    "I think Pavilion laptops are great! I've wanted one with 16 GB of RAM and had been looking for quite a while when I came across the HP Pavilion 15-cb079nr. This laptop was perfect for me! It had all of the features that I wanted and runs incredibly well. I loved using it and I loved everything about it! I hope to find a similar laptop when I next need a new one."

    "This laptop is way too heavy, and I don't like how it disipates heat. It has some decent specs, but doesn't come with a SSD, which has become pretty standard these days. So you most likely are gonna have to go through the pain of replacing the drive. Why bother? Just buy something else."

    "It was time for me to upgrade my laptop and I wanted one that could handle the most complex games. I chose the HP Pavilion 15-cb079nr. I can't believe they can pack all the power necessary to play modern games in such a compact and light package. Everything you need is there, a fast processor and a burly video card. The battery seems to last forever just for icing on the cake. Two thumbs up! "

    "This is overall a very solid PC for the price I paid (under 1k). The 1050TI lets you do some gaming, 16GB helps future proof this. The NVMe hard drive allows the computer to boot up in a matter of seconds. I'm very happy with my purchase.I did upgrade it to Windows 10 Pro. I am very happy with the battery and the performance of this computer."

    "I am impressed with the brushed aluminum design of this laptop, I mean for HP to invest in aesthetics is somehow not usual. I have a decent gaming play time with this laptop. But it doesn’t offer much details of crisp and seamless movements of images and videos because of its relatively low but acceptable framerate per second (|fps) but this is common for these kinds of laptop.

    "I used an HP Pavilion Power 15 with the 1050 TI and I thought it was a capable enough computer. If you need something that can play casual games or even enthusiast games on moderate settings, this should be fine. The only problem is the screen isn't great, so make sure you have an external monitor."

    "I wasn't impressed with this laptop. For $1,500 you'd expect at least a GTX 1060; the 1050TI is significantly weaker and places it under the "VR ready" threshold. There's no hybrid drive either, just a 1TB HDD. All the other specs are in line with what'd you expect for a gaming laptop: battery life, screen quality and storage are all just okay, so I'm not sure what you get for that extra money. "

    "If you use your laptop for gaming, you can't settle for a cheap one. It needs to be able to run the games, store the files, and not freeze at the worst possible moment. The HP Pavilion 15-cb079nr, of course, has amazing graphics (because otherwise, you might as well use a console) and performance. What sets it apart is the long battery life and the backlit keyboard, so if you're in a marathon gaming session and you can't get up to plug it in or turn on the lights--you're good to go."

    "Decent laptop for gaming and business use , or in my case programming. I'm more concerned about processing speed when compiling large amounts of code as opposed to its graphics. The screen is good, the 7th gen mobile i7. The 12 GB of memory is good to have out of the box as opposing to have to upgrade. "

    "This laptop is pretty awesome. It's fast and powerful. I was hesitant to buy it at first because it was more than I wanted to spend, but I've never had a really powerful computer before. This one is great (16GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, 128GB drive). The only thing I could have wished for (if I got a do over) is a touchscreen. I think that would be really useful. "

    "I went shopping for an HP laptop that weighs between 1.5 and 1.9 kg. My friend told me that this is the weight range I should look for so the laptop would be easier to take places. On a side note, it is difficult to shop for laptops with these particular weight requirements in the US, because we generally list things in pounds and ounces instead of kg. Anyway, after much searching and calculating, I decided on the HP Pavilion 15-cb079nr. It is a pretty good gaming laptop, but it is on the higher end of my weight restrictions. It gets a little heavy toting it around. Not a dealbreaker though.....still a solid laptop."

I'm a huge fan of everything HP is doing with their laptops lately, and this is no exception. It's great for average and more experienced users as well."

    "I was not even aware hybrid drives were a thing until I bought this beast. I was quite surprised when I discovered that my 12-CB079NR was among the top rated across the board, and quite possibly HP's most optimal unit at this point in time. It certainly is not cheap, but you do get quite suitable processing power in return. "

    "This machine is a beast. I was able to run Witcher 3 at full settings with no lag and no drop in FPS. The display was fantastic the entire way through. It boots fast on start up and so far, I've had no issues with doing anything and everything with it. I suppose you could swap out the hard drive for something with more capacity, but only if you're needing to store a ton of files off cloud (like movies and such). I can totally recommend this purchase- 5/5."

I don't really understand all the specs but I do at least know it works for what I need it to do. Hopefully the price being this steep means it'll last me a few years. Other than that it's compact and light, easy to take to class."

I recently purchased the HP Pavilion 15-cb079nr and I have very mixed feelings about it. The performance is good, minus some fan issues. But the laptop has some serious flaws when it comes to track pad location, weird angling of the back when screen is passed 90 degrees, and limited options overall."

    "The laptop is incredibly fast, it just does not freeze with anything I throw at it. The speakers are fine, they just don't have a lot of bass, that would compromise the sound at higher volume (with the "movie" settings it can go up to 100% of their capacity without giving any signs of distortion offering a really loud and defined sound, but the bass will only be heard if you are in front of the laptop), it sounds louder and better than my sister's macbook pro."
