The HP 15-bs289wm is an affordable yet decently-equipped laptop with a 15.6″ touchscreen. The touch display has a basic HD-class picture resolution (sharpness) and TN-class narrow viewing angles. Inside its plastic “Jet Black” chassis, the HP 15-bs289wm packs an entry-level Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core processor with basic Intel UHD 605 integrated graphics processor, a modest 4GB RAM size, and a spacious but slow 1-Terabyte hard drive.

HP claims the 15-bs289wm can provide a battery life of up to 7 hours with mixed computer usage.

Overall, if you want a cheap touch-screen laptop for the day-to-day computing chores and you are not a hard-core gamer, videographer, or photo editor, the HP 15-bs289wm can be good choice for you. Granted, the notebook lacks some features of pricier laptops, such as sharp Full HD resolution, IPS wide viewing angles, fast SSD storage, and keyboard backlight. Furthermore, the included Pentium Silver N5000 processor with 4GB RAM doesn’t provide perfectly snappy Windows experience like with the popular Intel Core i3/i5/i7 series chips with now-standard 8GB RAM. But the 15-bs289wm is a great notebook PC if you take into consideration its Black Friday price of only $260 at Walmart.

Usual starting price: around 260 USD* as of November 8, 2018.
