The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
Product series:
Product series is a brand's indication, often indicated by round numbers like 3000, that identifies a group of products within one category that are technically very similar. We don't include product serie in the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet to avoid confusion.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Despite their budget prices, HP's Pavilion laptops are stylish, thanks to a clean design and tough aluminium construction. The DV7-6101sa is no different – the 17in chassis isn’t exactly compact, but its sleek appearance gives the impression of a much...
Bottom line Another great Pavilion laptop from HP, but if you’re after serious desktop performance you’ll need to look further than an entry-level AMD Llano processor...
With its brushed metal-effect chassis and smooth curves, the dv7 is one of the best looking mid-range laptops HP has produced in a long time, but it has function as well as form. The five Beats Audio speakers, Blu-ray player and 17.3in screen could mak...
Bottom line An excellent design, great speakers and plenty of performance, but MSI's GE620 is better value if performance is your top priority...
Looking for something bigger and better than the HP dv6? It could be the HP Pavilion dv7, but we have more reservations about this model. This is a hefty machine, weighing in at just under 3.5kg and it's quite clearly the dv6's big brother; actually i...

We've been impressed before by the build quality of HP's Pavilion line, and the latest dv7 model is no exception. A glossy, patterned lid opens to reveal a matching pattern around the keyboard, while a stylish and sturdy metal strip runs around the edg...

Big, glossy and filled with features, HPs 17.3in Pavilion dv7 2022tx notebook is aimed at users who want a desktop replacement that can be used as home entertainment hub. It provides plenty of processing power, lots of storage and its quite comfortable to use. The Pavilion dv7 2022tx laptop has an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 CPU (which runs at 2.53GHz), 4GB of DDR2 RAM, two 320GB hard drives (Western Digital WD3200BEVT) and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 graphics adapter with 512MB of GDDR3 memory...

Heave the 3kg HP dv7 from its enormous box and you can’t help but have your hopes raised: this is a notebook that gives the impression of high-end consumer tech promise. The brushed silver back has a refined air to it and Apple stylee, the HP logo ligh...
Bottom line The HP Pavilion dv7 has a huge screen, and while power users will crave more pixels, there’s not much you can’t do with 1600 x 900. Its desktop-replacement credentials continue with the full-size keyboard and numpad, and although this isn’t exactly th...
You don't see an awful lot of laptops with 1TB of storage space, but that is exactly what this big HP Pavilion dv7-6101sa has to offer. Overall, the specifications of the dv7 look quite impressive on paper, although in practice its performance leaves a...
Bottom line While the price tag is inviting – and we’ve seen deals offering the dv7 for even fewer pounds than the £700 listed here – this HP is considerably bigger and slower than most modern laptops. Other components are more up-to-date, and build quality is not...
The HP Pavilion dv7-6b04ea has a very impressive set of specifications on paper - however, it doesn't live up to the tale of the tape. This laptop uses an AMD processor, the dv7's quad-core 1.8GHz A8-3510MX processor is backed up by 8GB of RAM yet only...
Bottom line We're slightly disappointed by the performance of the HP in comparison to the other models, though it is indicative of the differences we see between Intel and AMD's processors in the WorldBench 6 suite. There are some real highlights though - the desi...
There's no doubt about it, the Pavilion dv7-6013tx is big. For Shaquille O'Neal or Yao Ming it could be considered a laptop, but for the rest of us, it's most definitely a heavy desktop replacement. It features a 17.3in screen, weighs over 3kg and it...

Bottom line The Pavilion dv7 should appeal to those of you who want a fast desktop replacement that can be used for just about any computing task, including gaming. It doesn't have a great screen, and its keyboard is flimsy, but its configuration is up there with...
The HP Pavilion dv7-6002sa is a hulking brute of a laptop; weighing in at 3.5kg it has a 17.3in screen and isn’t something that you’d want to carry around much, except from room to room. It has a full-sized keyboard with a numeric keypad and is remark...
Bottom line We just can’t understand why HP opted against a full HD display on a 17in model with Blu-ray drive. It’s a shame because the sound quality is so good that a 1920 x 1080 screen would make it a near-perfect entertainment-focused laptop. It’s also slow in...
In terms of features, the HP Pavilion DV7-6002sa is a winner. Bulging with loads of fantastic extras, this laptop offers a lot to the creative professional, although performance lags behind its rivals. If you have top-secret files and don't want unauth...

Spending $2299 for a 17.3-inch notebook seems steep, but HP is promising good hardware specifications on the dv7. The system features a 2.66 Ghz Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GT 230M graphics card with 1GB memory, and 1TB of st...

True to form, HP has given us another very glossy one. This is a way of masking the poor quality of the screen - glossy is more flattering than matte, which would be more acceptable if the panel quality was up to scratch. Instead, you get omnipresent r...

HP has a strong range of consumer laptops in its Pavilion series, and the dv7-2045ea is a well-built, entertainment-focused entry. However, its fantastic range of features is sadly undermined by a lacklustre specification which can't match the best at...

HP's dv7-4035sa has a 17in screen and a dedicated graphics card, as well as a triple core AMD processor. It's fitted with two ATI graphics chips: one is an older 4250 part integrated onto the motherboard, while the other is a dedicated 5470 chip that s...

Bottom line At £799 the HP Pavilion dv7 is a good all-rounder, fine for playing games and general home entertainment use. The AMD quad-core processor can’t keep up with recent Intel Core series chips in everyday tasks but may prove useful for multitaskers looking...
A number of the desktop replacement notebooks that entered our office recently were aimed squarely at the gaming market. This usually means unusual designs, with the units looking more like UFOs that landed instead of a regular notebook. HP’s extremely...
