HP’s consumer PCs made with ocean-bound plastics build on company’s sustainability commitment

HP has announced updates to its Pavilion line-up that show the company’s progress towards a more sustainable future.

The HP Pavilion 13, HP Pavilion 14 and HP Pavilion 15 laptops are the company’s first consumer notebooks using post-consumer-recycled and ocean-bound plastics in the construction of the speaker housing. Its use in these devices is estimated to keep approximately 92,000 plastic bottles out of the oceans and landfills [1]. The outer boxes and fiber cushions used in packaging the new devices are also 100% sustainably sourced and recyclable.

These are also the first consumer laptops available from HP to feature 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics.

For those making regular Skype and Teams calls, the HP Wide Vision Camera and dual array mics will help make the experience better. The devices are Microsoft HDR streaming capable with HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) codec preinstalled on UHD and FHD panels.

This year’s Pavilions sport improved screen-to-body ratios (STBR) and x/y dimensions across all three devices – which means a smaller overall footprint with a larger screen.

Other features include accelerated access to files and better storage performance. With pure SSD, they can get additional Microsoft OneDrive Storage.

Easily power through the day on the newest Pavilion laptops, with up to 8.5 hours of battery life on the Pavilion 13, and up to 8.75 hours on the Pavilion 14 and Pavilion 15 [2].

The HDMI 2.0 port easily connects an external 5K monitor, and a versatile SuperSpeed USB-C port supports data, display and power delivery. With Wi-Fi 6, the Pavilion PCs enable up to four times faster maximum Wi-Fi speeds and 75% lower latency.

For your security concerns, these laptops feature an optional fingerprint reader along with Windows Defender. For those who want a digital assistant, Cortana is available on all three devices.
