Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP 17-cp1016nf

This thin, relatively light laptop, which can be recharged to about 50% in 45 minutes, assumes a sober and elegant look.

It is equipped with a good connection consisting of 1 USB-C, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV, for example Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5 wireless modules for connections and remote communication, Ethernet and audio ports, but also 2 USB 3.0 (all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices to it.

Too bad, however, not to find the Wi-Fi ax newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac, and to notice the absence of a backlight solution for the chiclet keyboard …

In any case, lovers of videos and more broadly of High Definition content will appreciate that the screen uses a 16: 9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition. If its colorimetry is average, IPS technology still provides significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also less tiring for the eyes in length than a shiny panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors).

Performance, autonomy for HP 17-cp1016nf

The HP 17-cp1016nf is a full-size laptop designed for everyday use.

Many users will be pleased with the overall performance provided by this relatively lightweight thin laptop because it is built around 16GB of RAM and a low power AMD Ryzen 7 5825U Octo Core Barcelo APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor.

In addition, those who perform modest multimedia processing by utilizing RAM and multicores (eg photo editing, video coding) will be able to make do with this core. On the other hand, for often heavy work in processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to turn to a PC equipped with a non-low-power processor and / or a suitably dedicated graphics card.

It is possible to view photos and videos, but also play light titles with this computer, even if it does not have a dedicated graphics card, thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics part directly integrated in the Barcelo Octo Core Ryzen 7.

On the storage side, there is an SSD that competes with hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB, while at the same time being quieter, more robust, less energy consuming and much faster.

Result thanks to the SSD, start / stop, processing and launching applications is much faster, for example, and we get faster on the cards in online games. More generally, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.

Of course, in case we need more space, we can use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.

However, if the weight and finesse contained in this computer are noticeable to lug around, due to its large format, it is not one of the easiest to transport available. Still, a 17 inch is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
In terms of autonomy, expect approximately 5 hours of battery operation with light use.
