This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
15-dw2008nl adapted to surf the internet?
Because a computer is above all a tool for leisure and educational use (browsing e-commerce or information sites, writing e-mails, etc.), you need to make sure that it will stand the test of time and that it is of high quality.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
That’s the direction taken by HP with this 15-dw2008nl.A product positioned as mid-range but of good quality. Material that seem to be well-designed.

A component providing impressive power and responsiveness. In addition, with this model, you have at your disposal a tool that will make your internet navigation fluid. The amount of RAM provided is 12 Gb. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. By offering only 128 Gb, this 15-dw2008nl is one of the smallest in its category. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 5 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. Not as good as what you can get on competing products, and that’s a pity, because in the end the laptop is pleasant to use.

On the sound side, it 15-dw2008nl has good components: board and integrated 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. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
With a processor type Intel Core i7-1065G7, HP offers a high performance solution. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. This means that several billion calculations can be carried out simultaneously.
