Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-eq1162nf
It sports a discreet look with its fine Slate Grey design and light textured mesh finish.
This laptop that can be charged to about 50% in 45 minutes has good connectivity with its USB-C, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless connections and remote communications, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if plugged into USB 3.0 devices.
The screen adopts classic specifications with its 16/9th format lending itself well to video playback and its definition of 1366×768 lower than Full HD. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, it is in any case more readable in bright environments (eg exterior) than a shiny slab and less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of the HP 15s-eq1162nf
The HP 15s-eq1162nf is a thin and light 15-inch computer intended for everyday use.
It delivers good performance in everyday use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation, because it relies on a good amount of RAM of 8 GB very useful in multitasking as well as an AMD APU processor (Accelerated Processing Unit) Athlon Silver 3050U low consumption Picasso.
However, the latter is sluggish under software that is a little greedy in processor resources, which implies slowdowns.
In any case, thanks to the Radeon Vega 2 graphics solution integrated into the Athlon Silver, you can watch photos and videos while no dedicated graphics card is embedded.
On the storage side, there is an SSD that consumes less energy than a hard drive but also more robust, silent and much faster.
Concretely, the SSD guarantees a much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, we get much faster starts/stops and software launches.
With its 256 GB, the SSD offers a capacity less than half what hard drives offer as standard. However, if you need additional space, it is possible to use an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to enjoy fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its thinness and its contained weight, count on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
