Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-4053cl
Source: PC Mag
When you see a laptop with a 17.3-inch widescreen, that's usually a tell-tale sign that it will stay fixed in one location and tethered to an outlet at all times, but the HP Pavilion dv7-4053cl ($829.99 list) is a desktop replacement laptop that refuses to go with the grain. The dv7-4053cl, sold at Costco, bundles a huge battery that delivered 7 hours of battery life in our tests, an encouraging sign for those who need a big screen laptop for the road. Furthermore, the included Blu-ray drive and quad-core AMD processor allows you to step into a world of high-def entertainment without breaking the bank. Just one thing, though: Make sure you turn off the multitouch gestures before surfing with the touchpad.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
N620: Mobile Dual-Core CPU based on the desktop Athlon II X2 due to the missing level 3 cache. Due to the fast clock speed, the N620 should be located in the upper mid range of laptop CPUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
