Elegant Design

The versatile 17" Pavilion dv7z series features smooth, clean lines with durable surfaces including a "liquid metallic" appearance that upgrades your cool factor among friends. With the streamlined, high-gloss, onyx and chrome finish, this notebook with matching keyboard and touchpad is a pleasure to look at and be seen with. Get extra kudos with an optional flush glass for a frameless look when you choose Infinity Display which will serve to enhance your viewing of games or movies along with high-resolution ATI graphics and entertainment options, a display up to WSXGA+, and the option for a 5400- or 7200-speed dual hard drive. Your need for multi-media speed will be satisfied with AMD Processor Dual Core technology.

Endless Entertainment and Fun

With everything-in-one-entertainment, the possibilities of fun are endless. An HDMI 1.3 port can connect your notebook PC to an external monitor or HD TV to record your favorite TV shows, view your digital camera photos with friends, listen to music, or host an impromptu karaoke contest. QuickPlay software allows one-click access to entertainment. You'll have plenty of format options available when you add Blu-ray ROM / DVD writer. You'll get extra storage space for your files when you're able to read Blu-ray discs and read HD DVD discs and still have access and the ability to read/write to your older files already stored on traditional DVDs and CDs. A built-in TV tuner is optional, but you'll get a remote control, premium multi-channel audio, and triple bass sub-woofer to really feel the rumble while playing the latest 3-D games. Having built-in Wi-Fi increases your ability to join friends at your favorite hang outs. Face-to-face chatting is easier with a built-in low-light webcam and digital microphones. Have fun exploring your favorite hang outs online.

Reliable Experiences

When you're having fun, you'll rest easy knowing that this high-quality PC has built-in HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection to automatically detect if your notebook has been dropped and locks your hard drive to protect your data. The high-speed eSATA combo port will give you fast access to your files or can serve as an additional USB 2.0 port. Extra security doesn't have to be complicated - simplified password management with an integrated fingerprint reader is optional. With all the discs you'll be burning, having the ability to design/print your own silkscreen-quality DVD and CD labels with LightScribe is an option you'll want to add.
