HP 17-cn0026nr Review And Specification

HP 17-cn0026nr Review And Specification

Generally speaking, laptops with larger screens tend to be heavier and more voluminous. An unusual exception is the HP 17-cn0026nr, which packs a whopping 17.3-inch inside a 4.6-pound chassis. That weight is comparable to the majority of 14- and 15-inch laptops. To put it simply, this business-oriented Windows 11 PC meets all the requirements; it delivers strong performance and a comfortable typing experience in a thin, easily transportable design.

An Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, the same as that found in the smaller 14-inch HP Pavilion x360 convertible that we found to be quite efficient at productivity tasks, powers the HP 17-cn0026nr. At this price range, the 11th-generation processor is typically paired with 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD storage, and Intel Iris Xe graphics.

In addition, the 17.3-inch screen's 1600 x 900 resolution is very low, which prevents it from ranking among the best laptops under $1000. Numerous 17-inch laptops with stunning 4K resolutions have been spotted; among them is the LG Gram 17. Although they are slightly more expensive, they look amazing and make excellent use of the large screen.

However, if you're on a tight budget and would like a 17-inch laptop that's also small enough to carry to the office or a university lecture hall, the HP 17-cn0026nr appears to be a decent option.

The HP 17-cn0026nr retains the same silver design as the HP 17-cn0026nr that we previously evaluated, but it comes with a higher capacity SSD storage and a fingerprint scanner on the keyboard deck. It has a sleek silver shell and a lid that is simple to open, giving the impression that it is an HP Envy 17. However, the game is revealed by the stylized Chrome HP logo at the top. Nevertheless, this laptop has a professional appearance and feel due to its exquisite design.

While it isn't the most portable laptop available, the 17-cn0026nr isn't much worse, as would be expected for a 17-inch model. At 4.6 pounds and 15.78 x 10.15 x 0.78 inches, this boy is quite large. Compared to the LG Gram 17, which is 15.0 by 10.3 by 0.7 inches and weighs only 3 pounds, it is practically enormous. It also comes as no surprise that, weighing 3.4 pounds and measuring 10.76 x 14.6 x 2.12 inches, the 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is more portable than the HP 17-inch laptop.

HP uses a lot of ports to offset the size of the 17-cn0026nr. There is a power jack, an SD card slot, an HDMI port, a headphone jack, and one USB Type-C connector on the right side, and a USB Type-A port and an HDMI port on the left.


The display on the HP 17-cn0026nr isn't the ideal for creating media. Despite having an Intel Iris Xe graphics card and an HD+ (1600 x 900) quality screen, it is not capable of handling photos or digital artwork. All it does is let you examine and evaluate data on a large screen that has enough brightness and a wide color palette.

Choose a laptop with a dedicated graphics card and a brighter screen if you need it for photo editing. In any event, you ought to give your dream laptop a second thought if it doesn't have a maximum brightness of at least 300 nits by 2022. For this, you can consider the Razer Blade Stealth 13 or the MSI Creator 15.

Keyboard and Touchpad

The keyboard on the 17-cn0026nr is excellent and very comfortable to use. Although not as fantastic as the Lenovo ThinkPad T490, the keys' travel is still great compared to other notebooks in this price range. You won't have any strain when working late at night because they are backlit.

The power switch on this keyboard is located in the upper-right corner rather than on the side of the chassis, which is another intriguing characteristic. Similar keycaps to the HP Envy 13 are found here; however, because the HP 17-inch laptop is larger, there is room for a number pad.

When you adjust the sensitivity level in the settings, the trackpad becomes much easier to use. It is a little challenging to use out of the box. After using the smoothest trackpad, the Asus ZenBook 14, I'm convinced that all other trackpads aren't up to par for my needs.

Battery Life

With the display set to its highest brightness of 150 nits, the 17-cn0026nr provides a good 7 hours and 26 minutes of battery life. According to HP's official specs sheet, the laptop can run for more than 8 hours, but that number only adds up if you're not using it heavily.
