Solved!

When was the HP Pavilion 15-eh0502sa launched on the market?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-eh0502sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm interested to know when the HP Pavilion 15-eh0502sa was launched on the market? Is it a recent model? 

I would like to recommend it to a friend as an ideal 'light use' laptop.

It's certainly in the right price price range here in the UK.

I cannot find any user reviews of this machine. Comments welcome.

 

Thanks, John S

HP Pavilion Laptop 15-eh0502sa Product Specifications

 

Launch September 22, 2020

 

Datasheet - HP Pavilion Laptop 15-eh0502sa (287F9EA)  

 

Note: The "datasheet" says this model comes with "Windows S Mode".

Remember to remind your friend that "Windows S Mode" is a limited version of Windows that only supports installing applications from the Microsoft Store.  This is fine for some people - others find it odd and not particularly useful.

 

Windows 10 in S mode FAQ 

 

Switching out of S mode in Windows 10

Reminder,

"Leaving" S-Mode is a One-Way-Ticket:  Once you leave “S” mode, you cannot go back.

You must have a license to run "regular" (full) Windows.

If the computer you purchase does not come with regular Windows, you will have to purchase it.

 

User reviews might be available (in your region) for the "Series" as opposed to the exact model.

Hello Dragon-Fur,

 

Many thanks for your very informative reply and drawing my attention to the issues concerning Win 10 in S mode.  S mode isn't mentioned in the UK suppliers online product specs.

I think my friend could live with 'S mode' on this fairly cost effective laptop.

You are welcome.

 

Perhaps the UK product version provides the full Windows 10 installation.

That would be better all around, I think.

 

Stay Safe!

The spec details on the supplier's website just says "Windows 10 (64 bit)", no mention of S mode anywhere. I'll check with them directly. Thanks for pointing this out.

Excellent.

 

You do want "full Windows" - having Windows is a tiny fraction of the cost of the computer.

 

Windows Pro is better than plain Windows Home.

Windows Pro is not necessary; it does add a few more options.

Many people don't need "Pro" - it is a "bonus" version.  Smiling.

 

Microsoft - Compare Windows 10 Home vs. Pro
