    But I have a doubt of whether the graphic card or the driver supports the same.
    The HM55 switchable graphics systems bootup with the Intel IGP AND the ATI GPU enabled with the IGP as primary. If the IGP isn't enabled on boot then there is no way to switch if over using the standard ATI drivers. I'd assume the HM65 system will use a similar setup.

    CES: Touch pad of the future: Hands-on with Synaptics' ClickPad Series 3.0 - CES 2011 CNET Blogs

    The article talks about a new generation of clickpads. My friend also has a dv7 and I couldn't get over the integrated buttons. Does the new laptop have this new clickpad?
