Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-6c55sa

80% HP Pavilion dv7-6c55sa review
Source: Techradar English
A search for a creativity-driven laptop is a search for a laptop that can handle pretty much everything you throw at it, and the HP Pavilion dv7 fits that description. Neither the most powerful nor the most expensive 17-inch machine we've seen, the dv7 nonetheless excels and is one we happily recommend for anyone on a creative course.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.
