Display & More
The interesting fact about this light laptop is that it has a Ryzen processor. A full spec sheet hasn’t been provided by HP yet. However, This being HP’s very first consumer laptop has a 13.3-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Not to mention the display has a 2.5K resolution with 10% more space at the top of the screen.
“Today’s consumers are looking for a device that is both powerful and incredibly lightweight to keep up with their increasingly mobile lifestyles.”

The laptop offers a decent 90% screen-to-body ratio. The bezels are noticeably shrunk to give it a professional look. The screen can go up to 400 nits which is a decent brightness even for outside use as well.
Build & Performance
In case you haven’t notice, what makes this laptop so light is the magnesium-aluminum alloy build. You see, Aluminum is light but to make the laptop lightweight this alloy has been used. The HP Pavilion Aero 13 comes with Ceramic White, Natural Silver, Warm Gold, and Pale Rose Gold colors to choose from.
Speaking of the processor again, Ryzen seems more efficient and effective than Intel chips these days. As the laptop won’t be taking too much load so lesser heavy-duty cooling works fine. As a result, the Ryzen 5000 series processor gives manufacturers the opportunity to go for a thinner and slimmer system.
