That’s the direction taken by HP with this 14s-dq0000ns.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. Easy to handle, and cleverly thought out during its development.
This model is a mid-range model with a screen size of 14 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. Even if it is not equipped with a touch screen, this model is still easy to use. It’s a shame because, when you get this 14s-dq0000ns on your lap, you’ll see that it’s not so easy to move the cursor with the touchpad.
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 manufacturer offers a processor Intel Celeron N4000; A mid-range orientation. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. With 8 Gb of RAM, it 14s-dq0000nsis a good product. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.

14s-dq0000ns the right choice for watching movies ?
The 14s-dq0000ns will now allow you to go beyond the exclusive use for work and will also serve as a tool for digital entertainment. 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. The sound reproduction level and the display quality of this top-of-the-range model won’t be lacking.
The computer proposed by HPis of average size. This diagonal of 14 inches and a resolution of 1366×768, is a good compromise. And in film display mode, you’ll have excellent visual quality with bright, realistic images. In conclusion, it is a well-balanced product that allows the films to be viewed correctly; and with a contained weight of 1.5 kg, it is easily transportable.
Offered with a glossy slab finish, this 14s-dq0000ns product is particularly suitable for multimedia-oriented use. Enhanced contrast, sharpness and color brightness are the main benefits you will get from this 14s-dq0000ns. On the other hand, because of this, the screen requires the viewer to take a break every 2 hours or so.
For the sound part, the 14s-dq0000ns is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Celeron N4000, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD Graphics 620, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 3 ports.It’s better than the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. 6 hours of battery life is enough for the vast majority of the videos you’ll see.

However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
It 14s-dq0000ns weights 1.5 Kg which makes it a computer in the average of its category. You can transport it easily, without too much effort. On the other hand, the large size will be an advantage to see photos during the holidays. One of the causes of its weight is related to the size of his 14 inches screen.
If you prefer the touch screen mode, you will be disappointed by this 14s-dq0000ns. 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. Not really necessary.
Equipped with a glossy slab, it provides very good visual comfort. The rendering on screen is good. On the other hand, this last characteristic will be less interesting for outdoor use because of the sun reflections that will occur.
This model does not have a matt or anti-reflective tile. It would have allowed a better use of this model outdoors.
With the installation of the processor Intel Celeron N4000, the power consumption is rather important.
Note that like all manufacturers, HP is optimistic about the autonomy of this 14s-dq0000ns. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 6 hours before the breakdown.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 256 Gb. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.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.
With this model, HP definitely designed a computer easily transportable, but not too small. The 14s-dq0000ns is right in the middle compared to the competition with 14 inches and an acceptable weight.
The connector part is very interesting, with 3 inputs available. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.

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 10S system.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel Celeron N4000 does best. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 256 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
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 14s-dq0000ns allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 256 Gb. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. Indicated for an autonomy of 6 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 duration which is on the other hand equivalent to the other machines at the moment.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it 14s-dq0000ns receives the USB3 connection. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.

Provided with a resolution of 1366×768, this model is unfortunately much less equipped than its competitors. This results in lower image quality when you are in game mode.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
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.
With its 256 Gb of space, this 14s-dq0000ns is on a level playing field with its competitors. Useful for local games; as there are still many of them, even though online games are progressing.

For bright areas, they are clearly cut out, the colours are intense, with a high degree of brightness and image sharpness.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
As far as storage goes, this computer’s in the average. About 256 Gb, more than enough for office use.
