The HP Pavilion 15-bc008TX was launched on Flipkart’s Big Billion Days Sale, today. With its high-end specifications, the device is aimed at gamers. However, you may get confused by the appearance of the laptop. Gaming laptops always look flashy and mean, whereas the Pavilion looks pretty much like a regular office-going laptop. There is more to this, though.

As mentioned earlier, the laptop looks much like any other 15.6-inch Pavilion laptop from HP. It has the same rounded edges and has the new digital threading design across the keyboard deck.

It’s a beast on the inside, though. It has an Intel Core i7 HQ processor and a powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX960M GPU. It’ll run most games with ease, and you may have to tone down the graphics a bit to run the most resource intensive ones.

HP has used its typical island style keyboard. It’s good for typing, but gamers may find the key depression a little too light. It is backlit, though. 

On the other hand, the touchpad is big and quite smooth to operate. It also supports all Windows 10 gestures.

Above the keyboard is the speakers grille. The laptop is quite loud and music output is decent, but you’ll still need headphones for crisp audio.
