That’s no moon: Hands on with HP’s Star Wars notebook

HP's distinctly dark side Star Wars notebook is due to hit Australian retailers before the month is out and we've had a brief hands on with the new device. Technically called the HP Star Wars Special Edition Notebook, the laptop is a Sith Lord inspired piece of kit based on the Pavilion 15.

The Pavilion 15 is HP's jack of all trades notebook; it's a bit bulky, and a feels a little too plastic, but the price is more affordable than the slicker, high-end HP Spectre x360, for example. The Star Wars themed machine is powered by a sixth generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce 940M GPU with 2GB of VRAM, placing it at the higher-end of midrange. It' also features 15.6-inch screen that runs at 1080p (not enabled for touch), ships with a 1TB HDD, and is said to run for up to seven hours per charge. While I didn't enough time with the Star Wars notebook to test this, my experiences with other devices in the family suggest it will be closer to four or five.
