For common use as office automation, the HP 17-cp0066nf is a cheap laptop that suits with its comfortable 17-inch large form factor and fast 512GB SSD storage that boosts its responsiveness. This discreet black laptop is based on 8 GB of RAM and an AMD Picasso Athlon Gold processor and also benefits from USB-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-cp0066nf
Rechargeable to about 50% in 45 minutes, this laptop all dressed in black relatively thin and light sports a look all in sobriety.
This large format laptop is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB-C very appreciable at this price level. There is also a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
The screen stands out for its anti-reflective treatment making it more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (eg exterior) and less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use. For the rest, it adopts classic features for a 17-inch, namely a definition of 1600×900 as well as a 16/9th format that lends itself well to video playback.
PERFORMANCE, battery life of the HP 17-cp0066nf
The HP 17-cp0066nf is a 17-inch laptop intended for everyday use.
In this field, as in office automation and Internet surfing, it delivers good performance because it integrates a good amount of RAM of 8 GB very useful in multitasking as well as a processor AMD low consumption APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Athlon Gold 3150U Dual Core Picasso.
The latter shows its limits under CPU-intensive software, which implies slowdowns. In any case, it has the merit of housing within it the Radeon Vega 3, a graphics solution certainly modest but which compensates for the absence of a dedicated graphics card and still allows you to watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, HP chooses an SSD that is silent but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy-consuming and much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard disk. Thus, thanks to the SSD, the starts/stops and launches of applications are much faster for example.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, capacity in line with what hard drives offer as standard. Of course, in the event that this proves to be too fair, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose weight and finesse are controlled for a 17-inch model which is however not the most easily transportable there is, bet on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use. In any case, it should be noted that a 17-inch offers the advantage of being particularly comfortable in the context of a mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
