Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-by3069nf
Its natural silver frame with base paint finish, vertical brushing pattern gives it an elegant and discreet look. It only takes 45 minutes to recharge it to 50%.
In terms of connectivity, this PC is properly equipped. We find, mainly on the left, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected. USB 3.1 Type-C port point, which is sure to disappoint some.
In any case, it can read and burn CDs and DVDs because it incorporates on the right an optical unit, a feature that has become more rare in recent years due to the modes of finesse and dematerialization.
The screen is treated with an anti-reflective coating which makes it more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a bright panel and less tiring for the eyes over a long period. For the rest, it adopts classic specifications with its 16: 9 format suitable for playing videos and its definition of 1600×900.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 17-by3069nf
The HP 17-by3069nf is a 17-inch laptop suitable for general purpose use.
It benefits from a hybrid storage offering at the same time a great reactivity thanks to the SSD of 128 GB and a significant capacity thanks to the hard drive of 1000 GB. While the first is planned to house the system as well as the main software, the second welcome the rest.
On a daily basis, the SSD has the advantage of ensuring much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, you can launch applications and start / stop faster for example.
The SSD really supports the heart of this computer whose general performance is able to satisfy many users. It consists of an Ice Lake processor with low consumption Quad Core i5-1035G1 and a good amount of 8 GB RAM.
On the other hand, this laptop is not designed for demanding graphic work like games since it does not carry a dedicated graphics card. All graphics are in fact managed by the Intel UHD 620 part integrated into the Core i5. The modest Intel UHD 620 still allows you to view photos and videos, of course.
Keep in mind that for a 17 inch, this computer displays a contained weight. Its large format is particularly comfortable for a mainly sedentary use (ex: at home) and on the autonomy side, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
