HP has unveiled a new Pavilion PC portfolio featuring new convertibles and notebooks with sleek designs and more power. Targeted at millennials among other audience segments, the new portfolio lets customers reflect their sense of style at a price that delivers value.

“Some customers want thin and light PCs for on the go while other customers want power and performance to create and store,” said Lionel Chng, Managing Director, HP Inc. Singapore. “HP’s redesigned Pavilion PCs offer affordability and a variety of options for customers to get the functionality they need in a PC packed with style and personality.”

The new HP Pavilion PCs are some of the lightest mainstream laptops in the market. They feature updated designs with more colour options. Audio custom-tuned by experts at B&O PLAY and vibrant displays, including Full HD1 IPS options, provide an immersive computing experience. The new lineup also features the latest Intel processors and graphics.

They feature Prismatic Lithium ion battery cells to maintain long battery life and offers HP Fast Charge2, which can charge the PC up to 90% in 90 minutes when powered off.
