This laptop has 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM which might be decent evnough for normal everyday use and a 500 GB 5400 rpm Hard drive for you to store your data on.
As for the Display The Pavilion 15-b142dx has a 15.6-inch HD BrightView LED-backlit display with a max resolution of 1366 x 768 which is not that amazing but still is decent enough for this price point. The Display is powered by an AMD Radeon HD 7500G GPU which can share upto 2033MB of total video memory and also has an HDMI output which might come in handy for some users.HP has also included something called the “VISION Technology” which makes your digital photos and Web sites look better and also gives a boost to digital music playback.

If you desperately need an optical drive then you might want to check out the Samsung Series 3 NP365E5C-S02UB which has a DVD Writer and has a pretty decent price.
