Consumers who previously looked up to HP’s more pricey Envy and Spectre series are now taking notice of the company’s bread-and-butter laptops, the Pavilions.

The Pavilion Plus 14 (starts at $729.99; $1,279.99 as tested) is a sleek aluminum ultraportable laptop with an optional OLED display, while the Pavilion Aero (released last summer) was quick, well-equipped, and lightweight at 2.2 pounds. In this article, we will read about the the review of HP Pavilion Plus Laptop 14.

Pricing and specifications for the HP Pavilion Plus 14 laptop

HP Pavilion Plus Laptop 14 is a surprisingly low-cost option for a surprisingly high-end configuration. This package includes a Windows 11 Home operating system, an Intel Core i5-1240p processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB solid-state drive. The 14-inch, 2240 x 1440-pixel IPS display is fine, but it’s disappointing that the base configuration doesn’t contain an OLED screen.

Particularly in its silver finish, HP Pavilion Plus Laptop 14 looks like something a business executive would use. The use of aluminum for the top, bottom, and keyboard area contribute significantly to the sturdy construction.I was able to apply pressure to the back of the lid without seeing any pixel bending, so I assume the display is sufficiently protected from accidental drops and other damage.

Even when using the laptop immediately under a ceiling fan, the lid can become unsteady due to the weight of the metal used in its construction. One of the best features of the HP Pavilion Plus 14 is its screen. There is an anti-glare coating on the 14-inch IPS panel and a resolution of 2240 x 1400 pixels, making images and text look more sharp and clear than they would on a standard full-HD display of this size.

Technical details and applications for the HP Pavilion Plus 14 Laptop

HP Pavilion Plus Laptop 14 Intel Core i5-12500H processor has 12 cores total—four performance cores and eight efficiency cores. Due to its larger L3 cache and higher base TDP of 45W, this H-series CPU should be more capable than its P-series counterpart (28W). Pavilion Plus 14 models sold in India can only be configured with the Intel Iris Xe graphics processor found in the CPU’s integrated GPU.

Since the 16 GB of DDR4 RAM is permanently attached to the motherboard through solder, it cannot be removed for replacement or upgrading. This may have been done by HP to make the laptop as slim as possible, which is good in and of itself, but it may make future repairs to the RAM more difficult. The 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD is upgradable, which is great news. The Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E modules of the Pavilion Plus 14 have 2×2 MIMO antennas. The laptop comes with a 90W USB Type-C power converter in addition to the 3-cell, 51Wh battery it has built in. The latter is convenient for transport due to its small size. Despite HP’s claim that the Pavilion Plus 14 weighs only 1.4 kg, I measured mine to be somewhat heavier.

For two weeks, I relied on the HP Pavilion Plus 14 as my primary laptop for work and also used it to watch a tonne of TV and movies.  The display’s contrast, brightness, and color accuracy are all top-notch. During the day, the lowest backlight level makes it difficult to read the letters and symbols on the keys; therefore, it’s better to have it at the highest setting or turn it off altogether. The HP Pavilion Plus 14 scored well in tests, sometimes even outperforming a laptop equipped with a Core i7 processor from the P-series. It performed quite well in both the single-core and multi-core tests of Cinebench R20, earning 631 and 4,103 points, respectively.

  •  Is it a good idea to buy an HP Pavilion Plus?

It’s hard to imagine that the HP Pavilion Plus, which has a high-quality OLED screen and costs less than $800, I wish the battery life wasn’t so short. Among laptops, the 14-inch HP Pavilion Plus is one of the few that provides excellent value for money.Like its name suggests, the Plus is an upgraded version of the standard Pavilion notebook.

Verdict

The HP Pavilion Plus 14 is a stylish and sturdy notebook that can handle everyday tasks and may even be a good fit for designers and other professionals in the arts. Some of the primary reasons you might want to consider it are its clear screen, small body, ergonomic keyboard, and decently strong hardware.

The price of Rs. 79,999 is reasonable when taking into account the complete package; however, if you don’t need the high-resolution display, you may want to explore the Pavilion 14 models, which offer virtually comparable capabilities but a full-HD display, for significantly lower price. The only big problem with the Pavilion Plus 14 is that its battery life is short, and the fact that its RAM can’t be changed could be a deal-breaker for some customers.
