Reviews for the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ak001ng

The HP Pavilion 15 Gaming Laptop proves it's possible to get a decent gaming laptop for under $1,000, but not without making some sacrifices. The $999 rig delivers solid overall performance, but you'll have to turn down the settings to play most games at the screen's native, 1080p resolution.

The HP Pavilion Gaming is a fantastic value laptop that's gaming-ready. The black-and-green colour scheme won't be to everyone's taste but it's very smartly done with a few likeable design flourishes. With its tempting price, this HP laptop means that gamers on a budget can finally get into playing the latest PC titles without having to sell everything they own. Why not buy two and get your own LAN party started? Just make sure you invite a friend around, or it'd be a bit weird.

HP Pavilion 15 Gaming Notebook review – HP’s second shot at gaming laptops
Source: Laptop Media English
At the end of the day, HP was able to build a decent gaming machine using the standard Pavilion 15 chassis. We liked the build quality and despite all the plastic, the machine feels sturdy and we didn’t find any inconsistencies such as cracks, holes or creaking parts. We were even surprised by the low weight and relatively thin profile. The interior is quite appealing and the design of the keyboard is just awesome. It’s comfortable for typing and gaming, but we would have appreciated full-sized arrow keys. As for the touchpad – it’s rather accurate and responsive, but feels a bit stiff and it’s too narrow, even for a 15-inch notebook.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
