"The HP Pavilion dv7-1245dx is a piece of garbage."0.5 starson by capesquirt
Pros: Nothing!! But maybe it would make for a nice frisbee for my dog...
Cons: The speakers are barely audible at max volume and have really bad sound if you can even hear em. The keyboard can disappear if the lighting is not good. No supporting recovery software or rescue dics and snotty touchpad.
Summary: I really dislike the HP dv7-1245dx notebook. I bought it as HP said it would run a flight simulator game well and it fell way far short of that. The graphics installed was far less then HP promised with this machine. Also the HP installed software is useless,such as HP Advisor and health check just takes up space and is annoying as those things always run at start up and I have not yet been able to uninstall em. Useless... The machine always runs hot and consumes much energy. The touchpad is really,,really sensitive and if not careful just the heat from your fingers can cause the pointer to skip around the screen and often click on something you did not want to or cause you to lose your work. If ya have this machine please use a remote mouse. Well,,in a nutshell,,I,m really less than impressed with this machine. HP did not market it as it really is. I would not advise buying this product unless you just want a improvised or basic word processor.. Yeah it has 4 g's ram but the processor can't provide enough power to use the ram as it should.. Just not a good deal.. I used to like HP.. Not so impressed now!!!
