Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-by2022nf
This laptop PC with an ebony black mesh pattern textured finish has a discreet allure.
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes, it is equipped with a correct connection consisting of a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged into it .
On the display side, there is a screen whose anti-reflective treatment makes it less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors). It has the advantage of reproducing colors more faithfully than average, without however reaching the levels of high-end IPS panels for example. For the rest, the screen adopts classic specifications with its 16: 9 format suitable for playing videos and its definition of 1600×900.
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-by2022nf
The HP 17-by2022nf is a 17 inch laptop designed for basic everyday use.
It benefits from a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking which advantageously supports the processor. In this case, it is an entry-level very low-power Intel Celeron Dual Core N4020 Gemini Lake Refresh.
This represents the limiting factor of this configuration. Modest, it quickly shows itself to be sluggish under software that is greedy in processor resources, which implies slowdowns.
Concretely, this laptop PC is suitable for everyday use, such as office automation and surfing the Internet. As a bonus, it allows you to watch photos and videos thanks to the Intel UHD 600 solution housed within the processor.
To install and store multiple software and files on this discreet black laptop, we find here a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB.
As for the battery life of about 5 hours on battery in light use, it is not the strong point of this PC logically in view of the price charged but also of its large format. A 17 inch is not the most easily transportable but is comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
