Chassis, connectivity, screen of the HP 14s-dq1062nf
Rechargeable to approximately 50% in 45 minutes, it has an elegant and discreet look with its natural silver case, painted cover and base, molded finish keyboard frame with brushed vertical pattern.
Thin and light, this Ultrabook benefits from a good connection made up of 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote communications and connections, a practical HDMI video output for connecting it easily to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port as well as 2 USB 3.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it .
The screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a higher Full HD definition and more precise than the 1366×768 standard as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP 14s-dq1062nf
The HP 14s-dq1062nf is a compact laptop designed for everyday use on the go.
Built around an Intel Quad Core i5-1035G1 low power Ice Lake processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM, this Ultrabook delivers good overall performance that can suit many users.
However, it will not be suitable for gamers because it does not embed a dedicated graphics card, which makes sense given its positioning. However, thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Core i5 Ice Lake, you can watch photos and videos on this thin and light laptop PC.
It has the advantage of integrating a silent SSD storage but also less energy consuming than a hard drive, more robust and much faster. In addition here, the SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks.
Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of starts / stops and launches of applications much faster than with a simple hard drive, but also less noise generated.
Obviously if the proposed capacity is not enough, we can always help an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and lightness facilitate transport, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
