HP Pavilion Gaming 15-Ec0026AX review: Affordable Gaming Laptop

If you are in the market for a gaming laptop there are some of the popular choices come from Asus, MSI. Acer and Dell's Alienware. All brands are giving many options in the various price range. However, HP also introduced the gaming laptop from the last few years with its OMEN series and Pavilion gaming series of laptops.


HP Pavilion Gaming 15-Ec0026AX is one of the affordable gaming laptops launched by HP. When we talk about the Laptop Design, It comes in the shadow black color which looks amazing. Rather than going for an all-flashy design with multiple RGB lighting zones and wild stickers, HP has gone for the stealth approach with the design of the Pavilion Gaming 15-Ec0026AX laptop. The all-metal body wears a matte black paint and HP has used a glossy violet theme on its logo to suggest its gaming intentions. Laptop weight is only 2.19 Kg which makes it ideal for gaming on the move.

It has a 15.6-inch full HD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. The screen produces bright and vivid colors with wide viewing angles and high contrasts. Hence, whether you are playing games or watching movies, it is always a treat. When it comes to performance, all gaming laptops mostly deliver well on but it depends on how a manufacturer tunes to get the best out of the given hardware. HP has worked well on the thermal management system and that assures you are getting top-notch performance from the given hardware. HP Pavilion Gaming 15-Ec0026AX comes with AMD-Rayzen 5-350-H Quad-core processor up to 2.3 GHz base clock speed, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD along with 1TB HDD, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 3GB GDDR5 graphics. HP claimed that It has up to 8-hour battery life

The only negative point is that its speakers aren't very loud and at best, are good enough for YouTube binge sessions. That said, most gamers either plug in headphones or external speakers for the better experience even on more expensive laptops Overall view on this laptop after considering all the specifications is it will be one of the best gaming laptop in the market at this price. For a gaming laptop, the performance is most important in its category along with a great display and good battery life.
