Versatile, the HP 17-ca1047nf 17-inch 100% sRGB IPS Anti-Glare Laptop PC delivers high-capacity hybrid storage with fast SSD for enhanced responsiveness. Sleek with its silver design, it relies on an AMD Ryzen 5 Picasso processor and a fair amount of RAM. In addition, thanks to the Radeon Vega graphics part, it is able to run low-consumption games. Too bad the connection does not follow, with Wi-Fi n instead of Wi-Fi ac and USB 3.1 Type-C point.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 17-ca1047nf
With its natural silver cover and base frame, ash silver keyboard frame with brushed vertical pattern (dixit HP), this laptop, rechargeable to around 50% in 45 minutes, has an elegant and discreet design.
In terms of connectivity, it is less well equipped than the average with no USB 3.1 Type-C and Wi-Fi confined to the Wi-Fi n standard instead of Wi-Fi ac (or ax).
We therefore find here a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect this PC to a monitor or a TV for example, Wi-Fi n modules and therefore Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless 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 up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 peripherals into them.
The display will appeal to many more potential users with its 100% sRGB and IPS features. The latter imply a more faithful than average colorimetry as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Anti-reflective coating, the screen offers better visibility than a shiny panel in bright environments (eg outdoors) and is more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
As it also adopts a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition, the screen is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content.
Performance, battery life of the HP 17-ca1047nf
The HP 17-ca1047nf is aimed at those who wish to equip themselves with a large format laptop PC offering a large storage space, for a general versatile use.
It offers a high total capacity of no less than 1.2TB, which is more than the average. Hybrid, the storage offers both great responsiveness thanks to the 256 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main software, and a large capacity thanks to the 1000 GB hard drive capable of accommodating multiple files and software.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive. This translates concretely, for example, into much faster starts / stops and launches of applications, or by a faster arrival on the maps of online games.
With this elegant PC, we can indeed consider playing titles that do not require much graphics resources although it is not equipped with a dedicated graphics card. How? ‘Or’ What ? Thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 solution integrated within the Quad Core AMD processor: it is close to an entry-level graphics card and significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors.
We can therefore also watch photos and videos on this laptop whose general performance is able to satisfy many users. Its core consists of 8 GB of RAM and an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Quad Core low-power Ryzen 5 3500U Picasso processor.
Finally in terms of autonomy, expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight is contained for a 17 inches. But keep in mind that this format is particularly comfortable for predominantly sedentary use (eg at home).
