Pros

  • Quad Core processor
  • Large storage space
  • Touchscreen display

Cons

  • HP Bloatware
  • No VGA
  • Stiff trackpad

Bottom Line

The HP 15-ba030nr is a sturdy budget laptop with decent hardware, ample storage space and a responsive touchscreen display. But there is loads of HP bloatware pre-installed and will need to be removed.

The HP 15-ba030nr is a bestselling 2016 laptop that has been praised for its great value for the money and for its touchscreen display. While it may not be the most powerful hardware on the market, the Quad Core AMD processor will handle most day-to-day tasks with ease. While it will run older and classic titles, the Radeon graphics chip will struggle with newer titles while still offering frame rates of above 30fps. Ample storage space is provided by the 1TB mechanical hard drive, but users who after more performance over the 5400rpm drive can upgrade to a solid state drive for under $200. Users have mentioned a stiff trackpad and loads of bloatware that need to be removed for better performance.
