Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Envy 13-aq1007nf
It sports an original and elegant design to say the least with its Noir Nuit hood with an anodized sandblasted finish and wrist rests in natural walnut wood.
This Ultrabook, which can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes, is equipped with connectors including Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely. , an audio port, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices to it are connected.
Some may however deplore the absence of HDMI video output. But you can always get a USB 3.0 to HDMI or USB-C to HDMI adapter if necessary .
A biometric reader is integrated and therefore you can authenticate yourself on the system by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The webcam has a stop device function called Kill Switch to protect privacy.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard is equipped with a practical backlight system for the keys to discern them in the dark.
With its IPS technology, the screen displays more faithful colors than the average as well as comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It is suitable for videos and more generally for High Definition content thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. While laptops that want to be nomadic usually adopt an anti-reflective screen, here it is brilliant. The colors it offers are therefore enhanced, but it is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, battery life of the HP Envy 13-aq1007nf
The HP Envy 13-aq1007nf targets those looking for a compact laptop for everyday mobile use.
Easy to transport because of its compactness, its finesse and its lightness, this Ultrabook will indeed appeal to nomads because it can last on average around 8:30 on battery, and more in lighter use as revealed by our test dedicated to the HP Envy 13-aq .
Despite everything, this Ultrabook with an original design delivers good general performance able to satisfy many users. It is indeed built around 8 GB of RAM and a Quad Core i7-10510U low consumption Comet Lake processor.
In addition, this Ultrabook benefits from SSD storage. With its 512 GB, the SSD integrated here rivals hard disks in terms of capacity while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust but also much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, this thin and light ultraportable is much more reactive and fluid than if it were based on a simple hard drive. We take advantage for example with the SSD of start / stop and software launches much faster than with a hard drive.
And if 512 GB is too tight, you can always use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device is therefore an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
Logically in terms of its weight and finesse, this Ultrabook skips a dedicated graphics card. It is therefore not designed for demanding graphics work like games but still allows you to view photos and videos of course thanks to the modest Intel UHD 620 graphics solution integrated into Comet Lake.
