Performance, autonomy of the HP 255 G7 (6BN99EA)
The HP 255 G7 (6BN99EA) is a 15-inch notebook for everyday use.
It delivers good performance in this area, such as office automation and surfing the Internet, because it relies on an AMD Ryzen 3 2200U low-power Dual Core Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) processor – close to an Intel Core i3 – and 4 GB of RAM that are suitable for multitasking content.
This computer is not suitable for heavy graphics such as games because it ignores a dedicated GPU. Nevertheless, it allows of course to look at photos and videos thanks to the modest benefits of the solution Vega 3 housed within the Ryzen 3.
On the storage side, Hewlett-Packard opts for a solution that could not be more traditional: a 500 GB hard drive able to house a lot of files and software.
As for the autonomy of this computer is easy enough to carry because of its compact dimensions and weight under 2 Kg, put on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
