Conclusion: HP makes quality solid computers and this HP Pavilion 15-p030nr is not different, easily as one of the best laptop computers on the market for its price: It is very easy on the eyes, comes with great technical specs that allow it to run fast in many things you do on a daily basis and more complex tasks, is easy to set-up, has a backlit keyboard with a 10-key numeric pad, has an intuitive and responsive touchscreen, offers great entertainment with dual speakers and a subwoofer. Some people would still prefer the older Windows 7 and will criticise this laptop for having Windows 8 but the 8.1 version really is a shorter learning curve and the software that comes preloaded on it could be less but some of it you may still find useful. It comes with a 12 month limited parts and labor warranty including a toll-free technical and limited software support in three languages- Spanish, French and English.
