HP Pavilion G4: 14-inch Laptop, Netbook Price

 

Netbook, schmetbook. If you were thinking of going undersize just because netbooks are cheap, take a look at the HP Pavilion G4 (model 1215dx) instead. At $379 (as of November 7, 2011), this Best Buy-only, all-purpose laptop with a 14-inch,...

Extremely affordable ; Suprisingly good keyboard

So-so WorldBench performance ; No USB 3.0 or eSATA

Just say no to netbooks with this amazingly affordable, and far more usable all-purpose laptop.

Editor's Choice!

HP Pavilion g4

 

The HP Pavilion g4 can adequately handle light computing tasks, and its rock-bottom price is hard to beat.

Great audio ; Wide viewing angles ; Attractive looks ; Comfortable keyboard

Dull colors ; Relatively short battery life

Bargain hunters who don't have a lot of computing demands beyond surfing the web, checking e-mail, some multimedia streaming, and light productivity/office tasks will find a lot to like in the HP Pavilion g4. With an attractive design, a spacious...

HP Pavilion g4-1215dx

 

If you're going to make a budget laptop, you'd better get your price right. That's the best thing about the HP Pavilion g4-1215dx: a $379 price that makes this easily one of the most wallet-friendly 14-inchers we've come across.

The HP Pavilion g4-1215dx has a great price, an attractive-for-the-price design, and better-than-average speakers, as well as enough graphics performance to play basic games.

A slower-performing AMD A4 processor is better than other bargain-basement processors, but less powerful than Intel's Core i3; screen colors look washed out; battery life is merely average.

Budget shoppers take note: the extremely aggressively priced HP Pavilion g4-1215dx is a worthwhile laptop pick for those who want a basic, cheap computer. It's hard to find a decent laptop for less--and we've seen lesser laptops that cost more.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

HP Pavilion g4-1215dx

 

Not long ago, the budget-laptop shelves were a forlorn wasteland. Shop for a bargain-basement notebook, and you could uniformly expect machines with older parts inside horribly chunky and cheap chassis. Because of that, our general recommendation was...

Surprisingly inexpensive ; Respectable performance for the price ; Attractive, sturdy design ; Comfortable keyboard

No USB 3.0 ; Disappointing Webcam

A full-size laptop at a netbook price, the $349 Pavilion g4-1215dx delivers an outstanding mix of design and performance for the money. You won't find a faster or better-equipped laptop for less.

"Great value. It just works."

 

I needed a basic laptop with long battery life for long flights and small presentations where i use the laptop display. This meets all of my needs. Simple design, not too much stupid software added. I put on OpenOffice and i'm all set now.

Very good value, long battery life, simple form factor and design.

None really, except that i couldn't find it on sale somewhere, but purchasing at Best Buy was fine.

Don't buy this or any HP Product

 

I am having problems with warranty coverage of my HP Pavilion G4 notebook computer. I sent it to their service center, about a week ago, under warranty, for an internal crack in the display that began showing up less than 2 months after I purchased it...

Inexpensive

Poor quality & Even Worse Warranty Service

Worst laptop I have ever owned

 

I've owned this computer for about 11 months. It just died on me as I was using Word... It NEVER worked well. Always painfully slow and overheating. I thought I was upgrading from a Compaq... but man have I missed my cheaper Compaq that worked soooo...

compact, light

SLOW, can't handle much at all (don't try using more than 1 browser and better limit your usage to one page at a time), OVERHEATS, hard drive dies after less than 1 year, computer hangs or stops responding on an almost constant basis, comes loaded with...

HP Pavilion g4-1226nr Notebook PC, charcoal

 

I am really pleased with my purchase of this computer. It is so much lighter-weight than my last one and yet still a good size for doing a great deal of work on it as I do. I have been so pleased with its various features as well. A great value for money!
