Benefits

– Obviously have a large 17.3 inch display for some is going to be its biggest asset and it is hard to argue that the picture quality is not better on a screen of this size
– HP has made sure not to under power this model either by including the Intel Core i5 processor along with 8 GB of memory, It will easily power through a typical users daily tasks without breaking a sweat
– For those that love to save anything and everything the large 1 TB SATA drive will have you covered
– For gaming the AMD Radeon 520 graphics card is able to keep up with most modern games with its 2 GB of integrated memory

Downsides

– Being that it is a large display laptop that weight is unsurprisingly on the heavy side as it tips the scales at 2.7 KG making it somewhat awkward to carry while on the go
– One improvement could have been the addition of an SSD drive instead of SATA which would have improved boot times and overall performance
– Unlike many of the 17.3 inch laptops available this one does not have an optical drive

Verdict

The HP 17-bs029na is a 17.3 inch model that has some power along with a long lasting battery that will keep you on the go for an extended period of time even if it is a bit on the heavy side. For those wanting a large display laptop this one seems to be a very nice choice.
