HP 15s-fq5018nf against the competition
The HP 15s-fq5018nf is currently showing promotion at home Darty and Fnac. It satisfies many competitors in its category where it is the only one that offers the latest processor with high core count (Alder Lake).
HP 15s-fq5018nf chassis, connectors, display
It has a simple and elegant appearance with a thin and light Natural Silver design.
This versatile laptop PC is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless module (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connection and communication, a handy HDMI video output for easily connecting it to a TV for example, an audio port or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in into it.
Some people will appreciate the ability to authenticate with biometric recognition through the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
You can of course backlight the chiclet keyboard keys, which is handy for better distinguishing them if ambient light is limited.
The screen is suitable for displaying videos and wider High Definition content because it adopts the 16:9 format coupled with Full HD definition. Because it is anti-reflective, the screen is also easier to read than a glossy panel in bright environments (e.g. outside). It’s a shame that the screen doesn’t adopt IPS technology which would guarantee significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, as well as more accurate colorimetry than the average in high-end editions.
Performance, autonomy HP 15s-fq5018nf
The HP 15s-fq5018nf is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop computer intended for versatile, everyday mobile use.
Many users will be attracted by the general performance delivered by this thin and light versatile laptop PC as it is equipped with a low-power Intel Alder Lake Core i7-1255U processor combined with 16 GB of RAM.
This core is perfect for simple multimedia processing using multicore and therefore 10 hybrid cores from Core i7 Alder Lake-U, as well as RAM. We mainly think about photo editing and video conversion.
Thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the Core i7 hybrid, you can also watch photos and videos but also play simple titles without a dedicated graphics card.
However, for frequent work requiring processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to choose a PC equipped with a non-low power processor and/or sufficient dedicated graphics card.
Storage is entrusted to a 512 GB SSD, a capacity that is in accordance with standard hard drives. However, if more space is needed, an external storage unit can be used. Favoring USB-C / USB 3.0 devices is then an interesting option to take advantage of fast transfers.
However, SSDs offer several advantages over simple hard drives: greater endurance, lower energy consumption, quieter operation, or even higher speeds.
Specifically, an SSD guarantees much faster start/stop, processing and software launch than a hard disk, or even faster arrival on online game cards.
As for autonomy, count on around 7 hours of battery operation under light use for this versatile Ultrabook whose power and weight make it easy to transport.
