I Purchased this for my wife at Staples and she loves it. We paid only $479 and you will not find anything near this Laptop even close to that price. It offers so much, an updated I3-Core 370 processor, 500 GB HDD, 4 GB Memory and more. Compare it to anything else and it is a no brainer. I have noticed that all of the local stores have it now as a promo with these fetures and they fluxuate each week in price from $599 down to $499 depending on the store ad's. Look at your circulers people. Dont get fooled by the other G72's out there for over $600 that have the the low end processors and less HDD and Memory (Walmart etc. for the low end slower model) This is a great deal. My only complaint is the new G72s and G62s have adopted the new mouse pad which takes a little getting used to, but believe me you get used to it within a week. Very Happy with this. Check it out. You will love it. Staples, Office Depot, PC Richards all offer it and every week, they alternate from $599 and lower but each store will allow the price of the other one if you bring in the circular. I am a PC fanatic and grabbed this deal. Happy Holidays and enjoy!!!!! KJ

i bought this laptop knowing that it wasnt gonna be the best at games... i actually get pretty good graphics out of this laptop which has a built in (integrated) intel hd video. it's fast, even though it's got an i3 dual core, it performs very well. the keyboard layout is interesting, and to me, it doesnt really matter. i kinda do like it since the keyboard expands to a 10 key numberpad and the design of the laptop itself is simple. no glossy material to leave your fingerprints (if you're a thief, this may be for you! no, only kidding). anyway, the computer runs good, hardly runs hot...

processor can handle my programs well whether its games, surfing the web, listening to music, or watching a movie, its great. i love that it doesnt really get hot after hours of running or left on my bed overnight. it's actually almost always on my bed and it runs perfectly fine.

built in speakers are nice, they are altec lansing, not the beats but the built in speakers work well. i personally have a pair of altec lansing 2.1 speakers and those perform better than the built in speakers, but that's a no brainer.

i think this is a great laptop, but do your due diligence before you buy to make sure this is what you want! go to a store like fry's or best buy or staples..

I purchased this laptop at Staples on Black Friday for $499. Considering everything this is equipped with, 4GB ram, 500GB hard disk AND an HDMI output for my big screen TV. You just simply can't beat the configuration for the money. The only negatives are that both the touch pad and keyboard get some taking used to. The touch pad is hidden in the palm rest and is textured. It requires some practice to get the right touch. The keyboard is slightly offset to the left to accommodate the number pad. Battery life is about 2 - 2.5 hrs of normal usage -- not great but usable. If you can find it for the same price, get it!

Bought the computer from one of those Amazon fullfilled retailers. First, I had a problem ordering it because, after placing the order, Amazon told me their stock in the website was wrong and they didn't have it anymore! Sorry, and that was all! Decided to order again, form another fulfilled retailer, and it arrived OK. Open it, turned it on, installed windows, office, everything great. Next day, tried to turn it on, and nothing! No humming sound, nothing, completely dead. Funny thing, once this happened I thought these things today are all made in China... and when I looked at the box, this computer really was manufactured in China! Contacted HP support, told me I should return it to the retailer.

I bought this laptop because of the 17 inch wide screen which is exceptional. My husband played on my computer and loved it. When his laptop recently ceased to function, he was quick to purchase the same computer I had for himself. It has everything we need or could possibly want. Good transaction all the way around. 5 stars without question.

Have had it for over two years, no problems whatsoever. When I first bought it, I fell in love with the bright LED screen and I still love watching videos on this screen, the nicest I ever had.Love the 17.3inch size and the bisque case, leaves no fingerprint marks and has a nice texture. For its size, it is thin and very sleek looking and at 6.6 lbs, not too heavy. Audio is so,so. Speed is excellent, I upgraded to 6gb RAM, transferring files, downloading, running several programs at once is no issue, its just very fast. I dropped it a couple of times and it still works like a charm. I was surprised it did not have bluetooth. I had to buy a BT adapter for it, not expensive but a hassle to carry around an extra gadget, would have been nice to have it inside the machine. Overall,I've always had Toshiba's before with several HDD problems and this my first HP and I'm impressed.

Awesome laptop. Installed Crucial 238 solid state drive, Crucial 8GB of ram, and also upgraded the CPU from stock i3-370M to i7-620M. Boot up is insanely fast. Takes about 20 from the moment that I power it on to the time that I am on the internet. Plan on getting 512 Crucial SSD or another SSD. Only pet peeves is lack of dual band wifi which could be remedied with USB dual band and lack of Bluetooth due to mini pci network card that comes stock with the system. Only thing left is to change the network card to a Bluetooth type and upgrade the SSD.
