1. Remove the bottom plate

As usual, HP is playing the find the screw game, this time trying to hide four Phillips-head screws under the two rubber feet. In addition to that, undo the other two, which are visible, and pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool.

2. Battery

Interestingly, this laptop is equipped with a 41Wh battery pack, which is smaller than that found on the 14-inch Pavilion.

3. Мemory and storage

Thankfully, there are two RAM SODIMM slots, which should be able to hold a total of 32GB of memory in dual-channel mode. Additionally, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot for storage upgrades.

4. Cooling system

As for the cooling, there are two heat pipes, cooling both the CPU and the GPU. Luckily, the heat spreader is huge, and there are two fans blowing at it, which should greatly improve the thermal efficiency of the solution.

HP Pavilion 15 (15-eh0000, eh1000, eh2000, eg0000, eg1000, eg2000) in-depth review

Traditionally, the Pavilion series are some of the best value notebooks HP produces. However, from time to time they produce some flops. We really hope that this year's device won't be. Now, there are two iterations that HP currently offers - the Pavilion 15 (15-eh0000), and the (15-eg0000) which we have today. They differ in the chipset they use, as the former is built on an AMD base, while the latter features the Tiger Lake chips from Intel.Now, this laptop should be a pretty decent catch for students, and people using their device for daily tasks, as sending mail, browsing the Web, and[...]


  • Thin and light predominantly aluminum design
  • Tige Lake processors combined with decent low-voltage GPU solutions
  • 2x RAM SODIMM slots + 1x M.2 PCIe x4 slot


  • Uses aggressive PWM for brightness adjustment up to 80 nits (our Health-Guard profile fixes the issue) (NCP0040)
  • Poor color coverage (NCP0040)
  • The tiny battery won't be enough for intensive workloads
