This PC meets or exceeds all of the minimum system requirements for Adobe Reader XI listed on the manufacturer’s website, so it should have no issues running this software.

Depends on the OS. XHome maxs out at 8G. XPremium goes to 16G.

The AMD A10 has integrated Radeon 7660G video-why would you want to do that?

1-year limited hardware warranty(says so above)

Question

Processor Speed

Just a question regarding the processor speed listed on this item. I've been trying to decide between the "HP Midnight Black 15.6" Envy dv6-7229wm Laptop" and the "HP Midnight Black 17.3 Envy dv7-7227cl Laptop" and I've compared each of them. The only major difference (besides size) that I am noticing is the 15.6 version seems to have a processor speed of 3.20GHz which is almost a whole GHz larger than the 17.3 laptop, which is only listed at 2.30GHz. But the 15.6 laptop is also about $50 cheaper. I'm guessing that this is a typo (the numbers 2 and 3 got switched maybe?) since both laptops possess the same processor. But I just wanted to ask this before making my decision, since I can sometimes overlook things that are obvious to others. Thank you.

I have the 15.6" w/AMD A10 Quad core processor running @ 3.2 GHz. I shopped around and this machine had the best credentials at the time for running/editing MP4 video. I've since seen the 17.3" with the Intel i7 processor running @ 2.3.
Depends on what you're doing with it, and what you want from it. If you plan to travel with it then get the 15.6". If it will sit still most of it's life then spring for the larger screen.

answer 2
The AMD A10 processor runs at 3.2Ghz when apps or the system require more processing power, but will drop down to 2.3Ghz when the computer is not tasked, or idling, to save power, and extend your battery life. The same goes for the dv7-7227cl you were looking at. The specs were just written differently, with one using the max speed, and one using the minimum speed, probably not written by the same person.

On average, 6-cell Lithium-Ion batteries will last approximately two to three hours on a single charge. Unfortunately, exact battery run time and life span information is not available. Various factors, such as the temperature of the battery, the applications running on the notebook, any attached devices, the brightness of the display, and the notebook power management settings all determine the run time and life span of your battery. Also, the performance and charge times of Lithium-ion batteries decrease over time. There are suggested ways to help increase the run time and life span of your battery:

- Reduce the brightness of the screen to the minimum readable level
- Remove peripherals (External hard drives, CD-ROMs, Zip drives, PC cards, and other peripheral devices) when not in use; these devices can draw power from your battery even when they are not in active use
- Reduce the speed of your processor
- Turn off the Wireless On-Off button when it is not in use (If your notebook has one)
