Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf
Thin and light, this versatile laptop with a Blue Mist design in aluminum has an elegant and discreet look.
This laptop is well-equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV, for example its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for connections and communication, its audio port and its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The Chiclet keyboard is adorned with a practical key backlight solution to better distinguish them in case of limited ambient light.
The screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to its IPS technology, which, however, is not advanced, as the colorimetry here is average. In any case, the screen is well suited for viewing High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD resolution and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Performance, autonomy for HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf
The HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf is a slim and lightweight 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile mobile use.
It is equipped with a silent SSD storage, but also less energy-intensive than a hard drive, more shock-resistant and much faster. Consequently, the SSD ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive, which in particular involves much faster boot / stop, processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards of queued games.
Despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card, you can view photos and videos, but also play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics part integrated in the processor.
Radeon Vega 7 is directly integrated in AMD Cezanne low-power APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U processor, a Hexa Core here combined with a good amount above the average 16 GB RAM.
The overall performance from this core is able to satisfy a number of users.
And especially those who want to perform modest multimedia work from time to time using multicore and RAM, such as photo editing or video conversion.

In the event that 512 GB on the SSD is insufficient, the capacity corresponds to what standard hard drives offer, but we can of course turn to an external storage device. Choosing a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile laptop, whose thin and contained weight facilitates transport, then opt for about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
