HP Pavilion dv7t
The Pavilion dv7t is one of HP's "entertainment powerhouse" notebooks, just one step down from the ludicrously oversize 20-inch HDX. Beyond the 17-inch screen, and under the cool "liquid metal" exterior, lies Intel's new Centrino 2 processor.
The dv7t, with its 2.53-GHz Core 2 Duo T9400 processor and 3GB of RAM,
Battery life was 3 hours, 1 minute, not bad for an 8.4-pound unit with a 17-inch screen. If only we could see the screen a little better. In a typical fluorescent-lit office, viewing the display is hard.
On the bright side, if you like shiny things, you'll love the dv7t. The lid and lower casing are black, but inside it resembles a slab of highly polished steel topped off with a similarly finished keyboard and icy-white status lights.
I only wish that the rigid mouse buttons depressed a little farther into the case, and that HP's volume swipe were better behaved.
If you can overlook those little problems, the dv7t is a handsome, fast unit. For our review it was nicely configured with a 400GB hard drive, a Blu-ray drive, and Windows Vista Home Premium.
Forget the peripherals right now, though. Without the docking station, the dv7t slightly stumbles as an end-all, be-all
HP Pavilion dv7t
This heavy duty desktop replacement's performance wows, but falls a little short where you'd expect it to sing: multimedia.
- Searing speed
- Sleek, futuristic 'liquid metal' finish
- Dull, dim screen
- Lackluster in-movie audio
