December 29, 2021 is the date this HP Pavilion 14 was first available at Amazon.com and there aren’t many customer reviews online so far. You can purchase the same laptop computer withthe different RAM and SSD combinations of 8GB, 16GB or 32GB RAM & 256GB, 512GB, 1TB or 2TB SSD, depending on your memory and local storage space needs.  And please have a look at the Amazon product page for the current price differences.

The quarter 4 of 2020 release 11th generation dual core Intel i3-1115G4 processor (6MB Intel Smart Cache, 4 threads with hyperthreading) works at a base speed of 3.0GHz that goes up to 4.1GHz with the turbo boost function. The average CPU Passmark benchmark score is 6343 on the day of this review. And it is capable of handling your everyday as well as the more demanding tasks and offers an enhanced multitasking power. With the high bandwidth 16GB DDR4 SDRAM memory you shouldn’t have problems like delays or freezing when you have a few browser tabs and apps running simultaneously.

512GB Solid State Drive with up to 15 times faster performance than a conventional hard drive also offers a decent amount of local storage space if you have many multimedia and regular files to save. And you can choose a larger SSD storage of up to 2TB if you have a higher storage need for your videos or games. Windows 11 64-bit operating system comes pre-installed on this 2022 model laptop and has a rather user-friendly interface that reminds us of the Mac OS with the task bar in the center and the rounded corners of web pages etc. The typical TDP- Thermal Design Power is 15 watts and you can expect a battery life of up to 11.5 hours and comes with HP Fast Charge for 50% of charge in 45mins.

14-inch diagonal, 6.5mm micro-edge, anti-glare LED-backlit, HD touchscreen has the 1366 x 768-pixel resolution, 79% screen-to-body ratio, BrightView, 220 nits of brightness and 45% NTSC. The picture quality is obviously not as good as Full HD but reasonable for a mid-range priced laptop. And you won’t really notice the pixels as much on the smaller 14″ display. It comes with the Intel UHD Graphics for 11th gen Intel Processors and decent audio quality through the dual speakers. HP True Vision 720p HD webcam is not amazing but good for your Skype and Zoom chats as well as taking still photos and comes with the built-in dual array digital microphones.

Natural silver HP Pavilion 14 is lightweight and slim, weighing just 3.24 pounds and measuring 12.76L x 8.86W x 0.71H inches. It has a US English non-backlit full size keyboard that is comfortable enough to type on. There is no optical DVD drive and the connectivity options include the Realtek RTL8821CE-M 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth 4.2 combo, Multi-format SD media card reader, an HDMI 1.4b output, a headphone and microphone combo jack, 2 x SuperSpeed USB Type-A ports, a SuperSpeed USB Type-C port and an AC smart pin. Overall it is a decent value laptop with a modern design, touch display, good connectivity, an 11th generation powerful processor and large SSD and memory.
