HP wants to give you some green—in the form of its updated Pavilion gaming notebooks, anyway. These laptops are powered by Intel Skylake CPUs and GeForce GTX 950M graphics. The refreshed Pavilions come dressed with green backlit keyboards and an equally retina-searing honeycomb motif on the palm rest—a finish HP describes as a "reptilian pattern."
In addition to the Skylake CPUs and GeForce graphics, buyers get the option of either an "HD display" (we're guessing 1366x768 TN) or a 1080p IPS unit. HP also offers up to 16GB of RAM. Storage options range from a good old mechanical hard drive to an SSHD or a hard drive and 128GB SSD combo.
The base Pavilion is good for 8.2 hours of battery life, so we'd expect a little less with the more powerful configurations. Still, that's nothing to sneer at considering it's a machine targeted at gaming. The notebook is 1.1" thick (or 29 mm), and weighs 5.46 lbs (2.5 kg) with the standard configuration. HP says this laptop will be available starting November 8 for $900 and up.
