Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-ca2023nf
It has an elegant and discreet look with its Natural Silver frame brushed vertical pattern. Additionally, this PC can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
This computer has a correct connection including a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote communications, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USBs (all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
In addition on the right side, this laptop houses an optical unit which has become rare in recent years due to the modes of dematerialization and finesse. We can therefore read and burn CDs and DVDs with this PC.
The screen adopts a 16: 9 format suitable for video playback and a definition of 1600×900, classic specifications for a 17 inch.

Those who wish to take advantage of high capacity and responsiveness will be delighted to find a hybrid storage solution on board. It combines a fast 128 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main software, with a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB capable of accommodating the rest.
In concrete terms, the SSD guarantees a much smoother and more responsive operation than a simple hard drive. In practice, for example, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops and software launches.
On a daily basis, the SSD advantageously supports the heart of this computer which delivers good performance in everyday use, such as office automation and surfing the Internet.
It consists of a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking as well as an AMD Picasso APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor low consumption Ryzen 3 3250U.
However, it should be borne in mind that just like the Core i3s, the Ryzen 3 show their limits in applications requiring processor resources.
The Ryzen 3 3250U integrates within it the Radeon Vega 3 graphics part which allows you to view photos and videos. Modest, it does not come with a dedicated graphics card. Therefore, this PC is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming.
This computer adopts a very comfortable 17-inch format for mainly sedentary use (eg at home). For a large format PC, however, its weight is contained. As for autonomy, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
