Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-cp0221nf
All dressed in black, this thin and light laptop PC that can be recharged to about 50% in 45 minutes has a discreet look.
It is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports, a practical HDMI video output in order to to easily connect it to a monitor or TV, for example, but also to 2 USB 3.0 (all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
With its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel and less tiring for the eyes in the long run. For the rest, the screen adopts classic specifications with its 16: 9 format lending itself well to video playback and its definition of 1600×900.
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-cp0023nf
The HP 17-cp0023nf is a full-size laptop computer designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It actually delivers good overall performance that is suitable for a number of users because it incorporates 8 GB of RAM coupled with a low-power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne Hexa Core processor.
The latter has the advantage of integrating the Radeon Vega 7, a graphics solution that is certainly modest but which allows you to watch photos and videos or even to indulge in light games.
On the storage side, there is an SSD which is silent but also less energy consuming than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games. In general, the SSD induces a much more responsive and fluid operation than a simple hard drive.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for battery life, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose controlled weight and finesse facilitate transport which is however not the easiest for a mobile computer because of this large format . However, the latter is very comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
