HP Pavilion 17-e117dx is a desktop replacement with affordable price. It's powered by Intel Core i3-3110M dual-core processor at 2.6 GHz with 3 MB of L3 cache. This Hewlett-Packard notebook is equipped with 750GB HDD at 5400RPM and 4GB DDR3L system memory. Display on this Pavilion is 17.3-inch with HD+ resolution, a standard minimum resolution for a 17.3-inch screen.
Large dimensions (because of the screen size) allows it to have all standard ports.

The left side has a VGA port, a fan exhaust, an HDMI port, a USB port, a combo audio jack, an SD card reader, and a memory card reader.
A thickness of 1.3-inch and a weight of 6.4 lbs make it's rather uncomfortable to carry it. 10/100 base-T Ethernet LAN and 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN, very basic connectivity features for a notebook PC today, are available on this notebook . Full-size backlit keyboard with numeric keypad makes it easy to input numeric and typing in dim lighting conditions.
