Model: When style meets entry-level components with a value-targeted price tag, a user will get something like the HP Pavilion Power 15t. The laptop delivers elegant good looks, impressive battery life (for a gaming notebook) and the solid performance by way of its Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor. The black brushed-aluminum chassis is positively lovely, especially the lid, which has a glossy Elphaba-green HP logo in the center. The rear of the lid gently curves over the hinge, with "Pavilion" spelled out in that lovely green. Opening the laptop revealed a black brushed-aluminum deck, with lovely splashes of green on the speaker, keyboard, and touchpad. At 2,45 kg (5.4 lb) and 37,85 x 25,15 x 2,54 cm (14.9 x 9.9 x 1 Zoll), the Power 15t is on par with the competition, including the Asus ROG Strix GL503 (2.54 kg / 5.6 lb, 38.35 x 26.16 x 2.29 cm / 15.1 x 10.3 x 0.9 inch) and the Origin PC Eon15-S (13.21 kg / 5.2 lb, 37.85 x 26.67 x 2.54 cm /14.9 x 10.5 x 1 inch). Unfortunately, the 15.6-inch touchscreen is dim and dull, which is not ideal for a gaming laptop. Covering just 68 percent of the sRGB color gamut, the Power 15t's screen is well below the 101-percent category average. As for brightness, the Power 15t's panel averaged 173 nits, which is below the 247-nit average. Outfitted with a 2.5-GHz Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor and 12 GB of RAM, the Power 15t is an able multitasker.

The Power 15t is equipped with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU with 4 GB of VRAM. It is on the low-end of Nvidia's 10-Series Pascal GPUs but can still deliver solid gaming performance in more modest settings. Despite its discrete GPU, the Power 15t does not offer much in the way of gaming-centric software. In fact, a user only gets Nvidia's GeForce Experience, which offers a suite of utilities to enhance their gaming experiences, such as Battery Boost, Game Optimization and ShadowPlay, which lets user live stream their games. Gaming laptops typically suffer from short battery life, but that is not the case with the Power 15t. The notebook lasted 6 hours on the Laptop Mag Battery Test, which consists of continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi. The notebook also has a number of HP-branded apps and utilities, such as HP Recovery Manager in case of a system crash. A user also gets HP Support Assistant for running system updates and troubleshooting fixes. Orbit lets user pair their laptop and smartphone so they can seamlessly transfer content (documents, photos, music, and videos) between devices. The notebook has a nice selection of ports, including a USB 3.0 port, a USB Type-C port, HDMI, a 3-in-1 card reader, Gigabyte Ethernet and a power port on the right side. A quick glance along the left reveals an additional two USB 3.0 ports, a headset jack, and a secure lock slot.
