Elegant with its silver design, the new thin and light HP Ultrabook 15-dw0105nf with 15-inch Full HD IPS anti-reflective screen is designed for everyday use. It is performing well in this area thanks to its large amount of RAM, its Whiskey Lake Quad Core i7 processor and its hybrid storage with significant fast SSD capacity which enhances responsiveness. It also has a USB 3.1 Type-C connection but ignores the backlight of the keyboard keys.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15-dw0105nf
This thin and light PC features an elegant and discreet design thanks to its natural silver chassis with a brushed vertical pattern. It can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
This Ultrabook has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports, a practical HDMI video output to connect it easily to a TV or a monitor for example as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
No backlight system for chiclet keyboard keys, however, while we are entitled to expect it here with regard to the positioning of the PC.
In any case, the screen will appeal to lovers of High Definition content with its precise Full HD definition, its 16: 9 format making it particularly well suited for playing videos. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outside). Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has comfortable viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, its colorimetry is average, lower than that of higher-end IPS panels.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 15-dw0105nf
The HP 15-dw0105nf is a 15 inch compact responsive laptop for everyday use.
It has a good amount of RAM of 16 GB above the average very significant in multitasking and to see coming in this area. It accompanies a Quad Core i7-8565U low consumption Whiskey Lake processor.
This duo delivers good general performance able to satisfy many users as long as they do not want to regularly perform heavy work in processor resources. Because in this case, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low power processor.
In addition, this Ultrabook certainly allows you to view photos and videos thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i7. But as it does not come with a dedicated graphics card, this thin and light computer is not suitable for heavy graphics work like games.
On the other hand, this elegant silver Ultrabook will interest those who wish to benefit from a fluid laptop offering a high capacity. It indeed integrates a hybrid storage solution combining a 128 GB SSD intended to house the system as well as the main software with a hard disk of 1000 GB therefore to accommodate the rest.
The SSD guarantees in practice a much more reactive and fluid operation than a simple hard drive. Thanks to SSD, we therefore benefit from much faster start / stop and launch of software.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose finesse and weight less than 2 Kg facilitate transport, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
