Well First let me tell you that I have been selling computers and accessories for around 5 years know in the major retail U.S. stores.
Having said that I think the Hp G70 is a Good Value. But I know there are two Versions the Intel's and the Amd's (processor)
The Amd's come with a Graphic card, but I myself preffer the Inlet based processors.
The reason I am not to happy with HP is because they put a lot of junk :
on the operating system, which means (Unless you remove the stuff)
you have a very slow computer because there software always is on.
A laptop around that price that is decent will be like the dell's, or if you can get your hans on a good toshiba.
For that price you will get all you need as far as System specs go: Dual Core, around 4Gb ddr1 or 2, and a 320-500GB hard drive.
And a tip: Really look into the computers that are in the ADS. Those are the best deals. As a employee we have to do a bait n switch
I also suggest not to get the warranty, cause every time one of my custumers brings a laptop we tell them the same thing>Ohhh, yea thats not covered
So take your time don't get rushed into anything and just get what you need. Don't buy antivirus, cause it's free.
To answer your Quest> Dell's, Toshibas, Hp, and Lenovo's (but that is just my opinion, this is like music we can never agree)
