The HP Pavilion 15 2020 model is a good entry-level gaming laptop with a redesigned cooling system that performs well for its price. The aesthetic design is cohesive and consistent, but the hinge is still slightly wobbly. The plastic build feels sturdy and the keyboard is great for both gaming and typing. The touchpad, display, and speakers are mediocre, but the IO is a plus with an SD card slot, USB-C, Ethernet port, HDMI, and three USB-A ports. The battery life is good for a gaming laptop. The machine sacrifices performance for cool temperatures, but user-controlled fan speed adjustment would be a welcome improvement.
