Chassis, connector, screen of HP 17-cp0296nf
It has a discreet appearance with its relatively thin and light black design for a 17 inch.
Rechargeable to around 50% in 45 minutes, this laptop is equipped with good connectivity options consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, modules without – Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 cable for remote connections and communication, audio and Ethernet ports or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantee faster transfers than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected above.
Not surprisingly at this price level we find a definition of 1600×900 of the screen lower than Full HD combined with a 16:9 format that is well suited for video playback, classic specifications. However, the screen is distinguished by its anti-reflective treatment, which makes it more readable in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) and less tiring for the eyes over a longer period.
Performance, autonomy for HP 17-cp0296nf
The HP 17-cp0296nf is a large format laptop designed for everyday use and offers a very high storage capacity.
It actually offers 1.2TB in total by combining a fast 256GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main software, with a hard drive with a substantial capacity of 1000GB to accommodate more files and software as a bonus.
It is clear that here we get a very wide space that makes it possible to see well to get to this level.
In addition, the SSD clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity in use compared to a simple hard drive, which in particular means much faster application launch and start/stop.

The SSD therefore supports the heart of this computer very well, which is suitable for everyday use such as office automation and internet surfing.
Because it’s built around a good amount of 8GB of RAM and a low-power AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Athlon Silver 3050U Dual Core Picasso entry-level processor.
AMD Athlon reveals its limitations during CPU-intensive software, resulting in slowdowns.
In any case, it integrates the Radeon Vega 2 graphics solution, thanks to which you can view photos and videos, but which, of course, is not designed for games.
In terms of autonomy, expect around 5 hours of battery life with light use, certainly relatively thin and light for a 17 inch. But this large format is, by its very nature, not the most easily transportable. On the other hand, it is comfortable for mainly sedentary use (e.g. at home).
