not bad, but....

#1 I hate beats audio, IMO it doesnt sound that great.

#2 GDDR3 versions of the HD 7570M exist, and they are roughly 20% slower then the GDDR5 varients. so depending what you get, you could be gimped/handycapped from the getgo.
Obviously HP wont give you that information unless you buy the laptop yourself and use GPUZ on it

On their website it the Pavilion dm4-3090eo is listed and it says "AMD Radeon HD 7470M (1 GB DDR5)" so they could very well provide that info.

EDIT: Seems like they indeed to provide it, at least on the swedish site. On all laptops the kind of memory is specified, unless it's Intel.

interesting choice - so weak GPU and with gddr5, and even more interesting is that IGP 4000 (Ivy's integrated) should be even better than this weak/cheap discrete 7470m, of course no one has tested IGP 4000 jet, but usually this site (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000.69168.0.html) knows something about mobile graphics...
