Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 14s-dq0015nf
With its natural silver chassis, brushed vertical pattern, it sports an elegant, sober and original design. It can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
This thin and light Ultrabook has a good connection positioned almost completely on the right. It includes 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote communications and connections, a practical HDMI video output in order to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, a audio port as well as 2 USB 3.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
Lovers of High Definition content and especially videos will be delighted to be dealing here with a screen displaying a precise Full HD definition with a 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, autonomy of the HP 14s-dq0015nf
The HP 14s-dq0015nf is a compact, responsive laptop for everyday mobile use.
It has a good amount of RAM of 8 GB above the average very useful in multitasking. And all the more so since it is coupled to a processor showing its limits under software consuming a lot of CPU resources, the Core i3-7020U low consumption Kaby Lake.
This duo is suitable for everyday use, such as internet surfing and office automation. But as it is not supported by a dedicated graphics card, this thin and light Ultrabook is not designed for gaming and more generally heavy graphics work.
One can nevertheless obviously watch photos and videos on this silver / black PC thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel HD 620 integrated into the Core i3.
To enhance daily responsiveness, HP equips this Ultrabook with SSD storage that is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy-consuming, more robust and quieter.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much more reactive and fluid operation than with a simple hard drive. The start / stop and launch of applications are much faster.
Here, we find a 256 GB SSD on board, sufficient capacity for a number of uses but below the standard for hard drives. If it turns out to be too fair for the intended use, there is always the possibility of using an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the lightness, compactness and finesse.
