Chassis, connectivity, screen of the HP 14s-fq0023nf
With its natural silver frame brushed vertical pattern, this thin and light laptop rechargeable to about 50% in 45 minutes has a sober and elegant appearance.
This laptop benefits from a good connection made up of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote communications and connections, an audio port or 2 USB 3.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 / .1 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals.
The screen adopts a definition of 1366×768 and a 16: 9 format lending itself well to video playback, classic characteristics. However, it is distinguished by its anti-reflective treatment, making it less tiring for the eyes in the long run than a shiny panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP 14s-fq0023nf
The HP 14s-fq0023nf is a compact and responsive laptop designed for everyday use on the go.
It benefits from SSD storage ensuring a much smoother and more responsive operation than a hard drive, which implies for example much faster starts / stops and launches of applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards of the games online.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more robust and silent. In addition here is integrated a 512 GB SSD, a capacity that rivals the standard of hard disks.
Of course, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain rapid transfers.
The heart of this thin and light computer is matched, delivering a level of overall performance capable of satisfying many users. It consists of a Quad Core AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U low-power Picasso processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM above average and very useful in multitasking.
You can watch photos and videos on this sleek silver PC, but also play titles that don’t consume much graphics resources when it lacks a dedicated GPU. How? ‘Or’ What ? Thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 part integrated into the Ryzen 5. The Vega 8 is close to an entry-level dedicated graphics card, and clearly superior to the UHD 620 integrated in Intel processors.
As for the autonomy of this computer, whose lightness, compactness and finesse make it easy to transport, expect around 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
