By putting on the market the Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent -, HP offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
The screen is quite large, with 15 inches. Not necessarily easy to carry around. The processor chosen for this model is a Ryzen 5 3500U. 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. Having 8 Gb of RAM, Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – is a laptop in the average. It’s up to you to add more on the additional pitches provided if your needs arise.
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. Even if you think 1100 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. Here, HP provides with this Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – a laptop that will allow you to watch all your films locally for a long time.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 5 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket.

Making this Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of HP. 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.
For this model, HP thought big. It is one of the largest, with a screen size of only a few 15 inches, and it has a good resolution of 1920×1080. Multimedia oriented, you will enjoy watching your films. The color contrast is sharp, and the image is bright, no matter from what angle you look at it.
One of the disadvantages of this size, however, is the overall weight: 1.9 kg that will have to be transported.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
On the sound side, it Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – has good components: board and integrated speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
This Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent -, equipped with a processor Ryzen 5 3500U, corresponds to a price/power ratio in the average, sufficient for a dedicated multimedia use. Although it is in the middle of the range, this processor will be able to evolve according to your future needs, and in the immediate future will allow a good compatibility with all your peripherals. So your multimedia sessions will be fluid.
As far as applications are concerned, did HP not install any. The operating system and that’s it. 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 AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
HP didn’t prioritize connectivity on this laptop. The Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – only ports only provides you with ports. Not enough to connect everything; you’ll have to choose.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. 5 hours of battery life is enough for the vast majority of the videos you’ll see.
The Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent — the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model HP. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – is in the average, neither too light nor too heavy: 1.9 Kg. It is easy to carry even if you prefer the ultra slim models of the competition. 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.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. 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.
A processor Ryzen 5 3500Uthat allows this computer to be equivalent to other laptops in terms of power and power consumption.
However,you’ll have to decrease the manufacturer’s data concerning the autonomy figures given for this Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent -. This is an estimate for average current use; you can consider that the actual range will be around 75%.
An autonomy of 5 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
Because use is likely to consist of travel and traveling, this laptop was thin and relatively light with 2 hard drives, one SSD, the other normal, for an overall size of 1100 Gb. This double disk technology allows to record the operating system on the principle of the usb key, and to store personal data on a standard disk but more resistant in time. This reduces the noise caused by the movement of the read/write heads of the standard disk and preserves the storage capacity. If you still run out of space, all you need to do is buy an external drive.
When it comes to traveling, you’ll probably think twice before you take that computer with you. And the only times you’ll have to carry it will be between the bus or train and your hotel room. The main reason is its 15 inches, which makes it one of the largest in its class; every move, with its weight, may be difficult.
The connector part is less well supplied, with only possibilities. Currently on all available models, it is the laptop that has the poorest equipment.
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 Pavilion 15-cw1026nf Argent – for travel use.
