As new RTX gaming laptops come out about every week, the costs of GTX 10 series laptops are being reduced significantly. Today, I have with me the HP Pavilion gaming laptop, which is now selling for a ridiculously low $650, or Rs. 95,000, here in Nepal. So, is this now the greatest low-cost gaming laptop? In this review of the HP Pavilion Gaming laptop Series, we will respond to that.

Design & Build
Thus it is midway between a conventional gaming laptop and a standard notebook in terms of appearance. Not your standard rectangle laptop, this one. It doesn’t have to appear like a high-end gaming laptop just because it is less expensive.
Although it doesn’t go all out, the jagged edges and unlevel exhaust grills give off a slight OMEN feel. It only hints at gaming, rather than screaming it. In the end, there must be some distinction between more inexpensive and costlier ones.
There is a constant accent of green in terms of appearance. Everything is green, including the illumination on the keyboard and the HP logo on top. Perhaps they take the “Go Green” movement too seriously.
But the laptop really looks rather well with the green accent. Despite the fact that it could appear great, it is a pleasant change from the obtrusive red hue or the RGB lights. These kinds of laptops are hardly common. The Dell G7, which had a blue accent, was also quite attractive.
Additionally, this one has a “Matrix” sense about it. The construction appears to be rather strong. When pushed, the lid and the keyboard deck bend just a little bit. Despite the fact that the majority of it is made of plastic, it appears to be rather durable. But precisely because of it, it is rather lightweight for a gaming laptop.
Although it weighs 2.2 kg, this gaming laptop is not the lightest available for 15″ gaming laptops. Its hinge looks to be tight, and opening it with one hand is impossible. However, few people will be concerned by that.
Ultimately, this is a gaming computer that only very quietly advertises itself as such. You can take this to work and play games on it too.
For a budget gaming laptop, the display is as fantastic as it gets. It has a Full-HD IPS display and decent viewing angles. Both video games and movies work reasonably well with the resolution. With around 60% of sRGB and 40% of Adobe RGB covered, color accuracy suffers. Therefore, it’s not something you would want to utilize to create content.
You may actually see a difference in color for the same image or video when you compare it side by side with a laptop that has a superior display. The display is only enough for gaming, along with the contrast.
Maximum brightness is 250 nits. That means it is OK indoors if the illumination is enough. It is not something you should use outside or in dim lighting. You might have to get used to finding it challenging to make out dark movie scenes.
The excellent thing about this panel, though, is the narrow side bezels. Although not XPS thin, this is thin enough to increase its allure. This gives the laptop the appearance of being more expensive than it actually is.
Performance-wise, there is nothing to be unhappy with. The 8th generation Intel i5-8300H performs admirably. In comparison to the 7th generation i7-7700HQ, which reached its maximum speed at 3.8 GHz, you may increase it up to 4 GHz, which is quite a bit.
This is adequate for all jobs when coupled with 8 GB of RAM. For daily work, it can handle any sort of usage. If Google Chrome is open with more than 20 tabs open and you still want to use Photoshop or another program, you can. Even gaming is possible with all of that running in the background. Performance thus is not a problem.
Different versions of this laptop are available for gaming, one with a GTX 1050 and the other with a 1050 Ti. And as any rational person would, I advise you to spend the extra money to purchase the Ti version, which is marginally superior to the standard one.
The performance was as anticipated from other laptops with the same Graphics, and our unit was likewise the same. Most games may be played in Full HD with medium settings. Still, many video games are unable to run at 60 frames per second. You’d have to turn them down really low for that.
Ports and Connectivity
This laptop offers a wide variety of ports and connectivity options. Although Bluetooth 4.2 may not be one of them, it is difficult to want more from a cheap gaming laptop.
However, it does have reliable 2 x 2 ac Wi-Fi. It also has sufficient ports. A decent range of connections is provided by three USB-As, a USB-C that does not support Thunderbolt 3, an Ethernet port, an HDMI connector, an SD card slot, and a headphone jack.
You cannot expect much from it because of the 52 Watt-hour battery and the fact that it is a gaming laptop. It ran out of battery power after around 2.5 hours of use, during which time I streamed, browsed the web, and performed some office activities. You must plug it in in order to play games.
