A stylish desktop replacement laptop that looks good and plays hard; top value too.

The HP G72-250us ($749.98 list) costs and weighs less than most desktop replacement laptops while offering close to the same application performance as its higher-end 17.3-inch competitors. Unfortunately, the audio output is weak, which is all the more disappointing considering its intended use as an entertainment laptop. The G72-250us, sold at Staples, boasts an updated design, part of HP's latest laptop makeover. Inside, it features an Intel Core i3 processor, which serves up excellent performance for the price. There are better options for multimedia consumption, but for general home use, the HP G72-250us offers up a big screen, an attractive design, and ample performance for a fair price.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
