It has a Passmark benchmark score of 9008 which makes it an advanced processor to handle most daily and demanding tasks.

16GB DDR4 SDRAM memory (2 x 8GB) at 2666MHz offers a good amount of multitasking power for most computer users. You can have many browser tabs, videos, apps running simultaneously and not experience any delays or freezing. But what’s lacking here is a Solid State Drive and instead you have a large 1TB storage space (HDD SATA hard drive at 5400rpm rotating speed) that will come in handy for gamers that save a lot of games and those with a lot of multimedia files. You can always replace it with an SSD drive by paying a little more.

15.6″ WLED-backlit touchscreen Full HD display has the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution with the vibrant colors and great contrast.

There is a dedicated graphics card on this machine, the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 with a videocard benchmark score of 2576 at the time of this product review. It is a bit faster than the older generation MX150 and you can play the modern demanding games at lower settings and resolutions.

HP Wide Vision HD is a decent laptop webcam for your live chats or still photos and comes with the dual built-in digital microphone. Decent sound quality is provided by the Bang & Olufsen Play Audio and two built-in speakers. If you don’t have very high expectations, you’ll be happy with the sound on this modern laptop.

It has a full-size island style cloud blue backlit keyboard for you to type or play comfortably in the dim light or dark. And there is a convenient numeric keyboard if you’ll be doing some number crunching. Fog blue HP Pavilion 15-cs3073cl weighs 4.23 pounds and measures 14.24 x 9.67 x 0.7 inches- is slim and portable. It has a 3-cell 41 Wh lithium ion battery that offers an average battery life of up to 8.5 hours depending on use. It is a powerful laptop with a powerful tenth generation processor and other technical specs that can easiy handle tasks like photo editing and some gaming. The only thing missing here is an SSD and the 1TB HDD at 5400rpm that it comes with lacks the speed. Good value for money overall!
