Reviews for the HP Gaming Pavilion 15-dk0205ng

80% HP Gaming Pavilion 15 (2019) review: A premium gaming laptop with excellent audio quality
Source: The Indian Express English version
At Rs 124,990, HP Gaming Pavilion 15 feels like an affordable machine in a sea of gaming laptops that are designed for competitive gaming tournaments. This is a solid machine that can run virtual reality experiences, AAA-titles and editing software. But like I said, Pavilion 15 isn’t perfect. It too suffers from a disappointing battery life, like most other gaming laptops. So in case you are planning to buy the HP Gaming Pavilion 15, make sure to keep the power brick handy in your backpack every time you step out of the home.

70% HP Pavilion Gaming 15 2019 review: A home machine for casual gaming
Source: Business Standard English version
The HP Pavillion Gaming 15 is slightly bulky for an everyday machine that mostly stays in a bag but is good for working and gaming from home. The design, specifications and performance are good for a starting price of Rs 69,990 (with i5 processor and 60Hz refresh rate) if you can navigate the challenges of a mediocre battery life and a bit of heat.

80% HP Pavilion Gaming 15 review: Solid build, premium looks, robust performance from Rs 70,990
Source: India Today English version
As I said in the beginning, HP wants to get the user experience just right and after going through the laptop in detail, it seems that this laptop offers what it promises. For a gaming laptop, the performance is top-notch in its category along with a great display and good battery life. It's practical too with an easy-to-live keyboard and trackpad. But what conquers everything, in my opinion, is the stealth-inspired design and rock-solid build quality - something that's not seen in other gaming laptops at this price. The HP Pavilion Gaming 15 laptop feels well put together with an impeccable fit and finish, and for that reason alone, it is a recommendation for gamers on a budget.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
