Intro

When we think of gaming hardware, we tend to think of the high-end names–Alienware, Razer, MSI, ASUS ROG, HP’s own Omen and even up-and-coming brands like Acer’s Predator and Lenovo’s Gaming series. It’s no secret that gaming costs money. At most times… a lot of money.

But what if you’re a casual gamer who doesn’t need a pro-level gaming rig? What if all you want to do is occasionally play Overwatch or a sprinking of Dota 2? An Alienware desktop or a Razer Blade Pro notebook would be nice to have for the money, but would be absolute overkill.

Well, this is exactly the premise of the HP Pavilion Gaming Notebook, a 15-inch gaming notebook that delivers where it counts and doesn’t break the bank in the process.

It’s not going to win against a Razer in terms of looks, nor will it match the performance of more hardcore set-ups. If you’re on a budget though, this baby is quite a bargain.

You can’t deny that the HP Pavilion Gaming Notebook packs incredible value. For less than MYR3,500 you’ll be getting a well-specced mobile gaming rig that will play most of today’s games without complaint. There are some cut corners, but overall delivers where it matters without burning a hole in your pocket.
