The HP Pavilion Aero 13 released in 2021 is proof that a lightweight laptop with fast performance can be obtained at a price of tens of millions of rupiah. This laptop that has a 13-inch screen weighs less than 1 kilogram. Exactly about 960 grams.
This makes the HP Pavilion Aero 13 the lightest consumer- class laptop from HP today.
To accommodate its compact dimensions, the row of Function or Fn keys on the top side of the keyboard is designed to be slightly smaller than most 13-inch laptops.
However, the other keyboard keys are still quite large standard size. So you will be able to type on your laptop for a long time comfortably.
The completeness of the port is quite standard, we still don’t like the design of the HP laptop’s USB port that must be pushed down when connecting a flash disk or USB cable. In addition to potentially breaking, this small USB port can be a bit difficult for some types of USB devices.
The number of ports on this laptop is also quite limited, there are only 2 USB Type-A ports and 1 USB Type-C port.

For games that are not too heavy, this laptop is still able to run as long as it is set at a low graphics level. For example for games like Valorant, which can be played quite smoothly at a frame rate of 60 fps. Legendary games like DOTA 2 are also still comfortable to play on low settings , although sometimes you see frame drops in some situations.
The screen quality of the HP Pavilion Aero 13 is also worthy of thumbs up. With a 100% sRGB color gamut, color reproduction is accurate for design purposes, photo editing and multimedia.
