The HP dv7t Wants all your Hard Work

"With a name like Pavilion dv7t Quad Edition, you know HP's latest 17-inch desktop replacement is no slowpoke. In addition to a blazing second-generation Intel Quad Core i7 processor and switchable AMD graphics, this aluminum-bodied speedster (starting at $1,099) packs both a 7,200-rpm hard drive and a 120GB SSD to give shoppers the best of both worlds. On the other hand, the $1,604 asking price for our configuration is hardly chump change. Is the dv7t Quad Edition splurge-worthy?"

Most people pick notebooks because they are portable, light and flexible. Most notebooks do that job well. However, there are some people want an incredible powerhouse and that is where the HP dv7t Quad Edition comes in. There are several manufacturers that make desktop replacements and all come with a beefy CPU, a beefy GPU and usually, a beefy design. A second generation Core i7 CPU and a higher end mobile video card means the HP dv7t will crunch through anything you will likely need, bolstered by a SSD. With options like this, is there a practical reason why desktops still exist?

HP Offers New Notebooks For Those Pinching Pennies

"HP has added two new notebook options to the company’s line of customizable laptops. The new budget friendly HP Pavilion G62m and the desktop replacement Pavilion dv7t, which is a 17.3? notebook powered by Intel Core i processors."

The new HP Pavillion G62m and dv7t may not turn any heads, but they are functional, low cost notebooks that will do the jobs you ask them to without much fuss. With all the hype about netbooks, then slates, it is easy to forget that a lot of people still like the traditional notebook or laptop with a nice, roomy screen and keyboard. I am glad to see that for even what HP considers their budget line, the CPUs maintain dual-core performance. As common as they are now, I find it very difficult to justify single core computers unless there are some extreme requirements. Dual or more core computers just tend to run considerably smoother and is worth the extra price they command, and battery life they sacrifice.
