Pavilion has been a long time popular and reliable line of laptops from HP and the latest to hit the market is the HP Pavilion 15-n084ca. This model fits nicely in the lower cost mid-range of laptops, Providing more power and features then you would find in a budget model but at the same time priced low enough for the most budget minded person. While it may be missing some of the big name features such as touchscreen it more then makes up for in power and performance, Today we will take a bit closer look at this Pavilion model from HP and see just how it stacks up.
HP Pavilion 15-n084ca Specifications
Processor: AMD Elite Quad-Core A10-5745M 2.1 Ghz
Ram: 8 GB DDR3L

Screen: 15.6 Inches

Benefits of the HP Pavilion 15-n084ca
We love how much power HP has been able to stuff into this model and still keep the price as low as they have. Starting with the very powerful AMD Elite Quad-core processor which is perfect for the multi-tasking user or anybody who wants to be able to run some of the higher end applications without slowing there computer down to a crawl. Also a great processor is only good if it has enough memory to back it up, And luckily HP has also provided a full 8 GB of DDR3L memory to do just this.
One thing that was expected after seeing the specifications that they have been able to put in this model is that there would have been some big corners cut in other areas to help keep the price down, But we didn’t find much. Would the laptop be big and bulky? No, it still comes it at only 2.29 KG and a very slim 2.26cm with the lid closed. To add to this the typical ports you would expect in any mid-range model are also here, Such as 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output and even a numeric keypad for the number crunchers.
Downsides of the HP Pavilion 15-n084ca
As mentioned in the opening the only noticeable ommission from this model is the lack of a touchscreen. With more and more models coming out that include this feature it is just a matter of time before it comes standard. At this point though it doesn’t seem like everybody has come around to the idea of touch on there laptop device as non-touchscreen models still continue to sell quite well. While this would still be considered a downside, If you are one of the many that haven’t embraced this technology yet it probably won’t really factor into your decision to much.
Verdict on the HP Pavilion 15-n084ca
The verdict on the HP Pavilion 15-n084ca seems pretty straight forward, If you want touchscreen on your new purchase there are plenty of other models on the market that can do this and some that are not priced much more then the HP Pavilion 15-n084ca. On the other hand if touchscreen is not your thing this is a perfect fit, Plenty of horsepower to do just about anything and with a reliable line like Pavilion you can rest assured you are buying a quality laptop.
