Reviews for the HP Pavilion g7-2220us
Source: Comp Reviews
For those looking at a low cost laptop but don't want to suffer from a small screen with low resolution, the HP Pavilion g7-2220us is an extremely attractive option that is priced under $600 dollars. Performance is not going to be a huge factor here but if it is just being used for basic tasks it works just fine. It would also be nice to see HP cut down on the amount of applications that it loads into the operating system as Windows 8's start screen is cluttered with various tiles.
