Style Name: Core i5, 4GB, 500GB
I (after much searching) luckily managed to bag one of the last hp g7 laptops in stock in Britain a few weeks ago. It's slim, lightweight, pretty powerful, and is remarkably efficient at cooling.

What I like:
The processor: There is now an update to take the I5 up to a 2.7Ghz dual core, and it is the best processor I've come across in a laptop for this price, I used to have an Acer 7530g, which has a pretty hefty processor, but the g7 is in another class. There will soon be another update to kick it up to 3ghz.

The Design: As I said, it's slim, it's light, it's in a lovely colour, and it's been engineered to keep cool under every day usage.

The cooling: Well, my G7 1255sa idles at 29 degrees in power saver, and 37 in high performance, runing most tasks (video calling, low end games etc) you will very rarely see the temperature rise to much over 55, it's only when you give the 4gb of ram a good push does the temperature go up, at 80% load it'll run mid 70s, seems hot, but it cools in moments after you finish.

The Monitor: 17.3" widescreen, barely any need to use my TV, it's nice and bright, very easy to see.

The Graphics: There's around 1900Mb of graphics capability, but this is tied in with the ram, so you may want to upgrade to 6gb of ram to actually get the most out of it, but it happily runs Sonic Generations on 800x600 resolution at 4gb.

Drawbacks:

Sound quality: After having the brilliantly unreliable surround sound on my old acer, this new one looked like a godsend, but it's lacking a little prescence, either use headphones, or buy some speakers.

The rarity: At the time of writing, it is out of stock in so many places, finding one is a nightmare.

superb laptop. only got it on the 20th, but now had 3 days to play with it. Very fast with it's 4GB ram. was going to upgrade to the max 6GB, but see no need at the moment as it works great as it is. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a new laptop for everyday use. I watch sport online and it has no problem with any streaming. The HDMI port is an added bonus for streaming to your tv.

Basically an all round decent laptop with an excellent price tag..

Style Name: Pentium B950, 4GB, 500GB
It's slower than I expected taking a while to load up and Hp features are a waste of time - i.e. Magic Desktop very annoying but easy to remove. Benefits are that it barely heats up (v. good efficiency), is light, and after using 15.6" laptops an upgrade to 17.3" makes a huge difference for general browsing, watching films/ programs and boasting!

Guaranteed next day delivery: didn't come, called amazon and were helpful sending out another laptop with next day and money back but it still took a couple of days. Blame citylink Glenfifes stuff goes missing is like the bermuda triangle of scotland!

Spent quite a while comparing, i.e. against i3/5 15.6" laptops for same price, and after testing/ given the option again would probably go for this laptop again - biggest competitor was the quicker acer 17.3" but the G7 efficiency has sold it to me.

Style Name: AMD Quad Core A6-3400M, 6GB, 750GB
I bought this as a replacement for my old HP laptop (which I'd sadly destroyed by spilling tea all over it) and although this does not have the touchscreen facility of my previous one which was only 2 years old, I cannot believe how much everything else has improved! This is lightweight, quiet to use, great keyboard, quick charge time, and the battery holds its charge well, very, very fast processor speed, so great for everything!!! The screen just seems HUGE and the sound is much much better than it was on my previous laptop, although if i was going to use this to watch tv or films on a regular basis I'd use headphones

Style Name: Core i5, 4GB, 500GB
Generally very pleased with the laptop. It is lightweight, but not so light that it topples off your lap when opened up. It does not overheat or make much noise, and it is very quick to load and get on the internet.
The only irritation my wife and I find is that it is unresponsive sometimes when you use two fingers to scroll up or down. This can be annoying and we have to put the cursor on the scroll bar and hold down the left key on the pad to drag up and down - grhhh!
We have now bought a wireless mouse to overcome this annoyance, but of course we cant then use the laptop on our lap. It may be we will get more use to it and find it easier, but some guidance would have been useful.
Apart from this I am very happy with the product and would happily recommend to anyone.

I looked at virtually all the laptops available in this sort of price range before buying this model. I read all the reviews, very carefully, and eventually settled for this model. I am very pleased I did. I wanted bluetooth, and the bluetooth ia excellent. It has three USB ports, as opposed to the usual two, and an HDMI port so that I can connect to my TV, and watch dvds etc via that medium. My desktop is more than 9 years old, so this seems lightening fast in comparison ---- probably not a fair comparison!
All in all so far I am delighted with my purchase.
