HP Pavilion just got lighter
HP has unveiled the Pavilion Aero 13, the company’s lightest consumer laptop to date. HP Pavilion Aero 13 weighs a maximum of 2.18 pounds (0.987 kg), making it one of the most portable laptops of any type or size available. Pavillion Aero 13 is powered by AMD’s Ryzen 5000 mobile CPUs, which range up to Ryzen 7 5800U.
HP Pavilion Aero 13 is made out of a magnesium-aluminum alloy and is available in four colors – delicate rose gold, warm gold, ceramic white, and natural silver. The Pavilion Aero 13 is the first to use a 13.3-inch 16:10 display with a 2.5K resolution, 400 nits of brightness, a 100 percent sRGB color palette, and have a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent, so it’s not only about losing weight.
HP Pavilion Aero 13 comes with WiFi 6 support, AI noise removal to reduce unwanted background sounds on video calls and up to 10.5 hours of use from a single charge.
The Pavilion has historically been HP’s budget brand, with larger and clunkier designs than the company’s more expensive lines, but this year HP has started reducing the bezels and chassis footprints on a number of its models.
AMD wins the battle
It’s hardly unexpected that this product will only work with AMD processors. Across the board, the newest Ryzen generation has outperformed competitive Intel processors. The 5000 generation has enabled manufacturers to release astonishingly small and light systems this year since they require less heavy-duty cooling to function properly. With AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HX inside, Razer was able to produce its thinnest and lightest Blade laptop yet.
HP Pavilion Aero 13 will go on sale in July with a starting price of $749.
Today, HP has also announced its M-series monitors coming in 24- and 27-inch sizes which includes the M24fwa and M27fwa FHD Monitors with Eyesafe-certified tech, better cable management, dual speakers, AMD FreeSync, and 99% sRGB. Made by recycled ocean-bound plastics the M24fwa and M27fwa will go on sale in July, with a price tag of $229.99 and $289.99, respectively.
