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. I upgraded to 8 gigs of ram and every 2 years I do a fresh install. Everything is perfect with this thing, even after all these years.
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. I recommend the G72 as it gets the job done. I have had no problems with it and will continue to use it at home, work and on the go.
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.
Summary: I've had this computer since November of 2010, and I remind myself how lucky I was to buy this on Black Friday for just $450. I got mine from staples and I haven't looked back or regretted this purchase. This replaced my toshiba a105-s2061 after a long 4 years, it was bound to die at any moment (although, I wish it didn't because the files from my online classes were on it). I saw this on the black friday ads and I jumped at the opportunity to buy it.
Summary: I bought this computer in early 2010 afer using another HP laptop for around 3-4 years. The old laptop would get very hot and fan would be blowing very high and then it would shutdown out of nowhere, I assume from overheating. I was lucky enough to find somebody to buy it from me and put that money towards this G72-B60US, and boy I'm glad I did. So far I have not had any issues with this laptop and I have had it for a little over a year.
Summary: Before Christmas I researched all laptops at the time and found the " HP G72-250US 17.3-Inch Laptop" to be the best buy at the time, $550. It has all the specs of any other brand w/ Intel Core i3-350M processor; 4GB DDR3 System Memory - Max supported = 8GB; 320GB Hard Drive; Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with a 17.3" screen. The only difference was the price I paid on Dec of 2010. Santa found it on a sale here at Amazon.
Summary: I love this laptop because it has a big display, great graphics, just all around amazing. However, I was lucky enough to nab one of these from Walmart's Black Friday Sale last year.. & only paid like $300. It is an amazing laptop by far! I grew-up with Dell.. and let me just say this, "In my opinion, HP makes far better machines.
