HP announces the Pavilion Aero 13 Laptop PC, here is everything you need to know about the new device. The Pavilion Aero is a 13.3-inch ultra-light laptop powered by an AMD Zen 3 core architecture mobile processor. 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.

HP says the device will launch with Windows 10 but will be ready to upgrade to Windows 11 when it becomes available later this year.
