The HP Pavilion 17z is a new laptop from HP’s Budget Laptop line. The specs of the laptop are pretty standard with a 1.5GHz AMD Quad-Core A4-5000 Processor powered by a 6GB DDR3 Ram which makes for a pretty decent performance for small to medium work loads. The system uses a 500GB onboard Hard Drive to store user data.
The Pavilion 17z 17.3-inch HD+ BrightView LED-backlit Display capable of a max resolution of 1600 x 900 which is pretty good considering that this is a sub-500$ laptop. The display of the HP Pavilion 17z is powered by an AMD Radeon HD 8330G GPU.
The design of the Pavilion 17z is mostly the same as other HP laptops but it does have a glossy finish to it which makes its pretty attractive, the user has a choice of 4 colors which include sparkling black(default), regal purple, revolutionary blue and flyer red.
If you want to buy a 17-inch budget laptop in the 450-500$ range the HP Pavilion 17z is a good buy especially considering that there arent many decent speced 17-inch laptops in this price range, but if you still want to explore more options I would recommend you to check out the HP Pavilion g7-2323dx.
