Summary: I bought this laptop at Staples in Feb 2011 for $499. Which is with a $100 instant rebate and they also gave me a $50 mail in rebate so actually I only paid $449. It come with one heck of a warranty... I have had basically everything replaced on this computer, hard drive, motherboard, webcam microphone, keyboard, and various other things I can't think of at the moment, but all for free under HP 1 year warranty. after all the bugs got worked out, it runs very well!!
Summary: I've had this laptop for a few years now, and it sees daily use. I take it everywhere with me, and it only gets used outside of the house. I've broken it, fixed it, cleaned it, dropped it, and am currently working on a problem with overheating. The downside to this laptop is that it is a pain to clean the dust out of.
Excerpt: This laptop is well priced and its very reliable. HP itself is a very trusted and reliable brand, it is affordable and a brand that my family and I have trusted for years. We brought computers and laptops from HP and we have been happy ever since, we never switched to another laptop or computer brand and we are happy with this.

Excerpt: I bought this laptop to replace the ancient computer that I've been using since 2006 and the laptop that broke back in October when I spilled coffee on it.

Excerpt: The computer is rather large and does not fit in most computer bags. But the large screen allows me to see more and I need to see more because I rehab homes and rent to low income families. It only cost abotu 469 after the rebate. It doesn't run hot and it shuts down when not in use for a few minutes. It has the 10-key numerical pad that allows me to enter budgeting facts a lot easier.
Excerpt: I had just started a new teaching job when our home was struck by lightening and damaged our desktop computer along with about ten other high cost items in our home including the a/c and heating unit. I had to have my computer to get my school work ready but most all of my work was stored in my damaged computer.

Excerpt: I purchased this HP G72 just a couple months ago, on a great sale and have found it to be worth every penny that I paid. I'm still learning what it all can do for me, and am finding more everyday. I had an older Dell model, with this HP I'm able to watch a movie, and to download DVD's that I was unable to do on my old computer. I love the 17 inch screen, even the weight is much lighter then my old 14 inch Dell.
