The HP Pavilion G60-445dx's battery lasted a mere 1 hour and 47 minutes in our battery drain test. That's more than a half-hour worse than HP's G60-235dx, and is significantly below what we'd expect in a mainstream 16-inch laptop. Only the Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8930 performed worse battery-wise, and that laptop has an 18.4-inch screen. In our Juice Box energy-consumption tests, the G60-445dx also cost more yearly to run than our other category laptops, although the differential is no more than a few dollars.
HP includes an industry-standard, one-year, parts-and-labor warranty with the system. Support is accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line, an online knowledge base, and driver downloads. Retail stores offer a variety of extended warranty plans with your laptop purchase, but they're generally expensive, and we do not recommend them.
Note: While this machine comes with Windows Vista, many retailers, including Best Buy, and some hardware manufacturers, are offering a free upgrade to Windows 7 for systems purchased after the end of June.
