HP Pavilion Aero 13 2023 thin and light book: weighs less than 1kg and starts at $880

Hewlett-Packard previously announced the release of the Pavilion Aero 13 2023 edition laptop, a device crafted from a magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis, weighing less than 1kg. According to a report by Liliputing, this ultra-thin notebook has now hit the market. The base model, equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 7535U processor, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of storage, retails at $880. Consumers also have the option to purchase upgraded versions with an AMD Ryzen 7 7735U processor and expanded memory and storage.

HP first launched this product line in 2021. The new model for this year measures approximately 297.18 x 208.28 x 17.78 mm and weighs about 998.8g. The processor has been upgraded to the AMD Ryzen 7035 series, featuring Zen 3+ architecture cores, higher core frequencies, and integrated graphics based on the RDNA 2 architecture.

The Pavilion Aero 13 2023 edition laptop offers a choice between the AMD Ryzen 5 7535U or Ryzen 7 7735U, with the former having 6 cores and 12 threads, and the latter 8 cores and 16 threads. It boasts an IPS display, with an option of either 1920 x 1200 or 2560 x 1600 resolution, a brightness of 400 nits, and a 100% sRGB colour gamut. Memory options include 8GB or 16GB, and storage ranges from 256GB to 1TB. As the memory is soldered onto the PCB, users are only able to upgrade the storage themselves.

All versions support Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3, come with a built-in 43Wh battery, and are equipped with a 720P webcam with dual microphones, a B&O audio system, a backlit keyboard, a precision touchpad, and fingerprint recognition. In addition, the laptop provides a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port (supporting DisplayPort 1.4 Alt mode and PD charging), two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.1 interface, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
