Summary: The G72 was a great laptop for the price, as it was available for about a $600 outlay at your local Walmart. You knew going in that this wasn't going to be a laptop that would run the newest games or absolutely blaze speed-wise, but it sufficed for me for about five years.
Summary: This is a fantastic laptop. First, I love the styling. Secondly, the large screen is a huge plus when you need a lot of screen "real estate." It's fast. The webcam is very clear and works fast. The image isn't choppy like some other cameras. I also like having a separate number pad.
Summary: First, the laptop came expertly wrapped and packaged when I received it. Second, the laptop was clean, and even had clear protective peel off coating paper on screen and shell of laptop. Third, the laptop worked flawlessly just like it was a brand new one. Love the 17.3 large screen and sound.

Summary: 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.

Summary: This was my son's computer for four years during high school. He is now a freshamn at Georgia Tech in Chemical engineering. I say this because he used this computer for a wide variety of things.
Summary: I bought this laptop in June. I did my research on laptops with similar specs. So I think it goes without saying that if you buy ANY computer, you should do your own research and see if it would fit your needs.
