BuZZ from Customer Shopping

Great5
I was looking for a 17" screen computer and this one fit the bill. It is easy to operate, and the 64 bit operating system is working fine. I deleted the software that came with it and loaded AVG anti virus, Spybot spyware and also Open office instead of paying for the microsoft office system supplied. I have not had any problems but one annoying thing was the automatic update feature. I suggest you change the settings to ask if you want to download the update to keep the computer from re-starting when you are in the middle of a project.

I priced this at other stores and Amazon was cheapest. Free shipping and I got the computer in 3 days!

An extremely capable laptop4
I purchased this almost exact same model from Best Buy a little more than 3 weeks ago for $899. The only difference I can see between the two is that this one has bluetooth and the Best Buy model (dv7-1175nr) did not. The performance of this laptop is very good. Screen image is better than that of my aging dv8113cl that I purchased from Sam's Club 4 years ago. Bluray works well, but it will only work in Quick Play mode when the computer itself is shut down. It also sports one of the hottest graphics cards on the streets,... the 9600Gt is the same card HP shoves into their HDX series books in 256 and 512 flavors. The one in this model is the 512. Even at this relatively high price, it is a worthy purchase.

I'd advise you to see if you can get the Chrome theme though. I got the bronze theme and the keys are very hard to see unless you are in the best of lighting conditions. Not a lot of constrast between the white letters and the bronze (brown) keys. Backlit keys would have been nice.

Great value and performance4
Fast, powerful laptop with zippy wireless Internet performance. Acceptable battery life. Bluetooth wireless mouse is great accessory to add. Only nit is slightly washed out (low contrast) LCD monitor performance on web pages. Found notes on web on how to manually adjust video driver settings to optimize for crisper whites. But for the price, we are very happy with this purchase.
