HP Pavilion 15-eh1052nf against the competition
HP Pavilion 15-eh1052nf currently marketed by French HP and is positioned as one of the few in its category to offer such a powerful processor with a fingerprint reader and backlit keyboard, in a thin and light chassis. But it satisfies a cheaper competitor that offers 16GB of RAM.
HP Pavilion 15-eh1052nf chassis, connectors, display
It has an elegant and discreet look with a thin and light Natural Silver aluminum design.
This versatile laptop incorporates good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for connection and communication, a handy HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV via eg, audio port or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
You can authenticate yourself in a simple and secure biometric way using a fingerprint reader, TPM 2.0 security chip, and Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very convenient for better distinguishing the keys when the ambient light is low.
The screen is suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos because of its Full HD definition and 16:9 format. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it easier to read in bright environments (e.g. outside) than glossy panels. It’s a shame, however, not having to deal with an IPS panel which would at least ensure significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
Performance, autonomy HP Pavilion 15-eh1052nf
The HP Pavilion 15-eh1052nf is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop intended for general-purpose mobile use.
It benefits from a good amount of 12 GB RAM here coupled with a low power AMD Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor to provide good general performance capable of satisfying a wide range of users.
And especially those who want to do simple multimedia work using RAM and multicore, such as video conversion or photo editing.
The Ryzen 5 also offers the benefits of hosting the Radeon Vega 7, a graphics solution that lets you watch photos and videos but also play light titles. And this is while there is no dedicated graphics card installed.
On the storage side, there’s an SSD that rivals hard drive standards in terms of capacity at 512GB while being quiet, energy efficient, more powerful, and much faster.
In concrete terms, SSDs guarantee much better responsiveness and fluidity than hard drives every day.
Thanks to SSD, we get much faster start / stop, processing and launching of software, or even faster arrival in online game cards.
Of course, if 512 GB is too narrow, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of the fast transfers.
As for autonomy, count on around 7 hours of battery operation under light use for this versatile computer with an elegant silver design that transports as easily as an Ultrabook thanks to its controlled weight and finesse.
