HP Pavilion Plus 14 laptop review: OLED, 90 Hz, and 12th gen Core H

Thinnest Pavilion thus far. The “Plus” doesn’t mean plus-size. HP’s latest Pavilion laptop adds a host of high-end features and performance upgrades that could have easily belonged to an Envy or Spectre model. Does the Pavilion Plus 14 cut any corners?

The HP Pavilion Plus 14 is the “Pro” model to the standard Pavilion 14. It carries higher-end options such as Core H-series CPUs and an OLED display to contrast the typical Core U-series and IPS options of the standard Pavilion 14.

Our test unit in review comes with the Core i7-12700H CPU, integrated Iris Xe graphics, and a 90 Hz 16:10 1800p OLED display for approximately $850 USD retail. Other SKUs are available as well as shown by the table below. The Pavilion Plus 14 competes with other midrange or higher 14-inch Ultrabooks like the Asus VivoBook Pro 14, Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro, or the MSI Modern 14 series.
