Conclusion Buying a budget notebook is all about concessions. Every entry-level notebook will have its faults, the question is; do those faults and strongpoints align with your needs? The HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 does offer a few strong points including its colorful 15.6″ touch-enabled display, solid speakers, and large 750GB HDD. While the chassis doesn’t look like much, the glossy plastic cover is actually far more durable than expected. Of course the Sleekbook has its downsides as well with an uncomfortable touch pad and keyboard, short battery life, and lackluster performance. Still at this price point, the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 is solid choice for consumers looking for an entry-level notebook and don’t mind conceding on performance. Pros:

  • Vibrant 15.6-inch touch-enabled display
  • Solid audio quality
  • Affordable


  • Uncomfortable keyboard
  • Low quality touchpad
  • Weak performance
