HP Pavilion Plus (14-eh0097nr) Review: A Powerful, Shiny OLED Portable


Recommended Posts


A traditional laptop for professionals should ideally be affordable, slim, and able to churn through powerful productivity tasks. The HP Pavilion Plus (14-eh0097nr) ticks those boxes in all the ways that matter. Its traditional design may be a bit boring, but the Pavilion is packed with a 12th Generation Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, a beautiful 90 Hz OLED display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, and all the ports you could ask for in a slim package. 

With specs like these at an enticing price of $999.99, the HP Pavilion Plus 14 could make our best ultrabooks and premium laptops list. However, sub-par battery life could be a deal-breaker for some.


The HP Pavilion Plus 14 has a generic silver color scheme with polished, circular branding in the center lid of the chassis. The streamlined design has a thin hinge attached to a bar in the back that says Pavillion on it. Beneath the laptop are two horizontal feet and two cutout speakers on either side. When you open up the lid to reveal the deck, there’s more branding on the left palm rest and a fingerprint scanner on the right. The keycaps are a matching silver, with gray letters that are white when the backlight shines through. The trackpad follows suit with silver borders and a gray center.

The left side of the Pavilion Plus 14 houses a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-A port, and a MicroSD reader. Meanwhile, the right side holds another USB Type-A port, two USB Type-C ports (with DisplayPort and Power Delivery capabilities), and an HDMI 2.1 port.


Although the Pavillion Plus 14 is the slimmest Pavillion from HP yet, its dimensions and weight of 12.34 x 8.83 x 0.72 inches and 3.09 pounds are still similar to competing laptops. The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon has a 12.32 x 8.44 x 0.59-inch footprint at 2.43 pounds. The Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1 comes in at 12.36 x 8.95 x 0.70-inches and 3.46 pounds, while the Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED measures 11.68 x 8.29 x 0.59 inches and 2.43 pounds. In short, the Lenovo and the Asus are about a half-pound heavier and slimmer.

The design of the HP Pavilion Plus 14 is a bit bland and generic, but clean; it’ll fit right in at the office. And despite its slim build, it fits in all the ports you’d expect to remain productive.
