This Jet Black colored HP laptop does not only look premium but also is loaded with tons of features at an affordable rate. It is thin, yet very durable. Let’s talk about its features, pros, and cons to know if it is worth buying or not.
Storage and memory
It is equipped with a powerful and blazingly fast 256GB SSD, which is more efficient than standard hard drives. The 4GB DDR4 RAM will help you multitask instantly in a lag-free manner.
The laptop has different ports that you will need regularly. It comes with 1 HDMI port, 2 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, one audio-output port, and 1 Ethernet LAN port.
This comes with a true HD webcam that enables you to do video calls, skype, etc. The touchpad, along with the two mouse buttons are very smooth. They are responsive, sensitive touch, and the mouse buttons are durable as well. Unfortunately, this model does not come with the Microsoft office pre-installed.
What Do We like
The laptop features a 14 inch HD 720p (1366×768) display that ensures crisp images and sharper videos. The refresh rate of this display is 60Hz. The vibrant colors of this screen, along with the brightness, makes everything look prettier. The anti-glare feature minimizes the strain on your eyes caused by the blue lights of the screen.
Battery back up
This laptop comes with 41-watt hours of 3 cell lithium-ion battery that is quite powerful. It will provide you with up to 7 hours of battery back up on normal usage for work purposes. This can also provide you with up to 3-4 hours of back up for video playback (depending on the screen brightness level).
Also, it supports a quick charging facility that enables this device to charge up to 50% within only 45 minutes. One full charge would take around 1.30 hours that lasts for a long time.
Carrying this laptop with you is almost like carrying nothing. This is a very lightweight laptop specially made for traveling purposes. It weighs around 1.47 kilograms. You can slide it into a bag, and travel anywhere you like for work or entertainment purposes.
There are two speakers of 3 watts each is built-in the laptop. The loudness of these speakers is decent, and clarity is excellent. You may want to opt for an external speaker for better performance, but without them, these speakers are enough for you to watch movies or listen to songs on them. The audio quality won’t disappoint you.
The Intel Pentium 4413U processor of 2.3GHz dual-core with 2MB cache memory will let you work peacefully. The 4GB DDR4 RAM, combined with it, will be able to execute every task smoothly and within a specific time. Intel HD Graphics 620 will let you watch videos or movies smoothly.
