Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 255 G7 (10R26EA)
With its Asteroid Silver chassis, it has an elegant and discreet look.
It is equipped with a TPM 2.0 security chip and runs under Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 thanks to its advanced security and network management tools such as BitLocker.
This lightweight laptop has a correct connection consisting of a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, a wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 module to connect and communicate to distance, Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing faster transfers than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
In addition, this PC houses an optical unit on the right, whereas it has become rarer in recent years due to dematerialization and finesse, especially for a PC whose format is less than 17 inches.
Concretely, you can read, watch and burn CDs and DVDs with this laptop.
The screen is distinguished by its anti-reflective treatment, making it less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny panel and more readable in bright surroundings (eg outdoors). For the rest, it adopts classic specifications: definition of 1366×768 and 16 / 9th format lending itself well to video playback.
Performance, battery life of the HP 255 G7 (10R26EA)
The HP 255 G7 (10R26EA) is a lightweight 15-inch laptop designed for everyday mobile use.
In not too extensive multitasking and current use, this light PC delivers correct performance because it is based on 4 GB of RAM and an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 3200U low consumption Picasso processor.
Like the Intel Core i3 (Turbo), the Ryzen 3 reveals its limits under software requiring processor resources.
The Ryzen 3 houses in any case the Radeon Vega 3 graphics solution which allows you to view photos and videos. However, as it is not backed by a dedicated GPU, this laptop is not suitable for heavy graphics work such as games.
On the storage side, HP has chosen here a hard drive with a standard capacity of 500 GB which can still accommodate a lot of software and files.
As for autonomy, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight less than 2 kg facilitates transport.
