Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1014nf
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook has an elegant and discreet look with its thin frame and light natural silver cover, ash silver keyboard frame, brushed vertical pattern (dixit HP).
In addition, this hybrid laptop stands out for the fact that it can be converted into a Tablet because it can be opened 360 °. And its screen is of course adorned with multi-touch touch technology. Therefore, by simply placing at least one finger on the panel and pressing / gesturing, one can interact with the system and the software.
Due to its tactile aspect, the screen is glossy: it therefore gives color punch but is sensitive to reflections in bright environments (eg outdoors).
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen benefits from large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, its colorimetry is average, below that of more high-end IPS panels. But with its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition, the screen lends itself well to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content.
This 2-in-1 laptop PC also benefits from a backlighting system for the keys of the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing them correctly in reduced lighting conditions.
In terms of connectivity, it is properly equipped with its USB-C, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote communications and connections, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, its audio port without forgetting its 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Performance, battery life of the HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1014nf
The HP Pavilion x360 15-dq1014nf is a 15-inch High Definition laptop convertible into a Tablet designed for everyday mobile use.
It delivers good general performance able to satisfy users who do not need graphics power (for example to play) because it does not embed a dedicated graphics card.
This 2-in-1 Ultrabook is indeed based on 8 GB of RAM as well as a low-consumption Comet Lake i5-10210U Quad Core processor which incorporates a modest Intel UHD 620 graphics part for viewing photos and videos.
On a daily basis, onboard SSD storage clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity compared to a hard drive. Compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent, less energy-consuming, more robust but also much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, one benefits for example of starts / stops and launches of software much faster than with a simple hard disk.
Here the SSD offers a capacity of 512 GB similar to the standard of hard disks. If you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, expect about 6 hours of operation on battery light use for this hybrid Ultrabook convertible into Tablet whose fineness and weight contained at less than 2 kg facilitate transport.
