My G62 will not boot when my HTC EVO is plugged in. There is some indication this is a BIOS bug in the HP G series so test for that but BEFORE YOU BUY the HP or Acer.
This bug extends to random lockups in the HP G62 and other in that series so do the boot test before you decide.
I am upgrading from my Dell Vostro 1000 Laptop and need some advice.
After doing my online research I have narrowed it down to the following laptops:
HP G72-B66US 17.3" Laptop ($550)
Acer Aspire AS5745-7247 15.6" Laptop ($649)
The specs are very close and obviously there is a $100 difference between the two. I will be using the laptop mainly for music and video playing and web surfing. I do not use MS Office applications much except for MS Word and this only for writing letters and such.
I was going back and forth on getting an iPad or a Samsung Galaxy tablet but I already own an HTC EVO which fills my portability need even though I am not that happy with paying the
monthly fee(s) that I pay Sprint.
All of this being said...
Any advice, comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
