One thing’s for sure – the Pavillion doesn’t look like the typical gaming laptop. Instead of the tired black-and-red motif, the laptop has black with emerald accents. And if you really want to step off the beaten path, you can get the system with purple flourishes. Opening the laptop reveals a green backlit keyboard with some funky polygon-shaped speakers.
The HP Gaming Pavilion 15’s 15.6-inch, 1920 x1080 screen isn’t the brightest or the most colorful, but it managed to deliver good image quality nonetheless. To test it out, I watched the first Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer. I could see the individual parts of Rey’s lightsaber clearly, the desert environments of the trailer looked crisp, and the smallest details during action scenes (such as the intense bright green of blaster fire) really popped.
