HP AM-020TU is an appropriate laptop for daily use. Although, it really depends on what activities and programs involve in your daily usage, I would assume that you are going to use it mostly for web surfing, mailing, entertainment (such as music, movies), office work. In fact, you can expect it to smoothly run development programs like Visual Studio and other resource heavy programs. You may also be able to play games that do require less graphics memory.
The performance of a laptop depends on various aspects, but I would like to discuss the memory and processor of HP AM 020TU laptop. The 4GB RAM in this laptop is what we should expect from most other laptops in this price range. The processor used in this laptop is an Intel® Core™ i3-5005U Processor with 3M Cache and a clock speed upto 2.00 GHz.
Please note that Intel Processors with U suffix are usually made for ultrabooks or laptops. They are comparatively more power efficient but pretty less powerful, compared to the ones used in desktop computers. But still, this particular i3 processor is all enough to do most tasks easily. The positive point of this processor is that you can expect a really good, long battery backup on your laptop. However, the battery backup of laptops also depend on what kind of programs you are using on it. You can still expect a decent battery backup in power saver mode, without worrying for your charger.
Also, this laptop does not come with the traditional 15.6 inch display size, but a 14 inch HD display. Upon your query, I just made a check myself and found HP AM020TU laptop on HP's official online store to have the only model with a display of HD resolution (1366*768). So, you may just relax that this one is the official resolution for this laptop. A 14-inch display size makes the laptop more compact and portable. (Exceptionally, the company may have launched more than one variant of the same laptop. In this case, you can just look for the availability of your desired variant at your nearest HP store). If you intend to buy it online, you will be able to find the specs of HP AM 020TU model that is available at your desired online store.
Another good addition in this laptop is the presence of a Multi DVD-RW when most laptops today don't come with a DVD drive. This can provide you the option to read DVD discs and specially while installing new operating systems.
The HDD space of 1 TB also seems promising for storing a large amount of files on your laptop. In most cases, you will not need to carry an external HDD if you have a TeraByte of memory right on your laptop.
While the 4 GB RAM is enough for most tasks, the same can be upgraded to 8 GB easily in future. The processor used in this laptop can handle up to 16 GB of RAM but I would suggest you to always check with the laptop manufacturer to be sure if you can install so much of RAM on this HP model. (The amount of maximum usable RAM on a system also depends on the OS currently installed on it, so we should also keep that thing in mind while thinking of a RAM upgrade to be future-proof).
It comes with a multi-touch, multi-gesture enabled touchpad, not the traditional one. If you haven't used this touchpad before, you should know that this touchpad will provide your many features like two-finger scrolling, two-finger tap to open right menu and many other sliding gestures as you generally have on your smartphone, right on your touchpad. Most laptops with a multitouch touchpad comes with special software by which you can customize the actions that should initiate upon different gestures.
Altogether, it is a pretty decent laptop, fully loaded with all the features required for daily usage. And if you are not intending to play heavy games on it, you can just go for this laptop.
(Free suggestion- If a powerful and feature-rich laptop is all that you want, you can consider other competitive brands as well, such as Acer, Sony and Lenovo. You can compare specs and prices of specific laptop brands online to make a better decision and deal. Ensuring the availability of service centres near your residence should also affect your decision)
Wish you all the best for your new laptop, in advance.
