|Power and performance for your active life. It's never been easier to do more, go anywhere and have more fun. The HP Pavilion dv7 makes it possible, with powerful PC-like performance, multimedia support and a full range of built-in features packed into a stylishly design chassis.|
This seems to be a very good packaged laptop. It has a lot of good features including Bluetooth. I would recommend this for anyone who was needing a good laptop for the money.
An excellent machine for the price3/29/2013
This machine was very low priced for the performance which is excellent for both cpu and graphics. It is loaded with nearly every feature imaginable, except for a 7200 rpm or better yet a solid state drive. The only nits I have is that HP software often duplicates the function of the original Microsoft OS built-ins at best and often doesn't work as well. Also, a prior dv7 I had came with a laser etched metal shell but this one has black plastic.
received in two days working perfectly3/25/2013
everything was as advertised. the screen is beautiful,
After a week of researching refurbished laptops, I found this. It was $450 at the time. I made the back up disks first thing and reloaded the OS, there was an administrator account I did not have a password for(probably from the refurbisher). It is working flawlessly so far. It looks new, the screen is big and has a beautiful picture, came with a 8550mAh extended HP battery, is reasonably fast. It can deal with Starcraft II on low setting very well. It has a full number key pad and enough ports for most needs. I don't think a better buy for a 17.3" machine is going to be easy to find. An Intel machine would have been faster, but their on chip video is lagging behind AMD's and you pay a premium price for the Intel name.
