Aesthetically, the Pavilion abandons the aesthetic with linear pattern seen on the Pavilion 15-au and enjoys a visible rise in range. Now the back of the gray lid is covered with metal to ensure more robustness during transport (plastic elsewhere). The ultrabook also inherits from the elevated hinge system hitherto only previewed on the Envy (range above). This will raise the base slightly at the opening of the lid for a better comfort of capture and a better circulation of the air. Another point of importance, the chassis is slightly more compact and tapered 2.5 mm without losing the numeric keypad. Its weight remains almost identical (to 5 gr) and proves valuable in displacements. Too bad that HP apparently did not have the keyboard
Side autonomy, one can expect that the HP Pavilion 15-cc500nf equivalents its predecessor with approximately 5 hours in Internet browsing. This is a correct result.
Storage is at the heart of this configuration and opts for a hybrid solution combining a dedicated SSD to foster the responsiveness of the system to a storage-rich hard drive. Thanks to the 128 GB SSD, where the operating system and most programs and games can sit, loading times are noticeably shorter and Windows is more fluid, while the 1TB hard drive takes over lodge all your toy library.
Ideal for its office vocation, architecture is based on a Core i3 Kaby Lake low consumption and 6 GB of RAM (DDR4). This duo will do honor to all common tasks such as surfing the web, playing video or working on Office. Beyond that, publishing or other more demanding missions will only be authorized in very limited proportions, but the amount of RAM slightly higher than the standard will benefit multitasking enthusiasts.
Little concerned with this configuration in the absence of a dedicated graphics card, players will still be able to launch some old titles and low demands in Full HD with a smooth fluidity.
Regarding the screen of this HP Pavilion 15-cc500nf, the balance is a little less enthusiastic, the fault with its simple TN panel that causes narrow viewing angles. Apart from that, its Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is beneficial with its high display density allowing viewing of High Definition content under the best conditions and modulating the display while its matte processing barriers to reflections in a luminous environment.
Connectivity is a good forward and accommodates a USB port 3.1 Type-C in addition to the other two standard USB 3.1 ports as well as Ethernet Gigabit. There is also an SD card reader and an HDMI output. The latest generation of Bluetooth 4.2 and Wifi AC modules are also on the menu for ever faster wireless data exchange.
