Why We Like HP Pavilion Gaming 15.6-inch FHD Laptop

Outstanding General Performance: The AMD Ryzen 5 CPU it uses is a beast by itself, but even better is that it’s the 4600H Hexacore model. As such, it’s more than well-equipped to handle the rest of the laptop’s hardware perfectly. Your laptop will always perform smoothly.

Uses A Powerful GPU: On top of that, the NVIDIA GTX 1650Ti it uses is perfect for practically any game, as it also comes with 4 GBs of VRAM. You don’t need to worry at all about the graphics side; the card being a GTX series card is more than enough. You can even enjoy the high refresh rate properly, thanks to the 144Hz screen.

Eye-catching Design: It doesn’t only offer performance, though. It comes with everything to be worth more than the 60k it costs. For a start, the hinge is designed to look sharp yet striking. While looking good, it’s more durable than standard laptops too. That’s to be expected, though, with it being an HP laptop. However, that’s not everything about the quality. The laptop is also designed for better passive cooling.

Great For Watching Movies: Moving on, let’s talk about the display the hinges are holding. It’s remarkable at this price, as it also compliments the laptop’s design with its slim bezels. Even better, it has an FHD resolution and an anti-glare coating. The actual colour reproduction is nothing to scoff at either, as it offers accuracy and clarity. The laptop is practically a must-buy if you intend to use other ways to entertain yourself other than browsing or gaming, like watching HD movies. Even the audio is top-tier.

Equipped For Streaming: You can also use this laptop to stream, as it comes with an HD camera. It’ll record you clearly, and your voice will be just as clear with the integrated dual-array microphones. The hexacore processor also helps since you can switch between the game and other stream-related apps more easily.

 

Notes About The Issues

Needs More USB Ports: We noticed that the laptop lacked USB ports. There are only two of those, and that’s not nearly enough for a gaming laptop, as you need to connect many devices simultaneously while gaming. A mouse, a keyboard, and a controller; it all adds up, and you can quickly run out of ports.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the display's refresh rate?

It’s 144Hz.

Does it support m.2 SSD?

Yes, the laptop supports all NVME m.2 SSD drives. But we advise that you get the SSDs meant for PCIe Gen 3 slots instead of the latter Gen 4 ones. That’s because you won’t be able to use that sort of SSD at its full potential.

Can I change the keyboard lights?

You can’t do that; they’re preset and not customisable.

 

Verdict

This HP Pavilion Gaming 15.6-inch FHD Gaming Laptop is a unique combination of design and power, as it looks stunning while packing a lot of powerful hardware. If you want a fairly powerful laptop but don’t have any specific task for it besides gaming in mind, you’ll be happy to go for this one. You can just about do any heavy task, be it gaming, video editing, watching HD movies or even streaming.
