Last week, HP held a big spring event, launching premium consumer laptops. And now it’s time for new laptops for the mainstream audience. The company announces HP Pavilion Plus 14 and Pavilion x360 14.
HP Pavilion Plus 14
The HP Pavilion Plus 14 comes with a 45-watt Intel Core i7-12700H processor. But you can configure it with a 28-watt P-series processor or even a 15-watt U-series processor. The graphics can be customized as well. Options include Intel Iris Xe, NVIDIA GeForce MX550, or GeForce RTX 2050. Another notable thing is that the laptop has a 14-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It comes in two versions. The first one has an anti-glare coating and 300 nits of peak brightness, with a resolution of 2,240×1,400. But you can opt-in for a 2,880×1,800 OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate, which is a great option for a mass product like this. The laptop also has an 87.21% screen-to-body ratio.
Another feature is the 5MP webcam, which will appear in both HP Pavilion Plus 14 and Pavilion x360 14. It not just allows you to shoot video in 1080p but also leaves room for Auto Framing which can move the field of view to focus on you. The laptop comes with pre-installed HP Palette software, which allows you to transfer images from the screen to an Android or iOS tablet and then use it to draw.
The HP Pavilion Plus 14 will be available from May 25 for $799. Color options include Space Blue, Warm Gold, Mineral Silver, Tranquil Pink, and Natural Silver.
HP Pavilion x360 14
The HP Pavilion x360 14 might not have an OLED display, high resolution, or even a high refresh rate. But, it comes with an optional 5G modem and HP claims that it supports almost all 5G bands. So you can be always connected, while on the go.
It is equipped with a 12th-generation Intel U-series processor, for better battery life on the go. It also has the same 5MP webcam with Auto Framing. The HP Palette is also available here. However, given the transformer form factor, you can draw directly on your device. The HP Pavilion x360 14 will be available this summer for $599.
