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":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
