PUBG, I haven’t tested that game.

    Does it come with a tpm chip?

    • Danijel Z

      Danijel Z

      No, this model doesn’t have a TPM chip.

    Is there 2 memory slots to up grade to ,say 16 GB. It sounds like there is only 1 menory slot.

    • Danijel Z

      I’m not able to find info on 15-BS113DX RAM slots on the official HP site, but for the very similar 15-BS115DX from the same HP 15 series I have previously found that it has two slots. So I’m pretty much sure the BS113DX has two slots, too.

      RAM of these laptops isn’t a “Customer Self-Repair Part”, according to the official HP site. It’s an “Authorized Service Provider Part”. This means that upgrading RAM yourself can void the warranty, so you should check with your seller whether you’re allowed to upgrade RAM yourself.
