HP i7 Notebook

This i7 processor Windows 11 touch PC from HP is available only from Curry's so I decided that I should check it out. If offers a lot in a quite small overall package and is '2 in 1' as its not only a notebook but also a tablet.

It is 31.5x21cm, its 1.5cm thick at the back and only 1cm thick at the front and it weighs 1512grams.

Going around the outside has HDMI out, USB 'C' and audio out on the left, the front is clear, the right side has micro SD card connection, two USB and finally a 3.5mm charge point, you can of course also use a USB 'C' lead to charge as well. There is nothing on the back as the screen goes back 360 degrees as this can also be used as a Tablet.

It has an 84 key keyboard, there is 1.5cm clear on each side, 2cm clear behind and 8.5cm clear in front. The 11.5x7cm trackpad is mounted centrally. The base has a long 25x3cm area towards the rear which is the B&O sound output. For a notebook with sound from the bass its good, as a Tablet when the back is fully back its OK, far better when in a 'V' shape. A 27.5cm rubber bar is front and back to stop the notebook rubbing on any surface it is laid on.

The viewable screen is 31x17.5cm with less than .5cm borders left and right and 1cm borders top and bottom, there is a web can in the centre of the top border. Now onto what

is inside the unit it has an i7 processor 13 Generation running at 1.7GHz, the screen is 1920x1080 and as it can be a Tablet it is capable of being Landscape or Portrait, the default screen display is 150%. It has Windows 11 and when I reviewed it the updates were V23H2.

The SSD drive on my unit was 512GB which means 476GB and you should have around 420GB free. You have 16GB RAM with 15.7GB available.

In my tests it handled everything I asked it to do without delay and if I had the money it would become something I would own myself. At the time of publication this product is available on sale from Currys priced at £879.
