The HP Pavilion Gaming 16 knows that sometimes a 15-inch laptop is a little too small, and a 17-inch laptop can be a lot too big.Â As its name suggests, the Pavilion Gaming 16 splits the difference, building itself around the uncommon 16.1-inch diagonal screen size.
Announced Tuesday and available immediately for a starting price of $800, HP said the Pavilion Gaming 16 isn’t much bigger than theÂ typical 15-inch laptop. However, that extra inch of diagonal display offers up to 7 percent more screen real estate than a typical 15-inch laptop.
It’s a pretty nice screen, too. The IPS panel offers up to 144Hz refresh rates and up to 300 nits of brightness.Â Â
