Available in Pale Rose Gold, Warm Gold, Ceramic White, and Natural Silver, this is the first Pavilion laptop with 90% screen-to-body-ratio – allowing Gen Zs to see more content easily.[ii]

The Pavilion Aero 13 is expected to be upgradeable to Windows 11 later this year,[iii] and is powered by up to the latest AMD Ryzen™ 7 5800U Mobile Processor with AMD Radeon™ Graphics for fast responsiveness when working or browsing, and smooth details while watching movies.[iv] Wi-Fi 6[v] and up to 10.5 hours of battery life[vi] allow for fast and reliable wireless connectivity and power at home or on the go.

Browse in the sunlight with 400 nits of brightness[viii], and experience vibrant images when surfing the web and streaming videos with 100% sRGB for a wider color palette.[ix]
