Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-1004ea

80% HP Pavilion dv7-1004ea review
Source: Techradar English
A flawless mix of style, usability and features from this great media centre. HP is one the world's largest laptop manufacturers, with a comprehensive range of machines available. Its Pavilion brand targets the consumer market, and the dv7-1004ea (£831 inc. VAT) is a high powered and affordable media and gaming laptop that excels on many levels. Due to its large 17-inch screen, the chassis weighs 3.6kg. It is one of the biggest and heaviest laptops around, and a true desktop replacement. Its 232-minute battery life is excellent, however, so you can easily work on the move if the weight doesn't put you off. The flawless mix of style, performance and features make the HP Pavilion dv7- 1004ea an excellent entry-level media centre. The reflective screen is not ideal in bright conditions, but there are few better laptops available at this price.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT: Successor of the 8600M GT and because of the smaller 65nm production process the card is higher clocked (and therefore faster) with the same current consumption.Furthermore, it features an improved video processor (VP3) and HybridPower to save current (in conjunction with the 9100M G).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P7350:

Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.

17.0": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.5 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
