The HP 15s-fq5014nf against the competition
The HP 15s-fq5014nf is currently shown in sales at HP France and is positioned as one of the few in its category to offer such a recent processor (Alder Lake) by coming with Windows 11.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 15s-fq5014nf
With its thin and light natural silver design, this versatile laptop has a sober and elegant appearance.
This Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its audio port, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV, for example its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules for connections and remote communication or its 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
The screen has a 16:9 format which makes it very suitable for videos and more generally for High Definition content as it is adorned with a Full HD definition as a bonus. Because it is anti-glare, the screen is also easier to read in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 15s-fq5014nf
The HP 15s-fq5014nf is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for general mobile use.
It benefits from a processor with 10 hybrid cores that are mainly used under software that takes advantage of multicores (eg video conversion, photo editing), the Intel Alder Lake low-consuming Core i5-1235U. This is coupled with a good amount of 8 GB of RAM to provide good overall performance that can satisfy a number of users.
In addition, the Core i5 with 10 cores Alder Lake-U integrates the Iris Xe graphics solution, enough to view photos and videos but also to play modest titles when there is no dedicated graphics card on board.

Storage here is entrusted to a silent SSD but also less energy-intensive than a hard disk, more robust and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, the start/stops are much faster, as well as the processing and launch of applications, and we get to the map of online games faster.
More generally, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
And if the 512GB offered by the SSD – equivalent to what hard drives offer as standard – are too small, you can use an external storage unit to get a bigger capacity. Opting for a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for autonomy, count on about 7 hours of battery life in light use for this Ultrabook, whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate transport.
