70% HP ENVY dv7 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
With the discontinuation of the ENVY 17 line, the ENVY dv7t-7200 is now at the top of performance charts for HP's notebook lineup. The dv7t-7200 doesn't quite have the design aesthetics or blow your mind performance capabilities we'd like it to have for a premier offering, but if you ignore that fact and focus more on the value proposition and features you get for the dollar the ENVY dv7t becomes quite appealing. If you take advantage of sale pricing and HP coupons you can often get the ENVY dv7t-7200 configured with an Intel Core i7, Nvidia 650M, full HD screen and 8GB of RAM for under $1,000. The precise configuration we have was found on sale last week for $599. Given that kind of pricing for a sturdily built laptop with top shelf components and the fact HP offers a 2-year standard warranty for this model, it's an attractive deal.

60% HP ENVY dv7-7250us 17.3-inch Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
HP's ENVY dv7-7250us continues the inevitable slide of a once premiere brand name. The system now reflects what the Pavilion dv7 models were last year. It is fine for someone looking for general performance for task such as desktop video work but it lacks the graphics capabilities of past revision by relying on the Intel graphics and a lower resolution display.

HP reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M: A mid-range GPU and the fastest GeForce GT as part of the 600M series

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.
