Laptop Review: HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H and Nvidia GTX 1650 Mobilewith 4 GB VRAM and AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 (4000/5000 Series). Other key specs include 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD, 256GB SSD. The Display here is a 15.6 Inch 144Hz FHD (1920 x 1080) Panel.

Overall Performance

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H which is slightly more powerful than the 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+256GB SSD should be enough for most users which can also be upgraded.

Design and Ports

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX has a black plastic chassis with a smooth finish and an angular design. The hinge also has an angular design and can be opened with one hand to a maximum angle of 130 degrees however, is a fingerprint magnet. In terms of looks, it has a minimalist look and you won’t feel uncomfortable taking it out in a professional setting. The speaker grill sits above the keyboard with hexagonal patterns which is a nice touch. 

Ports: 

The port selection here is nothing special but it’s nice to have an SD card slot. 

1x USB 3.0 (Type C) | 1x USB 3.0 (Type-A) | 1x USB 2.0 (Type A) | HDMI | Rj- 45 Ethernet Jack | SD Card Reader | 3.5 mm Combo Audio Jack

Keyboard and Trackpad

The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX  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.
