Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 14s-dq2033nf
With its silver design, this thin and light laptop PC that can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes has an elegant and discreet look.
It is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.02 modules for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Lovers of videos and more generally of High Definition content will appreciate that the screen adopts a 16: 9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition. In addition, thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP 14s-dq2033nf
The HP 14s-dq2033nf is a compact responsive laptop designed for everyday use on the go.
It is based on an Intel Tiger Lake low consumption Core i3-1115G4 processor coupled with a good amount of 8 GB RAM. Thus, it delivers good performance in everyday use, such as Internet surfing and office automation.
In addition, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that don’t consume much graphic resources with this versatile Ultrabook thanks to the Intel G4.
This graphics solution housed within the Core i3 indeed provides better performance than those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Note however that under software heavy in processor and / or graphics resources, this thin and light laptop PC shows its limits, at like models with an AMD Ryzen 3 (and less powerful processor of course).
In terms of storage, HP opts for a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to the standard for hard drives. But compared to the latter, an SSD offers several advantages: robustness, silence, lower energy consumption and higher speed.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we obtain a much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than with a simple hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster software launches as well as processing, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Of course, if you need more space, you can obviously use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 6 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose low weight, compactness and finesse facilitate transport.
