Source: Think Digit
The HP Pavilion Plus 16 is an impressive blend of style and practicality, offering a sleek, modern design with a sturdy three-sided metal body and an aluminum display shell. It’s notably portable for a 16-inch laptop, balancing a large screen with ease of transport, making it ideal for those who value both a spacious workspace and mobility. Additionally, its environmentally conscious design, incorporating recycled aluminum, adds to its appeal. Performance-wise, the HP Pavilion Plus 16 provides good value for its price, especially when compared to pricier models like the Dell XPS 17 and Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra. While its RTX 3050 GPU and SSD speeds don’t match the higher performance of these more expensive laptops, they are sufficient for everyday tasks, casual gaming, and general multimedia use. This makes the HP Pavilion Plus 16 a solid choice for users seeking a well-rounded, budget-friendly laptop that doesn’t compromise on style or functionality.

There’s not much ENVY with the Pavilion Plus 16 (2023), but there’s clearly some good OMEN here. Pun aside, the HP Pavilion with the dedicated NVIDIA GPU, is a good choice if laptops with big screens are your thing. It’s not a laptop from HP’s OMEN gaming series, but there’s definitely a good amount of juice to run some demanding titles. Productivity-wise, the Pavilion Plus 16 borrows some features from mid-range HP ENVY laptops, for instance, good webcam and speakers. However, it skips the most important features from its ENVY siblings: long battery backup and fast charging. HP could have also taken greater advantage of the big build by adding some extra ports, like an SD card reader.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
