Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-6163us

70% HP Pavilion dv7-6163us
Source: PC Mag English
If you're looking for a large laptop that's also truly powerful, you won't find it in the HP Pavilion dv7-6163us—you will have to shell out considerably more, on something like the Dell XPS 15z, to find it. But if you're not satisfied by the diminutive dimensions and too-basic feature sets you find on traditional laptops in the $800-$900 range, the dv7-6163us gives you a fair number of the perks at a significantly lower price.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.
