Chassis, connectors, HP 15s-fq1003nf display
Its natural silver design brushed vertical motif gives it a sober, elegant and original appearance. It can be recharged at approximately 50% in 45 minutes.
This Ultrabook has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, ac Wi-Fi modules and Bluetooth 4.2 for connections and wireless remote communications, a HDMI video output useful if you plan to connect easily to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet ports and audio but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible both USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
A key backlight system also equips the chiclet keyboard which is useful for distinguishing them in case of limited ambient light.
The screen stands out for its anti-glare treatment, which makes it less tiring for the eyes than a glossy mat in the long run and more legible in a bright environment (ex: outdoor). For the rest, it adopts classic features: 1366×768 definition and 16 / 9th format suitable for playing videos.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 15s-fq1003nf
The HP 15s-fq1003nf is a compact and responsive 15-inch notebook for everyday use.
It loads a good amount of memory of 8 GB appreciable multitasking. It is associated with an Intel Core 10th generation Ice Lake Low Power Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor.
As a result, this Ultrabook delivers good overall performance that can satisfy many users. However, it will not seduce players and more generally those who want to perform heavy graphics because it ignores a dedicated GPU. Nevertheless, we can obviously look at photos and videos on this computer thanks to the (modest) benefits of the integrated Intel HD solution at Quad Core i5 Ice Lake.
In any case, responsiveness is required with this PC thin and light thanks to the aforementioned heart but also to SSD storage. The SSD guarantees a significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a hard disk, with faster startups / stops and software launches.
Recall that a SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more resistant to shock and silent. However, as is often the case with embedded SSDs, the proposed capacity is less than the standard hard disk drive.
We still have here a 256 GB SSD sufficient for many uses. And if it\’s too true, you can always rely on an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 device to get fast transfers.
As for battery life while waiting for more concrete tests, expect about 5 hours of light battery operation for this Ultrabook, which is easy to transport for 15 inches because of its compact weight and dimensions.
