HP Pavilion Aero 13 review: Ultralight, ultrapowerful?


The HP Pavilion Aero 13 is an extremely lightweight laptop that punches above its budget classification.

“The HP Pavilion Aero 13 is as powerful as it is lightweight.”

HP Pavilion Aero Review


Aggressively priced for the set of specs ; Powerful eight-core Ryzen 7 CPU ; Handsome and ultralight metal chassis in choice of four colors ; HDMI, USB-A, and USB-C ports

No touch screen available ; Test configuration's keyboard not backlit (though a $20 option) ; No SD or microSD card slot

Weighing just 2.2 pounds, HP's Pavilion Aero is the fastest and fanciest laptop to wear the company's consumer brand.

HP Pavilion Aero 13 review: budget Envy


The Pavilion line moves up.

Powerhouse eight-core processor ; Unbelievably light ; Strong battery life ; Bright 16:10 display

Ships with bloatware ; Bad audio ; Backlit keyboard costs extra

The Pavilion Aero 13 is a powerful, light laptop with a standout screen and battery life. While nominally a member of HP’s budget Pavilion line, it feels like using a midrange Envy, and it’s priced like one, too.

HP Pavilion Aero 13: Light on price and weight, heavy on style and power


You won't find more power from a lighter laptop at its price than the HP Pavilion Aero 13, a 2.1-pound charmer based on AMD's stellar Ryzen 7 5800U CPU.

Incredibly light. ; Strong application and multimedia performance. ; 16:10 display feels roomy. ; Comfortable keyboard.

Small battery, lackluster battery life. ; Barrel charger feels antiquated. ; Keyboard backlighting costs extra.

Beyond being incredibly light and eminently portable, the HP Pavilion Aero 13 scores points for still providing a roomy display and comfortable keyboard in such a compact package. A 13.3-inch laptop can feel cramped with a 16:9 aspect ratio but when...

Speedy AMD Ryzen chips ; Bright, vivid 13.3-inch display ; Ultra-lightweight chassis ; Good battery life ; Generous variety of ports ; Exceptional value

Anonymous styling ; Bloatware everywhere ; Plastic touchpad ; Poor webcam

HP Pavilion Aero 13 review: 2.2 pound notebook with Ryzen 5000U for $750 and up - Liliputing


The HP Pavilion Aero 13 is a laptop that delivers excellent all-around performance, decent battery life in a surprisingly compact and affordable package. Weighing just under 2.2 pounds, the HP Pavilion Aero has a starting price of $750 .

With the Pavilion Aero 13, HP has broken the mold. It’s a Pavilion-branded laptop with the sort of features and design that you’d normally associated with an Envy or Spectre.

HP Pavilion Aero 13 review - an excellent budget ultrabook (AMD Ryzen)


Many years ago, started due to my loathing of the chunky and heavy notebooks mostly available around 2010, and while we cover laptops

compact and sub 1 kilo in weight, yet still built very well ; balanced IPS 16:10 matte screen ; good inputs and IO ; snappy with everyday use and multitasking ; good thermals and quiet fan with daily use and demanding loads ; competitively priced for...

no IR camera or touchscreen option ; not the most powerful Ryzen implementation ; audio isn't much ; 43 Wh battery and rather short runtimes

HP Pavilion Aero 13 review: Light enough to be your constant companion

Review: HP's ultra-light Pavilion Aero 13 with AMD is also ultra-excellent


With a starting price just below $700 (on sale) and weighing just 2 pounds, the new HP Pavilion Aero 13 is one excellent-looking device. It's also backed up by powerful AMD Ryzen 5000 Mobile CPUs with an incredible 16:10 display making this laptop our...

Excellent CPU performance ; Super light ; Outstanding design ; Very good keyboard, trackpad, and display

Radeon GPU is weak ; Webcam is just OK ; Some bloatware

Bottom line: Weighing around 2 pounds, the HP Pavilion Aero 13 is the best sub-$1,000 laptop you can buy right now. With an excellent display, keyboard, audio, and AMD Ryzen performance, it's a premium laptop that is super affordable.
