Reviews for the HP Pavilion Plus 14 eh0097nr
The "Plus" doesn't mean plus-size. HP's latest Pavilion laptop adds a host of high-end features and performance upgrades that could have easily belonged to an Envy or Spectre model. Does the Pavilion Plus 14 cut any corners?

The HP Pavilion Plus 14 has so many positives for any user to enjoy. The stunning 14-inch 2.8k display is perfect for media consumption or digital art. Multi-taskers will love the speedy performance of the Intel Core 17 processor, even while running multiple demanding apps. And who doesn’t appreciate a comfortable keyboard? It truly has the makings of a five-star device. Unfortunately, the dismal battery life makes working on-the-go nearly impossible, which tips the scale out of that five-star range. What use is the ultraportability of this laptop if you’re still tethered to outlets all day? Unless you can adjust your workflow to match the short life of the HP Pavilion Plus 14, you might want to check out other ultra-portable options such as the MSI Prestige 14 Evo that offers similar performance for a similar price.

Despite its flaws, I see the Pavilion Plus 14 as a good midrange pick. The chassis is solid and lightweight, the camera is neat, and the screen is hard to beat at this price point. Even the MacBook Air lacks the 90Hz smoothness and OLED contrast the Pavilion can offer. That doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. The inefficiency of the processor really makes this ideal for a small group of shoppers who are looking for heavy-duty CPU power and a great screen on a really lightweight device. If you’re not among those folks and just want a well-performing ultraportable, there are better picks for you out there.

At this point, you might be wondering if you’re the right person to buy the HP Pavilion Plus. Ultimately, you might actually get better battery life from the model with the U-series processor. In fact, I’d expect that you would, but I don’t have experience with that. As for Thunderbolt, most people actually don’t benefit from that. The Intel technology is somewhat ubiquitous, but at the same time, most people aren’t connecting an external GPU, dual 4K monitors, or anything else that you can’t do with just a standard USB Type-C port.

The HP Pavilion Plus 14 is an upgrade from the original Pavilion 14 and is meant to be a decently priced low-ranged laptop for those who need a dedicated work machine. It comes with a pretty solid screen size, which is complemented by the thinner bezels that give you more screen real estate. Its OLED touchscreen display is responsive and features an impressive picture quality that makes anything displayed through it crystal clear and sharp, which alone is worth the slightly higher price tag. This feature shines when paired with the webcam, which is crisp and clean when sitting through Zoom meetings, but it’s a shame the webcam doesn’t come with a mechanical privacy shutter though, since nowadays its pretty much a necessity.

Some of our favorite laptops have IPS displays, but once you've seen an OLED panel it's hard to settle for less. The HP Pavilion Plus 14 is a capable ultraportable in its IPS guise, but its OLED version is a major value even with the surcharge of our review unit's 1TB SSD. Losing a few ounces and gaining a few hours of battery life would make it awesome, but it still deserves Editors' Choice honors and a spot on your shopping list.

The HP Pavilion Plus 14 isn’t the first thin-and-light laptop I’ve reviewed with a 45-watt CPU and, apparently, thermally limited performance. However, it’s much more forgivable at an $850 sale price with a spectacular 90Hz OLED display. The battery life is disappointing, but the build quality is excellent, as are the keyboard and touchpad. And as this review is being written, you can buy the Pavilion Plus 14 with a Core i5-1240P CPU and a 2.2K IPS display for as low as $550, which is a tremendous value. The Pavilion Plus 14 is an attractive mid-range laptop even at full retail prices. And I can’t stress enough how nice it is to get such a great OLED display at such a low price.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.
In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.
74.23%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
