Chassis, connectivity, screen of the HP 15-dw2041nf
Rechargeable to approximately 50% in 45 minutes, this computer sports an elegant design with its natural silver frame brushed vertical pattern.
This Ultrabook has a good connection including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports, an HDMI video output useful for connecting it easily to a TV or monitor for example as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. It adopts a 16: 9 format suitable for video playback as well as a precise Full HD definition which lends itself well to the display of High Definition content.
Performance, battery life of the HP 15-dw2041nf
The HP 15-dw2041nf is a compact 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It stands out for its hybrid storage offering a total capacity of 1.1TB higher than the average. In practice, we take advantage of both the high reactivity offered by the 128 GB SSD intended to house the main software in addition to the system, and a large capacity thanks to the 1000 GB hard drive provided to accommodate the rest.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from application launches and starts / stops much faster than with a simple hard drive. On a daily basis, we obtain a much better fluidity and responsiveness.
The SSD therefore goes very well with the heart of this computer which delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users. It consists of an Ice Lake low-power Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking.
Of course, this PC is not equipped with a dedicated graphics card. It is therefore not suitable for heavy graphics work such as games. However, thanks to the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Ice Lake, you can of course watch photos and videos on this laptop.
As for autonomy, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose controlled weight and thinness facilitate transport.
