HP 14s-fq1012nf over the competition

Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP 14s-fq1012nf
Rechargeable to about 50% in 45 minutes, this thin and lightweight versatile laptop in natural silver design has an elegant and discreet look.
The integrated connection is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for communication and remote connections, a sound port but also 2 USB 3.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
However, we regret that we did not have to deal with newer and more efficient Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5 modules, as well as the absence of backlighting on the chiclet keyboard.
On the other hand, some would appreciate being able to authenticate by fingerprint recognition via the integrated biometric reader and Windows Hello technology.
The screen is well suited for viewing High Definition content such as videos with its Full HD resolution and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy for HP 14s-fq1012nf
The HP 14s-fq1012nf is a responsive, compact High Definition laptop designed for general mobile use.
It delivers good overall performance that is able to suit a range of users because it is based on a low power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Lucienne Ryzen 5 5500U processor and 16 GB RAM, which is very noticeable in multitasking .
This kernel may be sufficient for those performing modest processing using multicore or RAM, such as photo editing or video encoding.
Additionally, while there is no dedicated graphics card on board, you can view photos and videos, but also play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution integrated into the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core.
On the storage side, there is not surprisingly an SSD that competes with hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy consuming, more robust and much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much faster start / stop, processing and application launches than a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on online playing cards. More generally, the SSD provides much better responsiveness and agility on a daily basis.
Of course, in the event that 512 GB turns out to be too tight, you can rely on an external storage device, such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device, to take advantage of fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, count on about 8 hours of battery life in easy use of this versatile mobile computer that is as easy to carry as an Ultrabook thanks to its contained weight, its compactness and its finesse.
