The HP 15-DA0071MS is an affordable 15.6-inch touchscreen laptop featuring the the 7th Generation Intel Core i3-7100U lower-mid-range dual-core processor with the basic Intel HD 620 graphics, 8GB RAM, a 1-Terabyte hard drive, and a built-in DVD writer.
The touch-enabled display has a lower-end HD-class picture sharpness and narrower viewing angles than on screens with IPS technology. It is accompanied by a non-backlit keyboard.
According to HP, the 15-DA0071MS with its medium-capacity 41 WHr battery has a battery life of “up to 11.25 hours”. That was probably measured under a light computing load.
Overall, the 15-DA0071MS is just an average budget-class plastic-clad laptop with added touchscreen. But, it is perfectly suitable for the daily computing activities thanks to the decent Core i3 chip and 8GB RAM. The laptop will be sold for only $299 during Microsoft Store’s Black Friday sales. That’s a very good deal. If you want a bit faster Core i5-7200U processor and a larger 2-Terabyte hard drive, you can also check out the 15-DA0073MS model which will be on sale for $349.
