While smartphones and tablets have become more useful in recent years, laptops and desktops remain the default productivity tools in many offices. Those who prefer ultrabooks with powerful components will be pleased by the updated Pavilion 14 range, which comes with major changes.
HP has worked hard on the new configurations, which come with a refreshed design and edge-to-edge panels that maximize the size of the screen, which is a great chance for many users who don’t like thick bezels. Potential buyers can pick between six colors, but availability will vary from country to country.
Power of the Tiger
The new configurations are powered by Intel- fined in the form of the eleventh generation Intel Tiger Core CPUs. Users will have the option to pick between i3,i5, and i7 configurations, but HP hasn’t specified the exact CPU models that will be available. Nvidia’s MX450 will be available as a dedicated graphics card.
Intel Optane Memory 10 will also be present and coupled with up to 1TB of storage space, bringing an increased hardware performance at a lower price. It is expected that at least 8GB of RAM will be available by default, and the improved memory would ensure up to 8 and a half hours of active screen time on a single charge.
Besides the edge-to-edge panel, the ultrabook also comes with a stylish metal chassis and the option to pick between HD, FHD, and UHD panels. There are also several ports, including the venerable 3.5 mm audio jack, two USB Type-A ports, and a microSD card reader.
Fast internet access will be provided by a Wi-Fi 6 certified modem. Bluetooth 5.0 is included for the use of wireless accessories, as well as high-quality speakers manufactured by Bang& Olufsen. Those who want a fast login solution or increased security can also opt for a fingerprint reader.
