HP G72-250us

 

The keyboard is exceedingly comfortable, with wide, flat keys that are comfortable and quiet. A number pad sits to the right of the keyboard, but despite having plenty of room, the G72-250us does not have a row of multimedia shortcut keys above the...

Great performance for the price. Strong battery life. Attractive design. Comfortable keyboard and touchpad. Lightweight for desktop replacement

Weak audio. No eSATA port. No Blu-ray drive

The HP G72-250us impresses with its new design and performance for the price, but tinny speakers on a big desktop replacement always ruin the fun.

HP G72-a10SA review

 

It's huge, it's cheap, but is HP's low-end 17-inch laptop any good?

Huge screen ; Good resolution ; Excellent case design ; Capable internals

Not much power ; Super-heavy construction ; Invisible trackpad ; Odd keyboard layout

A budget laptop that looks and performs like a far more expensive model

HP G72 review

 

A stylish desktop replacement laptop that looks good and plays hard; top value too

The HP G72 has much to recommend it, though. It manages to offer what few budget desktop replacements can: decent performance and a good range of features, coupled with a stylish exterior, generous screen size and surprising battery life. At £447 exc...

HP G72-227WM

 

Overall, even though it just died on me, if I can't find a replacement hard drive that is cheaper than getting the actual computer again, I won't hesitate to get another one. It's one of the best computers I've own in a long time.

Relatively lightweight, good keyboard layout, ports have easy access. It's been very fast and easy to work with, and I use it every day for work. It's perfect for watching movies/TV on or split-screening documents and webpages while I'm working. I...

Every once in a while, the CPU gets a bit overtaxed, and I have to calm it down a bit. Lately, it's been running a bit hot, so I can't have it directly on my lap anymore, but that's just a minor annoyance. The hard drive did just die for no apparent...

Great value,

 

Paid $359 Best Value out there. Looks brand new! My previous notebook was a Vista DV9700 series entertainment behemoth. 17" display and weight was in the 12-20lb class. This one does everything that did but for a 17" notebook it's light and portable!!!...

Great Computer - shoddy recertification

 

Gorgeous screen, roomy keyboard, fast CPU and plenty of RAM for everyday use. I bought this for my 60-something mother and she absolutely loves it

DDR2 Ram (should have read the specs more closely, so no markdown for that) ; More importantly, the computer came with the keyboard all messed up. The 8 key was where the 9 should be and numerous keys fall off with very light use. It literally looks...
