Multimedia-oriented, the new HP Envy 17-ce1007nf 17-inch IPS Full HD anti-reflective laptop PC equipped with an optical unit for reading and burning CDs and DVDs offers high-capacity hybrid storage with fast SSD to enhance responsiveness. Powerful in current use with its good amount of RAM and its Quad Core i7 Comet Lake processor, it is able to run games not too demanding with its NVIDIA graphics card with Optimus technology. Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity, backlit chiclet keyboard and webcam with shutdown device are also on the agenda of this elegant silver PC.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Envy 17-ce1007nf
With its natural silver chassis, anodized and sandblasted finish, this Ultrabook rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes sports a sober and elegant design.
He takes advantage of an optical unit to read and burn CDs and DVDs while it has tended to become rarer in recent years due to the modes of dematerialization and finesse.
Connectivity side, this Ultrabook is well provided. We find 1USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a useful HDMI video output if the \\ we plan to connect it to a TV for example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if connected USB 3.0 devices.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard keys can be backlit which is very practical to distinguish them in dim light.
The webcam has a shutdown device to protect privacy, Kill Switch.
With its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics, the screen will appeal to those who wish to obtain significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more accurate colorimetry than the average. It lends itself well to the display of High Definition content with its precise Full HD definition, and in particular to videos because of its 16: 9 format.
Here, the treatment is brilliant: the colors are therefore reinforced but the screen is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (ex: outside).
Performance, autonomy of the HP Envy 17-ce1007nf
The HP Envy 17-ce1007nf targets those looking for a sleek, relatively thin, large-format laptop for versatile, portable use.
Side autonomy, count on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer which is however not more easily transportable with its weight close to 3 Kg. Its large format makes it mainly a sedentary use (ex : at home).
In any case, this computer will interest those who wish to benefit from a high storage capacity because it offers in this area a total of 1.2 TB. Hybrid, the storage consists of a 256 GB SSD intended to house the system as well as main software and a comfortable hard drive of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest, swift with its speed of 7200 rpm against 5400 rpm usually.
On a daily basis, the SSD has the advantage of ensuring significantly more fluid and responsive operation than a hard drive. We take advantage of, for example, much faster software launches and starts / stops, but also a faster arrival on the online game cards.
Because we can play titles that are not too greedy on this PC because it is equipped with the dedicated GeForce MX250 card. Of course like the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the processor, the GeForce MX250 allows you to watch photos and videos.
NVIDIA Optimus on-board technology automatically switches between the two in real time, as needed. Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 620 despite its modest performance because it promotes autonomy over the GeForce MX250.
More demanding and efficient than the Intel UHD 620, the GeForce MX250 is activated by Optimus when it comes to performing graphics work deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 620.
The heart of this computer delivers good general performance able to satisfy many users. It is indeed made up of a good amount of 16 GB RAM which allows you to see well coming in this area and is useful in multitasking, as well as a Comet Lake low consumption Quad Core i7-10510U processor.
It should however be borne in mind that to carry out work requiring processor resources on a regular basis, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low power processor.
