    HP Laptop Pavilion 15 AU118CA Review


    HP Pavilion 15 AU118CA 15.6 inch Laptop Review One way to squeeze a little bit more power out of a typical laptop setup is to improve the speed in which the system can access all of the critical files it needs to do its daily tasks and where is all of that stored?

    On the hard drive of course. That’s why replacing the older SATA technology with a much faster SSD that lacks any moving parts has a very positive effect on performance and that is exactly what they have done with the HP Pavilion 15-AU118CA.

    Below we are going to check out this and other features of the latest Pavilion to hit the market and see just how well it stacks up.

    HP Pavilion 15 AU118CA Benefits

    While the option to go with an SSD in the HP Pavilion 15-AU118CA over a SATA drive does bring down the total storage capacity. But it seems to be well worth it to get the extra performance that this technology can offer. The SSD is not the only piece of hardware keeping this laptop running smooth.

    The combination of an Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB of memory means this device can easily keep up with a heavy workload without getting bogged down.

    2 USB 3.0 ports along with another one running on the older USB 2.0 speeds gives you 3 ports altogether for your external USB devices to go along with other main features such as HDMI and Bluetooth technology.

    HP Pavilion 15 AU118CA Downsides

    The lack of touchscreen for some will be a big negative against the HP Pavilion 15-AU118CA. While plenty of consumers still enjoy interacting with their laptop the old fashion way it is always disappointing to miss out on newer technology.

    HP has kept the optical drive intact for those who need to use physical media and would prefer not to have an external device. But it seems to add unnecessary weight for consumers that have moved past this older technology.

    HP Pavilion 15 AU118CA Verdict

    A well performing laptop with a blazing SSD is the best way to describe the HP Pavilion 15-AU118CA.

    Another big plus for it is the fact it lacks any really big negatives making it a machine that will do well among the average consumer and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it as a top seller.
