      You don't mention the name and model of the laptop in the intro... "this is the laptop that ended up fitting the bill..."  You really want your key-phrase in the first paragraph.

      And, if you have this laptop, take a photo of it. Make it personal.

      Like the others said, it's a little too short, but it doesn't have to be as much as 1000 words. In fact, I think you have enough words -- what you need is more photos.

    Do you have permission to use the image?

    The Amazon link could be a problem.

    The article is short. HubPages prefers a minimum of 1,000 words; 1,500 words are better.

    It definitely needs to be longer, the shorter the article is, the more it looks like the author just wrote it to use the Amazon affiliate link in it, you should add a section for the features and talk about your experience using it so you'll get a better word count, what did the message in the email say you needed to change?

    It said:
    "It's possible that your article is not Featured because it contains spammy elements. Perhaps it was written for a link, or has excessive product capsules or product capsules that are not directly related to the content. Even articles that appear to be high quality can be spammy. We recommend that you remove any spammy elements from your article.
    If you don't see any spammy elements in your article, then it was likely defeatured for failing to meet HubPages' general quality standards. The article may have been too short or underdeveloped, had formatting issues, broken or unrelated links, and/or significant grammatical errors. For more help on this front, please read the Elements of a Stellar Article Learning Center guide.
    What else can you do to improve your article? High-quality articles are original, in depth, and media rich. For starters, check out our Learning Center entry on How to Improve the Quality of an Article for detailed tips, helpful links, and before/after example articles."

    It's over 500 words, no errors, uses the company's official image just like this other review that got accepted:

    I honestly don't see the difference.

    In addition to the comments above, I doubt you'll get the Amazon link approved using 'low price' as your anchor text.

      Ok, I changed it to "affordable" and made another word the link.

        I think you should change it to something like 'HP laptop' Jonathan. The anchor text should ideally reflect the item that you are linking to.

        One other thought, is whether or not you should broaden the scope of your article to include HP Pavilion 15 Laptops generally. You can include your experience on your laptop model and perhaps include feedback on problems that others may have had with other budget HP 15 models.

        I'm unsure how it works in the US, but in the U.K., HP appears to sell these budget laptops with a variety of model numbers. If you do a price comparison search, it's often difficult to find another mainstream competitor with exactly the same model number. You will find an almost identical laptop, but it will have a different model number. In short, what I am saying is, is that you are limiting your audience.

        You do need to add some value to this hub, in order to avoid the spammy elements email. On the surface, it does appear that you have written the bare minimum, in order to get Amazon sales from a high ticket item, which is why it hasn't been approved yet.
