Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-6185us

80% HP Pavilion dv7-6185us 17.3-inch Desktop Replacement Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
HP's Pavilion dv7-6185us is a serious alternative to the Envy series for those wanting high performance but not necessarily using it for gaming. The Intel Core i7 quad core processor and 6GB of memory allow it to handle even tough tasks such as desktop video. Storage is superb with a large hard drive, Blu-ray compatible drive and two USB 3.0 ports for expansion. HP has even moved back to a traditional trackpad from the poorly received unified version.

AMD Radeon HD 6490M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename with support for fast GDDR5. The chip can be clocked at 700-750 with GDDR5 and 800 with slow DDR3.

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.
