HP Pavilion 15 vs Asus VivoBook 15 – Deep Comparison with Facts

Comparison between Asus Vivo-Book 15 (X512) vs HP Pavilion Gaming 15 Laptops. The comparison between these Laptops is based on Quick Specs, Basic Information, Features, Technical Specifications, and Other Basic Features.

DESIGN & BUILD:

HP Pavilion 15

The HP Pavilion 15 is a compact 15 inches High Definition laptop designed for general purpose use. It has a US layout designed silver color keyboard with a number pad.

It does not have a backlight keyboard. It could be more effective if it were the backlight on this keyboard. There is enough distance between each key so that smoothly you can type and hopefully it will give you a good work experience. It has a wide multi-touch trackpad which is a little big compared to the smile-shaped key model.

Asus Vivo-book 15 X512

This laptop has a matte finish on top. It is pretty sleek in design and little on the heavier side.

Asus Vivo-book does not have anything fancy in terms of design except that ergo hinge. The ergo lift hinge is a nice feature. The top and bottom panel of the laptop has a smooth matte finish which thankfully is not a fingerprint magnet.

The overall construction is solid, and the plastic chassis is reasonably robust. However, it’s quite heavy at 1.75 KGs, and the footprint is reasonably large. So, it’s not going to fit in smaller backpacks or bags.

DISPLAY QUALITY:

HP Pavilion 15

With its IPS technology, the screen produces colors more faithfully than the average and ensures comfortable viewing angles horizontally or vertically.

Moreover, it lends itself well to the display of high definition content, particularly to videos, due to precise Full HD definition. In addition, it is a sixteen to nine format ratio anti-reflective screen.

Asus Vivo-book 15 X512

The major disappointment of this laptop is the screen. It has a frameless four-sided Nano edge display with an ultra-slim 5.7 mm bezel giving an amazing 88% screen-to-body ratio.

The full HD resolution is not the problem, and nor is the matte finish; the problem is that the anti-glare IPS screen colors are washed out.

I found reading websites and watching videos underwhelming, and pushing the screen to full brightness did not help. Skin tones sometimes seem greenish, and even the brightest colors appear dull.

The screen also suffers from poor viewing angles. The display gets completely washed out when looking from the top, bottom, or sides.

Talking about display size, Both Laptops feature a screen size of 15.6. Asus Vivo-Book 15 X512FL laptop has LED Screen type whereas HP Pavilion 15-ec0062AX Gaming Laptop has Full HD WLED Backlit IPS Narrow Bezel Display (250 nits Brightness, 141 Pixels Per Inch, 60 Hz Refresh Rate, 45% Color Gamut, 82.29% Screen to Body Ratio) Screen type.

It also has a dedicated graphics card which is GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce MX250 with optimist technology and four gigabytes.

It has an HP wide vision HD webcam with an integrated dual array digital microphone seated in the middle of the display’s upper bezel. This camera, in my opinion, is not good but you can use this for video conferences or chatting.

Asus Vivo-book 15 X512

This Asus Vivo-book X512 is equipped with an Intel processor with NVIDIA MX230 graphics. In addition, it has plenty of RAM and storage of up to 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD with Intel Optane memory in storage.

The touchpad and the fingerprint sensor are good, especially the fingerprint sensor. It will let you log in within three seconds, which is fast. We didn’t face any issues with the fingerprint sensor. The touchpad is made of plastic and has precision windows drivers. It handled Windows 10 gestures quite nicely.

The Vivo-book is equipped with a full-size keyboard which includes a Numpad on the right side. The keyboard has much flex to it, making it a heavy-handed typist, while the keyboard action is very soft with no noticeable flick.

It’s not problematic to use, but it isn’t very pleasant compared to other high-end keyboards. The keyboard is not backlit.

PERFORMANCE:

HP Pavilion 15

It relies on a good amount of RAM of 8 gigabytes inside of this laptop. It has two Ram slots, but both can fill up by 4 GB RAM so that you can’t extend the RAM.

In addition, it has 512 gigabytes PCIe NVMe SSD storage. This Ultrabook is much more responsive and fluid than if it were equated with a hard drive.

Compared to the SSD is much faster, will be more energy-efficient, and more impact resistant for the above system configuration. Easily, you can use this laptop with high-end fast work like graphic design, 3D animation, video rendering, or high-end gaming.

The processor is named Intel Core i7, and the codename is Ice Lake, and the max TDP is 15 watts, technology ten nanometers. HP 86C2 motherboard used in this laptop.

uggling day-to-day tasks is a breeze for this laptop. Chrome, light photo editing, casual gaming, the performance is really good. However, if you’re a gamer and think of buying this laptop, don’t do that anyway.

It runs on an old MX230 processor with 2GB GDDR5 video RAM. You can do gaming on low to medium settings at best, but as soon as you crank up the graphics, the game will lag and fluctuate, and the performance won’t be smooth.

WHICH TO BUY?

There are many things which I like about this Vivo-book x512. It’s an ergo lift feature, narrow bezel, good performance, and solid battery life, but Asus has cut corners when it comes to the screen and the keyboard, the main components of any laptop. The screen is not vibrant enough, and the keyboard has a sponge-like feel to it.

If you are after a laptop or a bit of relaxing and media viewing and two presentations, you might want to look elsewhere.

If you can ignore the shortcomings, this laptop has a good price to performance ratio. Considering every feature, I think Pavilion 15 will be better for normal office works and some light gaming.
