The HP 14s-fq1000nf against the competition
The HP 14s-fq1000nf is currently available from: Darty and the fnac† It meets very few competitors in its category, where it is one of the few that offers 16 GB of RAM with a 1 TB SSD, but also runs on Windows 11.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP 14s-fq1000nf
With its thin and light Natural Silver design, this laptop, which can be charged to about 50% in 45 minutes, has an elegant and discreet appearance.
This versatile laptop has good connectivity with its USB-C, audio port, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for communication and remote connections, its handy HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example or its 2 USB 3.0 compliant USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
Too bad there aren’t more recent and efficient Wi-Fi hatchet and Bluetooth 5 modules and a backlight solution for the chiclet keyboard.
Because a fingerprint reader is integrated, you can authenticate through biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
Because it is anti-glare, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). With its 16:9 format and Full HD definition, it is also ideal for displaying videos and wider High Definition content. What a shame, however, that it does not use IPS technology that offers wider viewing angles, nor more faithful colorimetry than the average.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 14s-fq1000nf
The HP 14s-fq1000nf is a compact, high-definition laptop computer designed for versatile everyday mobile use.
It benefits from large-capacity 1TB SSD storage that rivals hard drives in this area, enough for multiple files and software.
In addition, an SSD offers several advantages over a hard disk: greater resistance to shocks, quiet operation, lower energy consumption or even higher speed.
As a result, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. In practice, for example, thanks to the SSD, startups/stops, processing and software launches are much faster and you can get to online game cards faster.
Although there is no dedicated graphics card on board, you can indeed view photos and videos, as well as play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated into the processor.
This is a Ryzen 7 5700U AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Lucienne Octo Core with low consumption here combined with 16 GB RAM to provide good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.
And especially those who want to perform modest multimedia work with multicore and RAM, such as video conversion or photo editing.
However, to often perform processing that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to go instead to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
As for the autonomy of this computer, whose finesse, compactness and lightness make it as easy to transport as an Ultrabook, just count on about 8 hours of battery life in light use for this versatile mobile computer that is just as easy to transport like an Ultrabook thanks to its limited weight, its compactness and its finesse.
