Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-4055sf
Source: Digital Versus
The HP Pavilion dv7 series regularly evolves and continues to improve. This new model, the dv7-4055sf has an entry-level positioning. The new HP Pavilion dv7-4055sf sets its stall out by its ease-of-use. This computer will be worth looking at for mainly office doc and internet usage, or for viewing photos and video. For the rest, performance is too limited.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.
