HP G72-251NR Notebook PC with Intel Pentium Processor

The Intel inside is the Pentium (Model: T4500).  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.3GHz.  It has an 800MHz front-side bus and 1MB of L2 cache.  The laptop comes with 3GB of DDR3 memory with a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 17.3” diagonal High Definition+ HP BrightView LED display with a resolution of 1600×900.  That’s an easy to calculate 16:9 aspect ratio and big enough for native 720p content (but not quite enough for 1080p).  The display is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which uses shared video memory (up to 1309 MB 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 320GB hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  Not the fastest drive, but it’s a decent size for your digital photos, music, games and more. The optical drive is a LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support.  For a little bit extra storage, or for getting pictures from your digital camera you can use the 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 can use the integrated 10/100 Ethernet port for all your wired web surfing.  If you want to be free of cables you can use the 802.11 b/g/n adapter for that surfing at Starbucks.  External ports include 3 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0, 1 HDMI, 1 VGA (15-pin), 1 RJ -45 (LAN), 1 Headphone-out, and 1 Microphone-in.

This notebook comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Symantec Norton Internet Security 2010 60-day Trial,  HP Support Assistant, HP Recovery Manager, Sun Java, HP Advisor, HP Set Up, Rhapsody Music Store, eBay, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Cyberlink Power DVD; Cyberlink YouCam; Cyberlink MediaShow, Cyberlink DVD, Adobe Reader; Adobe Flash, HP Games Powered by Wild Tangent, Roxio CinemaNow; Snapfish Picture Mover; HP Photo Creation, and Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student 60-day Trial.

The laptop measures 16.22″ (W) x 10.59″ (D) x 1.27″ (min H)/1.47″ (max H) and weighs 6.6 pounds.

You can find the HP G72-251NR notebook computer for around $640.
