Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-cp0221nf
Fun and light, this versatile laptop PC adopts a natural silver design painted cover and base, molded keyboard frame with vertical brushed pattern giving it an elegant and discreet look.
Rechargeable to about 50% in 45 minutes, it has a good connection including 1 USB-C, an HDMI video output useful for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac modules and Bluetooth 4.2 for remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports not to mention 2 USB 3.0 (all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the ‘USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
The screen is distinguished by its anti-reflective treatment making it less tiring for the eyes over a long period of time than a shiny panel and more readable in bright environments (eg outdoors). In addition, the colors it displays are more faithful than the average, without reaching the colorimetry of high-end tiles, of course, but this is appreciable. With its definition of 1600×900 and its 16: 9 format, the screen adopts characteristics and lends itself well to video playback. On the other hand, lovers of High Definition will turn to a PC with a Full HD screen or will connect this PC to a monitor / TV at least Full HD.
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-cp0221nf
The HP 17-cp0221nf is a 17-inch laptop with a large storage capacity and intended for general-purpose general use.
It offers a total space of 1.1 TB above average via a hybrid storage solution combining a 128 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main software, the rest being housed on the hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 Go.
The SSD has several advantages compared to a hard drive: greater resistance to shocks, lower energy consumption, silence and higher speed.
In concrete terms, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we obtain much faster starts / stops, for example, just like processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because despite the lack of a dedicated graphics card, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that do not consume much graphics resources thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 solution housed within the processor.
It is more precisely an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 500U Lucienne low consumption Hexa Core, here coupled with 8 GB of RAM to provide good general performance able to satisfy many users, including those who occasionally do modest work using multicore.
As for the battery life of this computer whose transport is facilitated by its contained weight and its finesse, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use. Due to its large format, however, this PC is not the most easily transportable that is, but is comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
