Reviews for the HP Pavilion 17-ab000ng
Source: Laptop Media Archive.org version
The overall design and build quality is a little clunky but still feels pretty refreshing compared to last year’s model. However, we didn’t notice any major inconsistencies, gaps or flaws. The only thing that we would really like to be changed in the next version is the inconsistent and stiff touchpad. And probably lower the weight and height of the chassis. Anything other than that is just fine for a 17-incher starting at around $700-800.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.
