Housed in a polycarbonate case, the HP 17-bs036nf features a two-tone design that combines a smooth silver-colored lid with a chrome logo in the center and a contrasting interior with a brushed black wave-shaped liner, all secured by chrome hinges. . The result is convincing with a discreet and elegant appearance . The robustness is not really the rendezvous by cons, but given its format, this PC is not intended to be moved regularly and therefore less subject to damage. The measurements are average in its class and backlit keyboard is still not in the program, it\’s a shame. Especially on a black keyboard.
Autonomy should not exceed 6 hours in Web browsing with active Wifi.
Equipped for office use, the PC is built around a low-power Core i5 Kaby Lake processor and 8 GB of RAM . This combination copes with all the common tasks (Office Pack, web browsing, video playback) and can even tackle some missions a little more demanding like editing (Photoshop). In addition, it will offer a nice amplitude in multitasking thanks to its RAM in a satisfactory quantity.
The presence of a dedicated graphics card AMD Radeon 520 is to be underlined even if only the occasional players will be satisfied with it. With it, you will be able to launch the majority of the securities of the market provided to lower the level of details. On the screen side, the PC opts for standard specifications: a definition of 1366 x 768 px, the support of a TN panel and a brilliant treatment. As a result, the viewing angles are narrow, the average colorimetry and the screen reflect the surrounding light.
The storage disregards the responsiveness of the dedicated SSD and put on a conventional hard drive of 1000 GB , providing enough space to accommodate all your toy library. Basically, this configuration will be suitable for those who have not yet worked on a PC with a dedicated SSD and can therefore deal with the few latencies imposed by the DD. For others, the backtracking should be quite tough. Also note that an M.2 slot is apparently free to place a SSD complement if necessary.
For its part, the screen disappoints somewhat with its standard definition (1600 x 900 pixels), its brilliant treatment which reveals the colors but which favors glare in a bright environment and the support of a TN panel, with narrow viewing angles and the average colorimetry. It is no longer rare to see Full HD (IPS) in this price bracket.
Connectivity is quite outdated but it brings together the essential. It includes a DVD burner, an SD card reader, an HDMI output and three USB ports including two USB 3.1. Gigabit Ethernet is also present as well as Wifi N wireless modules and Bluetooth 4.0 older generation.
