Although we didn't review this laptop, sister site Laptop Mag tested the Lenovo Legion 5i which sports the same i5-10300H CPU/8GB RAM combo. The laptop's Geekbench 5.0 synthetic benchmark test score surpassed the category average.

We expect the Pavilion Gaming Laptop 16's 10th Gen Intel Core H-series processor to be on par with its performance. 

Design-wise, the HP Pavilion has a plain black lid accented with a green HP logo and a matching plain black deck and "acid" green back-lit keyboard. Bang & Olufsen-tuned dual speakers provide enhanced gaming sound.

For a 16-inch laptop, the HP Pavilion 16 is pretty light. At 5.2 pounds and 14.6 x 10.3 x 0.9 inches, it's lighter than the Lenovo Legion 5i, Dell G3 15 and HP Omen 15 (5.4 pounds each). 

So if you're in the market for a gaming PC that doesn't sacrifice performance for price, the HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 16 is a solid investment.
