You need to understand where I'm coming from - my most recent computer was running a Pentium 4 with 512MB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive. That being said this computer is a significant step up, and I think it's great. I think it's also important to know what I'm using this computer for....I work in a hospital and use this to log on to the hospital system, use Microsoft Office, and surf the internet. For these applications this computer is perfect. I've had it for about 1 month and have had no issues. It does come loaded with a bunch of HP software which can be uninstalled so that's not a problem.

The battery is listed as 4 probably doesn't last that long - I haven't officially timed the battery life but it's probably closer to 3 hrs. The case is plastic, the cold startup time is fast <30 sec, the wake from hibernate time is close to 3 seconds, the display is clear; the keyboard is easy to type on. The only thing that took me some time to get used to is the touchpad as it does not have any defined boundaries and the buttons are a little stiff. I seemed to have gotten use to both and for me they are minor issues.

I think the computer is ideal for any student or person who has similar tasks to the mine (listed above - probably the vast majority of people). I'm not a gamer and don't intend on using this for playing high intensity video games or doing a lot of photo/video/music editing. This computer is probably not suited for that type of work.

Overall I'm very happy with the product. I think for the money (paid $420 pretax) its hard to beat.

Verified Purchase
I'm really pleased with the purchase of this laptop. One thing to realize is that it's not the fastest or thinnest/lightest laptop out there. It's pretty much a standard laptop, with modest specs, but it does all many of the functions that a basic computer user out there is looking for.

Nice keyboard - chicklet style, easy to type on
Touchpad response is smooth and easy to use (note: see con on touchpad below)
Good screen clarity
Speedy enough for most tasks (internet, word processing)
Wireless connection was strong, fast
Fan is quiet and unobtrusive
Doesn't get very hot when on your lap

Case design very basic (rubberized?) and not all that attractive
Touchpad button is stiff - Hard to push
Too much HP software installed - Some of this will appeal to the novice user who may like all the toolbars, picture managers, dvd players, and software update programs installed.

At first it seemed as if the screen was a bit blurry, but then I realized it was the opening HP setup window that looked bad. It's not designed for the optimal screen resolution of the LCD panel. I don't know why HP doesn't fix this, as it's the 2nd time that I've noticed this on HP laptops. The screen looks nice in Windows 7.

I'll try and update this review a bit more once I have more time with the laptop, including battery life.

Overall, a nice machine in this price range. You can find similar specs across the board with the different manufactures of laptops, but this would be a quality choice.

First of all this is a very good laptop for the price. Second if you buy it at the Amazon price during a holiday season you have been robbed. I bought it at Staples for $424 after rebate and the 100 dollars they knocked off when I traded in my old laptop. This was my first time using windows 7 and it works like a dream on this laptop. While not a gaming computer it is fast enough for some of the simpler online MPGs. I actually got dizzy with how well it kept up with game graphics. My only issue is I wish I could get a 500 Gb hardrive but you can always buy one later at a reasonable price. It is also a great workhorse laptop. I do freelance writing and this computer is a pleasure to work on and helps me find and organize files easily. The mouse pad is iffy and I wish they kept the left and right click mousepad buttons separate. Otherwise was one purchase I am very satisfied with. Further tip if you are a college student wanting to get the most out of windows software you should order college edition of Microsoft Office 2010 it will give you all the office software for professional at a home edition price.

Bought this as replacement for my Dell Inspiron 600m. Loved that one but it start falling apart so traded it in for new G62.
Pros: Very good price/value ratio. Bright screen, decent keyboard. Pretty fast for regular tasks (office/web)
Web cam, card reader, HDMI.

Cons: Touch pad could be better, it is a bit stiff especially buttons. (But I am using mostly regular mouse with it anyway). Screen is to glossy in my opinion. And resolution is not very high (standard for this price range ).

Edit: Another con: A lot of "crapware" to remove from the start, no option to recover clean OS.

Bought mine from Office Depot. Cleaned all the HP crap off and tuned things up a bit (removed aero effects and optimized for performance). Here are the Exerience index scores compared to my custom I7 overclocked/nVidia GT4600 graphics/6GB memory/4 Velociraptor in RAID 10:
processor 7.5 5.3
memory 7.6 5.5
graphics 6.8 4.1
gaming grap. 6.8 5.2
primary HD 6.3 5.9
Pretty great for a bottom end machine! Very good screen with ample brightness. Only negative is the stiff touchpad keys but one can work around that with the Synaptics settings.
