The HP Pavilion 15z (5MU54AV_1, 2019) is a mid-range Windows laptop with a touch-enabled display as a standout feature. The 5MU54AV_1 is a configurable model on the HP Store.

The touch-screen can be either an HD TN panel or a Full HD IPS panel with better picture sharpness and wider viewing angles.

Instead of more common Intel processors, the HP Pavilion 15z 5MU54AV_1 incorporates AMD processor options – the Ryzen 5 3500U or Ryzen 7 3700U. Both processors are sufficient for completely smooth completion of the daily home and office computing tasks, with the Ryzen 7 being slightly faster. They are also good solutions for occasional heavier tasks like video and photo edits, but still they are not workstation-class processors. The chips include the AMD Radeon Vega integrated graphics processors (Vega 8 on the Ryzen 5 and slightly better Vega 10 on Ryzen 7) that enable you to play light PC games and some more demanding titles on low detail settings. RAM size is 16GB which is a plenty for comfortable multi-tasking. Data storage options include a 265GB or a 512GB solid state drive, or you can select a combo of a small 128GB SSD and a capacious 1TB hard drive for a good balance between speed and storage space.

The notebook comes with a 41 WHr battery. That’s a mediocre capacity, but it should provide at least around 5 hours of autonomy with lighter laptop use.

Another important feature is keyboard backlight, but it is only optional.
