Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP 14s-dq2017nf
It has an elegant and discreet look with its thin and light ebony black design.
This versatile Ultrabook, which can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes, is well-equipped for connection with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.02 wireless modules for remote connections and communication, its port audio, its useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, or its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Lovers of videos and a wider range of High Definition content will be pleased that the screen uses a 16: 9 format combined with a precise Full HD definition that is better than the 1366 × 768 standard. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, autonomy for HP 14s-dq2017nf
The HP 14s-dq2017nf is a responsive, compact laptop designed for general on-the-go use.
For everyday use, such as office automation and Internet browsing, including viewing photos and videos, but also playing light titles, this slim and lightweight laptop is perfectly suited.
This discreet black Ultrabook is actually built around a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Core i3-1115G4 processor that integrates the Intel UHD G4 graphics part and 8 GB of RAM.
Note, however, that the Core i3 reveals its limits under processor-intensive software, such as the AMD Ryzen 3 and less powerful processors of course.
On the storage side, there is an SSD, which significantly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Compared to the latter, let’s emphasize the key benefits of an SSD: greater robustness, silent operation, reduced energy consumption, or even greater speed.
Best known price: 499 €
Specifically, the software is launched thanks to the SSD, for example, faster, while the start / stops are also much faster, and we reach the online playing cards faster.
Here we find a 256 GB SSD, a capacity of less than half of what standard hard drives offer, enough to hold light and / or get files / software. Of course, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage device. Choosing a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to take advantage of fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, charge about 6 hours on battery when easily using this Ultrabook, whose compactness, finesse and lightness facilitate transport.
