It's a very nice little package, and one we'd be proud to own for the price. We wouldn't actually tell anyone it was so cheap, of course. No. A screen this big and defined belongs in a much more expensive machine.

The HP G72-a10SA is a fair replacement for a desktop PC. The size, weight and battery life mean it's not portable, but it coped fine with playing DVDs and internet video, as well as general office and internet use. Unlike most larger laptops it's no good for gamers but otherwise it's reasonable value.

We appreciated the G72-a10SA's strong feature set considering the low price, while the colourful display is excellent for anyone wishing to watch movies or view photos. Portability and performance are limited, however, so this is best used as a basic home office machine.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
P6000: The Pentium P6000 is an entry level CPU based on the Arrandale core.
