Summary: This unit came without a hard drive but functioned OK. I was able to get an image from a similar model onto a 1T hard drive which I installed in the unit. Ran the image and everything came up perfect except for the WiFi adapter which was different. Got the right driver from HP site, installed it and then found that the USB port to the right side was not functioning. Opened up the unit to find the cable was not connected.
Summary: It's a Great laptop. I have loved using the laptop but I am glad I got the warrant with it because I did find out that the mouse pad it bad. After using it for a while the mouse pad start going crazy and you lose control of your mouse. It is almost as if it is overheating. I need to send it in the have it fixed. If I did not have the warrant, I would be rather upset.
Summary: We've had our G72 for about 3 years now. ***Love*** the screen, big and bright. Batteries last "ok". (gotta run that big a** display...) Like the soft-clicky keyboard, which would be perfect IF the space bar didn't keep falling off!! (and we do not abuse our keyboard!) Speaking of the keyboard, bought this type model so we'd have the 10-key on the right, (I use it ALL the time.) and lots of real estate for wrists.
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: This notebook is a great buy! It's not too expensive, but is easy to learn on and easy to use. The programs are great and the quality of the screen and quality of the overall computer is great. It is definately something I would recommend.
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. The most important features for me were price, ability to replace my desktop, portability, and design. Although portability and replacing a desktop seem like oxymoron, I found that this laptop had met my expectationsI purchased this laptop at Office Depot when they were having a sale for 30% off if you open a new...
Excerpt: I have th 17 inch hp laptop and am very excited with its capabilities. I believe i learn something new every day that i can do on it. My ten year old is ahead of me in exploring its uses,but i'm learning. The teaching modules are perfect for a beginner like myself and yet challenging to my more proficient friends. I don't wanta share my laptop with anyone else i'm so excited to use 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.
