Best computer for the money,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HP g6-1d60us (15.6-Inch Screen) Laptop (Personal Computers)I am 16. I have built three computers from parts, and have a small side business fixing computers. My old laptop recently died on me, and my parents purchased me a netbook for school. Perhaps i am spoiled by my six core desktop, but my super slow netbook was unacceptable for me. I did some research, and found on that my my needs/wants. This laptop has almost instant response time, runs windows 7 64 bit, and has half a gig of video card memory. I was a little wary of the idea of splitting the CPU between a graphics card and the main CPU processes, but i have had no problems with that. It can play all the games i own, and will usually put new games on high settings, but some times i lower the settings back down to medium to avoid the rare lag that occurs. I have played Modern Warfare 3, Dawn of War II, Civilization V, Supreme commander 2, and TF2 without any issues. I can see using this laptop for the next 3 or 4 years. And at only $430, this is a great deal.

I have a question, does this laptop includes the ful version of Microsoft Office 2010 or it has only a free trial? Do you have to pay extra money for the full version? Thanks

Alvaro Diaz: Computers that say Microsoft Office is included almost always are free trial only. Assume you will ALWAYS have to buy Microsoft Office separately. Consider Open Office instead (Google it). Open Office is free and even opens and saves into Microsoft formats. I use it and now I'm not sure I ever want to go back to paying an extra $100+ each time I buy a new computer.

Yeah, it does not include a full version of Microsoft office, not that that matters much anyway, I use Oracle's (the makers of the common programing language Java) Open Office, it includes all the same features, and it is free.
