Delicate design, bold quality office
Not too unfamiliar with the plastic case with a yellow brass finish, the HP 15-bs573TU is not as thin as the Ultrabooks, nor is it a gaming benchmark, which gives us a “moderate” look.
The HP 15-bs573TU laptop is 2.82mm thick, so it has all the necessary ports like 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 SD card slot, 1 LAN port, 1 HDMI port, 1 charger port, 1 CD reader and 1 3.5mm headphone jack. This is not too unfamiliar with midrange models.
The inside of the keyboard has a nice, wavy texture.
The HP 15-bs573TU is lightweight but weighs less than 2 kg, so carrying or moving is also very convenient and easy, even fits well in women’s bags and not too cumbersome. Let’s take a look at some pictures of this machine.
The screen is anti-glare good, displaying wide and sharp
The 15-inch display is so popular in the same segment of laptops, so the 15-inch 15-bs573TU is equipped with a 15.6-inch widescreen display for comfortable viewing of movies and news.
In detail, the 15.6-inch widescreen display also features FullHD (1920×1080) resolution and LED backlit technology for crisp, sharp images.
In addition, with bright conditions, the screen can resist the glare pretty well with not too much color difference.
When talking about the keyboard of the Hp 15-bs573TU, the keyboard has good bounce, the keys are made bigger and wider for smooth operation. However, the keyboard does not have a backlight, so operating in low light or night conditions will be difficult.
Another plus point of the keyboard is the integrated numpad for easy user operation is more convenient.
About the trackpad of the machine, I appreciate it, because it responds well with just a slight touch of fingers when used. However, the trackpad still supports Multi-Touch with basic operations.
For me, this is very necessary because I will need an external mouse.
Large loudspeaker, clear sound, no shaking
For midrange models, most will not be too polished on the speaker, but the HP 15-bs573TU HP makes me feel impressed; the loudspeakers’ loud sound, treble And the bass are very clear and even.
When I use the most deafening volume, the speakers do not shake or snatch, it is also a point that makes me very impressed with this laptop.
The HP 15-bs573TU is configured for mid-range gaming with the i5-7200U (2.5 GHz) core and the HD Graphic 620 onboard graphics card for the needs of lightweight gaming and office productivity. Because this is a U-series energy-saving chips, so you will evaluate the performance of the machine quite well.
The 4 GB of RAM and 1 TB of internal memory make it easy to store personal and multitasking information.
For real performance, I try to test through two popular online games such as Alliance and Strike the machine results in quite a level. With the Alliance (low configuration), the machine works well at frame rates ranging from 50 ~ 60 FPS. Also, the frame rate is 80 ~ 115 FPS. Thereby we can conclude that the machine can entertain with lightweight works and good office use.
Battery life, heat dissipation
The most important of the models in this segment is the battery life, which is the biggest minus of this laptop.
I task the battery from 100%, and after 2 hours of browsing, it dropped to 30%. This is because the machine is only equipped with a 4 cell battery, so I’m a little disappointed about this.
However, the heat dissipation of the HP 15-bs573TU is very good, despite the continuous game the machine is not heating up. The laptop only has a heatsink on the left side, but the temperature is very good. I’m really impressed with this.
At $720, this laptop is suitable for students to use for study, work, and light entertainment. Although the 15-bs573TU‘s battery is not impressive, the experience with screen, sound, performance also makes this laptop really worthy to buy.
