Having a laptop has become a necessity today. You cannot rely solely on a desktop computer because you have to be able to access your files wherever you go, whether you are a student or an active person. And once we have made the choice of the brand (because we all have a particular preference), it remains to make a comparison between the different models it offers.
A good comparison between laptops is based on three essential criteria: power, image quality and battery life.
In terms of the power of a computer, it is based on several features including the processor of the computer that allows it to handle more or less operations, but also on the computer RAM that will allow you to launch powerful programs that you will need to work, or to play on them. One could also take into account the size of the hard disk which the choice will be according to your needs.
The quality of the image and video, which is important to watch movies on your computer or play on them, or even to have a good display simply, will depend on the graphics card of a computer as well as of its screen: size and resolution of the latter.
As for the battery life, it is very important because it is a computer that we will lug around wherever we go, and we will need to use even in the absence of an electrical outlet nearby. You probably will not need a 10-hour battery life, but a laptop that would not even last two hours is not ideal.
One could also take into account the weight of the computer that should not be excessively heavy and its price that will be determined by your maximum budget.
HP X2 10-p008nf
Here, we are on a detachable laptop model, that is to say that you can outright detach the screen and use it as a tablet with its touch screen (not for very long because it does not have a great own autonomy).
In terms of the power of the computer, you have an Intel® Atom ™ processor x5-Z8350 (1.44 GHz frequency, up to 1.92 GHz, 2 MB cache, QuadCore) and a standard RAM of 4 GB. It also has 64GB internal memory. For connectivity, you have the right to an HDMI port, two USB ports (2.0 port and 3.0 port) and an SD card reader.
For the graphics side, you are entitled to an Intel HD 400 graphics card and a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Autonomy for its part, is 6:30 (tested during a viewing of a series on Netflix, screen 200 cd / m², headphones connected).
HP Stream 14-ax005nf
Here too, we are on a very powerful laptop for normal use (by normal use, we mean it is not particularly designed for gamers) with its Intel® Celeron D ™ dual-core processor and whose frequency is 1.6 GHz.
Its RAM is 4 GB (2 GB for other variants of the same model) and its hard drive is 32 GB. For connectivity, this computer has 3 USB ports (1 USB 2.0 port and 2 USB 3.0 ports) , an SD card reader, an HDMI port and a jack.
It is equipped with a fairly large 14-inch HD display with a maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels with an Intel HD 400 graphics card.
The advantage of this laptop lies in its weight of 1400 grams, which makes it easy to transport and battery which autonomy is 11 hours to allow you to work on all day, even outdoors.
Here, we are on a model of HP widescreen laptops that is 17.3 inches (which is particularly great for a laptop, unlike desktop computers). This is an HD display that allows you a maximum resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels, with an Intel HD graphics card, which gives you excellent image quality.
Performance issue, this computer is not left with its Intel® Pentium ™ QuadCore processor with a frequency of 1.6 GHz. It is also equipped with a RAM of 8 GB and a hard disk of 1 TB (even if less powerful variants of this model exist for less expensive). It also has a battery life of 8 hours. (which, without being exceptional, remains average for laptops)
Finally, for connectivity, you are always entitled to an HDMI port, 3 USB ports, an SD card reader, a jack and an Ethernet port.
