Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv7-3165dx

70% HP Pavilion dv7-3165dx
Source: CNet English
It would be silly to expect the HP Pavilion dv7-3165dx to have a great battery life; it's a monster laptop with a 17-inch LED-backlit LCD, 7,200rpm hard drive, and a discrete graphics chip. Still, with battery lives getting longer and longer, this dv7 does come up short on time away from a power outlet. The older AMD processor in the dv7 seems power hungry without providing a competitive multitasking performance kick. People who would rather have a big screen instead of great battery life will be happy with the HP dv7-3165dx.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200). Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
M620:

Entry - Middle class dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core (desktop Athlon II). The performance should be compareable to a 2.0-2.2GHz Core 2 Duo.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.5 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
