Chassis, connectors, HP Pavilion 15-cs0043nf display
Its natural mineral silver frame silver frame frame, anodized sandblasted shell, base and matte keyboard frame pattern (dixit HP), gives it an elegant and discreet look. It can be recharged at 50% in 45 minutes.
Connectivity side, this Ultrabook competes with many more expensive laptops. There are 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless Bluetooth 4.2 modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet ports and audio and 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected.
In addition one can backlight the chiclet keyboard of this thin and light portable, unusual feature at this price level.
The screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1366×768 and 16 / 9th format suitable for playing videos. However, it is distinguished by its antireflection treatment which makes it more legible in bright environment (eg outside) a glossy slab.
Performance, battery life of the HP Pavilion 15-cs0043nf
The HP Pavilion 15-cs0043nf is a compact 15-inch notebook designed for everyday use.
In this area as surfing the Internet and office, it delivers good performance thanks to its Kaby Lake Refresh Turbo Core i3-8130U low power processor. As it is associated with a standard RAM amount of 4 GB however, this computer shows its limits in multitasking.
The heart of this Ultrabook is in any case advantageously supported by hybrid storage including SSD. Thanks to the SSD indeed, one benefits from a much more fluid and reactive operation than with a simple hard disk. Starting / stopping and launching applications are thus much faster.
The SSD is intended in practice to host the system and the main software with its 128 GB. The rest can be placed on the hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB that accompanies it.
Not surprisingly at this price level, no dedicated GPU is shipped. This Ultrabook is therefore not intended for heavy graphics such as games. Of course, it allows you to watch photos and videos thanks to the modest performance of the Intel UHD 620 integrated in the Core i3 Turbo.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the compactness, the smoothness and the weight under the bar of 2 kg, plan about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
