HP g71-447us Laptop with Intel Pentium Review

This HP laptop comes with Intel dual-core Pentium Processor model T4400.  This is bit on the old side as far as processors go. The processor has 1 MB of L2 cache and runs at 2.2 GHz. It’s a 64-bit processor with an 800 MHz front-side bus.  This is not the most-recently released i3 processor, and does not have as good of performance as those processors. It is still a powerful processor and should be suitable for most daily tasks. This laptop comes with 3GB of memory and can be expanded to 4GB.

The screen is a 17.3″ LED high-definition BrightView widescreen display with a resolution of 1600×900.  That’s good resolution and gives you an aspect ratio of 16:9.  The display is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which uses shared video memory (up to 1309MB allocated from the system memory). The card supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming though with shared memory you probably won’t get great performance on the latest ones.

For storage you get a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 7200rpm.  That’s a bit on the small size, but should still be plenty big enough for you.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  The media reader slot is a 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, or xD Picture cards.

For networking you get a standard 10/100 Ethernet adapter for your wired connections.  For wireless you get an 802.11 b/g/n adapter.  Nothing very special there. You do get a webcam with microphone for videochatting at  least.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 VGA port, 1 RJ-11 modem, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in port.

This laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Cyberlink Power DVD; Adobe Reader; Microsoft Works and more.

This laptop measures 16.24″x10.90″x1.42″/1.77″ and weighs 6.72 pounds.
