Asus G60VX-RBBX05 and HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx - HP Pavilion Design
(Page 4 of 4 )
The HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx has an attractive look that is highlighted by its proprietary HP Espresso Imprint finish with a funky design that covers the laptop's lid and the area surrounding the keyboard and touch pad. Some chrome accents around the edges add an extra touch as well.
The Pavilion dv7-3085dx measures 16.2 inches wide by 10.9 inches deep by 1.7 inches thick and weighs 7.7 pounds.
The interior showcases the Pavilion dv7-3085dx's large 17.3-inch widescreen LED display with 1,600x900 resolution that produces vibrant graphics. Unfortunately, HP decided to go with a glossy coating for the screen, meaning glare issues will arise from time to time. A 1080p full HD display would have been nice considering the large display size. Still, the Pavilion dv7-3085dx is a good choice for viewing movies not only due to the large display but also the integrated Altec Lansing speakers that provide crisp sound.
The laptop's keyboard is large and includes a number pad for easier use as well as some dedicated media controls. The choice to go with a glossy finish on the keys is a bit annoying, but they are responsive nonetheless. The touch pad has a mirrored finish that makes it a bit slippery and uncomfortable to use.
Last but not least are the Pavilion dv7-3085dx's solid connectivity features. The left side of the laptop houses a VGA port; an Ethernet port; a HDMI port; two USB ports, one of which doubles as an eSATA port; a FireWire port; and the media reader. The right side houses the DVD drive, two more USB ports, and a phone modem connection. The front houses the microphone and headphone jacks.
Although the HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx is missing a few features for its high price, such as a Blu-ray drive and a full 1080p display, it is still a quality laptop. The large display is great for multimedia, and the Core i7 processor delivers excellent performance. Battery life is also impressive when you consider the size of the laptop and its powerful CPU.
