HP Pavilion laptops are the company's first to receive the 11th-gen Intel chip upgrade
HP has unveiled their first laptops that feature 11th-generation Intel Core processors with Iris XE graphics today. Not only that, but the new Pavilion lineup will also be the company's first laptops (together with Elite Dragonfly) to be made by using post-consumer-recycled and “ocean-bound” plastics. Now, let's take a look at what the new Pavilion laptops have to offer.
The new HP Pavilion laptops will be coming in three sizes including 13-inch, 14-inch, and 15-inch. All the models now have 3D metal chassis that allows them to give off a cleaner look and feel. The size of the bezels on the HP Pavilion 15 has been reduced as well to bring an 86 percent screen-to-body ratio. They will also come with a new cooling fan design that delivers a 27 percent airflow increase and a 16 percent reduction in noise.
After talking about the design, let's move on to the tech specs. Other than the latest Intel Xe graphics, consumers can go with the NVIDIA GeForce MX450 graphics for the Pavilion 14 and 15 models. If you prefer AMD over Intel, the Pavilion 15 will be available with Ryzen 4000-series processors too. For battery life, HP promised that the laptops can last for around 8.5 hours. They can also be charged up to 50 percent in just 45 minutes.
The other performance features will include dual-channel memory designs, WiFi 6 connectivity, Optane memory, SSDs up to 1 TB and USB-C with data, display and power deliver (PD). The 14- and 15-inch models will also come with SD card slots. For the price, the HP Pavilion 13 comes with 1080p or 4K Ultra HD panels and the price starts at 680 USD (~RM2,811). Meanwhile, the Pavilion 14 and 15 will have either 720p or 1080p panels and start at 580 USD (~RM2,398) and 600 USD (~RM2,480) respectively.
