As we have already mentioned, the HP Pavilion Gaming 15 2018 looks completely different from its predecessor, which is definitely good news for us.

So far, the Pavilion Gaming laptop looks more like an elegantly reworked machine, while the new notebook has a more aggressive look with typical game subdivision edges and patterns.

The most appealing novelty in the Pavilion Gaming design is the removal of thick borders around the screen or the replacement of them with thinner borders. Just like the Lenovo Legion Y530 and the ASUS ROG GL504.

This is an amazing trend that we have been expecting for the past few years. Here’s how it affects the size of your notebook.

The thinner border makes the laptop thinner, although its predecessor is superior to it in all other respects. But let’s not forget that the Pavilion Gaming 15 2018 is much more powerful. So the minimum increase in length and thickness is not just reasonable.

Although the main order of the case on the day is plastic, the main panel around the keyboard is metal, which enhances the stability of the body when using the computer.

The keyboard has large and comfortable buttons – our only complaint is about the arrows, more precisely the up and down buttons are next to each other, and their total area is equal to the standard value of the other buttons.

There is a NumPad that is also very comfortable to use. In addition, the touchpad is very wide (11.5 cm), making it easy to handle and use gestures.

The laptop cover does not attract fingerprints, but it is easy to appear in the palm rest area, so if you insist on cleaning, you must clean it from time to time.

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15 2018 is equipped with a full HD panel, model number AUO B156HAN08.2 (AUO82ED). It has a diagonal of 15.6 inches (39.62 cm) and a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. In addition, the screen ratio is 16:9, the pixel density is 142 PPI, and the pixel pitch is 0.18×0.18 mm.

When viewed at a distance equal to or greater than 24 inches, the screen becomes Retina (from this distance, one eye stops distinguishing between different pixels, and looking at the laptop is normal.

This being a cheap laptop, and you are not getting anything too clever in terms of design. And it’s not thin or light or made from premium materials. However, the Hp Gold Laptop casing and the striped pattern on the inside look rather fetching, and they’re nicely contrasted by the chromed hinges and black screen surround.
