Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-6b04ea

The new dv7 is a definite improvement on the previous model. It's still a 3.4kg knee-cruncher but now it has an understated design that minimises the bulk of the system and the audio quality is far better. We still have some quibbles about the glossy screen and ultra-shiny screen bezel, and about having a backlight for the trackpad but not the keyboard. Storage, memory and ports are all top notch. And while we're delighted that the heat issues are gone, the AMD processor doesn't always match up to Intel Sandy Bridge with dedicated graphics for gaming.

We're slightly disappointed by the performance of the HP in comparison to the other models, though it is indicative of the differences we see between Intel and AMD's processors in the WorldBench 6 suite. There are some real highlights though - the design is very pleasing in both practical and aesthetic terms and the generous storage provision is remarkable too. It's the price tag, though, that is the most impressive thing about the HP - £849.

Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 6750M and a 6620G or 6520G APU graphics card (e.g., found in the AMD 3500M CPU).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
