This laptop will facilitate multitasking, and you will be able to simultaneously run applications such as Photoshop, Magix Video or Vegas pro with an operating Windows 10 system.
This model, HPoffers an effective product without being too expensive.Equipped with a software suite as standard, you can start editing for movies and music. In case you want to upgrade to professional applications, the processor Ryzen 7 4700U and disk size of 500 Gb will be more than sufficient.
Even if this corresponds to quality components, HP made the choice to put only one SSD. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. Here with 500 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. Indicated for an autonomy of 5 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. However, it’s still a decent average range.
On the connection side, the 15s-eq1011nf Argenti s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.

The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
Since HP has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.

On the practical transport side, this model is one of the lightest on the market, with 1.7 Kg.
