Unlike some competitors, this model does not have a touch screen. It’s a shame because, when you get this 15-da0045TU on your lap, you’ll see that it’s not so easy to move the cursor with the touchpad.
The materials used for the screen, keyboard and touchpad still seem to be of good quality. After all HP, has accustomed us to design quality products, just like this model, which will serve you for a long time to come.
The manufacturer has chosen to equip this model with a processor Core i5-8265U. 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. Very clearly, with only 4 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the 15-da0045TU, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
Of all the computers available at the moment, this one is the laptop with the largest hard drive. Even with 1000 Gb, you can be sure that many video and audio files are continuously stored. In case you would have to do without any internet connection, this size of space can be interesting.

15-da0045TU the right choice for watching movies ?
Making this 15-da0045TU a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of HP. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. Among all the laptops of the moment, it appeared to us as one of the best for multimedia use. In this section we will look at features such as screen size, resolution, built-in speakers.
The computer proposed by HPis of average size. With its 15 inches and resolution of 1366×768, it can be suitable for a lot of uses including watching films. The image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience. In the end, a homogeneous product that allows you to watch films and, with its 1.9 kg,it will be easy to take on the move.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
For the sound part, the 15-da0045TU is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
This 15-da0045TU, equipped with a processor Core i5-8265U, 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. This will result in fluid video and audio sessions.
Equipped with the Intel UHD Graphics 620 graphic card, and with 4 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.
On the connectivity side, 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.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. HP promises 7 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
15-da0045TU the right choice for travelling connected ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes 15-da0045TU to be easily carried around. At least that’s what we find out a priori. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.

Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 7 hours before the breakdown.
Even if the use of this laptop is dedicated to business trips and travelling, it will be more comfortable in an office mainly. The reasons are its size, and the hard drive that the brand HP decided to put in it. Equipped with a standard 1000 Gb hard disk, it will make possible an almost unlimited number of writing cycles (recording/erasing). The disadvantage is that the boot phases will be slower than on an SSD technology disk.
Even if a portable laptop stays at the hotel 80% of the time, it is relevant to have a screen that is not too big so as not to be disturbed, but big enough to enjoy the image. The 15-da0045TU is right in the middle compared to the competition with 15 inches and an acceptable weight.
With 3 connectors, this 15-da0045TU allows multiple connections. This is roughly equivalent to what the competition is offering.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
