HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx

 

The HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx is a solid desktop replacement laptop that adds enticing wireless features, like WiDi 2.0 and WiMAX 4G broadband, underneath its sleek aluminum chassis.

Core i5 processor offers solid performance. Over nine hours of battery life. Extensive wireless features like WiDi 2.0 and WiMAX 4G broadband. Fingerprint reader. Sleek aluminum chassis. Beats Audio software onboard. USB 3.0 ports.

No backlit keyboard. Screen falls short of full 1080p HD. Bloatware.

HP Pavilion dv7 review: HP Pavilion dv7

 

HP Pavilion dv7

The ; is a nice-looking big-screen laptop with long battery life and very good performance for the money.

The dv7's screen is low-resolution for its size and its integrated graphics drag down the performance some.

If you're looking for a lot of screen real estate and enough power for work and play, the HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx is a good place to start.

HP Pavilion dv7 QE: A Gorgeous Laptop That Falls Short in Performance

 

The HP Pavilion dv7 Quad Edition is HP's higher-end model in its dv7 series. It's undoubtedly a gorgeous machine, but in performance it doesn't quite measure up to other desktop replacement laptops. Still, it's lighter than most 17-inchers, and it has...

Attractive chassis ; Lightweight for its category

Lower-than-average performance ; The speakers disappoint

The HP Pavilion dv7 QE is undoubtedly an attractive machine, but it struggles to match other desktop replacements' performance scores.

HP Pavilion dv7-6123cl

 

The HP Pavilion dv7-6123cl is a well-built desktop replacement that delivers very good battery life, but skimps on features.

Sturdy aluminum finish. Beats Audio sound system. Long battery life. Two-year warranty.

Integrated graphics. No Blu-ray drive. Relatively low-res screen. Limited wireless features.

HP Pavilion dv7-6135dx

 

The HP Pavilion dv7-6135dx is a smart mix of solid construction, strong performance, and all-day battery life. You'd never guess it was half the price of some competing systems.

All-day battery life. Large 750GB hard drive. Dual-headphone jacks. Fast Intel Core i5-2410M processor. Beats audio and integrated subwoofer.

No Blu-ray. Screen doesn't quite offer 1080p resolution. Could use a backlit keyboard. Bloatware.

HP Pavilion dv7-4272us

 

Combining the good looks of the Pavilion line with an AMD processor and discrete graphics card, the HP Pavilion dv7-4272us is a solid desktop replacement that offers plenty of entertainment options.

Blu-ray, 720p display, and Beats Audio. ATI switchable graphics. 750GB hard drive. 7-hour battery life.

Thick and heavy. Performance lags behind some of its peers.

HP Pavilion dv7-4283cl

 

The HP Pavilion dv7-4283cl desktop replacement laptop is fast as it is battery efficient.

Sexy metallic design. Big battery included. Close to 6 hours of battery life. Big, bright screen. Spacious, fast 640GB drive. Blu-ray drive included. Terrific speaker system. Fastest Core i5 available.

Touchpad needs a makeover. Graphics performance was disappointing.

HP Pavilion dv7-4263cl

 

Though it lacks the higher-end features of a more expensive media center, the HP Pavilion dv7-4263cl is a desktop replacement that delivers solid performance and components for a budget-friendly price.

Triple-core processor. Discrete ATI graphics. Screen is well-suited to DVDs. Beats Audio and integrated subwoofer. Long battery life. Costco 2-year warranty and tech support comes free.

No Blu-ray. Bloatware.

HP Pavilion dv7-4183cl

 

The HP Pavilion dv7-4183cl's new components, including a faster Core i5 processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory (from 4GB), and bigger battery, are more dominant than anything else you can buy at this price.

Sexy metallic design. Even bigger battery now, which delivered 6 hours of battery life. Big, bright screen. Spacious, fast 500GB drive. Blu-ray drive included. Terrific speaker system.

Touchpad needs a makeover.
