HP Pavilion 15-N228US is a modern everyday things type of computer with nice looks and a great price tag. The technical specs and features overall seem to be above average, is lightweight and slim, comes with decent amounts of system memory and hard drive, offering 4.25 hours battery life.

HP Pavilion has an AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 processor at 2 GHz speed (2MB L2 Cache), 6GB DDR3L SDRAM- 2 DIMM, 750 GB hard drive at 5400 rpm with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection and Windows 8.1 operating system.. AMD A6-5200 is a mid-2013 model quad core 'system on a chip' with the Kabini codename. It doesn't come with a Turbo Boost function and the speed is clocked at 2 GHz, which is satisfactory. Both the 750 GB hard drive and the 6 GB RAM are around 50% more than what you'd find in models at a similar price range.

16-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit display with 1366x768 pixel resolution and AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics with up to 3053MB total graphics memory offers great picture quality with bright colors. You have the DTS Sound+ and double stereo speakers for immersive sound with clear highs and deep bass that gives you the feeling of being in a concert hall. HP TrueVision HD Webcam seems to be great even in dim light, so you get to chat to people live looking your best.

Black and silver color HP Pavilion weighs just 5 pounds with dimensions of 10.16 x 15.18 x 0.89 inches so it is slim, light and portable. It has a comfortable full-size island-style keyboard with numeric keypad. HP CoolSense function makes sure the laptop stays cool on your lap for hours. The 4-cell 41WHr 2.8Ah lithium-ion battery gives you more than 4 hours in normal use before having to recharge. Connectivity options include 2 USB 3.0 ports for super quick transfers of data, 1 USB 2.0 port, 802.11b/g/n WLAN wireless, 10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector, SuperMulti DVD burner, 1 Headphone-out/microphone-in combo jack, an HDMI port to connect to your large screen HDTV, Multi-format digital media card reader for Secure Digital cards, HP TrueVision HD camera with built-in microphone but there is no Bluetooth and this can be sorted with a simple USB dongle you can get to a few bucks.

Conclusion: The cool looking silver cover HP Pavilion 15-N228US should be considered as an upgrade to the n028us model. The AMD quad core A6-5200 is not your super capable advanced gaming type of processor but sure is good enough to handle your day-to-day tasks- things will run smoothly with also the help of 6 GB of RAM. The 750 GB hard drive should be plenty of space for most people to store all their files. At the price it is offered, this seems like a good value for money type of laptop that is suitable for everyday use. It also comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.
