The HP 15t 5HH94AV_1 ‘Best Value’ laptop is a popular model, because it has a prominent place in HP’s 2019 Black Friday lineup. For $449 (during Black Friday sales on HP Store), the basic HP 15t 5HH94AV_1 configuration delivers a budget-class HD display without IPS wide viewing angles, the 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor with the Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics, excellent for the daily computing tasks and good for light gaming, decently-sized 8GB of system memory for seamless multi-tasking, and low-capacity but fast 128GB solid state drive-based storage.

Also, you can get larger 12GB or 16GB RAM size.

      SVA in HP’s terminology means “standard viewing angles” as opposed to wide viewing angles. Depending on an angle of view, picture on SVA screens (based on TN technology) may appear washed out or colors can look inverted. That’s why I always recommend laptops with wide viewing angle screens based on IPS technology.
