Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-6110ec
Source: PC World
The HP Pavilion dv7 QE is a sleek, sexy, and relatively lightweight desktop replacement. The only problem: It's a desktop replacement. And for desktop replacements, prettiness and portability aren't exactly the most important features--performance is. That said, the dv7 QE performs pretty well and has lots of upgrades (a Blu-ray player, USB 3.0 ports, 8GB of RAM), so if you're in the very small percentage of people who are looking for an attractive, portable desktop replacement, look no further.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
