Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion 15-cs3042nf
This thin and light versatile Ultrabook that can be recharged at around 50% in 45 minutes sports an elegant and discreet design with its mineral silver cover chassis, natural silver keyboard frame with anodized sandblasted finish (dixit HP).
It is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, not forgetting 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
The chiclet keyboard benefits from a solution to backlight it, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dim light environment.
With its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition, the screen is well suited for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than a glossy panel in a light environment (ex: outdoor). As its panel is TN and not IPS, its viewing angles are limited and its standard colorimetry.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion 15-cs3042nf
The HP Pavilion 15-cs3042nf is for those looking for a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use.
The general performance it delivers is in fact able to suit many users because it is structured around a good amount of RAM of 16 GB above average and very significant in multitasking (and to see this coming level). But also of a low-consumption Quad Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake processor that we tested .
It has the distinction of integrating the graphics solution Iris Plus Graphics G7 has the distinction of being much more efficient than the usual Intel UHD 620. It is positioned below the dedicated GeForce MX250 card.
So thanks to this thin and light PC – and although it does not have a dedicated graphics card, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that are not too greedy in 3D resources.
To carry out work requiring processor resources regularly, we can however benefit from turning rather to a computer based on a non-low power processor.
Still, this elegant silver Ultrabook may interest those who wish to benefit from both great fluidity in use and high capacity.
It offers a total storage of 1.1 TB composed of an SSD intended to accommodate the system as well as the main software, and a hard disk with a large capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest.
Thanks to the SSD, this versatile Ultrabook is much more reactive in everyday life than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. We take advantage for example thanks to the SSD of starts / stops, launches of applications / games and processing much faster, and we can get faster on the cards of online games.
Finally in terms of autonomy, put on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose finesse and contained weight facilitate transport.
