The hp 15-bs033cl touchscreen laptop is a solid entry-level machine with enough power to steamroller basic desktop tasks. It also has a large, attractive display, a comfortable keyboard, and an impressive trackpad. However, a sleepy screen and disappointing battery performance weigh down its overall score.

The HP 15-bs033cl's 2.3GHz Intel Core i3-7100U processor has plenty of power to handle day-to-day computing tasks, including web surfing, video chat, and word processing. It can even play some games at low graphics settings, though it's not an ideal gaming laptop.

This HP laptop comes with a 1TB 5400 RPM hard drive that has plenty of space to store files and data. It also has a slot for one multi-format SD media card reader for further storage expansion. It runs Windows 10 Home 64 bit operating system.

HP offers little of its own software, but the included CyberLink suite of media apps may be valuable to amateur video and photo editors. The machine also includes 25GB of Dropbox storage for a year.

To evaluate the laptop's storage performance, we ran a CrystalDiskMark benchmark test. This is a popular tool for measuring the read and write speeds of storage devices. In our test, the HP laptop recorded a sequential read speed of 502 MBps and a write speed of 488 MBps.

The HP 15-bs033cl has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 graphics card. It's not the most powerful graphics card, but it should easily run most current games at low settings. However, you won't be able to play many of the most demanding games at high settings.
