HP 350 G2 Laptop Review, Specifications & Price in Nigeria
The standard HP 350 G2 is a reasonably priced laptop for business users and a successor to the HP 350 G1. Now, coming with options of 4th or 5th generation processors, this laptop is made to deliver solid performance using the usual connectivity and security features that most business machines from HP usually have.
The multi-core processor in this laptop is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Although, not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology.
Like the 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture.
Some processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. So, Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Yeah ofcourse intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
Design & Display
HP 350 G2 features a durable design that helps ensure solid protection when carrying the laptop around for work. It is built to be reliable for mobile use and comes with a spill-resistant, island-style keyboard.
At a thickness of around 23mm, the notebook is not the slimmest business laptop to be known and it is not the thickest either. It is also neither here nor there in terms of weight, starting at 2.3 kg.
HP 350 G2 packs a matte screen with LED backlight and measures 15.6 inches diagonally. The display has an HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.
Performance & Other Features
Equipped with 4th and 5th generation processors, the HP 350 G2 should be able to deliver decent performance.
Options include Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5 and Intel Pentium processors, delivering speeds of up to 2.2GHz (up to 2.7GHz with Turbo Boost) depending on chip configuration.
Standard memory on the laptop is 8GB DDR3, upgradeable up to 16GB. Integrated Intel HD Graphics and an optional AMD Radeon discrete graphics card with up to 2GB of video RAM ensures impressive visual experience.
You have to know that Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. Like if you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed.
Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be available due to system resource requirements.
