The top and bottom of the HP 15s are made of metal as are the edges of the affordable laptop. The area around the keyboard and the display is made of a somewhat cheaper looking plastic. The material transitions are evenly but clearly visible.
The manufacturer partially dispenses with extremely narrow screen edges, which means that the frame above the screen turns out a bit thicker, but the webcam does not have to move to an exotic location. The opening angle is limited to approximately 140 ° and the hinges hold the lid firmly in place.
Overall, the workmanship is good, but the case cannot be opened without great effort. Simply removing the screws is not enough to remove the bottom. Even with advanced tools such as plastic spatulas and the like, the attempt to open the laptop is canceled for safety reasons.
