HP Pavilion dv7-6195us Overview
After doing research, I settled on this HP Pavilion dv7-6195us laptop instead of the other 17 inch model from other brand which had an i7 processor too, but unfortunately it was more pricey to me.
It has been weeks I was looking for a laptop that has intel i7 series fast processor, plenty of hard drive, a 17 inch sharp screen, and has approximately 6 GB of RAM. (got it at $899.99)
I have owned this HP Pavilion dv7 series model approximately 3 weeks now and in fact, I use it daily for standard and a lot of picture editing use.
I use this machine mainly for high level image or video editing using softwares such as Adobe Photoshop, LightRoom, and Ms Office 2010 as well as gaming and browsing the net.
I never have experienced any kind of issues thus far.

The laptop’s build quality is pretty sturdy.
It is really well-built unit, is stylish and also sleek, has a sturdy metal construction.
The only small complaint to me is it doesn’t have backlight on its keyboard. So typing on my laptop in the dark is very difficult.
Screen: 17.3-inch diagonal high-definition LED with 1600 x 900 resolution
The screen is huge and excellent, and if you prefer, you can also easily adjust the brightness manually.
The 17 beatiful screen is actually my main reason why I bought this model.
Processor: 2nd Generation of Intel Core i7-2630QM at 2.0GHz
A very fast processor, and handles multitasking effectively with no noticable speed reduction.
The performance of this HP Pavilion dv7-6195us is a lot better than my work desktop in the office.
Memory: GB DDR3 RAM
Plenty of RAM, which is simply great and better than most of 4gb laptops.
Graphic card: 1GB Ati Radeon HD 6770M with switchable graphic system.
Actually the built-in graphics card is amazing, I have tested many games with this machine, and they didn’t suffer from any low frame rate max settings issues.
Hard drive: 1TB Dual (2 x 500GB 5400RPM)
1TB hard drive is a lot of storage for most people and it has a tolerable speed (5400RPM).
Beats Audio Laptop speakers
You will be amazed with HP beats audio speakers, they are definitely the most clear and most loud I’ve ever heard, especially from a laptop with almost similar price and specification.
The blu ray feature is absolutely ideal to watch high definition videos, YouTube HD videos look wonderful, the BluRay DVDs movies plays flawless too.
You can connect this silver HP notebook to any HDTVs if you wish to watch movies on a bigger monitor.
