HP Pavilion dv7 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
For less than 1000 euros the HP Pavilion dv7 laptop is a very capable multimedia or gaming outfit. It slightly suspect keyboard and mouse buttons disqualify it from serious office use, but only ultra-hardcore gamers could be disappointed in its performance. We strongly recommend upgrading to the HD version. Pick up hp vouchers before you make your purchase.

AMD Radeon HD 7690M XT: Renamed Radeon HD 6770M and therefore faster than the similar called 7690M (without XT) which is based on the 6750M.

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.  


2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz 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.
