Source: Digital Versus Archive.org version
The HP Pavilion dv7 series regularly evolves and continues to improve. This new model, the dv7-4055sf has an entry-level positioning. The new HP Pavilion dv7-4055sf sets its stall out by its ease-of-use. This computer will be worth looking at for mainly office doc and internet usage, or for viewing photos and video. For the rest, performance is too limited.
