Chassis, connector, screen of HP Pavilion 15-eh1003sf
It has an elegant and original design with its thin and light Blue Mist aluminum frame.
This versatile laptop has good connectivity options, including 1 USB-C, an audio port, wireless Wi-Fi ax modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for connections and communication, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or a TV, for example, or even 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 , if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (e.g. outside). It also has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, thanks to its IPS technology, though not advanced as the colorimetry here is classic.
With its 16:9 format and precise Full HD definition, the screen is very suitable for showing videos and more general High Definition content.

On the storage side, there’s an SSD, which clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a day-to-day basis compared to a simple hard drive. Because an SSD is much faster and offers other additional benefits such as greater robustness, lower energy consumption or even silent operation.
Still, in practice, the SSD especially guarantees much faster start/stop, processing and launch of applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, expect around 7 hours of battery life in light use for this versatile laptop whose transport is as easy as that of an Ultrabook thanks to its controlled weight and its finesse.
