Design, Display, and Keyboard

HP Pavilion 15-eg2025nr: performance
The HP Pavilion 15-eg2025nr sports a high-end design consisting of a solid and sleek silver aluminum chassis complemented with the chrome-plated HP logo on the lid. Measuring just 0.7 inches in thickness and weighing 3.86 pounds, this laptop was made for you to carry it in your backpack whenever you need to.

As for the display, it features a Full HD 15.6-inch screen within a pleasingly thin bezel to keep you focused on your day-to-day tasks. Also, its IPS technology allows you to share your favorite movies with your friends and relatives, thanks to its wider viewing angles and color gamut coverage. Still, if you prefer a more prominent display, you can take a look at the 17.3-inch model HP 17-cn0025nr we reviewed recently.

Even though it isn't backlit, the keyboard is ample and comfortable enough to type on during your daily sessions providing decent key travel and a nice feeling. The multi-gesture touchpad is not only well-sized but also responsive when it comes to navigating throughout the Windows 11 user interface.

The HP Pavilion 15-eg2025nr boasts a high-end low-power 12th-Gen Intel Core i7-1255U powered by 10 cores, 12 threads, and 12 MB of SmartCache memory which offers more than adequate performance to keep up with your everyday work or schoolwork if you're a student.

Also, it has 16 GB of RAM, which means you can handle many tasks without hiccups, including web surfing, programming, virtualization, video editing, spreadsheet editing, video calling, and checking e-mail. 

Overall, its powerful CPU combined with this amount of RAM makes it the perfect option for power users who don't want their laptop to crash every time they have dozens of tabs open at a time.

Although it doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, this model packs an integrated GPU (Intel Iris Xe Graphics) perfect for enjoying 4K content at 60 Hz using an external 4K monitor since its screen doesn't support that resolution. Also, it allows you to play some non-demanding games with decent performance.

As for storage, it comes with a 512 GB M.2 SSD drive, which benefits you with up to 15x faster writing/reading speeds compared to a traditional hard drive (HDD) while giving you the space you need for your personal data and multimedia content.

However, if you are looking specifically for a 1 TB SSD laptop, you might consider the Dell Inspiron 14 Plus 7420 equipped with a 12th-Gen 14-Core Intel Core i7 processor and a stunning 14-inch 2.2K display.

Connectivity and Extras

HP has decided not to skimp when it comes to ports and connections. Which is rare on high-end notebooks that seem to shy away from having ports.

Specifically, this laptop holds an HDMI 2.1 port allowing you to enjoy 4K content at 120 Hz on external monitors. It also features two USB-A 3.2 ports, a single USB-C 3.2 port, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. 

There's also a fingerprint reader and a built-in HD webcam. Both big bonuses to consider.

Furthermore, its wireless connections come via Bluetooth 5.2 and more importantly, Wi-Fi 6, which offers a more significant channel width, faster download speeds, and better battery life compared to its predecessor, Wi-Fi 5.

And in case you didn't know, Wi-Fi standards have new names since a few years ago – the previously known Wi-Fi 802.11ax is now Wi-Fi 6, while the Wi-Fi 802.11ac protocol corresponds to Wi-Fi 5.

Battery Life

Broadly speaking, the battery life of the HP Pavilion 15-eg2025nr promises not to disappoint you as it offers almost 8 hours in an office work environment with the screen's brightness maxed at 150 nits. 

However, in more realistic scenarios, it can last around 6-7 hours of mixed usage. This is an important note because generally, battery claims are made without taking into account standard user behavior, with the numbers existing in a vacuum of sorts. That's why we always have to consider the battery claims with a grain of salt and shave off 20-25% to get a more realistic number. 

Furthermore, as with most HP laptops, you get HP fast charging technology which promises to charge the battery up to 50% of its capacity in just 45 minutes, meaning you would get roughly an additional three hours worth of juice with a quick charge like that. 

Verdict: Should you buy it?

The HP Pavilion 15-eg2025nr is a well-built laptop that you can't go wrong with, thanks to its stylish and easy-to-carry design, powerful hardware, balanced connectivity options, and an FHD screen with stunning visuals.

Also, it's an excellent choice for those looking for a laptop that offers the most bang for your buck, with the added benefit of a fast processor, speedy storage, more than enough RAM for most users, and a thin-bezel display, as well as a fairly respectable battery life.

Maybe adding an Ethernet port and SD card reader would make it the perfect laptop for the average power user, but these features can be added easily without spending too much money on them through the addition of a dongle if that's something you need.
