New thin and light laptop, the HP 15s-eq0004nf with an elegant light silver design benefits from a 15 inch Full HD anti-glare screen ready for High Definition content. Designed for everyday use with its AMD Athlon Picasso processor, it sees its reactivity reinforced by its fast SSD storage and benefits from a USB 3.1 Type-C connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-eq0004nf
It has an elegant design with its clear natural silver chassis, brushed vertical pattern and can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
In terms of connectivity, this thin and light computer is well correctly There are 1 USB 3.1 Type-C (appreciable at this price level), Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The screen will appeal to lovers of videos and more generally of High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format as well as a precise Full HD definition superior to the 1366×768 standard. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a glossy screen.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 15s-eq0004nf
The HP 15s-eq0004nf is a compact 15-inch High Definition responsive laptop designed for everyday use.
It is indeed structured around an AMD Picasso APU processor (Accelerated Processing Unit) low consumption Athlon 300U and 4 GB of standard RAM. This duo shows its limits under software consuming a lot of processor resources, which results in slowdowns.
In practice, it is suitable for everyday use, such as Internet surfing and office automation, as well as for content multitasking.
Logically at this price level, no dedicated graphics card on board. Therefore, this laptop is not designed for heavy graphics processing like games.
Thanks to the modest Radeon Vega 3 solution integrated into the Picasso, you can of course view photos and videos.
On the storage side, HP opted here for an SSD. It has the advantage of guaranteeing significantly more fluid and responsive operation than a simple hard drive. Thus thanks to the SSD, we benefit in particular from software launching but also start / stop much faster with the SSD than with a hard drive.
With its 128 GB, the integrated SSD here offers a capacity significantly below the standard of hard drives. Sufficient in an office setting if we do not need to keep on PC number of large files, it may be too fair for some.
But in this case, there is always the possibility of relying on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device is therefore an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the weight contained (close to an Ultrabook), bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
