HP has revealed its latest 13-, 14- and 15-inch Pavilion laptops that are it’s first to make use of 11th-generation Intel Core processors and Iris XE graphics that should give a huge GPU boost over last-gen Intel chips. They’re also among the company’s first laptops to use post-consumer-recycled and “ocean-bound” plastics instead of just ending up in the sea.
All the models now have 3D seamless metal chassis that says good-bye to parting lines and gives a cleaner look and feel. HP has also reduced the bezel size, given the Pavilion 15 an 86% screen to body ratio and smaller dimensions across the lineup. New cooling and fan design deliver a 27% airflow increase and a 16% reduction in noise.
HP is assuring us of battery life of around 8.5 hours after full charge, and you can get to a 50% charge in just 45 minutes. If you need more performance than the Xe graphics can deliver, the Pavilion 14 and 15 models are also in-store with NVIDIA GeForce MX450 graphics.
The company also added some extra amazing features like 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 also come with SD card slots.
The Pavilion 13 comes with 1080p or 4K Ultra HD panels, and starts at $680, while the Pavilion 14 and 15 models have either 720p or 1080p panels and begin at $580 and $600 respectively. All the models are expected to go on sale at HP.com beginning from next month.
