It was earlier this year when the MacBook Air set a trend and became the first laptop to make use of the Haswell chip, and since then we have seen a range of laptops benefit from this more powerful, energy-efficient processor. HP is a brand that has embraced this new chip and what is even better, they have included it in some of its cheaper models.
One such model is the HP Pavilion 17-e019dx 17.3-inch laptop, which is one in the eye for MacBook Pro fans, as they were hoping to see a return to the 17-inch model sporting the new Haswell processor, but it didn’t happen this year – maybe 2014?
The HP Pavilion 17.3-inch laptop has impressed us with its specs because they are far better than you would imagine considering its price range. You not only get a 2.4GHz fourth-generation i3 processor, but also 4GB of DDR3L SDRAM, a decent sized 750GB hard drive, Intel HD Graphics 4600, and even a DVD±RW/CD-RW drive, something that has been left out of a load of new laptops.
However, the standout HP Pavilion 17-e019dx 17.3-inch laptop features are the LED-backlit HD display with BrightView technology and the bundled software, which consists of CyberLink PowerDirector, PhotoDirector and PowerDVD – yes people still use the latter.
