Cheap compact laptop thin and light, the HP 14s-dq5001sf is suitable for everyday use and modest gaming thanks to its 8GB of RAM and Intel Core i3-1215U hybrid Alder Lake processor with Iris Xe graphics module. Featuring a fast 256GB SSD storage that boosts its responsiveness, this 14-inch Ultrabook with a sleek silver design that runs Windows 11 benefits from USB-C connectivity.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 14s-dq5001sf
The HP 14s-dq5001sf is a compact, responsive notebook for everyday multipurpose use.
It is based on an Intel Alder Lake Core i3-1215U low-power hybrid processor that unfolds its full potential under multicore software, as well as 8 GB of RAM.
This core delivers good performance in everyday use, such as office work and Internet surfing. It also allows you to watch photos and videos, but also to play modest games thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics module that the Core i3 Alder Lake-U integrates into it.
The storage supports this core on a daily basis since it is entrusted to an SSD that clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity compared to a simple hard drive.
It must be said that an SSD, in addition to being silent, less energy consuming and more robust, is much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, we obtain for example start/stop, treatments and launches of applications much faster, or a faster arrival on the cards of the online games.
More precisely, we find here an SSD of 256 GB, a capacity that can accommodate light files/software and/or few, which is half of the standard hard disk.
However, if you need more space, you can always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0/USB-C device is then an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by its lightness, compactness and slimness, count on approximately 6 hours on battery in light use.
