Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-eq1057nf
With its Natural Silver design, painted cover and base, molded-finish keyboard frame with a vertical brushed pattern, this thin and light laptop, rechargeable at around 50% in 45 minutes, takes on a sober and elegant appearance.
The connectivity built into this laptop is good, rivaling that of many more expensive models. It consists of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports, a convenient HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or a TV for example but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 peripherals.
The screen is distinguished by the fact that it adopts a Full HD definition higher than the 1366×768 standard and more precise. Thus, it is well suited to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the HP 15s-eq1057nf
The HP 15s-eq1057nf is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition computer designed for everyday use.
In this area as in office automation and Internet surfing as well as in content multitasking, it delivers good performance because it is based on 4 GB of RAM associated with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 3250U low consumption Picasso processor .
However, it should be borne in mind that the latter shows its limits under software that is greedy in processor resources, like the Intel Core i3s and even more less powerful processors.
The Ryzen 3 has in any case the advantage of integrating the Radeon Vega 3 graphics part. Modest, it still allows you to watch photos and videos, but not to perform heavy graphics work (eg playing).
On the storage side, there is an SSD which is silent, more robust than a hard drive, less energy consuming and much faster.
Thus, thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of application launches much faster than with a hard drive, just like start-ups / shutdowns.
With its 256 GB, the SSD offers sufficient capacity for a number of uses, but lower than the standard of hard disks.
However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this computer whose weight and thinness facilitate transport, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
