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.
Awesome laptop. Installed Crucial 238 solid state drive
Smart Buyer "honest shopper", Amazon
24 October 2014
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: Great laptop. Have had minor bugs over years but have always been fixed. When you buy warranty and have major problem with laptop, it takes a month or so to get it fixed and returned. Transfer files so you never lose time.
Summary: This is my personal computer and my work computer and has been for 5 years now. I am amazed that a computer that cost me 500 has lasted me longer than laptops that have cost 1500. Granted, battery sucks, but I rarely use it off the charger, anyway.
Summary: I purchased my G72 over a year ago and it has and is serving me well. I use wifi and dial up internet services and this laptop handles them both great. I take it to work in the oilfield whenever I need to finish projects and it performs great in harsh conditions.
Summary: This computer has been very reliable and has served without problems. For a 17.2 inch screen, it is very compact and lightweight, like having a traveling desktop computer. I would not hesitate to recommend.
