HP G56 - Great Price, Good laptop with a couple of niggles!!
Member Name: Tiara_Maker
Advantages: Good Price, Good basic laptop, Good memory capacity and fast loading.
Disadvantages: A couple of niggles with bothersome keys and sticky mouse pad
I bought this laptop after my old one gave up the ghost. I didn't have a lot of money to spend on one and as I basically only use it for email and internet, it didn't need to be too technical. This laptop completely fits the bill. I paid £320 it it delivered from HP direct. It's got ample memory and is fast to load... Perfect apart from a couple of things. The 1st annoying bit of it is that the mouse pad is very stiff and difficult to use. I gave up with it and now use a mouse instead. The onther little irritance is that there is a column of short cut keys down the left hand side which i keep catching when I hit the caps lock key etc which brings a wprint window up. After a few weeks of using it I'm getting more used to it though and am managing to avoid doing this so often. I suppose every keyboard has a slightly different layout. All in all though a nice laptop at a nice price. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good basic machine.
Summary: A Good Basic laptop for those not needing anything fancy. Does the job!
