If your budget allows, the versatile HP Pavilion 14 offers a stylish design, excellent build quality, and decent specifications.
With a fingerprint scanner, a decent webcam, a touch screen, and B & O speakers, it’s perfect for anyone looking for a laptop for a variety of tasks.
The’s battery life is mediocre, but its performance is above average thanks to the latest 11th generation Intel processors and other robust components. The main tension in the work here is the presence of the Honor MagicBook 14 at the same price.
Two USB 3.0 ports and one USB C connector on the Pavilion 14 allow power supply, 10Gbps transfer rates, and DisplayPort 1.4 connection. This provides you the freedom to daisy-chain as many displays as you need. There’s also an HDMI 2.0 connector for connecting to a regular display.
Whatever you need to exhibit your work, the Pavilion 14 is unquestionably adaptable. A micro SD card reader, a 3.5mm headphone and microphone combination, and Bluetooth 5 connectivity are also included. The power supply is a separate barrel connector, however, it may be charged by USB C as well.
The Pavilion 14 offers a 14-inch IPS anti-glare touchscreen display with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080). Especially with a matte black bezel, it’s not shy and plastic. Fortunately, these aren’t that bulky. At the top is also a 720p web camera with a built-in dual array microphone.
The image quality isn’t great, but it’s good enough for everyday video calls. Do not use this camera if you want to start a YouTube or Twitch streaming channel. It is recommended to use an external camera instead. See a summary of the best webcams.
The display also maximizes with 238 nits brightness (although HP promises 250 nits in the box). It’s not bad in itself. Some cheap laptops can only get up to 200 nits. This is because it is a common area where implementing cost savings can make things very difficult.
