So yesterday my dad bought my brother a new laptop for college. We recently bought a hp envy before this but it kept crashing and we had to return it to the store. We didn't have much time and the shop assistant showed us the Hp pavilion 15-au077sa. It costs 630 euros and I have no idea if it's good or not. My brother spent a day with it and it seems to handle normal internet browsing well. My brother is taking an engineering course and it involves the use of solidworks. Would this be an adequate laptop for his course?I feel like this is such an impulse buy. I'll show the specs below.
