HP 15-bs020WM laptop on Walmart Black Friday Deals 2017

November 15th, 2017


The HP's 15-bs020WM will be one of the best laptop deals on the 2017 Black Friday if you could grab one. This is a 15.6-inch touch supported notebook and as usual for laptops of this kind, it comes with Windows 10 Home pre installed.

The processor is Intel Celeron N3710 and comes with 4GB of RAM. The Celeron models are less talked about ( compared to Core i3, i5 and i7) and will spend some time understanding about this processor. Before we do that bear in mind that the laptop comes with 4GB RAM, 500 GB Hard disk and had HDMI port.


The Celeron N3710 is a quad core processor with 1.6 GHz clock frequency and Burst Clock frequency of 2.6 GHz. It is a low power processor intended for thin laptops. The processor performs reasonably well though will not be as fast. For example compared to the core i3-7100U, a popular processor used in expensive think notebooks ( 2 Core, 4 threads 2.4GHz) it is about 1.5 times slower ( of course in processor intensive tasks). But the processor power should not affect other things like browsing and you should be able to feel it.

The other features are not high end but probably you could not ask for anything more in an under $249 laptop.

The stated battery life of 7 hours is decent - probably more than enough you will need in one sitting. This is made possibly with the low power processor. You could possibly get even better if you keep the display at lower brightness.

The 15-bs020WM comes with stereo speakers, and of course the Wifi. And although we do not need the Ethernet now in laptops, it comes with one for wired networking, just in case you need.
There are two USB 3.1 ports and a USB 2.0 port. Also available is a multi-format media card reader, and an audio mic and headphones port.

However, if you are looking to use this laptop for gaming for games that require more of a gaming horsepower, you will be disappointed. The integrated graphics at 400 MHz base clock is just not good enough.

Pros :
- Touch Screen Display.
- Long Battery Life
- Inexpensive

Cons
- Not very fast
- Not for gaming
