Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion 15-eh3016nf
The HP Pavilion 15-eh3016nf is aimed at those who are looking for a thin and light 15-inch laptop with an original design, equipped with a recent processor and intended for a common versatile use.
It integrates an AMD Ryzen 7000 processor and more precisely a Barcelo Refresh low consumption Octo Core Ryzen 7 7730U in which a Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution is integrated.
The Octo Core Ryzen 7 7730U is coupled here with 16GB of RAM to provide good overall performance able to satisfy many users.
Including those who want to perform multi-core and RAM-intensive multimedia processing, such as video conversion or photo editing.
Including those who are content with viewing photos and videos or even playing light games.
However, if you want to do a lot of work that requires a lot of processor and/or graphics resources, you should choose a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
The storage is entrusted to an SSD which brings a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life than a simple hard disk.
In addition to being more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and silent, it is much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, you get much faster processing, as well as faster start/stop and launch of software, or even faster arrival on the maps of online games.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with the standard of hard disks.
If you need more space, however, you can use an external storage unit. A USB-C/USB 3.0 device is a simple option for fast transfers.
As easy to carry as an Ultrabook due to its slimness and contained weight, this versatile laptop with its original blue design should be able to last about 7 hours on battery power with light use (estimate pending more comprehensive tests).

The HP Pavilion 15-eh3004nf versus the competition

Chassis, connectivity, screen of the HP Pavilion 15-eh3004nf
This laptop, which can be recharged up to 50% in 30 minutes, has a sandblasted blue aluminum finish that gives it an original and elegant appearance.
It is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, audio port, HDMI video output useful to easily connect to a monitor or a TV for example, its Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6 ax modules to communicate and connect remotely wireless but also its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
As a biometric reader is integrated, you can authenticate by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, of course, which is useful for better visibility of the keys in low-light environments.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It’s a shame, however, that at this price level, the colorimetry is standard, inferior to that of high-end IPS panels. In any case, video lovers and more broadly high-definition content will be delighted that the screen has a 16:9 format associated with a Full HD definition. Treated anti-reflection, the screen also offers a better visibility in bright environments (eg: outdoor) than a glossy slab.
