The HP Pavilion 15t 6WU81AV_1 (2019) is a mid-range 15.6-inch Windows notebook. As a configurable laptop model on the official HP Store, the 15t 6WU81AV_1 offers very decent component options.
The most basic display option is a low-end HD TN panel with optional touch input support, but you can upgrade it to a sharper and wide viewing angle Full HD IPS touch-screen.
Computing components packed in a 0.7″ slim plastic chassis are excellent. Unlike typical mid-tier notebooks with the mid-range Intel Core i3 and i5 processor options, the HP Pavilion 15t 6WU81AV_1 is available only with the higher-end i7-1065G7 from the 2019 10th Gen Intel Core family. The processor is near the top in test charts and provides performance similar to high-end processors you can find in gaming and workstation class laptops. Therefore, it is excellent for all home and office tasks and additionally provides decent speed for heavier computing duties like video editing. Furthermore, HP has ditched traditionally slow hard drive storage in favor of fast solid state drives. The laptop comes with up to 1TB of solid state drive storage, with optional Intel Optane memory for further data storing speed improvement. The basic RAM size is 8GB, which is enough for worry-free multitasking and you can also choose even larger 12GB or 16GB RAM.
As for gaming, the HP Pavilion 15t 6WU81AV_1 relies on either the Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics of the Core i7-1065G7 processor or on the dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX250 2GB video card. They aren’t designed for hard-core gaming, but they are able to run decently smooth lighter PC games and some heavier games on low detail settings. The Iris Plus is noticeably faster than the more widely adopted Intel UHD series integrated graphics solutions of mid-range Intel Core processors. The GeForce MX250 2GB option provides additional gaming performance improvement, but it’s still below the gaming-class video cards from the GeForce GTX series.
The battery inside the laptop has a capacity of 41 WHr, which is on the lower side.
Keyboard backlight on the Pavilion 15t 6WU81AV_1 is optional.
Usual starting price: around 530 USD* as of November 27, 2019.
