The AMD’s Phenom ii P860 is a triple core processor that powers the HP  dv7-4272us  is clocked at 2.0 GHz. You can expect a decent performance level with this processor for all of your home and office computing needs. The Phenom ii P860 has an L2 Cache of 1.5 MB ( 512 KB for each of the three cores).

The Blu Ray ROM could turn the notebook into an entertainment power house, allowing you to watch Blu Ray Disk, on laptop or on an external HDTV using the hdmi connection.

The specification of the notebook lists over 7 hour of battery life with its 9 cell Lithium Ion battery. This is one of the highest we have seen in a high end notebook. This is made possible partly by the power efficient Phenom processor from AMD.
