Style and Substance — HP Pavilion 15-aw068nr

Computing Featured Products Technology


Do you know that feeling you get when you’re at an airport baggage carousel waiting for your inconspicuous black suitcase to make its way down the conveyor belt, only to realize that the other 30 people standing around you are also waiting for their inconspicuous black luggage? All I’m really saying here is what we think of as classic and utilitarian may just as well be thought of as horribly overdone.

The personal computer equivalent of the ubiquitous black rolling suitcase is the nondescript silver laptop. You might be reading this very post on one right now, and that’s ok. But what if you’re looking for something with a little more style, a little more pizazz?

AMD—GeekDad’s newest sponsor—has just the thing: the HP Pavilion 15-aw068nr.

Starting at a scant $450, this is a powerful portable computer that won’t cost you and arm and a leg. Its sizeable 1TB hard drive and AMD Radeon R5 GPU, combined with an AMD 7th Gen A9-9410 Dual-Core APU processor, give you (or your resident student) everything needed to complete all that important schoolwork, work-work, and maybe even a little non-work. Better still, you can do it all with ease thanks to this machine’s handsome 15.6-inch, 1366×768 HD touch-screen interface—and the 7.5-hour battery life means you won’t even have to rush!

The true clincher, though, is this Pavilion’s Sport Purple color motif. With contrasting Ash accents, this laptop is just like you: fun and unique without compromising power or substance.
