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.

AMD Radeon HD 6755G2:

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.

A8-3510MX: Llano quad-core APU clocked at 1.8-2.5 GHz (Turbo Core) featuring an integrated Radeon 6620G (400 cores, 400MHz) graphics card.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
