Chassis, connector, screen of HP 15s-eq2026nf
50% rechargeable in 45 minutes, this versatile laptop has a thin and light silver design that gives it a sober and elegant look.
This laptop has proper connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, 1 audio port, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communication, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, e.g. . audio port or even 2 USB 3.0 (both USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the external devices are connected to it.
Too bad, however, not to find newer and more efficient Wi-Fi ax. We also regret, at this price level, the absence of a backlight solution for the keyboard keys.
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. Since it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (e.g. outside). It is a pity, however, that the panel is TN and not IPS, because then the viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, would have been important.
Performance, autonomy for HP 15s-eq2026nf
The HP 15s-eq2026nf is a thin and light High Definition 15-inch laptop designed for everyday use.
Based on 16 GB of RAM and a low-power Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne AMD Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor, this versatile laptop delivers good overall performance that is able to satisfy many users.
Creators who do modest multimedia work using RAM and multicore will be able to make do with this core, for example for photo editing or video conversion.
On the other hand, if the purpose is to frequently perform work that consumes processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card .
Point of dedicated graphics card embedded in this thin and light laptop. As a result, all the graphics are controlled by the Radeon Vega 7, a solution directly integrated into the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core.
Thanks to Radeon Vega 7, you can still view photos and videos, but also play light titles.
Storage is entrusted to a silent SSD, but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy consuming and much faster. As a result, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. As a result, thanks to the SSD, we achieve in particular much faster start/stop, processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD here offers a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives. However, in the event that it would be too reasonable, we can of course rely on an external storage device. Choosing a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to achieve fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this mobile computer, whose finesse and controlled weight make it as easy to transport as an Ultrabook, expect around 5 hours of battery life with light use.
