Fine silver ultrabook with 15-inch Full HD anti-glare screen, the HP 15-dw1023nf performs well in everyday use thanks to its Quad Core i5 Comet Lake processor, its good amount of RAM but also its fast 512 GB SSD which enhances its responsiveness . It also benefits from a USB 3.1 Type-C connection, but its weight is higher than average.

Chassis, connections, screen of the HP 15-dw1023nf
With its natural silver frame, painted cover and base, molded finish keyboard frame with vertical brushed pattern (dixit HP), this slim Ultrabook adopts a sober and elegant design. It can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
This laptop computer also has good connectivity with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports as well as its 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with both USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB peripherals into it 3.0.
Lovers of High Definition content and especially videos will appreciate that the screen adopts a precise Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the HP 15-dw1023nf
The HP 15-dw1023nf is a slim 15-inch High Definition compact laptop designed for everyday use.
It indeed delivers good overall performance because it is built around 8 GB of RAM which is very useful in multitasking and a low-consumption Comet Lake Quad Core i5-10210U processor.
This houses the Intel UHD 620 graphics part within it. Modest, it still allows you to watch photos and videos. On the other hand, it is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming.
Thanks to its SSD storage, this Ultrabook is much more fluid and responsive on a daily basis than if it had a simple hard drive.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also silent, less energy-consuming and more resistant to shocks. It offers as a bonus a capacity of 512 GB in phase with the standard hard disks.
However of course if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
In any case, thanks to the SSD, this Ultrabook starts and stops faster than if it were based on a hard disk, and launches applications faster for example.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose finesse certainly facilitates transport but whose weight is above average, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
