Performance, the autonomy of the HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf

The HP Pavilion 15-eg2045nf is a High Definition notebook designed for general purpose mobile use.

It packs a low power Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1235U processor with 10 hybrid cores coupled with a good amount of 16GB of RAM to provide good overall performance that can suit many users.

Those who occasionally do modest multimedia work using multicore and RAM will appreciate services such as photo editing or video conversion provided by this core.

However, if the goal is to frequently perform work that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to choose a computer equipped with a less powerful processor and/or an adequate dedicated graphics card instead.

The point of the dedicated graphics card here is that all the graphics are supported directly by the Intel Iris Xe graphics part housed in the Alder Lake-U Core i5. Obviously, you can view photos and videos, but also have fun playing modest games.

SSD memory clearly increases its daily sensitivity and fluidity compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, start/stop, processing and software launch are especially faster and we get to the cards of online games faster.

It should be said that the SSD is faster than the hard disk, at the same time it consumes less energy, it is more robust and silent. With a capacity of 512 GB, the SSD offers capacity that meets the standard of hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage device. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device is an interesting option to take advantage of fast transfers.

As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook, made easy to carry with its lightness and slimness, bet on the battery for about 7 hours in light use.
