HP Laptop 15t-DY500 Review

The HP 15t-dy500 certainly knows how to catch your eye, with its cool blue coat of paint (which will run you $10 more than the black model) and a keyboard deck that looks almost alien. But the unique design isn't flawless--it's a fingerprint magnet, and the notebook's glossy makeup makes it more susceptible to scratches than you might expect.

This laptop's screen is protected with micro-louvre technology that restricts visibility to people within 30-degrees of the display, keeping your work private while you're on the go. The display also reduces harmful blue light to ease strain on your eyes. The privacy feature is complemented by full visual clarity, meaning you'll be able to see your content clearly even when you're working in bright environments.

You can get this laptop for about $500, which makes it a great choice if you're looking for a solid entry-level computer that won't break your budget. Its mid-range performance can handle most everyday home and office tasks, and it has some potential for heavier work like professional photo and video editing.

Its nonconvertible clamshell design doesn't include a tablet mode, and it's not the thinnest option in this price range--but the 15t-dy500's sleek build is still easy to carry. And it's no slouch under the hood, with an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. Its only drawback is its bloatware, which is more annoying than helpful. The good news is that you can easily remove most of it with a quick search and removal tool built into Windows.
