It takes the premium look and feel of HP’s ENVY and Spectre devices and brings the design to the Pavilion.
HP says it weighs under 1 kg and is the lightest consumer laptop. It comes in a full magnesium-aluminium chassis with a 16:10 micro-edge display. The PC has a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio with 10 percent more viewing space than the 16:9 ratio. It also sports a four-sided narrow bezel on the 13.3-inch diagonal display.
