Chassis, connectors, display of the HP 17-cn0503nf
This relatively thin and light large format laptop sports a sober design with its Jet Black chassis.
Its connectivity is good, including a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C not to mention 3 USB, USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
Many users will appreciate the features of the screen. Because it offers significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. In addition, it adopts a precise Full HD definition superior to the standard 1600×900 as well as a 16/9th format, which makes it very well suited for displaying High Definition content such as videos. In addition, as it is treated anti-reflective, the screen is more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (eg outside) and less tiring for the eyes in the long run.
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-cn0503nf
The HP 17-cn0503nf is a relatively thin and lightweight large format laptop intended for common versatile use.
It delivers good performance in everyday use, such as office automation and Internet surfing, because it integrates a low-power Intel Core i3-1115G4 Tiger Lake processor coupled with a good amount of RAM of 8 GB very useful in multitasking.
In addition, the Core i3-1115G4 has the advantage of housing within it the Intel G4 graphics solution whose performance is superior to that of the classic Intel UHD 620.
As a result, in addition to being able to watch photos and videos, one can even indulge in light gaming on this relatively thin and light laptop.
However, it should be borne in mind that under CPU-intensive applications, the Core i3 shows its limits, like the AMD Ryzen 3 and less powerful processors obviously.
On the storage side, HP chooses a silent SSD but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy consuming and much faster. Here the SSD offers 512 GB of capacity, which corresponds to what hard drives offer as standard.
However, if you need more space, you can obviously rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0/USB-C device is then an interesting option to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, count on about 7 hours of operation on battery in light use, which is all the more appreciable as we are dealing with an Ultrabook and therefore a relatively thin and light mobile computer. Its large 17-inch format certainly does not position it among the most easily transportable but is comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
