Great refurbished laptop, big desktop replacement, no longer made by HP. My first one was stolen. These are fast, reliable, and have great screen graphics potential. The laptop I received was refurbished by, I think, Laptops Galore, and despite a few cosmetic scrapes, it works like new. However, these big babies, generate a lot of heat, so make sure you get an adequate cooling pad. My choice: "Havit HV-F2062". Only pad that has enough strength and power to work.

I have had this computer for almost 2 years now. This computer was one of the best computers I have ever had. Still would have been, if only I hadn't gotten 3 viruses. However after the 3 viruses (trojan horse started to p*ss me off.) I can't complain because as crippled as it may be it still runs games like a boss. No lag untill you start using certain mods (fallout new vegas) with tons of explosions. I run ac3 at full settings with minimum to no lag. So overall this computer is worth every penny to me. (I got it when it was worth $1500 dollars from HP themselves.) P.S. It runs very hot, as to be expected from a gaming pc of any kind. but I would recommend a cooling pad to set it on.

There is a lot of marketing hype around laptop and tablet features these days -- but, here's the real deal! When I tested the HP Pavilion dv7t Quad Edition at a local big box store I was hooked from day one. Then I received it as a gift at the Amazon price and was still amazed at how much of a powerful and fast laptop this is for my business and entertainment needs. My goal was to have an affordable Windows laptop PC that was as useful, powerful and durable as a desktop. The HP dv7t knocked it totally out of the park on ALL the specs I checked and compared with other Windows and Apple laptop computers -- and I still kept coming back to this model for its features. The Beats Audio system is even more of a knockout whether played through this laptop's front, back AND sub-woofer bottom-side speakers. This really mattered to me since I listen to a lot of CD and Internet radio Jazz, Hip-Hop and Classical music to clear my head during or after work. The video and sound is even more impressive when I hooked-it-up to the big screen TV from the the dv7t's HDMI connection. The large 17-inch adjustable screen is absolutely no strain on my eyes during long work periods, or viewing DVD and online movies on it. This tough 6-pounder that I sometimes carry from home is no more of a problem than carrying one textbook. Besides, I worry about how fragile many of the "thin is in" portable PCs being sold lately. I'm more secure with HP's light-weight metal and plastic construction of the dv7t for the long run. Because I am totally happy and very impressed with this laptop, I could say more about its other virtues. But, if you DO YOUR OWN checking and comparing of the line-by-line specs, you'll most likely do the right thing -- at a good price. Moreover, I don't like having to spend (or overspend) money every 2 or 3 years for a new PC. This well-built HP dv7t is a genuine keeper for at least the next 5-plus years of my work and fun. As the classic Hip-Hop song says, "Don't believe the hype!" other PC makers are slinging about why you should spend your dollars on their PCs or tablets. With its WiFi, high-resolution screen, very fast 8GB RAM (be sure to get the Intel i7 chip), studio-quality sound, sharp screen camera, fingerprint security, internal help features, plus multiple USB-HDMI-SD-VGA and audio inputs -- I now have my high-speed Internet, big hard drive, work tool, cable TV, bass-boosting stereo music, online telephone, and HD movie system in one box. HEAVEN!!! This HP workhorse affordably delivers the real deal 24/7 for work and play.
