Design & Build
With this laptop, HP decided to go with the minimalistic approach. Nothing here that really breaks the norm and draws attention.
You get a brushed aluminum body finish and a great keyboard to go with. The travel of the keyboard is also perfect for typing and playing games.
Though the screen is large, at 25mm thick, the HP 17 feels smaller and lighter than some of the laptops with the same screen real estate.
Now, it only weighs a meagre, 2.7 Kgs. I would say this is just perfect since there are laptops of 15.6 inches that way more than that with almost 300grams.
Another great thing about it, is that you will also get a numeric keypad. This is quite appropriate for those who use the PC for doing calculations or have assigned shortcuts to the numeric part.
The screen is massive at 17.3 inches. I usually prefer laptops around the 15.6 inch mark but that won’t make any difference to you now since it weighs less than some of those other laptops.
Talking about the resolution, it is 1600 by 900 pixels. Though this might not be that great when compared to premium displays, at the price point, you get value for your money.
However, the 1080p is display is appropriate for watching movies, playing games and even browsing the internet.
HP 17 Performance
In this sector, there are various options available. You can either go with AMD A Series or the intel processors.
If you choose the AMD APU, you also get an integrated AMD Radeon R4 or R5 GPU. This is great for general gaming and running graphics intensive games.
Going the Intel way, if you decide to buy the Intel Core CPU variants, you also have the option for an AMD Radeon dedicated GPU. Also, the processors are either last year’s 6thh generation or the current generation.
When it comes to multitasking, there is the 8GB of RAM. Therefore, you won’t have slow program switching and launching. To add to that, you can also run many programs at the same time and don’t feel bogged down by unresponsiveness.
The good thing about RAM is that you can increase a few more numbers if you are not satisfied with what you are getting. With that, the maximum supported is 16GB DDR4.
HP 17 in Kenya runs Windows 10 Operating system, with this, you have the latest in terms of security and improvements in user interface. Also, the operating system updates itself automatically so you don’t have to worry about updates*.
Now, the normal standard ports are available for this laptop. These include a HDMI Port, 1 USB 3.0, two 2.0 ports, a card reader and a card reader.
Coming to the storage options, there is also variety here. Firss the minimum amount of internal storage you can get is 500 GB while the maximum is 2TB. There is even an option for an SSD. So if you have the resources, you should definitely buy SSD.
