Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Envy 13-aq1011nf
Its natural silver chassis with an anodized finish and fine sandblasted finish gives it an elegant and discreet appearance. You can recharge it to 50% in 45 minutes.
The webcam is distinguished by its Kill Switch function, a shutdown device to better protect privacy.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and particularly to videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. With its IPS technology, it has comfortable horizontal and vertical viewing angles and offers more faithful colorimetry than the average. The screen treatment is brilliant. As a result, the colors stand out, but the screen is more sensitive to reflections in a light environment (eg outside) than an anti-reflective screen.
In terms of connectivity, it is properly equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its Bluetooth 5 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.Too bad however to note the absence of HDMI video output. However if you need it, you can go through a USB 3.0 to HDMI or USB-C to HDMI adapter .
In addition, you can authenticate yourself on the system by fingerprint recognition thanks to the integrated biometric reader, and this via Windows Hello technology.
A backlight system of course equips the chiclet keyboard which is useful for discerning its keys in the dark.
Performance, Battery life of the HP Envy 13-aq1011nf
The HP Envy 13-aq1011nf is intended for those who wish to acquire a compact portable PC for general purpose mobile use.
It has SSD storage with a large capacity of 1 TB rivaling hard drives. But compared to the latter, the SSD is silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and above all much faster.
Therefore in practice the SSD guarantees that this PC is much more fluid and responsive than if it were based on a simple hard drive. We take advantage of much faster software launches and starts / stops but also a faster arrival on online game cards.
Demanding players will pass their way but those who wish to indulge in games that are not too greedy and are ready for concessions may be interested in this Ultrabook which embeds the graphics card GeForce MX250 from NVIDIA.
Like the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the processor, the GeForce MX250 of course allows you to view photos and videos.
The Intel UHD 630 is nevertheless used to the maximum by the integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology because it is more energy efficient than the GeForce MX250 and therefore promotes Battery life. The GeForce MX250 is therefore activated to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 620.
The latter is housed in the Quad Core i7-10510U low consumption Comet Lake processor. It is associated here with a good amount of RAM of 16 GB above the average which makes it possible to see well coming in the matter and proves appreciable in multitasking.
This duo is able to satisfy many users in terms of general performance. It should however be noted that to regularly carry out work requiring demanding processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low power processor.
Finally in terms of Battery life, this Ultrabook easy to transport by its lightness, its compactness and its finesse will appeal to nomads who wish to be able to use their computer for many hours on battery. Table indeed on about 8:30 of operation far from a power outlet, and more in lighter use.
