I wanted a reasonably priced laptop using the i7 processor so, since my wife already has an HP, I decided to 'keep it in the family' and get this HP. It was at a good price compared to WalMart and other store fronts. It's super fast compared to my old Acer and it lets me play a few of my games as well. Movie Maker is MUCH FASTER as is just about everything else. The screen is nice and wide also. The battery promises a very long run time and I can see why. They have ingeniously packed an extra row of cells outside of where they normally would be situated inside the contour of the laptop. This row is actually OUTSIDE of the contour on the bottom and it acts like a foot to slant the keyboard toward you. It makes it very comfortable. Great idea!
This laptop is by far, one of the fastest products available right now. Its' i7 processor combined with 8 GB will give you plenty of room for growth. The screen is crystal clear and this little gem comes with about 9 hours of battery power! The price is right on the mark for a laptop that will easily exceed your expectations.
Received in two days, in perfect condition. I bought this as a replacement for my four year old refurbished 17" HP laptop and it is an improvement in every way. It's lighter, the keyboard is a joy to use, and neither the laptop nor power supply overheat. Got an Amazon Prime account with attendant free streaming video when I ordered and movies are fabulous viewed on the big screen. With 8GB RAM, it's fast and powerful. Will update with more info after I've had it longer, but at this point I am more than satisfied.

I purchased this laptop for my wife, who works from home. This machine is replacing a 6 year old Acer Aspire 5102wmli. This laptop is a true desktop replacement. The i7 screams, 8 GB RAM is more than enough for the average person (other than hard-core gaming or CAD work), the 1 TB drive is almost limitless in size, the keyboard is very good for a laptop, the screen is awesome and huge, and the battery life is very good (6+ hours, depending on use). I own a DV6-6110us (AMD A6 processor), and am very happy with it. However, I was surprised at how much better the keyboard was on the DV7 -- they look the same, but the keys have a very different feel. I was perfectly happy with my keyboard until I used the DV7 while setting-up my wife's new machine. Also, the spacing of the keys is more like a full-sized keyboard. The machine has USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, GB LAN, fantastic WiFi reception, and useful HP system utilities. Unfortunately, it also comes with the usual crap-ware loaded, which took a half hour to uninstall. For those in the market for a full-sized laptop, look no further. The machine is well-designed, well-made, and faster than you'll ever need.
My wife and I were searching for a high performance machine to replace our desktop and we were impressed by the many features of this laptop at a very competitive price. We were impressed with the processor speed and the large high definition display. Plenty of storage space made this an outstanding choice for a home computer for years to come. Accordingly, we gave this unit an intial rating of 5 stars.
Update: In May 2013 the hard drive died and needed to be replaced. I contacted HP and was asked to return the unit in packaging supplied by HP via FedEx overnight courier service under HP's warranty program. I did exactly as I was told. The package sat in a repair facility in Texas for over a week without any comment from the facility. On the day I was supposed to receive the unit back, I was instead told by the repair facility that my computer was received with a damaged screen! I was also told that the repair facility would not touch the machine until I agreed to pay for the repair of the damaged screen first. The original repair cost for the damaged screen was close to $350; HP was willing to reduce the cost to approximately $200 after I expressed my objections in the strongest terms possible. Bottom line - I did not send HP a computer with a damaged screen and I ended up spending $200 that I would not have had to pay if I had in-home warranty service. Further, I resented the fact that I was not notified immediately of the issue upon receipt in Texas by the repair facility some seven days earlier. I learned a hard lesson - never purchase any computer without in-home warranty repair service. On the basis of what happened, I have to amend my rating to 3 stars. In all fairness to HP, the computer was ultimately returned in excellent condition and it continues to operate optimally since that time.
UPDATE May 2014 - the computer continues to operate optimally since it was repaired for a hard drive failure in May 2013 as previously noted.
I've had this Laptop, now for 6 months now, I didn't order it from Amazon.com but I did buy it from Costco. It's the same product, same features and everything. The prices are different though, at Costco where I bought mine (comes with a free 2-Year Warrenty, which might explain it.) I paid $1,020.89 for mine, while on Amazon it is about $980.00 which is a better price, not sure if it comes with a 2-Year Warrenty however.
I am in-love with the back-light keyboard. The screen is HUGE, but it is a little impractical for the average college student, but I need a large screen for my major. Graphic Design. The Core i7 makes the whole computer powerful which is what I need, along with the graphics chips. Beats Audio I know is the key feature for this line of HP computers. It is really a significant amount of base from the subwoofer, and that's mainly the diffence.
For those who may have issues with pop-ups, just go into Control Panel and to UnInstall Programs, or restor to factory settings, make sure you back-up personal documents, and softwear.
