HP Pavilion dv2700t Review

The HP Pavilion dv2700t replaces the dv2500t as HP's newest 14.1" consumer notebook offering cutting edge design and performance in a mobile package. With Intel Core 2 Duo processors, available LightScribe optical drive, available nVidia dedicated graphics, and a stylish yet tough design, can the dv2700t help HP keep its place as one of the leading notebook manufacturers? Let's take a closer look.

The HP Pavilion dv2700t (starting at $799.99 after $100 instant savings) is available with a range of Core 2 Duo processors (from the Intel T5450 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo up to the newer T9300 2.50GHz Core 2 Duo Penryn). There is only one 14.1" screen offering, a 1280x800 WXGA glossy display. Observant readers will notice this review seems somewhat similar to my review of the HP Pavilion dv2500t simply because this notebook is a "refresh" of the last year's dv2500t.

Our review unit of the dv2700t has the following specifications:

  • Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
