HP is taking some risks with its budget Pavilion series by toying with different aspect ratios and offering higher resolution displays approaching 2.5k. The manufacturer is even showing a preference for AMD instead of the usual Intel Core-U options.

Not to be confused with the Gigabyte Aero series, HP will soon be launching the Pavilion Aero series complete with impressive specifications especially for a Pavilion-class product. Most notably, the model will be the company's lightest consumer laptop yet at just under 1 kg and it will feature AMD Zen 3 CPUs up to the Ryzen 7 5800U.

Beyond the fast CPU and ultralow weight, the HP system will also carry a 16:10 display with a 2.5k native resolution, 400 nits of brightness, and full sRGB coverage. Exact specifications like dimensions and other details are still under wraps as of this writing.

Pavilion laptops in general are typically thicker and less powerful than the pricier Envy or Spectre options and so it's actually quite surprising to see HP announce such lofty performance and size targets for its new 13.3-inch Pavilion Aero 13. We suspect that a larger 15-inch Pavilion Aero 15 may be in the works should the Pavilion Aero 13 prove to be popular with users.

The Pavilion Aero 13 will be available this July at HP.com for a starting price of $749 USD. Audiences overseas will have to wait a bit longer. A fully-loaded Ryzen 7 SKU may retail for closer to $1000 which we believe straddles the line between what can be considered budget or midrange.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
