In the notebook market, 15-inch notebooks are definitely best sellers and achieve the highest number of sales in the consumer range. Consumers looking for a smaller notebook, most likely purchase a 13-inch notebook. In contrast, the “intermediate size” of 14 inches is particularly common in the business range.
This leads us to our test model: With the Pavilion 14, HP has released a device of the above-mentioned “intermediate size”. It is supposed to supplement HP’s Pavilion multimedia series at the lower-end and even attract casual gamers by combining an ultrabook CPU with a dedicated Nvidia GPU. In addition, the dGPU sets it apart from the usual 13-inch notebooks, which most often lack this feature. The bundle of dedicated graphics card, Full HD IPS display, i5 processor and 256 GB SSD is available for 699 Euros (~$780).
There are few direct competitors, since, as already mentioned above, the 14-inch size is quite unusual in the consumer range, especially if you want a dedicated GPU. The Acer Aspire E5-474G as well as the Lenovo IdeaPad 510S-14ISK are direct competitors, but we have not reviewed them so far. Thus we compare the test model to their predecessors, the IdeaPad 500S-14ISK and the Acer Aspire E5-743G.
