HP Announces HP Pavilion Gaming Notebook

If you don't demand top graphics performance while on the go, then HP may have a laptop in-line with your needs, as it just unveiled the Pavilion gaming laptop, sitting at $900. The laptop features Nvidia GTX 950M graphics and an Intel Core i5 processor for starters, with a Core i7 CPU as an option. It has a 15.6-inch, HD display at the starting price, but you'll be able to bump up to a full HD IPS display with touch if you're willing to pay more. It also measures 28.8mm thin and weighs 5.46 pounds, making it thinner and lighter than some of the other gaming notebooks out there.

For connecting external devices, there are two USB 3.0 ports, one of which is a Sleep and Charge port, and one USB 2.0 port. There's also an HDMI port, GbE LAN port, and SD card reader. The backlit keyboard glows bright green with a fierce gradient reptilian pattern on the keyboard deck. The RJ45 port gives customers the flexibility to hardware into a network for optimal connectivity.

Finally, the system has an optical drive (we're guessing a DVD burner) and dual speakers pumping out audio tuned by Bang & Olufsen.

With Windows 10, the HP Pavilion Gaming notebook will deliver great experiences on games built for DirectX 12, bringing new levels of efficient performance and new visual effects to gamers. Now if you'd rather not spend a couple of thousand for a gaming notebook but want one that is capable of gaming, you might be interested in the HP Pavilion Gaming notebook. Where the HP Omen starts at almost $1,500, the new Pavilion Gaming notebook is expected to start at $899.99 when it becomes available on November 8th.
