Fantastic deal, surely the hottest laptop this week. The resale potential of a core i3 with a 17.3" HD screen and HP branding promises almost all your money back if you decide to sell after a year or so of evaluating this new (2010) technology.
#3
There is no compromise here for the casual gamer in us, integrated Intel HD graphics ensure a low cost and suitability for both applications and video. Enough features to replace your desktop tower or box.

I've seen similarly specced and priced laptops refurbished on eBay but they don't stick around for long. Hence the resale potential- although the Classifieds don't demand commission.

I won't comment on the HP brand other than to say that like every manufacturer they occassionally shift the odd duff unit but that is more down to luck than lax quality control at the factory. Oh, and their Proliant Microserver receives critical acclaim here and elsewhere along with their other high end products.

The click button is also very stiff.

As it is on my Acer One Aspire, but I usually just tap the touchpad to avoid reaching for the buttons.

Can you speak for the whole product line, just your HP G72, or a similar HP laptop?
#5
Great spec at a great price.

Heat added.
#6
I got this one and it's a good machine. Very stable. Touch pad is hit and miss but you get used to it.
#7
So tempted with this but concerned about the touch pad as I have reviously returned a HP due to problems with its touch pad albeit it was a different type. looks like a quick trip to the shops to have a try before I decide to buy!!!!!!

...you are right if you like touchpad or keyboard is very subjective its more individual opinion, the best thing to do is try it on shop display unit (currys, john lewis) and then decide whether you like it or not

Looks a good deal though crosswski, Heat added, maybe I am too picky but just want to get this purchase right after losing out on getting cashback on my old laptop by having to return the last HP !!!

I had an HP with touchpad and it broke after about 6 months but the hard drive went even quicker and I couldn't be a$$ed sending it back again only for the numpties to scratch up my restore cds and god knows what else. That was the 90's though. I got used to a mouse and I think everyone does, just went back to my 90's desktop last night and using a moveable mouse was a real pleasure in comparison to my Acer One.

DDR3 800MHz. 7200rpm hard drive.

That's unusual.

I have one of these and it is great. Voted hot.

I bought this one from Argos for £499. Body material is worse then Made in China DVD player. Hard drive crashed after 6 days :-(
#15
anyone know when this code runs out? I was about to order a HP yesterday and ti came to me they are pretty much Compaq machines as theyre the same company they will be very much similar so was going to go for a vaio but will probably decide on monday now!

This makes little sense

What's the Screen quality like? I have a older HP and my Dell 17" WLed screen knocks spots off it.
Would use it for photo editing, so needs a decent screen.

HP build quality is not like it used to be!

nice spec, only thing annoying that is missing is gigabit ethernet, i wish they would stop making 10/100 ethernet ports :(

I bought this laptop from comet 6 months ago for £380 with £20 cashback (but only had 2gb ram instead of 3gb)
Nice smooth laptop and not had problems with it so far - only the mouse click is a bit hard but i just end up tapping on the mouse pad instead

Nice find! Heat added!!

I have an almost identical model - G72-110SA.
Good points - screen is fantastic, great hard drive (Western Digital Scorpio Black series), battery ok.
Bad points - touch pad is useable, probably not the worst touch pad I've ever used but it's getting there. The touch pad buttons take a fair bit of getting used to as you need to press then right at the end to get them to register. I can see why some people won't not get on with the touchpad, definately not a great design.
Build quality is on a par with everything else at this price, no better no worse - it's no mac book air but it's a third of the price
I paid £320 for mine in February which was a steal and this deal is still a pretty good price.
#26
Woah. Nice price on this one, for the spec and size.

I've gotta say, I'm with the majority here that the build quality and design of the HP laptops is pretty bad at the moment - the keyboards are bad too: they just don't feel good to type on.

Sticking with my XPS 17 (granted it's much higher spec than this one haha :D)

Cannot find one for this deal laptop.

EDIT: HP don't offer an an extended warranty with this laptop. BUYER BEWARE.

Any one knows if these 3GB memory run in DDR mode? I always thought that you need one pair of same speed, CL and capacity to use DDR mode. Also it seemed to be a bit inefficient to have a 64bit Windows with 3GB memory as 64bit can use above 3.5GB memory.
suspended#29
@splender, 4gb costs more than 3gb! 64bit's advantages aren't only the ability to use more memory.

The issue with the Intel 6 series was resolved very shortly after launch... shouldn't be an issue anymore.

Why do they stick a puny 320gb hard drive in when you can get terrabyte ones for £30-40?

2.5" 1TB laptop hard drive for £30-£40?

Where from ?

HP Business Laptops - very good
HP Residential Laptops - made to fail

sure it looks nice but do budget for it breaking 24 months from now :)

I am looking for a reasonably powerful laptop to try running OSX on it. I have heard that it can be done but I have never tried it. This might be a good laptop to try it on however, I cannot believe that it doesn't have gigabit. That would make my whole setup run more slowly.
#38
I have one of these, it has a bad trackpad, (will need a mouse) apart from that its good and will do most basic tasks flawlessly.
#39
Why is it that laptopn with 17" screen doesn't normally have good graphic cards, while plenty of small 15" have graphic card :(

1 TB disk ? For £30-£40, that's found in a desktop PC. I wouldn't use that on your lap.
