Compact and fairly light, the HP 15-gw0039nf is an attractive option for office enthusiasts looking for mobility on a budget. A recent Ryzen 3 3250U is at the helm, supported by hybrid storage with SSD and hard drive to serve system responsiveness while conserving storage space. The set is dominated by a matte screen with thin edges and the silver design is sleek and goes anywhere. On the other hand, beware of the plastic case which is not very robust when traveling and the RAM is a little limited (4 GB).

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15-gw0039nf
If it does not radically change the codes present on entry-level HP laptops, the design of the HP 15-gw0039nf takes the right turns. With its neat silver frame (Natural Silver), it is not without getting closer to the ranges above, Pavilion or even Envy. The aesthetic remains very simple with smooth matte surfaces awakened only by the chrome HP logo on the back of the cover. The interior is embellished with a brushed effect. The chassis is made of plastic, so be careful when traveling.
The keyboard is not backlit on this model but has a numeric keypad .
It is in the format that we can see the efforts made by HP. With 1.74 kg on the scale for this model with hard drive and 19.9 mm thick, the PC displays the measurements of a large ultrabook and will not be against a few trips.
We then continue on the screen, rather basic here. It is satisfied with an HD definition (1366 x 768 px) with an average maximum brightness (220 nits) and is based on a TN panel with narrow viewing angles and average colorimetry. The only small positive side comes from its anti-reflective treatment which improves the readability of the image in strong ambient light.
For its part, the connection receives all the standard at this level with the presence of two USB 3.1 ports of standard size, a USB Type-C port , an HDMI output, an Ethernet port, a reader multi-format SD card and headphone jack. The fairly recent versions of the Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.2 modules are also on the menu.
Performance, battery life of the HP 15-gw0039nf
In the service of performance, we find a low consumption AMD Ryzen 3 3250U APU . Without being able to match the latest Core i3-10110U or i3-1005G1 from Intel, it is perfect for surfing the web, reading videos or doing spreadsheets or word processing and even a little photo editing. the occasion thanks to the presence of the Turbo. Opposite, multitasking is possible but limited by the 4 GB RAM .
The AMD Radeon Vega 3 chipset integrated into the processor will take care of the graphics rendering, namely that it is similar to the processing of the Intel UHD 620 of the Intel Core Comet Lake, enough to support current use and a minimum of play. We are talking about a few not greedy titles, and launched occasionally.
Storage is another defining element within this configuration since it offers all the space you may need, while ensuring system responsiveness. On the one hand, the dedicated 128 GB SSD (NVMe PCIe) is responsible for accommodating the operating system and some programs and games and contributing to a more responsive execution, shortened loading times and an overall environment. more lively. On the other hand, the 1TB hard drive (5400 rpm) will provide a large capacity that can be accessed quickly and allows a large amount of data to be archived in addition.
Let\’s finish with the battery life that must deal with a small battery of 41Whr. Understand that mobility will therefore be a little hindered with 5 to 6 hours at best in Web browsing with active Wifi.
