Performance, battery life of the HP 15-dw0030nf
The HP 15-dw0030nf is a 15-inch responsive notebook designed for everyday use.
It delivers good overall performance with its energy-efficient Whiskey Lake i5-8265U Quad Core i5-8265U processor. However, this Ultrabook shows its limits in multitasking because it has a standard amount of RAM of 4 GB. It will gain to add a DDR4 bar on the free slot to be more comfortable in this area.
In any case, the responsiveness is everyday with the Quad Core of course but also SSD storage. Compared to a hard disk, remember that a SSD is much faster but also less energy, more robust and quiet.
Thanks to the SSD, we get a better fluidity than with a hard disk, as well as start / stop and software launches much faster.
As is often the case with embedded SSDs, however, the capacity of the embedded SSD here is less than the standard of hard drives. We still have 256 GB enough for many uses. But if it proves too fair, we always have the possibility of using an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device is then an interesting solution because we take advantage of transfers made quickly.
As it lacks a dedicated GPU, this Ultrabook is not suitable for games and more generally for heavy graphics. It is the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 which is responsible for all graphics. Its services are very modest and it allows of course to look at photos and videos.
As for the transport of this Ultrabook, it is facilitated by its contained weight and its compact dimensions. In terms of autonomy, put on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
