This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
15-dw1024nf Argent adapted to surf the internet?
Your needs are almost exclusively internet browsing and some word processing documents, but you don’t want any quality defects in this laptop.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
It is in this spirit that HP has developed this 15-dw1024nf Argent.A product positioned as mid-range but of good quality. Easy to handle, and cleverly thought out during its development.
With a 15 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The processor chosen for this model is a Core i7-10510U. Indeed, the power it delivers is interesting, even if it is not the latest generation of component. A logical decision in relation to the intended use of this computer: surfing the Internet and sufficient computing power. Having 8 Gb of RAM, 15-dw1024nf Argent is a laptop in the average. It’s up to you to add more on the additional pitches provided if your needs arise.

The 15-dw1024nf Argent- the right model for streaming and videos ?
You are considering laptops for standard multimedia use (watching movies, storing photos, listening to music)! HP offers the 15-dw1024nf Argent perfect for that. Not the best, however it is one of the models existing in a tight price range.
In order to see if it will meet your needs, we have tested it for audio and video use.
The laptop from .HP is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 15 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. This model has a wide screen that will be essential for viewing your movies and streaming video. The rendering is bright and vivid, and if you take a moment to look at the screen from several angles you will see that there is no distortion of the image or inverted colors.
Note that one eliminatory criteria for some nomadic users is its weight; here this model weighs 1.9 kg, partly because of the screen size.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
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-dw1024nf Argent. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
This 15-dw1024nf Argent, equipped with a processor Core i7-10510U, 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…). So your multimedia sessions will be fluid.
On the application side, HP chose to let you do it. Only the operating system is installed. This is a Windows 10 on which you can install the software you need. Can only be VLC to manage the audio and video part.
Equipped with the Intel UHD Graphics 620 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
For connectivity, you will have 3 ports. About the average compared to the competition.Between, the speakers, the mouse, and the external hard drive you will have little possibility to add many more peripherals.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. HP promises 5 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The 15-dw1024nf Argent- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes 15-dw1024nf Argent to be easily carried around. This seems to be the issue that the HP didn’t really take into account in the design of this 15-dw1024nf Argent. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
An acceptable gap regarding the displacement of this 15-dw1024nf Argent of 1.9 Kg. It’s still an easy-to-handle computer, even if it’s not an ultrabook. On the other hand, it is also pleasant to use it to surf the internet or write e-mails. With its 15 inches, the screen will however render a large image.
No backlit keyboard on this 15-dw1024nf Argent. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
The processor Core i7-10510Uinstalled on this model makes it possible to save batteries.
The manufacturer estimates a possible range that you can reduce. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 5 hours before the breakdown.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 500 Gb SSD hard drive. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. Thanks to this, HP was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. Indeed, because of its size, 15 inches, you have there, one of the largest laptops of the moment.
This 15-dw1024nf Argent allows external elements to be associated via 3 connectors. It is in the average of what is done on competing models.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this 15-dw1024nf Argent for travel use.
The 15-dw1024nf Argent to make audio or video editing.
For this type of use, it seems necessary to turn to a high-performance product. With this 15-dw1024nf Argent, you can be sure you have the right machine. Since the last generation designed by HP, there have been many improvements on the components. 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.
Possibly for occasional use, the processor Core i7-10510U will allow you to perform certain tasks, if they are initiated individually. Having 8 Gb of RAM, the rendering speed is sufficient for image processing. All the applications you’ll need to get started are available. If on the other hand you start on pro applications, it will be necessary to add more memory.
The designers of HP have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The 15-dw1024nf Argent allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 500 Gb. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
For the autonomy part, HP proposes last generation batteries. 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. A result in the average of the competitors.
For the connector part, the 15-dw1024nf Argenthas the USB3 format. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
With the 15-dw1024nf Argent, you’re moving towards a very good product. Perfectly designed for audio video use. And for the right price/quality ratio.

The 15-dw1024nf Argent for online or local games.
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. Clearly, if your only need is to play games with this 15-dw1024nf Argent, it may be better to go to other models. Clearly, HP has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
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
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Ideal for old design games, it has difficulty restoring the images and colors of the latest online games. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
Not really designed for gaming, which leads to a display system that is a little behind the times Possibly, the display will be less degraded if you are playing old games, requiring fewer resources.
An average capacity/price ratio that makes this 15-dw1024nf Argent an interesting choice when you’re looking for a 500 Gb drive. A feature that interested those, and there are still many, who want to install and play locally.
For Wi-Fi technology, HP decided to make the use of the 5GHz wireless band possible. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
With a weight 1.9 Kg and a screen size of 15 inches, it is a tool in the average of other laptops.
Please note that with an autonomy of 5 hours, you will have enough time to play video games requiring few resources.
In the end, we do not recommend this 15-dw1024nf Argent for games; low performance will degrade the rendering and playability. But it can be a good choice for office functions.
The 15-dw1024nf Argent for office automation.
HP has chosen to respond to all users who wish to have a basic use of their 15-dw1024nf Argent. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
If you’re already a Linux or Apple user, your choice will probably head for this laptop. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 that’s running it.
It’s not 15-dw1024nf Argent equipped with all the applications you’ll need. It’s up to you to download and/or purchase the software suite that suits you. Neither too heavy nor too light. Its weight of 1.9 Kg is not too high for a mobile computer.
Due to the size of the keyboard, all the office oriented elements are present. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
This 15-dw1024nf Argent eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. The colour palette is of good quality; blacks and whites do not look like yellow and grey.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. Equipped with a hard drive of 500 Gb, it will give you the possibility to store all your documents locally.
In the end, this 15-dw1024nf Argent is a good compromise. The middle groud for recurring use in office automation mode.
In short, is the 15-dw1024nf Argent, the right choice ?
