Performance, battery life of the HP Envy 13-ba0000sf
The HP Envy 13-ba0000sf is a thin and light compact laptop PC intended for everyday mobile use.
In terms of battery life, it is indeed able to hold about 8 hours on battery in light use. It is all the more appreciable that this Ultrabook is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its delicacy and its lightness.
However, this versatile ultraportable delivers good overall performance with its 8 GB of RAM and its low-power Intel Quad Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake processor.
In addition, the latter houses within it the Intel Iris Plus G7 graphics part that we tested and whose performance is superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
As a result, this elegant silver laptop does not include a card. dedicated graphics, it allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles that do not consume much graphic resources.
That being said, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card if one often wishes to carry out work that consumes a lot of processor and / or graphics resources.
In any case, the onboard SSD storage clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Because it is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent.
As a result, thanks to the SSD, we benefit, for example, from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It is a 512 GB SSD that we find here integrated, capacity similar to the standard of hard disks. But if you need more space, you can obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB-3.0 / Thunderbolt / USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
