    Overall, the DV7 is not that bad of a laptop, it runs well and it will have no trouble with handling the day to day demands that most people will have for it. However even with the seemingly great specifications (I run a Quad-Core Sandy Bridge i7, 8gb or RAm and a 1GB AMD Radeon Graphics card) it struggles to run a large number of more demanding tasks that much cheaper computers can run easily.
