In addition to a blazing second-generation Intel Quad Core i7 processor and switchable AMD graphics, this aluminum-bodied speedster (starting at $1,099) packs both a 7,200-rpm&nbsp; hard drive and a 120GB SSD to give shoppers the best of both worlds. On the other hand, the $1,604 asking price for our configuration is hardly chump change. Is the dv7t Quad Edition splurge-worthy?"</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1309195130.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Most people pick notebooks because they are portable, light and flexible.&nbsp; Most notebooks do that job well.&nbsp; However, there are some people want an incredible powerhouse and that is where the HP dv7t Quad Edition comes in.&nbsp; There are several manufacturers that make desktop replacements and all come with a beefy CPU, a beefy GPU and usually, a beefy design.&nbsp; A second generation Core i7 CPU and a higher end mobile video card means the HP dv7t will crunch through anything you will likely need, bolstered by a SSD.&nbsp; With options like this, is there a practical reason why desktops still exist?</p>
