The CPU powering this laptop is the Intel Pentium P6100.  This is a dual-core processor built on Intel’s Westmere microarchitecture.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and each one runs at 2GHz.  This CPU is built using a 32nm process and only uses 35W. This laptop comes with 4GB DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.  That’s sufficient memory for doing some multi-tasking.

The display is a 17.3” diagonal High Definition+ HP BrightView LED display with a resolution of 1600×900. That’s a 16×9 aspect ratio, and also this display offers native support for 720p content. The screen is driven by the Intel HD graphics system which can use 64MB-1696MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared graphics means you may experience slow downs when doing graphically intensive tasks like games.

For storage you get a 500GB SATA hard drive rotating at 5400RPM . This is a good size, but still on the slow side.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  For that little something extra you can use the 5-in-1 integrated digital media reader which supports SD, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, and xD Picture cards.

For networking you can use the built-in 10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN adapter accessible through the standard RJ-45 port.   For wireless you can use the 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN adapter.

External ports on this HP laptop include 3 high-speed USB v2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, 1 VGA (15-pin) adapter for connecting an external monitor, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in.  Other features include Altec Lansing speakers, a full-size keyboard with integrated numeric keypad, and an integrated webcam and microphone for video chatting.

The laptop comes installed with Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other softwareAdobe Reader, Adobe Flash; Cyberlink DVD Suite and more.

The laptop measures 16.22″x10.59″x1.27″/1.47″ and weighs 6.6 pounds which isn’t too bad for a 17″ display system.  This laptop comes with a 6-cell (47Whr) lithium ion battery pack which can provide up to 5 hours of unplugged power.

You can find the HP g72-c55dx laptop for around $450.
