Reviews for the HP Pavilion g7-1002sg
Cubicle Fixture. Ever since its little brother got some attention as part of the "Intel TESTIT!2011" notebook testing pool, the HP Pavilion g7 Office notebook has been aching for its moment in the spotlight. For 499 Euro (RRP), Hewlett Packard is offering a 17.3" laptop with an AMD quad-core processor and Radeon HD 6470M graphics card. Does this inexpensive office notebook give you enough bang for your buck, or should you dish out for better performance?

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
P960: Slow clocked quad core CPU for mid size laptops (due to the 25 W TDP). Single threaded applications and games suffer from the low core speed.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
