HP Pavilion dv7-1240-us 2.2GHz AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Notebook w/ Webcam & HDMI - Bronze -

Expanding on the sophisticated elegance of the current line, the new HP Pavilion dv7-1448DX is defined by fluid, modern lines and metalized finishes with surprising innovations inside and out. High-gloss HP Imprint finish in bronze and chrome now encases all surfaces visible during normal use for greater durability. The powerful dual core AMD Turion X2 RM-75 2.2GHz processor, 4GB DDR2 RAM, 320GB HDD, DVD/CD+-RW, 17" High Definition WXGA+ Display, and Vista Home Premium 64-bit make this an ideal choice. The grid-like pattern provides subtle contrast to the liquid appearance of the metallic finish, giving her a stunning and attractive appearance. The streamlined look is enhanced with a color-matched keyboard and touchpad. And touch media controls light up and become visible only when the system is powered on further enhancing the clean appearance. HP’s mobile products have won coveted International Red Dot, iF and CES Innovation design awards and been recognized by other leading design institutions.    

Providing more choices than ever, QuickPlay enables access to DVDs, videos, photos, music, karaoke, games, and Internet TV at the touch of a button. Built-in demos show you how to add music to your slide shows or videos with drag-and-drop functionality – and much more. An HDMI port enables you to watch films on an HD TV. Extras include dual headphone jacks and an HP Mobile Remote Control. It’s time to play!

Sorry, I never asked a question! Is this laptop anygood? Most of them have bad reviews bcuz the operating system corrupted which was windows vista 64bit, but this one comes with windows 7. This is an entertainment laptop, but I am NOT A GAMER AT ALL! this unit will be used for school work, Photoshop, power point presentation, and web surfing. Users also had problems with the fan and the computer overheating... Sorry for this post being sooooo long, but is this a good buy? Btw, it is factory refurbished, not by HP , but by a local tech team, and is $445 flat, no shipping charge or tax. What do u think?

Update 2:

It has a 30 day warranty. Do you think it is a good buy? or can you recommend what would be a good computer for Photoshop, college work, power points, and websurfing?

    The DV series has always had issues with the VGA overheating, most commonly in the 6000 and 9000 series.

    You should note that the waffle says it comes with the Windows 7 upgrade disc from HP, it does not actually say it comes with W7 installed!

    Specs wise it is pretty good, but you should also note that the waffle says nothing about warranty (unless you didn't include it). If it has no warranty do not touch it, with a three month warranty you are still risking a fair bit but is better than none at all.

    Theres a few problems with it.

    Its a Dv series which is known for over heating.

    It has an Amd Turion processor, which are known for over heating and running slow

    Its got crap for ram

    Graphics card is ok

    Its a refurb which means it may have been left on 24/7 for how ever old it is. Its life could be very short due to this. For around $600 you can buy a good new laptop which will last you about 4 years. IMO and from what i have seen Dell is awful, Hp is a little better but still bad, Acer is hit or miss, Asus is hit or miss, Sony is Good, Apple is great, Toshiba is great. Dells will last about 2.5 years average and Toshibas will run until they are completely obsolete 5 years average.

    In short if you want to gamble with $450 i would do it else were for a better deal. Check out best buy, sams club, newegg, etc. Someone that will back the product.

    Um...what's your question? All I see is computer specs, which is more of a statement than a question.
