Summary: I'm giving this 4 stars because performance wise, this laptop has done a very good job. I do a lot of graphic designing along with writing tons of paperwork for school, so I needed a laptop that could do both. This laptop has enough resources to do them fairly well.
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.
