Not all laptops are created equal. Some laptops are made for people who work while on the move while other laptops are designed for people who see laptops as a gadget that allows them to have entertainment anywhere, anytime. The HP Pavilion is a series of laptops and notebooks designed especially for people who use laptops as their main source of canned entertainment. Take a look at the HP Pavilion DV7-1240US Notebook, if you are always on the go and could not leave your favorite music and videos behind, this lappy is the one for you. With 2.1 GHz AMD Turion X2 RM-72 dual-core processor and 4 GB RAM, it has enough power to make your music and video come to life with you where ever you go. And check out the widescreen 17-inch LCD display, which is given life by ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics (up to 1918 MB total). You can also store a lot of videos and music in its 320 GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive.
The HP Pavilion DV7-1240US Notebook also comes equipped with multiformat DVD/CD drive that is compatible with writing both DVD+ and DVD- disc formats as well as dual-layer (DL) DVD+/-R discs. Of course it has LightScribe DVD±RW drive which allows you to laser-etch silkscreen quality text and images on your CDs and DVDs.
HP Pavilion DV7-1240US has a 101-key keyboard (with integrated numeric keypad) and a touchpad with on/off button and dedicated vertical/horizontal Scroll Up/Down pad. It also includes two quick-launch buttons (HP QuickPlay Music and DVD).
Here are more features:
4 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals–from digital cameras to MP3 players (with 1 eSATA + USB 2.0 combo port)
