Comment

Model: The HP Pavilion 14-bf001nd has a number of unique features for a laptop. This 14-inch laptop features a Core i3 processor, a Full-HD-IPS screen and a 256 GB SSD, and the laptop supports facial recognition. Hence, users can quickly log in to Windows and other services which can use Windows Hello. The brand new Pavilion laptop has a modern, sleek design and offers the perfect balance between performance and style. As for design, the housing looks sleek and appears to be entirely of metal at first glance. If user look at the laptop up close, it is not entirely correct, because the back of the screen and the bottom are plastic. The area around the keyboard and the touchpad are made of metal and do not feel weak. The weight is not particularly low at 1,549 grams, but the Pavilion 14 is not intended as a lightweight laptop. The keyboard has a keyboard light with two positions: on or off. In steps dimming is unfortunately not included, but it is already special that a laptop of six hundred euros comes with lighted keys. That keyboard taps better than that the average ultrabook, which is probably because this laptop is thicker and there is therefore more room for keystroke.

As for hardware specification, this laptop has a Core i3-7100U processor, 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB M.2 SSD. The i3 processor in the Pavilion 14 is not the fastest, but for a basic laptop, which will mainly be used for simpler work, it will suffice. The Samsung PM871a is a regular SATA-SSD with m.2 connection. It achieves an excellent performance. The Pavilion 14 has a Full-HD screen with IPS technology. Thanks to its narrow edge, the 14-inch screen (35.6 cm) fits into a 13.3-inch housing (33.8 cm). This means that the laptop also takes up little space on the road. The contrast of the display is fine, but the maximum brightness is low. Thanks to the excellent contrast, the screen is easy to use in low light conditions, but is not particularly suitable in situations with a lot of light. Thanks to two HP speakers, HP Audio Boost, and tuning by the experts at B & O PLAY, the laptop produces a rich, authentic sound. Finally, the laptop features a 42 Wh battery, which is not over-sized for a 14-inch laptop. The battery life is not bad compared to basic laptops. Ultrabooks have a limited number of ports because of their small size, but with a slightly thicker laptop, such as this Pavilion 14, the most important connections are included. On the left, there are two USB 3.0 ports and a full-size SD card reader. On the right, there are an HDMI port and a Gigabit ethernet port.
