And this HP 15-dy2024nr is not heavy at all, it even is lighter than a 15″ Apple’s MacBook Pro with its 1.69 Kg (3.72 lbs) weight. The Macbook Pro weighs 1.83 Kg (4.02 lbs).

Benefits of a Quad-Core CPU
Now let’s get into the important feature of this HP 15-dy2024nr, which is its processor, the i5-1135G7 11th Generation of Intel i5 chip. Rather than a dual-core, our guy here comes with a Quad-Core processor chip. For multitasking and heavier PC task like basic gaming and editing video content, the Quad-Core CPUs are more powerful and faster. For lighter tasks like browsing the internet, watching movies, and editing the spreadsheet, this CPU will run them without issue either.
Speaking of synthetic benchmark, the CPU chip inside this 15.6″ HP 15-dy2024nr laptop brought over a 17% speed boost when compared to its older generation (the 10th Gen), i5-1035G7. What is more impressive, the benchmark also shows that it outperforms the 10th Gen of the i7 chip (i7-1065G7)! In terms of CPU speed, this is a quite major boost.
The dual-channel 2x 4GB DDR4-2666 MHz RAM and its fast SSD also help this performance boost of this laptop. And last but not least, this new chip is more power efficient when compared to the older CPUs, which also means, you will have longer battery life.
This Tiger Lake chip boasts 2.40 GHz of base speed and when needed, it can hit a maximum 4.20 GHz Turbo Boost speed. It also can keep up with the faster dual-channel 3200 MHz DDR4 or even the quad-channel LPDDR4x-4267 RAM. Moreover, it supports 4-lanes PCIe 4.0 and features AI Acceleration hardware which will become a common component in the future CPUs, which are the vital element of all kinds of PCs.
In essence, your new laptop has a fast new CPU which additionally gives you more bang for your back down the road.
15-dy2024nr For Gaming?
As expected at this price, this laptop is not designed for gamers. It does not have a dedicated Graphics card and proper cooling system to support playing games intensively. However due to the RAM which is running at dual-channel, and the latest generation of Intel i5 processor with its updated iGPU, this laptop can run a lot of basic games, like Minecraft, Fortnight, Roblox, Sims 4, and a few AAA titles.
For games like Valorant, and other heavy loads, this laptop will still run them, however, expect lower framerates with lower settings and resolution.
If you want a computer to play the latest AAA titles with a better result, we encourage you to get a dedicated gaming machine, like this one, which does not cost a lot more yet it has the hardware and component to play PC games properly.
Other Features You’ll Love
Other than the sleek design, new CPU, and new Windows 11 OS, the HP 15-dy2024nr has many features that I like. Let’s get into them.
Anti-Glare 15″ IPS
This i5-1135G7 HP laptop comes with a 15.6″ (diagonally measured) Full-HD non-touch IPS screen with an anti-glare coating (look at this HP if a touchscreen is a must feature). The 1920 x 1080 Full-HD screen resolution gives better viewing angles than screens with lower screen resolution. The micro-edge bezels are also thin, measuring at only 6.5mm gives you more real estate of your screen, there is an 82% screen-to-body ratio on your screen.
If you are a PC user who uses your laptop a lot daily, you will feel the benefit of the anti-glare coating of the screen, as this coating helps to avoid stress on your eyes. This anti-reflective feature is an essential feature to protect your eyes from eye strain and at the same time, it helps you to see your screen more accurately.
Substantial Battery Life
HP 15-dy2024nr is a productivity and entertainment portable computer. It means it can give you reliable battery life. The battery can last 6-7 hours for a full charge, this is quite impressive. Thanks to the i5-1135G7 energy-efficient CPU.
On top of that, the ability to fully charge your laptop in less than an hour is just another capability of this laptop that we love.
Double or Triple Your Storage
What separates this laptop from the rest in this price range is its SD card slot. So you can add extra storage without opening the laptop by using this slot. It is easier and faster. SD cards are more portable than other external hard drives, you can add them without using a cable. You can even add a 128, 256 or even 512 GB SD card to your base storage these days! This means you have one less bit to carry around.
Also, transferring pictures from your camera will be a lot faster. You don’t need to plug in your camera to your PC, plug in the camera’s SD card into your laptop’s SD card slot, and transfer the files. That easy and fast!
The other advantage of having an SD card slot in your laptop is, you can separate data in your SD card from your system and isolate them, a more secure way to store your data.
All in all, you are getting a laptop that has an SD card slot most laptops this thin do not have these days.
Another special feature is its front-facing speakers which result in better audio quality. Unlike a lot of other laptops that have their speakers on the bottom cover, this one has them above the keyboard deck. This helps produce better audio quality, it is loud, crisp, and full sound.
It also has dual-speakers and an integrated 720p HD True Vision HP webcam along with dual-array digital microphones onboard. This means you can chat or zoom with your friends and family, without purchasing an external web camera. Fewer devices to carry around every day.
If you are looking for a lightweight laptop that performs well, this laptop is a great choice. You are getting the premium build quality, and dual-channel RAM performance out of the box. It also comes with the latest computer technology today, like the newest CPU and Windows 11 OS. If you want something better than this, you will need to spend a few hundred more. Especially in a situation like this, where there have been CPU shortages.
It has all the features most PC users need for home and office use, as well as casual light gaming. The HP 15-dy2024nr 15-inch laptop is a great everyday lightweight computer.
