Stylish with its light silver design, the cheap thin and light HP 17-cn0526nf laptop with 17-inch anti-glare display performs well in everyday use thanks to its 8GB of RAM and Intel Quad Core i3 Tiger Lake processor with Intel UHD G4 graphics solution capable of running light games. This Windows 11 Ultrabook laptop also benefits from a fast 512GB SSD storage that boosts its responsiveness as well as USB-C connectivity.
Performance, autonomy of the HP 17-cn0526nf
The HP 17-cn0526nf is a large, relatively thin and light laptop for everyday use.
It benefits from an SSD storage that rivals the standard hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy consuming, more robust and much faster.
As a result, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, starting/stopping, processing and launching applications are much faster, for example, and you can get to the online game maps faster.
Of course, no dedicated graphics card is on board, but thanks to the Intel UHD G4 graphics module directly housed in the processor, you can watch photos and videos as well as play light games.
The Intel UHD G4 is more precisely integrated in the Quad Core i3-1125G4, an Intel low-power Tiger Lake processor that is coupled with 8 GB of RAM to deliver good performance in everyday use, such as office work and surfing the Internet.
And if the 512GB SSD proves to be too little? Then you can rely on an external storage device such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to get fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose transport is facilitated by the contained weight and the thinness, bet on approximately 7 hours on battery in light use. By nature, a 17-inch model is not the most easily transportable of all. But it is comfortable for a mostly sedentary use (e.g. at home).

The screen adopts classic specifications for a 17-inch at this price level with its definition of 1600×900 and its 16/9 format. However, it stands out thanks to its anti-reflection treatment, which makes it less tiring for the eyes over a long period of time than a glossy panel and more readable in bright environments (e.g. outdoors). In addition, it displays colors more faithful than average without offering the colorimetric fidelity of high-end IPS slab.
