Chassis, connectivity, screen of the HP 14s-dq1035nf
It sports a sober and elegant design with its fine and light light silver frame. It can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is good, consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port, wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications as well as 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
Lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate dealing with a screen that adopts a precise Full HD definition higher than the 1366×768 standard as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 14s-dq1035nf
The HP 14s-dq1035nf is a responsive and compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday mobile use.
It stands out for its SSD storage. It rivals hard disks in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB while being more energy efficient, more robust, silent but also much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, this thin and light PC is much more fluid and responsive to use than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. The SSD guarantees, for example, much faster starts / stops and launches of applications.
It therefore supports the heart of this computer very well, which shows its limits under software that consumes processor resources but is very suitable for everyday use.
It is in fact built around a low-consumption Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 Turbo processor and a good amount of RAM of 8 GB above the average very appreciable in multitasking.
Remember that a Core i3 Turbo is significantly more efficient than a non-Turbo Core i3 (Core i3-7xxxU and predecessors).
As for autonomy, expect about 6 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose finesse, compactness and weight content facilitate transport.
