The HP 15.6" 15-fd0057nr Laptop will cover your needs, whether for casual use or studying. This Laptop comes with Windows 11 pre-installed, an Intel 13th-gen Core i7-1355U, a 15.6" FHD 1920 x 1080 Micro-Edge Display, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and more.

Perfect for: Students requiring a trustworthy device to run educational software apps, write notes, and save Word documents or Excel spreadsheets. This is the ideal "couch surfing" laptop for those who also want a larger 15-inch display and a spacious keyboard or for someone who writes a lot or watches many videos.

Avoid it if you require a heavy-duty, high-performance laptop to run resource-intensive software like video-editing programs or if you need a laptop with high-quality GPUs and RAM to run PC games. While good, the display is not ideal for professional photo or video editing due to the lower color gamut.
