AMD Ryzen processors have a way with contemporary audiences—they are not only multitasking-friendly and designed with a futuristic orientation, but they are also incredibly cost-effective. The newest HP 15-db0040nr brings alive the full splendor of the AMD Ryzen 5 2500U processor (four cores). It can be boosted up to 3.6GHz and, paired with 8GB RAM, 1TB of storage space, and Windows 10 Home, realizes a long-lasting battery life of 7.5 hours. This new offering from the HP family is priced at $527.30, making it an affordable and flexible buy for students, mobile professionals, families, and the like.
The modern-day AMD Ryzen processor is, hands down, the standout feature of this machine. No wonder that, since it provides smooth and efficient performance for most day-to-day computing needs. The storage space on offer (1TB) is ample for a large collection of media, documents, etc. While the battery can easily last up to 7.5 hours on mixed usage, it doesn’t leave you stranded even when you are continually playing videos (6.25 hours) or streaming content over a wireless network (5.75 hours). Since the battery supports HP Fast Charge, it powers up quickly when things start to get drained. On the flip side, the memory on this machine is not upgradable.
Portability is a big commitment for this laptop, and it invests heavily in being convenient to use on the move. It weighs only 4.6lbs and has a thickness of 0.89”—a configuration that’s lightweight and hassle-free, letting you lug around the machine wherever you go. It looks good too, with a stylish, brushed keyboard (not backlit). It also has a hinge to let you type more comfortably, and the color of this hinge is set to match the overall body.
On the display front, this machine provides a High Definition touchscreen that supports HP TrueVision. This display technology helps keep the colors accurate and life-like and the brightness pleasing to the eyes. It offers a screen resolution of 1366 x 768. While this is less than optimal (or FHD), it is quite charming to enjoy A/V content or look through photos.
The computer is equipped with one USB 2.0 port, an SD card reader, a webcam for video calling, and a DVD writer. It also supports 802.11.b/g/n Wi-Fi to allow you to connect to a wireless network and Bluetooth 4.2 to transfer data across devices. Note that it lacks USB 3.0 or 3.1 ports, so support for devices/peripherals can get limited.
