HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop, despite the rise of HP’s Omen line, may seem like a relic from years past. Granted, Omen’s “By Gamers, By Gamers” credits are absent from the Pavilion line but … well, what’s really in a name? The Pavilion Gaming Laptop is truly a veiled Omen, an entry-level peer with mainstream branding.

In this period of intense teleworking, it is good to have a versatile and discreet machine. The HP Pavilion Gaming 17 laptop, equipped with a GTX 1650, precisely meets this definition. And it is on promotion at € 699 at Cdiscount.

The HP Pavilion Gaming is a 17-inch laptop, and if its name and design make it more suitable for gamers, its technical characteristics make it a rather versatile machine. In addition to an Intel Core i5 9300H processor and a GTX 1650 graphics circuit, the user can count on a fast storage system (512 GB on SSD), 16 GB of DDR4 memory in dual channel , and an IPS Full HD screen.

 HP Pavilion Gaming strong point

The configuration proposed here is very homogeneous in HP Pavilion Gaming 17 . The processor is well sized compared to the graphics card, and the storage system is fast and large enough to be self-sufficient at first. The addition of a second unit is possible, if necessary.

Its other strengths

  • Full HD IPS panel
  • Good overall performance
  • Fully functional chassis, with multiple inputs / outputs and a card reader

What could hold you back

A design that lacks modernity.
