While mobiles seem to accommodate what seems like a return to heavy weights, in laptops the tendency is usually to go to less weight and volume. In this line is the new HP Pavilion Aero 13, a laptop that was born with the accolade of being a record featherweight.

Own record, yes, because it is about the lightest laptop ever presented by the brand. A direct rival of the LG Gram, especially the model that is around the kilogram. Although the Aero 13 also stands out for some of its components.

The track that leaves us wanting

HP says that yes, the Pavilion Aero 13 is the lightest laptop they have ever introduced. But when we look for the grams we are left in doubt as to whether or not it beats the LG Gram of 999 grams, because they do not specify beyond “less than 1 kilogram”.

Therefore, at least in terms of holding and carrying it, it would be in the line of the HP Elite Dragonfly, also below the kilogram. Although in this case the new Pavilion series laptops are bathed in color with shades of pink, green, blue and a more classic silver (well, the brand says that Pale Rose Gold, Warm Gold, Ceramic White Y Natural Silver, but our eyes what we described to you).

The chassis is constructed entirely of aluminum and magnesium, combining it with parts made with recycled plastic from bottles from the ocean, as they explain. The screen occupies, according to HP, 90% of the front, being 13.3 inches with 2.5K resolution, 16:10 and a maximum brightness of 400 nits.

This is what nits are for: comparison of mobile screens in full summer sun

Up to 10.5 hours of autonomy

Inside it has AMD 5000 series processors, specifically the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U, and 8 GB of RAM, with a 512 GB SSD. It has WiFi 6 support and eye, will be able to upgrade to Windows 11 next year, something that should be emphasized by the issue of minimum requirements, which is still around today (days after its presentation).

The brand promises that the laptop gives up 10 and a half hours of autonomy, so it will be necessary to see if it complies in this regard. It has a microphone and headphone port and a webcam on the front frame.
