Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-eq1003nf
Rechargeable to around 50% in 45 minutes, it sports a relatively discreet design.
Thin and light, this black laptop PC is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 2 USB 3.0 (both USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
The screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16: 9 format. It stands out, however, by its anti-reflective treatment making it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of the HP 15s-eq1003nf
The HP 15s-eq1003nf is a thin and light 15-inch computer intended for everyday use.
It has a good amount of RAM 8 GB above the average very appreciable in multitasking. It advantageously supports the processor which shows its limits under software that consumes processor resources, an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Athlon Silver 3050U low consumption Picasso.
This duo is suitable for everyday use, such as office automation and surfing the Internet.
However, it is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card. This computer is therefore not designed for heavy graphics work such as games.
However, thanks to the modest performance of the Radeon RX Vega 2 graphics part housed in the Athlon Silver Picasso, you can watch photos and videos on this discreet black laptop PC which benefits from enhanced responsiveness thanks to its SSD storage.
Compared to a hard drive, an SSD is indeed much faster but also less energy, more robust and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, starts / stops are much faster than if we were dealing with a hard drive for example, just like the launching of applications.
On the capacity side, the SSD offers 256 GB here, which is certainly sufficient for many uses but is inferior to the standard of hard disks.
In case you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this laptop whose transport is as easy as an Ultrabook because of its thinness and controlled weight.
