Pros: Very large screen, good performance for internet browsing and work
Cons: - Eight of the keys (letters, punctuation) are misplaced on the keyboard. Because I am a proficient typist I usually don't notice, but it could be extremely problematic for someone less proficient at typing. - The space bar key can be sticky at times. - The computer often gives me electric shocks...
Summary: Overall, even though it just died on me, if I can't find a replacement hard drive that is cheaper than getting the actual computer again, I won't hesitate to get another one. It's one of the best computers I've own in a long time.
Pros: Relatively lightweight, good keyboard layout, ports have easy access. It's been very fast and easy to work with, and I use it every day for work. It's perfect for watching movies/TV on or split-screening documents and webpages while I'm working. I might overtax it sometimes, but it's always been ...
Cons: Every once in a while, the CPU gets a bit overtaxed, and I have to calm it down a bit. Lately, it's been running a bit hot, so I can't have it directly on my lap anymore, but that's just a minor annoyance. The hard drive did just die for no apparent reason, which is not okay, and I don't know why...
Summary: Paid $359 Best Value out there. Looks brand new! My previous notebook was a Vista DV9700 series entertainment behemoth. 17" display and weight was in the 12-20lb class. This one does everything that did but for a 17" notebook it's light and portable!!! Wifi is extremely sensitive.
Pros: Value, size, display, keyboard, wifi,ease of use.
Cons: Features are sparse, Specs are budget minded. Expand-ability.
Summary: Refurbished HP Laptop works well and this computer was a great buy and money saver. The outter case is sleek and computer was easy to set up. This one came only with power cord but still a good deal.
HP refurb 17.3" G72 is WONDERFUL! Best Value confirmed
17 September 2011
Summary: We were not sure about purchasing a refurbished laptop, but with my husband using it on deployments it was imperative he have one AND that we not spend a fortune - just in case. Setup was easy, everything is working just great!
Summary: I was lucky and got this for about $380 on sale here. I'm not sure I would pay $550 for it, just because of the atrocious integrated graphics. There's no webcam, in case that sort of thing matters to you.
Pros: Gorgeous screen, wireless-n, dual-core 2.3 GHz... there are few everyday computing tasks I throw at it that it doesn't take like a champ. The keyboard is quite roomy, and does not feel like a laptop keyboard at all. The numberpad is a great addition, although I've gotten so used to not having one...
Cons: This may be an issue of personal preference, but I really dislike the touchpad. It has a single bar for both right- and left-clicking, and the boundaries of the actual pad are not marked in any way. The entire area below the keyboard is the same texture - I've had some problems "losing" the pad, ...
Summary: LOOKS LIKE A NEW ONE. WORKS GREAT. 17 INCH IS SO MUCH EASIER TO SEE. VERY SMOOTH AND FAST COMPARED TO 3 YR OLD LAPTOP THIS REPLACES. NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT IT. ONLY 4 STARS BECAUSE NOTHING IS PERFECT.
