Black HP 15-d053cl TouchSmart is a great HD Touchscreen laptop sutable for work and entertainment with its 3rd generation processor power and 6GB memory and being certified refurbished it is offered at a much more affordable price and comes with all the original as well as 3 month warranty by the manufacturer.

HP 15-d053cl TouchSmart comes with the dual core Intel i3-3120M (3 MB L3-Cache) at 2.5 GHz fixed speed no turbo boost but with hyperthreading (2 cores handling 4 threads in parallel) , 6GB DDR3L SDRAM (2 DIMM) memory to multitask efficiently, 750GB hard drive at 5400rpm rotating speed as ample storage for media and common files and with fast read and write times and 64-bit Windows 8.1 operating system with additonal features and familiar screen and Start button for those that are used to Windows 7 and there is no upgrading from Windows 8 is needed as it already comes preinstalled with Windows 8.1.

15.6-inch LED-backlit diagonal high definition BrightView touchscreen display with 1366x768 pixel resolution and Intel HD graphics 4000 means great visuals overall but not much gaming performance in terms of the latest games at higher settings but is quite all right for casual gamers playing lighter games. Capacitive touch display is good for easy navigation on Windows 8 screen- better and more responsive than optical. Webcam is more than adequate- 1MP True Vision with buit-in microphone, high definition for those live Skype chats with friends and family. HD Audio and stereo speakers also offer decent quality sound for a laptop at this level.

Sparkling black HP Touchsmart with glossy finish around the keyboard and touchpad weighs 6.07 pounds and has the measurements of 1.17 x 10.20 x 14.88 inches, you should get up to 5 hours of battery life from its 4-cell lithium ion battery. Full-size island-style keyboard is good for comfortable enough typing with 10-key numpad for easy number crunching. Unlike many modern day laptops it has the SuperMulti DVD burner- Multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive, 802.11bgn wireless, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, Multi-Format Digital Media Card Reader that supports Secure Digital format, 10/100 Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector for wired internet connection, a VGA port and 1x Headphone out/ Microphone-in combo jack.

Conclusion: HP 15-d053cl TouchSmart is a great quality laptop designed mainly for home computing and this specific certified refurbished version is offered at a very affordable price for its processing power and decent specs, even though the i3 processor it comes with is not the latest, it is more than sufficient for performing any of your daily tasks smoothly also with the help of the 6GB memory that is plenty for multitasking with no major lags but can be upgraded to a maximum of 16GB on is two slots (2 x 8GB). Processor is better utilized thanks to the hyperthreading function with dual cores handling four threads in paralel. Screen quality is good for surfing the internet, watching videos and playing games- but only older games can run fluently at higher resolutions and it almost feels like Full HD- almost as sharp and realistic.
