HP Pavilion 15 (2021) Laptop Review: 11th Gen Intel and GeForce MX450 Combo

Do Iris Xe and GeForce MX make a good team? The latest Pavilion 15 is powerful for a budget laptop, but the $1000+ asking price straddles the line between what we would consider "budget" in the first place. Users will have to really value the discrete GeForce MX450 if they choose this Pavilion over alternatives.

It's been two years since we last reviewed a standard HP Pavilion 15 and a lot has changed since then. HP has updated the chassis design as well as the 8th gen Whiskey Lake-U CPU and GeForce MX250 GPU to 11th gen Tiger Lake-U and the MX450, respectively. The Pavilion name carries some of HP's most affordable laptops in contrast to the higher-end Envy series and flagship Spectre series.

The system we're looking at today has been fully configured with the Core i7-1165G7 CPU, 16 GB of RAM, 1 TB PCIe SSD, and dedicated Nvidia graphics for about $1100 USD. Its specifications are therefore higher than your typical budget Ultrabook especially in terms of graphics as many in this category have no Nvidia options at all.

Competitors to the Pavilion 15 include other entry-level 15.6-inch multimedia laptops like the Dell Inspiron 15 5502Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15, Honor MagicBook 15, or Asus VivoBook S15 S533EQ.

Case — A Sideways Step In Quality

When compared to the older 2019 design, the 2021 model has narrower top and bottom bezels for a smaller footprint while using the same metal and plastic materials. The speaker grilles along the top of the keyboard are now gone for a more simplistic appearance. It's a basic matte impression with none of the flashy chrome-cut trims or sharp MacBook-like edges of the Spectre or Envy, respectively. Whether it looks any better than a competing Asus VivoBook or Lenovo IdeaPad is up to user preference.

Chassis rigidity is weak around the lid and front corners of the base where the system is most susceptible to twisting. It's only a bit better than the aforementioned VivoBook or IdeaPad but not enough to really make a difference in the long term.

As a budget laptop, the Pavilion 15 isn't trying to be the thinnest or lightest in its category; it just needs to be "good enough" against the competition. Size and weight are therefore very similar to the budget 15.6-inch laptops from other OEMs including the Asus VivoBook S15 or Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15. Moving up to the sleeker HP Envy 15 or Spectre x360 15 will actually be even heavier since those systems have stronger metal frames instead of plastic.

Disappointingly, the chassis feels like a step sideways from the 2019 model in terms of rigidity

Connectivity — No More RJ-45

Port options are decent for the size. We're surprised to see HDMI 2.0 instead of 1.4 meaning the system properly supports external monitors of up to 4K at 60 FPS. There is no Thunderbolt support, however, as HP wants users to upgrade to the costlier Envy or Spectre series instead.

DisplayPort via USB-C appears to be broken on our unit as shown here. The image on the external monitor would twitch and display incorrectly no matter the settings. We even tried different monitors and laptops, but the results wouldn't change. This seems to be limited to the USB-C port as video-out via HDMI would work without any issues.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the spring-loaded MicroSD reader is relatively fast at about 70 MB/s. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 15 seconds compared to almost twice that on the older Pavilion 15 Gaming.

Communication

The Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity much like on most other Tiger Lake-U laptops. Connection is stable and without any issues when paired to our Netgear RAX200 test router.

Webcam

Camera quality remains unchanged gen-to-gen. We would at least like to see a camera kill switch or privacy shutter much like on most other laptops these days. There is no IR camera for Windows Hello support.

Maintenance

HP Pavilion laptops are traditionally difficult to crack open and it's no different here. The bottom panel hides four screws underneath the rubber feet to dissuade end-user servicing. Even after removing all the screws, we still found the panel difficult to remove without damaging the chassis. End-user upgrades like RAM and storage and therefore more difficult than it needs to be.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the barrel-type AC adapter and paperwork. A one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies.

Input Devices — Surprisingly Comfortable Keyboard

Keyboard

Keyboard layout has changed slightly from the 2019 model. The power button, for example, is now a regular keyboard key instead of being off to the left corner. Otherwise, the typing experience remains largely the same. Feedback is surprisingly firm and with good travel to be better than the spongier and lighter keys of the Asus VivoBook or Lenovo IdeaPad.

The NumPad keys offer similar feedback to the QWERTY keys for a good sense of uniformity. It's unfortunate that the NumPad keys are narrower and therefore more cramped for larger fingers.

Touchpad

The Precision clickpad is relatively large at 11.5 x 7.4 cm to be essentially the same as the clickpad on the pricier Envy 15 Creator. Traction is smooth when gliding at medium-to-fast speeds while slower speeds will result in moderate sticking to aid in precision. On the other hand, clicking on the clickpad is both shallow and spongy for an uncomfortable experience without an external mouse.

Display — Sharp, But Not Bright

The display is both good and disappointing. It's good in that contrast ratio is relatively high for a budget laptop at over 1000:1 and that images are sharp because to the glossy overlay. Response times are also decent for reduced ghosting when playing games. Unfortunately, the disappointingly dim backlight and limited colors prevent the display from being outstanding in all aspects. Expect some glare even when indoors.

* ... smaller is better

Color coverage is limited to just 64 percent of sRGB to represent an entry-level display. Most mid-range to higher-end laptops nowadays promise at least 90 percent sRGB coverage for stronger colors.

X-Rite colorimeter results are a mixed bag. While grayscale and gamma are decent, certain colors like blue and magenta are very off with high deltaE values of 19.5 and 9.9, respectively. These two colors would remain more inaccurate than any other color by large margins even after calibration. Though perfectly fine for web browsing, video, or gaming, graphics editors may want to connect an external monitor or consider a higher-end laptop with more accurate colors. This is supposed to be a budget HP laptop, after all.

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
23.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.6 ms rise
↘ 10 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
22.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10 ms rise
↘ 12.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 detected 26320 Hz ≤ 43 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 26320 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 43 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 26320 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is poor because of the overwhelming glare. The dim backlight is unable to overcome both the glossy overlay and natural ambient lighting for a washed out screen. If outdoor visibility is a concern, then you may want to invest in a Spectre convertible instead which offers much brighter display options.

Performance — GeForce MX450 Powerhouse

Though the Core i7-1165G7 has become ubiquitous, it's the GeForce MX450 GPU that separates the Pavilion 15 from most other Ultrabooks. Laptops with Tiger Lake CPUs typically lack discrete graphics options since the integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU competes directly with the GeForce MX series.

AMD Ryzen options are available for lower prices with similar display, RAM, and storage options. However, they lack the GeForce MX GPU and AX201 Wi-Fi 6 wireless of the Intel SKUs.

Our unit was set to High Performance mode prior to running any performance benchmarks below for the highest possible scores.

Processor — Limited Turbo Boost Power

Single-thread performance is slightly above the average Core i7-1165G7 laptop in our database by a few percentage points while multi-thread performance is slightly under. Overall performance is somewhat lacking as a result as CineBench scores are comparable to the older and cheaper Core i5-1035G1 even though we know the Core i7-1165G7 is capable of much more. The ADATA Xenia, for example, offers up to 25 to 30 percent faster multi-thread performance than our HP despite the fact that both systems come with the same processor.

Storage Devices

Our unit comes with a mid-range PCIe 3.0 x4 1 TB Samsung PM991 NVMe SSD. The manufacturer advertises sequential read and write rates of 2300 MB/s and 1350 MB/s, respectively, which we can confirm. It's a fast drive relative to the competing Intel 660p or Toshiba BG4 commonly found on other budget laptops.

HP offers no secondary internal storage options.

GPU Performance

Graphics performance is comparable to the Iris Xe 96 EUs in worst case scenarios. More often than not, however, the GeForce MX450 will handily outperform the integrated Intel solution especially when gaming. Running DOTA 2 Reborn on maximum 1080p settings, for example, results in 2x faster frame rates on our Pavilion system when compared to any Iris Xe laptop even though their 3DMark scores are relatively close. Having separate power envelopes for the CPU and GPU means neither processor will be as limited by the performance of the other.
