As a preamble to this test
Is the 15-da1009ne for you?Your computer will not be limited to technical specifications, so we have built a test plan according to the use you will make of it.We’ve put this 15-da1009ne through some tests based on how you’re going to use it.
The detail of our analysis in this article.
15-da1009ne enough for internet use?
Even if your use is limited to surfing the Web, writing e-mails and sometimes using an Excel spreadsheet, the minimum computer quality is essential.This laptop will ensure that the tasks you perform will be reliable and trouble-free for years to come.The key is to achieve balance with a cheap but solid laptop.Here you have an almost perfect product.By putting on the market the 15-da1009ne, Hp offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
It’s a big screen that you have: 15.6 inches that will be less easily transported compared to an ultra book. Unlike some competitors, this model does not have a touch screen. It’s not prohibitive, but you may find it 15-da1009ne less easy to use when you’re on the go.
However, the materials seem to be of good quality. It is hoped that the other internal components of this laptop are future-proof; usually a lot of attention is Hp paid to the design of its products and the one tested should benefit from this.
The processor chosen for this model is a Intel Core i7-8565U. Hp basic idea that you’re not going to put too much strain on that laptop. Contrary to a video editing style use that requires computing power, this model is correct for surfing the internet; a use that does not require too much computing power. With 16 Gb of RAM, it 15-da1009neis a good product. It’s the certainty that the computer will work better and longer.
By offering a hard drive of this size, the company is making this model one of the laptops with the largest disk space on the market. You’ll actually have plenty of space to store files and video locally on the 2000 Gb provided. Here, Hp provides with this 15-da1009ne a laptop that will allow you to watch all your films locally for a long time.
In the end, with an autonomy of 7 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. This laptop is in the middle of the range for its autonomy. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.
15-da1009ne for videos?
High quality, the engineers of Hp have chosen to make this 15-da1009ne the top of the range for leisure uses: movies, music, photos. A blend of your TV, stereo and media players in one machine. Among all the laptops of the moment, it appeared to us as one of the best for multimedia use. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
Hp presents this model in a large size version. It is one of the largest, with a screen size of only a few 15.6 inches, and it has a good resolution of 1920×1080. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
One of the disadvantages of this size, however, is the overall weight: 3.1 kg that will have to be transported.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this 15-da1009ne. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
This 15-da1009ne, equipped with a processor Intel Core i7-8565U, corresponds to a price/power ratio in the average, sufficient for a dedicated multimedia use. With this, you are sure to have a scalable product (if needed), and that will fit perfectly with your peripherals (speakers, video projectors, etc…). You won’t have to worry about launching your audio and video applications.
With NVIDIA GeForce MX110, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 16 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
In the connectivity part, you have 3 ports available. In the norm compared to most other computers in the competition.Between, the speakers, the mouse, and the external hard drive you will have little possibility to add many more peripherals.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. Hp promises 7 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The 15-da1009ne- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
It 15-da1009ne is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. This seems to be the issue that the Hp didn’t really take into account in the design of this 15-da1009ne. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
This is one of the heaviest models compared to the competition: 3.1 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The reason for that ? The size of the screen. With its 15.6 inches, the screen will however render a large image.
Unfortunately, it is not 15-da1009ne equipped with a touch screen as standard models. You’ll have to remember to always carry a mouse with you. Or you’ll have to deal with the trackpad.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
The energy consumed by the processor Intel Core i7-8565U is in the average currently.
The manufacturer estimates a possible range that you can reduce. This is an estimate for average current use; you can consider that the actual range will be around 75%.
As for the autonomy , the batteries will allow you to use it for about 7 hours.
This laptop will therefore rather be intended to stay on the desk or to be taken away from time to time at the weekend. The moving parts that make up the hard drive can get damaged and cause the loss of the data it contains. Equipped with a standard 2000 Gb hard disk, it will make possible an almost unlimited number of writing cycles (recording/erasing). On the other hand, unlike an SSD type hard disk drive, it will be slower in terms of the time required to boot up or to leave the standby mode.
When away on business, your laptop will mostly stay at the hotel. Its size does not invite you to carry it everywhere you go. Indeed, because of its size, 15.6 inches, you have there, one of the largest laptops of the moment.
This 15-da1009ne allows external elements to be associated via 3 connectors. It’s one of the average laptops.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Finally with the 15-da1009ne, Hp deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.
The 15-da1009ne to make audio or video editing.
Considering that the assembly that you intend to carry out is of the range of leisure, this 15-da1009ne can suit you. Even for an amateur level, editing and creating music requires processor speed and sufficient RAM. Of course, it is not at the level of what is done for professionals, but it responds well anyway.
Possibly for occasional use, the processor Intel Core i7-8565U will allow you to perform certain tasks, if they are initiated individually. Having 16 Gb of RAM, the rendering speed is sufficient for image processing. This model comes with a pre-installed software suite by default. And in case you want to go further, you will be able to do so provided you add a bit of memory.
With 2000 Gb hard drive size, you have enough space.A disk size equivalent to competing products. However, it is possible that you will fill this space quickly as the films may take up space. Regarding the speed at startup, Hpmade the choice of the conventional hard drive. A choice of solidity that is certainly relevant, against a choice of speed that could have broken in 5 years.
For the autonomy part, Hp proposes last generation batteries. The available battery life is of 7 hours in standard conditions of use, which means keeping the charger close at hand because the audio-visual assembly consumes a lot of power. A result in the average of the competitors.
On the connection side, the 15-da1009nei s equipped with USB 3 technology. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
You will also be able to use it every day to browse the internet. In short, a relevant choice for a contained price.
15-da1009ne the right choice to play online?
With this model, you will be able to move quickly in any game, without parasitic elements, screen freezing or image tearing. Until recently, with rare exceptions, only desktop computers could be used. On this 15-da1009ne, Hp has implemented a cooling system perfectly dimensioned for advanced uses of online games.
The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed the visual rendering will be. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
Hp has also chosen a processor Intel Core i7-8565U which has the merit of doing many calculations in parallel, and for the graphic part, the NVIDIA GeForce MX110, for a good result. Even if the components are not to the level of the best, the processor Intel Core i7-8565U and the board NVIDIA GeForce MX110 allow to achieve a very good result in terms of image and colors.
During the tests we ran on this laptop, the components used by the brand’s engineers proved that they could hold the load.
With an average score on the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) ranking, this laptop allows you to try some games. It corresponds to a median choice, neither extremely powerful nor too expensive.
Even though online games today do not require disk space, the one installed on this model is one of the largest. The 2000 Gb of 15-da1009ne can still be used by a large number of players in the case of locally installed games.
No 5GHZ network possible in wifi on 15-da1009ne. We would have liked it to be one of the available options.
With 3.1 Kg, it is likely to remain on your desk more often than in a case to take it on a trip.
By offering 7 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
Clearly, a good quality rendering on the graphics, a size of 15.6 inches, thin and rather light (3.1 Kg), make this 15-da1009ne an excellent one for a video game use. In addition, it is good value for money compared to competitors. The right tool for maximum performance!
Is the 15-da1009ne adapted to office automation ?
Although this does not affect the majority of users, it is important to know the OS of this hardware. The OSes available on the market are all different technical ecosystems with their own applications. This15-da1009ne is in any case perfectly suited for office use.
Customary of this OS, Hp has chosen as usual. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 that’s running it.
It 15-da1009ne is not designed to be transported, but it will do the job in the case of an exclusively fixed use, and little displacement. With a weight of 3.1 Kg, you will limit as often as possible the various movements of this laptop.
Key spacing will be important for office use. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
Our tests have verified that the matt treated screen limits the effects of light. You will benefit from a more diffuse natural image, which has the advantage of causing less eye strain.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
Regarding the size of the hard disk, it has 2000 Gb.That gives you a little time before you have to find another data storage area.
In conclusion, the 15-da1009ne is an excellent choice for office use. It combines ergonomics with power, with an interesting price/quality ratio.
Finally, the 15-da1009ne….
All in all, this laptop is among the best, whatever you use it for. It performs well in almost everything, the 15-da1009ne remains reasonable in terms of price.
