HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf against the competition
HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf currently shown at promotion on HP France and is positioned as the only one in its category that offers a faithful color screen with the latest processor (Alder Lake) and huge amount of RAM.
HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf chassis, connectors, display
It sports an elegant appearance with a steel gray aluminum design with a sandblasted finish and a glossy finish.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile Ultrabook is good, including 1 USB-C, a handy HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV for example, the ax Wi-Fi wireless module (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 for remote connection and communication, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) which guarantee transfers are carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
You can authenticate yourself with fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology thanks to the integrated biometric reader.
The chiclet keyboard keys can be backlit, which is handy to better distinguish them when the ambient light is low.
Most users will appreciate the screen as it reproduces colors more accurately than average while offering good vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to the sRGB and IPS specs. In addition, the screen is suitable for viewing video and High Definition content more commonly thanks to its precise 16:9 format and 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).
Performance, autonomy HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf
The HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf is a High Definition laptop designed for general purpose mobile use.
It combines a low-power Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1235U processor with 10 hybrid cores linked to a good amount of 16 GB of RAM to provide good general performance that can suit multiple users.
Those who occasionally do simple multimedia work using a multicore and RAM will appreciate the services these cores provide, such as photo editing or video conversion.
However, if the goal is to frequently perform work that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to choose a PC that is equipped with a low-power processor and/or dedicated graphics card that is adequate.
The point of the dedicated graphics card here is that all graphics are supported by the Intel Iris Xe graphics section which is placed directly on the Alder Lake-U Core i5. Obviously, you can view photos and videos but also enjoy simple games.
SSD storage definitely increases its responsiveness and daily fluidity compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, start / stop, processing and launching software is much faster in particular, and we reach faster online gaming cards.
It must be said that SSDs are much faster than hard drives but also more energy efficient, more powerful and quiet. With a capacity of 512 GB, the SSD offers capacity that is up to standard hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can rely on external storage units. Favoring USB-C / USB 3.0 devices is then an interesting option to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by lightness and finesse, bet about 7 hours on battery under light use.
