this was a gift for my husband, he loves the size and clear,colorful screen,thats what bought him to this computer he saw it in store and then his old laptop went bad so i found this one on line cheaper than the store.it has windows 8, so he has to get use to it as he had vista before.
from dallas, tx
used for email, youtube, and streaming movies.easy to set up.windows 8 takes some getting too.
DV& big screen in laptops
from South Florida
The only real complaint I have is that windows 8 takes some getting use to. I am by no means the fastest at typing and it seems as though I have to wait on the system to catch up.. other than that this is my second DV7. i think I like windows 7 better
Just what I expected
from Va. Beach, VA
Still trying to figure out Win 8.So far I'd rather have Win 7.But I din't like WIn 7 when I went from XP.
