HP Pavilion 13: Compact Tiger Lake laptop launched in three colours for US$679.99
HP has announced a revised version of the Pavilion 13, which now features 11th Gen Intel Core processors. The new model has an 84% screen-to-body ratio, a 3-sided micro-edge bezel display and a metal chassis. The former will be available in HD, FHD or UHD resolutions, which will be complemented up top by a small webcam.
The new Pavilion 13 will be available in three colours options, including an all-silver edition. HP describes the other two as Warm Gold/Luminous Gold and Ceramic White/Natural Silver. The first colour of those combinations will be used on the display lid, with the other being used for the keyboard deck and bottom chassis.
According to HP, the Pavilion 13 should last up to 8:30 hours between charges. The company claims that the laptop should reach 50% battery within 30 minutes of recharging too, although this may only be via the machine's proprietary charging port. The Pavilion 13 also supports USB Type-C charging. HP has included a Wi-Fi 6 modem too with Bluetooth, B&O-branded speakers and an optional fingerprint reader. The latter sits beneath the machine's up and down arrow keys, which are half-sized.
The HP Pavilion 13 will be available from October in the US at HP.com, Amazon, Costco.com and other retailers. The machine will start at US$679.99, but HP is yet to announce full pricing and international availability.
