The HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf is currently displayed in promotion at E.Leclerc and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category where competition is very limited.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf
This versatile laptop PC with an aluminum Blue Mist design is thin and light with an elegant and discreet appearance.
This laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV, for example, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for connections and communication, the audio port and the 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
The chiclet keyboard is decorated with a practical backlight solution for the keys to better distinguish them in the case of limited ambient light.
The screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to the IPS technology which is not high-end, however, as the colorimetry here is average. In any case, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its accurate Full HD definition and its 16:9 format. Because it is anti-glare, the screen is also easier to read in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf
The HP Pavilion 15-eh1029nf is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop computer designed for versatile everyday mobile use.
It features a silent SSD storage, but it also consumes less energy than a hard drive, is more resistant to shocks and much faster. Consequently, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a day-to-day basis than a simple hard drive, implying notably much faster start-ups/stops, processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards of games in line.
Despite the lack of a dedicated graphics card, you can view photos and videos as well as play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics part integrated into the processor.
The Radeon Vega 7 is integrated directly into the AMD Cezanne low-power APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U processor, a Hexa Core coupled here with a good amount of above-average 16GB of RAM.
The overall performance of this core may satisfy some users.
And especially those who want to occasionally perform modest multimedia work with multicore and RAM, such as photo editing or video conversion.

Of course, in the event that the 512 GB of the SSD is insufficient, the capacity corresponds to what standard hard drives offer, we can turn to an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile laptop, whose thinness and limited weight make it easier to transport, bet on about 7 hours of battery life with light use.
