Chassis, connections, screen of the HP 15s-fq5020nf

With its thin and light Natural Silver design, this versatile laptop has an elegant and discreet look.

This Ultrabook is equipped with below-average wireless connectivity: Wi-Fi 5 ac (1×1) and Bluetooth 4.2, instead of more recent and efficient Wi-Fi 6 ax (2×2) and Bluetooth 5 .
There is also 1 USB-C, an audio port, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV for example, but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than to USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.

It is regrettable at this price level to note the absence of backlighting on the chiclet keyboard. Some will also deplore the fact that no biometric solution is integrated.

Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen ensures better visibility in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a shiny panel.
The Full HD screen also lends itself well to displaying videos due to its 16:9 format.
On the other hand, as it is not IPS but TN, its viewing angles are limited while its colorimetry is average.

Performance, autonomy of the HP 15s-fq5020nf

The HP 15s-fq5020nf is an elegant, thin and light 15-inch laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.

In terms of autonomy, it is in fact able to last around 7 hours on battery in light use while its finesse and low weight make it easy to transport. Some looking for a Student laptop may be interested.

As it is based on 16 GB of RAM and is driven by a low-consumption Intel Core i7-1255U Alder Lake processor with 10 hybrid cores and an integrated Iris Xe graphics solution, this Ultrabook delivers good performance in everyday use.

Thanks to these components, you can view photos but also play light games.
But also carry out small multimedia processing taking advantage of RAM and multi-core, such as light video encoding or photo editing.

On the storage side, like many models on the market, we find a 512 GB SSD.
Of course, if you need more space, you can use an external storage module, preferably USB 3.0/USB-C to benefit from fast transfers.

In any case, remember that an SSD is more resistant to shock than a hard drive but also silent, consumes less energy and is much faster.

As a result, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a hard drive.

So starting/stopping is faster, as is carrying out processing, launching applications or even accessing online game cards.
