HP has a ton of high-quality computers on the market, and the company also has some more affordable offerings. While the Pavilion Plus series of computers do get up there in price, they don’t shoot too far above the $1,000 mark. The company just introduced the new HP Pavilion Plus 16. This is the first 16-inch computer in the series, according to Engadget.
This series of computers could be thought of as the premium mid-rangers of HP’s computers. There’s a 14-inch variant that starts at $849.99. It comes with Windows 11 Home, a 13th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB of onboard storage, 16GB of RAM, and a 2.2K IPS LCD display.
The HP Pavilion Plus 16 comes with NVIDIA RTX graphics
As stated, this computer is the first in the series with a 16-inch display. Actually, the screen is 16.5 inches diagonal, and it’s an impressive panel. It’s a 2.2K OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. So, you can expect whatever you’re looking at to pop.
Moving onto the internals, this computer will have a selection of processors, but it will max out with the 13th-gen Intel Core -7 processor. Also, if you’re looking to do some gaming on this computer, the top model of the computer will use the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 GPU. This is a pretty high-end GPU, and it will be able to run a ton of the games that are on the market.
Aside from those internals, the HP Pavilion 16 Plus has up to 16GB of LPDDR5x RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. Just know that these will be present in the top model of the computer. As for battery capacity, we’re looking at a large 68Wh battery, and the company states that it can last up to 11:45 hours on a single charge for typical usage. If you’re only video-watching, then it should last you to around 15:45 hours.
Moving onto the ports, this computer gives you a nice array. It has two USB-A ports, a USB 3.2 Type-C port, and a Thunderbolt 4 port with USB power delivery. Other specs include B&O audio and Wi-Fi 6E.
This computer starts at $1,000 for the base model. It will arrive sometime in October in Natural Silver and Warm Gold. You’ll be able to pick one up from HP.com, Costco, and Amazon.
