Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Envy 13-ba1015nf
It sports a sober and elegant design with its thin and light natural silver aluminum chassis, sandblasted cover and keyboard frame, glossy base finish. This ultraportable can be recharged to 50% in 30 minutes.
This Ultrabook is equipped with a good connection including 1 USB-C, a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor, for example, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than the Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 to connect and communicate remotely, a headphone / microphone combo audio port as well as 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
We regret, however, that Thunderbolt 4 is not offered here even though it is natively supported by the processor.
You can obviously backlit the keys of the chiclet keyboard, which is practical to distinguish them correctly in a dark environment.
The screen lends itself well to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content with its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. It also has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. But its colorimetry is average, lower than that of more high-end IPS screens.
Usually laptops that want to be nomadic are equipped with an anti-reflective treatment because it is less sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than gloss which has the advantage of reinforcing the colors. And here, the screen is precisely decked out with a brilliant treatment.
Performance, battery life of the HP Envy 13-ba1015nf
The HP Envy 13-ba1015nf is for those looking for a compact laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
Thanks to its good amount of 16 GB RAM and its low power Intel Tiger Lake i5-1135G7 Quad Core processor, this Ultrabook delivers good overall performance.
However, to often perform work that requires processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
Unsurprisingly, no dedicated graphics card is on board here. However, the Core i5 Tiger Lake has the advantage of housing the Intel Iris Xe (which we tested) within it . However, this graphics solution is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620.
Concretely, thanks to the Iris Xe, you can look at photos and videos on this Ultrabook of course, but also run games that are not too greedy in graphic resources.
In addition, this ultraportable has SSD storage which is silent but also more resistant to shocks than a hard drive, more energy efficient and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of starts / stops, treatments and launches of applications much faster than with a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here the SSD offers a capacity of 512 GB in phase with the standard of hard disks. But if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally in terms of battery life, expect around 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and lightness facilitate transport.
