It has the good quality HP TrueVision HD webcam so you can comfortably chat live with your friends. The DTS Studio Sound will help offer decent quality- full, loud and clear sound with deep bass and nice overall listening experience when you’re playing songs or videos. Turbo silver HP 15-ay191ms is made of all plastic but is sturdy enough and is sleek and modern enough, weighs 4.6 pounds with the measurements of 15.12 x 10.02 x 0.95 inches- is lightweight and portable with also decent battery life from its 31WHr 3-cell lithium-ion battery. It is easy to set up and you’ll appreciate that there is no junkware that you need to uninstall, unlike on majority of new laptops and will run smoothly straight out of the box. There is no backlighting on the keyboard but the keys feel nice to type on and includes a 10-key numpad and a not so great trackpad with left and right buttons. For the lower price point, this is a pretty good machine with very modern specs and overall mid-range specs and good connectivity, along with a responsive touchscreen with a reasonable image quality. Good value computer that we recommend, especially if you’re on a budget.
