      Disadvantages

      Excellent value for money

      The HP Pavilion G series is available in several colours. My parents bought me the red one for Christmas as my flat is all red and black. Visually it is very good, the screen size is perfect for watching films and working, and the keyboard is large enough for the those of us with chunkier fingers. I'm not all that technical so I can't use all the correct terms, but the running speed on this laptop is great. My previous laptop was only 2 years old but this one is so much faster. The basic software is ample for your daily needs. The laptop is quite light (obviously not as light as a netbook) but its slim design makes it manageable for travel. Setting up my laptop was quick and easy, and the few games which were free entertained my neice for hours. I prefer Windows over Mac and other operators, but I suppose it is to your individual taste. The battery life on this laptop is fantastic, I can go about 4-5 hours of using the internet without it dying, obviously a lot longer if I am not doing so much on it. I am yet to find any problems with this laptop, however I will update my review once I do.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good, but not great

        I bought this laptop to take into school everyday. The two main criteria were that it had to be lightweight and have the capacity to store large amounts memory-intensive files.

        So I shall start with this. The laptop is light enough to carry around in a backpack or laptop bag slung over the shoulder, although it begins to get a little heavy when I carry around books etc too. Still, gives my muslces a bit of toning I suppose. You also have to offest this against the good size screen and decent keyboard, which lighter (and therefore smaller) laptops and netbooks do not have.

        For the first month of use the cooling fan was silent. Now it emits a loud noise; noisier than my PC. I will update this review when I have discovered what it is, in case it is a design flaw. The battery life is long - it lasts me the whole working day and the evenings. On the other hand, the battery life display is not good at letting me know precisely how much I have left - the numbers for battery life, as a percentage, and hours left fluctuate, even when one remains constant.

        Storage-wise. I have persistently continued to download numerous resources from the internet and write another five - ten word documents per day. I also have spreadsheets, powerpoints and photos stored. So far, the computer speed has not been impacted upon.

        On top of this it has:

        A reasonable webcam, although unuseable for official business calls on skype, but good enough for a chat to your friends and family.

        A good speaker output sound - some laptops I have used, the sound has got lost even full volume.

        In-built wi-fi is useful in removing the need for a dongle or ethernet cable. It also automatically attempts to connect to the strongest connections available.


        On the whole, I can't say anything really bad about this laptop, although it just doesn't feel like the product is quite 'there'.
