Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-ca2013nf
Rechargeable at around 50% in 45 minutes, this relatively light computer sports a sober design with its natural silver chassis, painted base finish and vertical brushing modification.
Its connection is correct, including 1 practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports as well than 3 USB (all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
While this functionality has tended to be rare in recent years due to modes of finesse and dematerialization, an optical unit is present here on the right side. With this PC, you can therefore read and burn CDs and DVDs.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use than a bright slab and more readable in bright environment (ex: outdoor). For the rest, the screen adopts classic characteristics with its definition of 1600×900 and its 16: 9 format which is well suited for playing videos.
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-ca2013nf
The HP 17-ca2013nf is a 17 inch laptop for everyday use and has a very high capacity.
It benefits from a 2 TB hard drive, twice as much as most PCs with high storage space. Clearly on this PC, you can install and store multiple software and files.
This laptop also benefits from a good amount of 8 GB RAM, which is all the more welcome in multitasking as it accompanies a processor showing its limits under applications demanding in terms of processor resources (which manifests itself in slowdowns), the APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) AMD Athlon Gold 3150U Dual Core Picasso entry level.
Thanks to this duo, this computer provides very correct services in everyday use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation. However, it is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card, which makes sense in terms of the positioning of this PC.
Therefore, it is the Radeon Vega 3 solution integrated within the Picasso which takes care of all the graphics. Modest, it of course allows you to view photos and videos but is not designed for heavy graphics work like games.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose weight is relatively light for a 17 inch, comfortable format for a mainly sedentary use (ex: at home), bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
