Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv5-2070us
Source: PC Mag
Don't let its flashy paint job fool you. Underneath its striking chassis, the HP Pavilion dv5-2070us ($849.98 list) is a laptop that's meant to be a day-to-day workhorse. Equipped with an Intel Core i3 processor and a spacious 500GB hard drive, this laptop, available from Staples, doesn't particularly stand out in one area but does a lot of things pretty well. But since HP is marketing this as an entertainment laptop, the lack of a Blu-ray player is disappointing; more troubling is its touchpad issues.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
