This is a review for HP 15-R006TU laptop. This laptop has 4th Generation Intel Core i3-4010U processor, 4GB of RAM, Intel HD 4400 Graphics, 500GB hard drive space, 15.6-inch LED Backlit screen which has a resolution of 1366 x 768.
I bought this laptop from Amazon.in for Rs. 25801 on 11th August, 2014. Speed of the laptop is very good, I noticed a big difference as I have a desktop at my home which has an Intel Pentium dual core bought in 2010. Laptop came with MS DOS preinstalled and I installed Windows 7 ultimate from a copy I had. Keyboard has excellent shape and feel, which I wasn’t expecting from this mid-range laptop. Screen is also very good when showing coloured images but when it shows dark screen it very uneven distribution of brightness and looks awful. Viewing angles are decent but not great. Laptop has a HDMI out, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet port and a SD card slot.
Cons of this laptop includes drivers availability on official HP website. Laptop page only mentions 64 bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8 and not 32 bit versions. I had to download 32 bit versions of its drives from drivers page of HP ProBook 450 G1 Notebook PC. Drivers can be downloaded from this link
All drivers except audio drivers will work. Audio drivers can be downloaded from official Realtek audio drivers download page.
Overall at Rs. 25801 it is a total value for money laptop as same laptop was priced Rs. 27500-30000/- on lamington Road, Mumbai shops and also Rs. 26500 on Snapdeal and Rs. 30000 on Flipkart. This is a highly recommended laptop by me as this is the cheapest Intel i3 4th gen laptop in market and total bang for bucks.
