Thin and light, the HP 15s-fq2012nf is an elegant silver Ultrabook with 15-inch Full HD anti-glare screen intended for versatile use with its Ice Lake Intel Quad Core i7 processor with Iris Xe graphics capable of running games that are not too greedy. . This laptop PC benefits from enhanced responsiveness thanks to its fast 512 GB SSD storage and USB-C connectivity, but does not include Wi-Fi ax and a keyboard backlight solution.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-fq2012nf
Sleek with its slim and lightweight Natural Silver light silver design, this Ultrabook can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
It incorporates good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a 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 peripherals are connected to it USB 3.0.
Too bad, however, not to deal with more recent standards, such as Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5.0. It is also unfortunate that the chiclet keyboard cannot be backlit because this would have made it easier to distinguish its keys in the event of limited ambient light.
In any case, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP 15s-fq2012nf
The HP 15s-fq2012nf is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It incorporates 8 GB of RAM coupled with a low-power Quad Core i7-1165G7 Intel Tiger Lake processor. This duo delivers good general performance capable of satisfying a number of users, especially since the Intel Iris Xe graphics part (which we tested) allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles that are not too greedy in graphics resources because it is significantly more powerful than the classic Intel UHD 620.
However, it is beneficial to opt for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor and an appropriate dedicated graphics card if one often wishes to carry out work that is demanding in terms of processor and / or graphics resources.
Thanks to the on-board SSD storage, the responsiveness and fluidity of this thin and light laptop PC is reinforced on a daily basis compared to a hard drive. Because compared to the latter, an SSD is less energy intensive, more robust, silent but also much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit, for example, from launching much faster software as well as processing and starting / stopping, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks.
But obviously if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose controlled weight and finesse facilitate transport, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
