Reviews for the HP 15-ef2099nr

76% HP 15-ef2099nr Review
Source: Digit week English
The HP 15-ef2099nr is a well-built laptop for a great price. However, competing laptops like the Acer Aspire 5 and Asus VivoBook 15 are better. I’m often skeptical when recommending lower-cost laptops; too many have bland designs and awful keyboards, but the HP 15 laptop is solid and well-built for the price. You get snappy performance, a robust keyboard, and a touchpad that is a joy to type on and build quality that belies its price tag. And it’s remarkably portable, even for its 15-inch size. That said, HP still had to keep costs down to reach this affordable price point. Its display is dimmer and lacks color accuracy, and battery life would be better given its size. A 720p display is just painful, while competitors are offering 1080p for even less money. There are other laptops that give it a run for its money.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

R5 5500U: A hexa-core APU designed for use in ultra-thin, upper mid-range laptops. The Ryzen features six Zen 2 CPU cores running at 2.1 GHz to 4.0 GHz alongside the Vega 7 graphics adapter (448 unified shaders running at up to 1,800 MHz). One could be forgiven for thinking Ryzen 5 5500U is a renamed Ryzen 5 4500U - which is not the case. Ryzen 5 5500U is most similar to Ryzen 5 4600U, the most noteworthy difference between the two being the faster iGPU model of the former.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


76%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
