The HP 15-dy1771ms is a popular model from the HP 15 15.6-inch laptop PC series, because it is a part of Microsoft Store’s Black Friday 2019 lineup.
The HP 15-dy1771ms has a very fast 10th Generation Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor, decent system memory size of 8GB, and a fast 512GB solid state drive with a plenty of storage space. The components enable a very smooth user experience under Windows 10, even with multiple programs running at the same time. The Core i7-1065G7 offers extra computing power in comparison to the Intel Core i5-1035G1 and i3-1005G1 you can find in similar but cheaper HP 15-dy1751ms and 15-dy1731ms laptops. All of these processors can very easily handle the daily home and office computing chores, but additional power of the i5 and especially i7 can be handy during intensive processing scenarios like audio and video production. Furthermore, the i7-1065G7 has a much better integrated graphics processor, which is responsible for gaming performance. Its Intel Iris Plus G7 IGP is noticeably faster than the Intel UHD G1 series of the i3 and i5 chips. However, they are all quite basic graphics processors, suitable for light gaming and maybe some demanding game titles on low graphics settings.
Despite having great internals, the HP 15-dy1771ms still belongs to the budget-class HP 15 laptop series. So, it’s not a surprise this otherwise excellently equipped notebook has a chassis made of plastics and a very basic display. The screen has a low 1366-by-768 HD resolution, without great picture sharpness of Full HD or higher-resolution displays. Also, the panel is based on TN technology, meaning noticeably narrower viewing angles than on the IPS screens.
Furthermore, the laptop comes with a mediocre 41 WHr battery capacity. Considering the capacity and other specs, you can expect a battery life of around 5 hours, with “normal” computing tasks involved.
The HP 15-dy1771ms will be priced at $499 during the Black Friday sales on Microsoft Store.
Usual starting price: around 699 USD* as of November 23, 2019.
