HP 17-by3074nf Specs, Price, And Reviews

HP 17-by3074nf Specs, Price, And Reviews. Designed for day-to-day use, the new HP 17-by3074nf laptop PC with a sober black design is based on an Ice Lake Core i3 processor, a good amount of RAM and a fast 512 GB SSD storage which enhances its responsiveness. Equipped with a 17-inch anti-glare screen, it is relatively light but skips the USB 3.1 Type-C.

Chassis, connectors, HP 17-by3074nf screen

It sports a relatively understated design with its Ebony Black mesh pattern textured finish frame. It can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes.

The connectivity integrated into this PC is good, featuring a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor, for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to them.

No USB 3.1 Type-C port, however, nor keyboard backlight system or optical drive for this PC, contrary to what the illustration images show (which are valid for the highest options– hence the fact that we see an optional optical unit on the right).

The screen lends itself well to viewing videos with its 16: 9 format, a classic characteristic as well as its definition of 1600 × 900. Because of its anti-reflective coating, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel and less tiring for the eyes over a long period.

Performance, battery life of the HP 17-by3074nf

The HP 17-by3074nf is a large format laptop designed for daily use.

It sticks out for its SSD storage. With its 512 GB, the SSD rivals hard drives in relations to capacity while being quiet, more energy efficient, more robust and quiet.

Result due to the SSD, we capitalize on starts/ stops and launches of applications much faster than with a simple hard drive. More generally, the SSD guarantees better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive.

Of course, if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.

The SSD goes well with the heart of this computer which delivers good performance in day-to-day use, such as Internet surfing and office automation. It features a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful for multitasking and a low-power Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 Turbo processor.

The Core i3 reveals its limits under software requiring processor resources. Like other Core i3 Turbo, it is significantly more efficient than a non-Turbo Core i3 (Core i3-7xxxU and predecessors).

Without a dedicated graphics card, this computer is not suitable for heavy graphics work like gaming. It allows you to watch photos and videos, thanks to the modest Intel UHD 620 part housed in the Core i3.

When it comes to autonomy, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this PC whose weight is contained for a 17 inches, especially comfortable format for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
