Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-eq1079nf
With its slate gray design with a textured finish, it has a very discreet look.
It runs on Windows 10S, a security-oriented system that only allows installation from the Windows Store. But you can exit S mode if necessary to switch to classic Windows 10 if you wish.
Thin and light, this laptop is equipped with good connectivity that does not have to be ashamed of that of many more expensive models. We find here 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a monitor or a TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, Ethernet ports and audio as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The screen adopts a definition of 1366×768 as well as a 16 / 9th format lending itself well to video playback, classic specifications. However, it stands out with its anti-reflective treatment, making it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP 15s-eq1079nf
The HP 15s-eq1079nf is a thin and light 15-inch computer intended for general use.
This inexpensive laptop is suitable for this area, such as office automation and surfing the Internet, as it relies on 4 GB of RAM coupled with a low power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 3250U Picasso processor.
This duo shows its limits in multitasking as well as in software demanding in processor resources, just like computers based on an Intel Core i3 processor (and of course less powerful CPU).
Here, there is no dedicated graphics card on board, logically considering the positioning of this PC, which nevertheless allows you to watch photos and videos thanks to the modest services of the Radeon Vega 3 solution housed within the Ryzen 3 AMD.
This thin and light laptop PC benefits from an SSD storage guaranteeing a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops and software launches.
Because an SSD is, let us remember, much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
Here we find a 128 GB SSD, limited capacity certainly sufficient to install and store software and light files. But this remains much lower than the standard of hard disks (500 GB).
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 take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the battery life, bet on approximately 5 hours of operation on battery in light use for this computer whose transport is facilitated by the smoothness and the controlled weight.
