The HP G56-116SA really is a beauty, both aesthetically and performance wise. What struck me most about it was its sheer quick pocessing speed, with 4GB RAM. From the intial installation of programs to the starting up of it to this day, it has proven ultra quick, especially in comparison to my last Toshiba laptop. This HP model has rather impressed me and has certainly been a brilliant replacement and upgrade. Speed is an important aspect to computing for me. This is a huge reason why I think this model of laptop is brilliant, as it allows you to have multiple programs running at once and carry out tasks quickly, and all without the computer freezing up, resulting in you frustratingly having to restart what you're in the middle of!
At first, I found it strange having a narrow screen with it being LCD; it has quite a different appearance and feel to what i'm used to, but relooking at my old model, I definitely think this is an improvement, obviously for its better picture quality, but also for its compact appearance too. I also notcied how light this laptop feels - in comparison to my old one anyway. The black finish gives it a smart look ready for any use.
I've had this laptop for a few months now and i've transferred over all my files from my last computer and everything else and i've still only used up a quarter of its memory - so I think the 500GB of memory will keep me busy for a while!
A perfect balance of technology and appearance, this notebook makes it easy to do more and stay connected. This is the first choice for a worry-free PC experience, at a price you can afford.
