Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-2215SA

83% HP Pavilion dv7-2215SA
Source: PC Pro English
Big is beautiful, or so the old saying goes, but in the world of laptops a gargantuan frame often comes with a similarly giant price tag. HP's Pavilion dv7 doesn't conform to that stereotype, however. Generously proportioned and available for just £487, it promises a hell of a lot of laptop for surprisingly little outlay. HP's Pavilion dv7 is a hulking 17.3in desktop replacement with a miniature price tag.
