This laptop has some great specs and then you look at that screen resolution… yikes.
+1 for what Nathan said about screen resolution. But also… No SSD?! And a 5400 rpm one at that? With a slow hard drive, all that RAM and new processor are completely wasted.
It’s like some HP exec right at the peak of the computer shortage decided a bunch of old people who were gamers but had poor eyesight would need laptops. And this is the surplus.
For those complaining about resolution and drive. This is definitely not a gaming laptop. It has good specs for a work laptop. Not “workstation”, but work. There are applications that benefit from a good processor. Like number crunching apps. This would be good for people that do no graphics but need a fast processor for numbers on the go. Accounting, actuary work, math, engineering (non-graphics related), etc.
