Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 14s-fq0070nf
Rechargeable to around 50% in 45 minutes, this Ebony Black design laptop with matte base finish has a discreet look.
It runs on Windows 10S, security-focused edition by only allowing the installation of apps from the Windows Store. If desired, however, you can exit S mode to migrate to classic Windows 10.
This thin and light laptop is equipped with a good connectivity that has nothing to envy that of many more expensive laptops. There is 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote communications and connections, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port without forget 2 USB 3.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 peripherals.
For its part, the screen adopts a 16: 9 format that lends itself well to video playback, a classic characteristic like its definition of 1366×768. On the other hand, it is distinguished by its anti-reflective treatment, which makes it less tiring over a long period of time than a shiny panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of the HP 14s-fq0070nf
The HP 14s-fq0070nf is a compact discreet laptop designed for everyday use.
In this field as in Internet surfing and office automation but also in content multitasking, this black laptop PC delivers modest services because it is based on 4 GB of RAM associated with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) 3020e low consumption Dali processor. .
The latter represents the limiting factor of this configuration because it is sluggish under software that is a little greedy in processor resources, which causes slowdowns.
Fortunately the heart of this computer is greatly supported on a daily basis by the SSD storage which clearly enhances the responsiveness and fluidity compared to a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we benefit from application launches and starts / stops much faster than with a hard drive.
Remember that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent.
Here we find a 128 GB SSD, small enough capacity to install and store light software and files but which is (much) less important than the standard hard disks (500 GB).
However, if you need more space, you can always use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to enjoy fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose lightness, compactness and finesse facilitate transport, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
