The display here is the 60Hz FHD (1920x1080p) panel. Other specs include 8 GB RAM and a 1TB HDD.  This is a great laptop if you are a professional creator, engineer, or gaming this is a great laptop.

Keyboard and Trackpad

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1021AX has a chicklet style backlit keyboard. The keys have a clear actuation point with a little flex and you will have decent tying experience. The trackpad on the other hand has a smooth matte surface though it lacks a little precision.

Overall Performance

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1021AX is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H which is trades blows with 9th gen intel core i7 9750H. The 4600H should be able to handle most of your active workloads of Photo and Video editing or any other CPU-intensive task the only bottleneck here being the 8GB of RAM which you can easily upgrade. The GTX 1650, on the other hand, is an entry-level GPU with limited potential for GPU intensive tasks such as 3D rendering and Gaming. Now compared to the previous GTX 1650 is about 40 percent more powerful than GTX 1050ti and is about 15 percent slower when compared to GTX 1060.  The 1TB HDD of storage should be enough for an average user however for it is relatively slow and we recommend adding an additional storage, fortunately, HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1021AX  has plenty of options for upgradability.
