Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-by2024nf
This laptop, which can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes, features a discreet Ebony Black mesh design with a textured finish.
It houses an optical unit on the right, a feature that has become rare in recent years due to the modes of dematerialization and finesse.
In practice, we can therefore read and burn CDs and DVDs with this PC.
In terms of connectivity, this laptop PC is properly provided with its useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote connections and communications but also its 3 USBs, all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to them.
The screen adopts a definition of 1600×900, a classic characteristic like the 16 / 9th format lending itself well to video playback. It should be noted that it reproduces colors more faithfully than average, without achieving the colorimetric accuracy offered by more high-end panels, in particular IPS. In any case, as it is anti-reflective, the screen is less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-by2024nf
The HP 17-by2024nf is a large format laptop PC intended for general use.
In this area, as in Internet surfing and office automation as well as in content multitasking, it provides good performance because it is based on 4 GB of RAM coupled with a low-consumption Intel Comet Lake Core i3-10110U processor.
The latter reveals its limits under software requiring processor resources, just like the AMD Ryzen 3 and less powerful processors of course.
Logically in view of its positioning, this laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card. It is therefore not designed for heavy graphics work such as games.
On the other hand, we can obviously watch photos and videos on this computer thanks to the modest services of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Core i3.
Storage is a strong point of this laptop PC because it is entrusted to a 1000 GB hard drive, a large capacity that will be of interest to those who wish to install and store multiple software and files on their computer.
As for battery life, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this PC whose large 17-inch format is well suited to predominantly sedentary use (eg at home).
