HP Pavilion 14 launched with Intel Tiger Lake processors, an NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU and a UHD display
HP has unveiled the new Pavilion 14, which has received a complete overhaul. The Pavilion 14 now features 11th Gen Intel Core processors and an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU in a more compact design. HP boasts that the Pavilion 14 has an 84% screen-to-body ratio, 16% quieter fans and 27% increased airflow. Theoretically then, the Pavilion 14 should look more modern than its predecessor without sacrificing performance or cooling.
The new model will be available in six colours, although HP notes that final colour options will vary by country. The Pavilion 14 will combine two colours in all but the Natural Silver model. As the photos below demonstrate, the display lid will be finished in one colour and the chassis in another. HP will release the Pavilion 14 in the following colour combinations:
- Natural Silver
- Warm Gold/Luminous Gold
- Ceramic White/Natural Silver
- Serene Pink/Tranquil Pink
- Tranquil Pink/Natural Silver
- Ceramic White/Rose Gold
The Pavilion 14 will also have a 3-sided micro-edge bezel display, which will be available in HD, FHD or UHD resolutions. The metal chassis incorporates multiple ports too, including a microSD card reader, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.0 port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. HP has equipped the Pavilion 14 with a proprietary power connector, but the machine's USB Type-C port supports USB Power Delivery, along with data and DisplayPort.
HP has included a Wi-Fi 6 modem too with Bluetooth 5.0, B&O-branded speakers and an optional fingerprint reader. The latter sits between the keyboard and a much larger trackpad, which is closer to the size of the one that HP includes on the Envy 15. The keyboard has half-sized up/down arrow keys, though.
The Pavilion 14 will be available with 11th Gen Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, although HP is yet to specify which ones it plans to use. Additionally, the laptop will come with Intel Optane Memory H10 and up to 1 TB of PCIe storage. HP claims that the Pavilion 14 should last up to 8:45 hours on a single charge too and will recharge to 50% in 30 minutes.
The HP Pavilion will go on sale in the US in October from US$579.99. The company is yet to announce full pricing and international availability, though.
