If you are making the move from a desktop PC or just prefer plenty of viewing area on your device than a 17.3 inch laptop is probably an option you are seriously considering. Unfortunately many new 17.3 inch models can get quite expensive but luckily that isn’t the case with the all new HP 17-ak024na which actually has a budget friendly price while still delivering a large 17.3 inch display. Below we are going to review this laptop a bit closer and see what some of its biggest benefits and downsides are.
Check out the latest price for the HP 17-ak024na (2CR96EA#ABU)
Processor: AMD A12
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 17.3 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– The AMD A12 is a very capable processor but much more budget friendly than your typical Intel which is one of the ways that HP has been able to release this device at such a budget friendly price
– For many one of the reasons that they prefer the big screen is to play the latest games and the AMD Radeon 530 has 4 GB of dedicated memory to handle the intense graphics modern games come out with
– If your storage needs are high the large 1 TB SATA is a great asset and should cover your needs easily
– 8 hours of battery life on a single charge is quite impressive for a laptop of this size and for some will actually get them through a full day without needing to recharge
– The large 17.3 inch display makes this laptop a bit bigger and bulkier than your typical laptop and at 2.6 KG it can get heavy when travelling for extended periods of time
– With only 4 GB of memory available in this setup it really impacts performance and will be a noticeable downsides for many users
Some corners had to be cut on the HP 17-ak024na in order to bring the price down as low as they have but for those that mainly want a large display it is still a nice affordable option.
