HP ProBook 430 G7 in 3 Minutes

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the HP ProBook 430 G7 in three minutes.

HP ProBook 430 G7 Overview

The design of the ProBook 430 G7 is the same as the previous model the HP ProBook 430 G6. I did a review on the G6 and you can compare the two by using the link above. Personally, I think that HP have the design of the G6 and G7 right so this is probably why they have not changed it.

Pricing for the G7 starts at $792 USD for the Intel i3 CPU and goes up to $1118 USD for the i7 CPU.

Battery Life

In the box, you will get a black HP laptop bag. Warranty and setup documentation. Along with a 45 watt power adapter. The laptop uses around 31 watts of power, which is good. However, the battery life is not so great and will last around seven hours and take almost two hours to fully charge.

Next you will have the Hp ProBook G7 itself. The G7 comes with a 13.3 inch LED SVA Anti-Glare HD Display. With a resolution of 1366×768 and 220 nit of brightness. It is a TN Panel and while movies look ok you can configure the laptop with a higher res IPS panel when you buy it. However, the response time is not great so it not designed as a gaming laptop.

Will it run FortNite

Out of the box, though I was able to get FortNite to run ok on giving up about 35 to 50 Frames per second. This would be mostly due to the Intel quad core i5 Comet Lake CPU and 8gb of ram as the Intel 620 GPU has no memory and is kind of old now.

Finger Print Scanner and G7 Hardware

The G7 does also have a finger print scanner, which allows you to unlock Windows with a touch of the button. Along the top, you will find a integrated HD 720pwebcam with dual microphone and indicator light. One of the cool things about the G7 design is you can close the camera off with a sliding button. On the right side, you have the charging port, USB C port. RJ45 Ethernet, HDMI port, USB 3 port and Audio combo.

You also have an indicator light to show when the laptop is being charged. The USB C doubles as a display port so if you have a USB C to HDMI adapter you can plug in an external display. On the left, you have a Kensington lock, USB 3 and SD card reader. The SD card sits flush in the laptop so you can use this port to upgrade the storage without opening the case.

Sound

The ProBook 430 G7 speakers are pretty good. They are not too loud and missing some base, but otherwise sound pretty good. The Trackpad is nice and wide but I do find myself right clicking allot. Because to left click you need to press on the left side of the Trackpad.

Keyboard

The keyboard is a delight to type on and does not bend when typing. The keys are also backlit and have off, on bright and brighter setting. The overall build feels like good quality and display hinge folds all the way back 180 degrees. You can also upgrade the G7 by removing the screws from the bottom cover. The system supports 32gb of RAM. So you can upgrade that along with a spot to add another SSD if you want. The WIFI has also been upgraded to WIFI 6.

Benchmark

Here’s the Geekbench CPU score and the GPU score. If you are looking for a gaming laptop then you are better off looking for a laptop with the NVidia MX GPU. However if you are after a light cheapish laptop to browse the web and check email then the G7 is a good option.

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the iPhone SE in three minutes. The iPhone SE is basically an iPhone 8 with the A13 Bionic processor from the iPhone 11.

Other accessories are Earpods with lighting connector. Lighting USB cable a five watt USB charger which will take 2 hours and 45 minutes to charge to full.

The SE has a 4.7-inch widescreen LCD multi touch retina HD display with IPS technology. It has a 1334 by 750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi. If you compare it with the iPhone 11 Pro on the left, you can see the Pro has allot more screen real-estate on its 5.8-inch OLED display.

How to join a Zoom Meeting PC & Mac

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how to join a Zoom meeting.

If you have been asked to join an online Zoom meeting but have no idea how to do that, do not freak out. This video will show you how to do it.

Guys this video will show you how to Join a Zoom meeting, but I will also be doing a video after this one which shows you how to create a Zoom meeting. So please hit that subscribe button.

Setup Zoom on PC and a Mac

I will show you how to do it on Windows first then Mac later in the video. Ok Let’s get started. Open up a web browser and type in Zoom.US.

That will take you to the official zoom website and you should see the Join a meeting link on the top of the web page. If you click on that it will take you to a Join a Meeting page, where is asks you for a meeting ID. Below that you also have an option of joining a meeting from H.323/SIP room. Don’t worry if this doesn’t make much sense to you just pointing this out so you know where to go if you need to connect to this type of meeting.

Ok let us check the meeting invite details that were emailed to us. So if you have been invited to a meeting you will normally have some meeting details sent to you via email. Here I have a copy of that invite which says 123myit is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom Meeting. Topic My meeting and a link which you can use to join a meeting. Go ahead and copy that link and paste it in your browser.

Meeting ID details

Press Enter on your keyboard and the meeting will start. You can also copy and paste the meeting ID directly into the web page or if you have the Zoom app installed you can copy the meeting ID into the Zoom app. And below that you can change your display name. When using the Zoom app you might be prompted for a password copy and paste that to join the meeting.

You might be prompted to download the Zoom app or if you already have it installed you will be prompted to Open Zoom meetings.  You should then see a popup, which says Please wait for the host to start this meeting. As you can see the meeting starts at 12pm but the time now is 11:15am. So we are a bit early. While we are waiting click test Computer Audio. In here you can test to see if your speakers and microphone are working. If you have different speakers and microphones you can change which one you want to use in these settings. For example you might have desktop speaker or headphone.

Join a zoom meeting
Zoom settings important to setup before you start.

Video Settings

If you click on Video you can change you video settings around. So here my webcam is just pointing at my Samsung phone playing a video. If you want you can rotate your video. Under camera if you have more than one camera you can select a different one. Below that you can change the ratio from Widescreen to Original. Enable HD just allows you to up the resolution so that your camera looks less pixelated. Mirror my video flips the video around. This is important if you are reading a book or something and you want to turn the text around the right way for your views to see it. Touch up my appearance makes the video look better.

Virtual Background

Ok click on Virtual background. This allows you to virtually add a background behind you. So if I select the 123myIT logo I can add it behind me. If we untick mirror the logo faces the right way. Note that its not picking up the phone very well. We can fix this by using a green screen. I don’t have a green screen cloth but I can change the LEDs in the background to green. Watch this.

There you go you can see the phone now. Its not perfect but work pretty well on my hand!

Ok the meeting has started. Just select join with computer Audio. The first thing that I recommend doing is turning off your Audio and video in the bottom left until you are ready. Otherwise, you might interrupt the Host if he or she has started speaking. Next up select participants and chat in the bottom, this will allow you to see who is in the meeting and display the group chat if you have a question. 

Webcam

If your not camera shy you can show your video by pressing the Start video button in the bottom left hand corner along with the Unmute button to start speaking. If someone else is speaking its good practice to mute yourself until you want to talk again. Along the bottom you also have a thumbs up and clap reaction which displays on your video. You also have buttons to share your screen and record.

In the top you have gallery view and speaker view buttons. It just changes the view so you can see more participants if you need too.

If you want to make sure you leave a meeting, click the leave meeting button in the bottom right of the screen.

Join a Zoom Meeting on a Mac

Joining a meeting on the Mac is pretty much the same. Go to Zoom.us in the web browser. Click Join a meeting. Copy and paste your meeting id. If its your first time joining a meeting click download and run Zoom app. Press continue and enter your password to install. Paste your meeting ID and change your name if you want and click join. Copy and paste your password.

Congratulation you have joined a Zoom meeting. All the options will be the same as the first part of this video.
