Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-6002sa
Source: PC Advisor
We just can’t understand why HP opted against a full HD display on a 17in model with Blu-ray drive. It’s a shame because the sound quality is so good that a 1920 x 1080 screen would make it a near-perfect entertainment-focused laptop. It’s also slow in comparison to rivals sporting Intel’s Core i5 and i7 Sandy Bridge processors – but it’s harder to argue with the price. As long as you’re looking for a laptop to replace a desktop PC, and not to carry around with you, the HP is relatively good value for money.

While the Pavilion DV7's performance is beaten by other laptops at this price point, there's no denying it's an excellent media machine. If you want to get creative at home, the vibrant screen and powerful audio system, along with the excellent range of features, make this a laptop worth a look.

The HP Pavilion series delivers good performance at a good price, and the dv7 is no exception. Its 17-inch display is crisp and clear, and you get good sound quality. Two USB 3.0 ports are a welcome addition, and should make backing up and working with media drives a lot easier (and a lot faster). Like the dv6, this is an ideal home laptop - even if its weight makes it more suitable for a desk. For sheer performance we much prefer the dv6, but a 17-inch system of this quality at this price is a bargain - as long as you’re happy with the heat, the limitations of the AMD/Radeon combination and the sheer size of the beast.

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
N660: 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 N660 should be located in the mid range of laptop CPUs (Core i3-370M).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
