2020 HP 17-by3063st 17.3″ HD+ Display Laptop
Late 2020 model new release silver HP 17-by3063st is a modern laptop with a very large 17.3-inch HD+ non-touch screen, Intel i3-1005G1 processor, 128GB SSD & 1TB HDD hard drive, 8GB RAM, Windows 10 Home operating system and a variety of connectivity ports. It first became available on November 1, 2020 and is rated an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars by 36 customers at the moment.
The quarter two of 2019 release dual core Intel i3-1005G1 processor (4MB cache, 4 threads with hyperthreading) runs at a base speed of 1.2GHz for regular tasks, that goes up to 3.4GHz with the turbo boost frequency as needed by the more demanding tasks. The average CPU Passmark benchmark score is 5240 at the moment for a mid-range performance to handle your daily and more demanding tasks other than advanced gaming or complex multimedia editing. 8GB DDR4 high bandwidth memory is a good amount at this mid-range price level and you can have a few browser tabs and apps running at the same time and multitask efficiently between different applications.
For storage you have both the 128GB Solid State Drive with many times higher speed and the regular 1TB SATA hard drive for all the local storage space you want. You can open your files very quickly, start from zero or Sleep mode very quickly. The typical TDP- Thermal Design Power on the new tenth generation i3-1005G1 is 15 watts and you can expect up to 9 hours of battery life from its 41Wh lithium ion battery at the low light settings. And this will probably be less in practice depending on what you’re doing on the computer. So you can stay connected and productive for a good part of the day without needing to be near a power outlet. It is an Energy Star certified and EPEAT Silver registered laptop that is environmentally conscious.
It is nice to have a large 17.3-inch diagonal HD+ display with a 1600 x 900 pixel resolution and you can watch videos, play games and view and edit photos comfortable with a decent picture quality offered by the 1.4 million pixels and you can stream and multitask easily on its large display. It has the 76% screen to body ratio, which is not bad for screen space. The built-in Intel UHD graphics card helps with the smooth content streaming and game playing. There is a good quality HD webcam on the top bezel for your live chats on Skype or taking photos. Please note that the sleek brushed keyboard is not backlit and the screen does not have the touch functionality on this HP Laptop.
There is a separate numeric keypad on the side for you to do your number crunching easily.

Please note that the 1TB HDD drive will not appear under the control panel as the C drive, but D drive in the bios. It offers a reliable and responsive performance overall with the tenth generation processor, SSD storage and 8GB memory. It looks and feels good, does the job well and we’re happy to recommend it if you’re on the market for a large 17.3-inch display laptop with decent performance levels.
