HP has released new Pavilion Power notebooks powered by Intel's Core i5-7300HQ or the i7-7700HQ, and all models come standard with the GTX 1050 GPU. Prices start at US$949.99.

Even though HP has been actively promoting their Omen gaming laptops as of late, the Pavilion series remains the most profitable brand. With the latest price cuts for Intel’s 7th gen mobile CPUs, HP has recently released their own under US$1,000 laptops with the Pavilion Power series.

CPU options for the Power models include the Intel Core i5-7300HQ and the i7-7700HQ, while the graphics are provided by Nvidia’s new GTX 1050. Check out our detailed review of the  high-end HP Pavilion 15 Power 1GK62AV with the I7-7700HQ CPU.

  • a 15.6” IPS display with 1080p or 4K resolution
  • 8 or 16 GB of DDR4 RAM
  • 256 GB M.2 SSD option only for the top of the line model, and 1 TB 7200 rpm or 2 TB 5400 rpm HDDs for budget models
  • 0.94” thickness and 4.87 lbs weight

  • a full-size backlit ghost white or acid green island-style keyboard with integrated numeric keypad

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
