2020 HP Pavilion 13 11th gen Core i7 Review: It's Actually Pretty Good

Raising the bar for budget laptops. One of HP's least expensive subnotebooks has inherited so many features from the pricier Envy and Spectre series that it ups the ante for what a "budget" laptop should be.

As well-known as the HP Pavilion series may be, we haven't actually reviewed a 13.3-inch model in a long while. We've had our fair share of 15.6-inch Pavilion 15 and 17.3-inch Pavilion 17 laptops over the years, but this is our first Pavilion 13 clamshell. How does HP's entry-level subnotebook compare to the ocean of other subnotebooks out in the market?

Our test unit is a higher-end configuration of the 2020 HP Pavilion 13 with the 11th gen Core i7-1165G7 CPU, 4K UHD display, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB NVMe SSD for approximately $900 USD. Lesser configurations with the Core i5-1135G7, 1080p display, 8 GB of RAM, and 256 GB NVMe SSD are available for $730 USD or even less if on sale. Annoyingly, there are no black color options at the time or writing.

Competitors to the HP Pavilion 13 include other budget-oriented subnotebooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad S540 13, Dell Inspiron 13, Acer Swift 3, or Asus VivoBook S13.

Case

Older Pavilion laptops were thick and looked cheap to reflect their budget price points. On this latest 2020 Pavilion 13, however, HP has trickled down many of the design features from the Envy and Spectre series for a simpler and more elegant look. The end result is a leaner laptop that feels more expensive than what its price might otherwise suggest. Paint the system gold and brown and one would easily mistaken it as an Envy 13 at first glance.

Spend some more time with the Pavilion 13 and the cut corners become more noticeable. Unlike the Envy 13 or Spectre 13 that this Pavilion aspires to be, the chassis is still mostly plastic and more susceptible to flexing and warping. Pushing down on the center of the keyboard, for example, warps the surface more than on HP's higher-end alternatives. The lid also flexes and twists more readily. Overall impressions are still much better than expected for an affordable laptop even if they're still a couple of steps down from the costlier HP Envy, Lenovo Yoga, Asus ZenBook, or Dell XPS.

Overall dimensions are only a bit larger than the Envy 13 since the bottom "chin" bezel of the Pavilion is slightly thicker. Otherwise, the system is as lightweight as the XPS 13 despite the size differences.

Aesthetically, the new Pavilion design borrows heavily from the more expensive Envy series for a classier look and feel

Connectivity

Port options are plentiful for a budget 13-inch Ultrabook including multiple USB-A ports and a USB-C port compatible with both DisplayPort and Power Delivery. Even the more expensive 2020 HP Envy 13 doesn't offer an integrated HDMI port unlike on our Pavilion. The main drawback is that Thunderbolt devices are not supported here.

An annoying design feature of the system is the flap covering the two USB-A ports. Since the flaps are so narrow, it's difficult to open them up and connect the cables without first lifting the entire laptop off the table. Still, we suppose this is better than not having any USB-A ports at all.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is not easy to remove as there are three hidden screws underneath the rear rubber feet plus two more hidden screws underneath the front feet. The edges and corners are tightly latched as well. There isn't much to upgrade once inside as both RAM and WLAN are soldered.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the paperwork and AC adapter. The standard one-year limited warranty applies with extension options if purchased from HP.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Key feedback and general layout are identical to the new Envy 13. The major difference lies in the positioning of the fingerprint reader as the one on our Pavilion is smaller and with its own dedicated space on the palm rest whereas the fingerprint reader on the Envy 13 replaces the right Ctrl key.

The typing experience is close to the Spectre 13 but not quite. Key feedback and travel is slightly softer and shallower, respectively, which makes key presses less satisfying. We still find it firmer than the keys on a Lenovo IdeaPad or Yoga.

Touchpad

The clickpad is small at 11 x 5.5 cm compared to 11 x 6 cm on the Envy x360 13. Cursor control is smooth and reliable with only a bit of sticking if gliding at slower speeds.

Clicking with the clickpad could have been more comfortable as feedback is spongy and travel is shallow. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of force to push down on the surface while the narrow dimensions make it more difficult to use for long sessions. Perhaps shifting the keyboard upwards to make room for a squarer clickpad could improve its usability.

Font and layout are identical to the Envy 13 aside from some changes to the secondary functions on the first row of keys. Backlight is included

Display

The 4K UHD panel is impressive considering that the Pavilion 13 is a budget-oriented laptop. We're able to measure a maximum brightness of 514 nits against the advertised 550 nits and an excellent contrast ratio to rival pricier flagship Ultrabooks like the XPS 13, Spectre 13, ZenBook S13, or Lenovo Yoga 9i. A key drawback to the display is its slow black-white and gray-gray response times for noticeable ghosting especially if running fast-paced games.

HWiNFO is unable to recognize the exact panel name other than the AU Optronics AUOCA8D controller. No other laptop in our database sports the same display controller.

Keep in mind that our measurements below reflect only the 4K UHD panel and not the inferior 250-nit 1080p panel which will be different in terms of colors, response times, contrast and more.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers about 93 percent and 61 percent of sRGB and AdobeRGB, respectively, to be similar to most FHD panels on high-end Ultrabooks like the XPS 13. The 4K panels on pricier laptops tend to offer full AdobeRGB coverage for deeper and more accurate colors like on the HP Spectre 13.

X-Rite colorimeter measurements reveal an uncalibrated display out of the box with an overly warm color temperature. This is a budget laptop after all and so a perfectly calibrated panel is not expected. Calibrating the panel ourselves would improve grayscale, color temperature, and RGB balance noticeably with a new average grayscale DeltaE value of just 1.2. We recommend an end-user calibration if possible to get the most out of the 4K UHD display.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
41.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 20.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 98 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 25.2 ms rise
↘ 27.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 86 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17043 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Users can select between the Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7 to replace last year's i5-1035G7 and i7-1065G7, respectively. Intel Iris Xe comes standard on all SKUs with no AMD or Nvidia options at the moment. Users should select RAM capacity carefully since the modules are fixed.

We ran all performance benchmarks below on Windows Best performance mode for the highest possible scores. HP Command Center was not pre-installed on our test unit.

 

Processor

Multi-thread CPU performance is 4 to 15 percent slower than the average Core i7-1165G7 in our database according to CineBench benchmarks. The short-lived Turbo Boost potential of the processor is to blame for the slightly underwhelming performance. The Razer Blade Stealth with he same CPU, for example, can run almost 20 percent faster. Nonetheless, performance is still roughly 15 to 20 percent faster than the older Core i7-1065G7 in multi-threaded loads or 25 percent faster in single-threaded loads.

Note that the competing Ryzen 7 4700U can outperform our Intel CPU by 65 to 80 percent in multi-threaded workloads while the Intel CPU has the advantage in single-threaded workloads by a smaller 15 to 25 percent.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-1165G7 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are in line with other laptop we've tested thus far each equipped with the same Core i7-1165G7 CPU. Results are consistently higher than Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 laptops including the XPS 13 9300 especially in Digital Content Creation where graphics performance can make a big difference.

We experienced no software or hardware issues during our time with the test unit. It did, however, automatically restart once while we were in the middle of running benchmarks. The fact that this can still occur on a Windows 10 machine is frustrating to say the least.

Storage Devices

Our unit shipped with the mid-range Samsung PM991 NVMe SSD instead of the costlier and faster PM981a as found on higher-end laptops like the EliteBook 1030 G7 or Razer Blade Stealth. Transfer rates are comparable to the Intel 660p while being much faster than any SATA III solution like the Kingston drive in the Asus VivoBook S13. Interestingly, it can take a while to reach the maximum theoretical transfer rates of the PM991 as shown by our DiskSpd Read Loop test results below.

See our table of HDDs and SSDs for more benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance

3DMark results are again excellent with scores that are marginally higher than the discrete GeForce MX350. As we've mentioned before, however, performance in real-world games consistently trails behind the same Nvidia GPU. Even with this in mind, gaming performance is still better than ever for an Intel integrated GPU.
