The HP 15-bs075nf features a typical entry-level HP design with a rounded silhouette, large screen borders, and smooth surfaces. The PC is installed in a polycarbonate shell that abandons the relief effects of the previous generation to return to a smooth silver surface dominated by the chrome logo in the center. The interior contrasts with a brushed black wave-shaped coating and chrome hinges. Side measurements, the PC has very subtly thinned and lightened while remaining in the average of its category. Note that the backlit keyboard is still not in the program but that HP preserves the keypad.
Autonomy should exceed 7 hours in Web browsing with active WiFi, a good result for its category and performance.
At its heart, the HP 15-bs513nf is based on a Core i5 Kaby Lake low power supported by 4 GB of RAM . With this duo, all office tasks are assured (Web browsing, Office suite, video playback) as well as a little editing (light Photoshop). On the other hand, the multitasking will prove very quickly its limits because of the RAM in small quantity.
Good point, the graphics part is entrusted to a dedicated entry-level solution, the Radeon 520 . As it stands, it is aimed exclusively at casual players who will be able to launch the majority of the titles of the market provided to lower the definition of the slab (768p) and not to be too demanding on the level of detail. The game in Full HD is limited to the least greedy titles.
The storage disregards the responsiveness of the dedicated SSD and put on a conventional hard drive of 1000 GB , providing enough space to accommodate all your toy library. Basically, this configuration will be suitable for those who have not yet worked on a PC with a dedicated SSD and can therefore deal with the few latencies imposed by the DD. For others, the backtracking should be quite tough. Also note that an M.2 slot is apparently free to place a SSD complement if necessary.
Regarding the screen, the record is mixed as HP always on a simple TN panel with narrow viewing angles. Apart from that, its full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is beneficial with its high display density allowing to view High Definition content in the best conditions and to modulate the display while its antireflection treatment facilitates visibility. in a bright environment.
Connectivity is also pretty basic. There is an HDMI output, three USB ports including two USB 3.1, an SD card reader, a DVD burner and a Gigabit Ethernet port. The Wifi N wireless module and Bluetooth 4.0 are old generation. Not surprisingly, the USB Type-C is not in the program.
