My G62 is no more. It would not boot when my google phone (a smart phone was plugged in) and would lock up from 3 minutes to about 45 minutes later without fail with the phone plugged in. HP was given every chance to correct this issue and finally gave up.
This does not bode well for HP in general but this issue seems confined to the G series with intel CPUs.
I have a dv6 with a core 2 duo and many other machines at the offices which are fine.
Since HP can not result such issues on the G series I may have to always pan that line.
I debating between 2 laptop HP models. Both I found through Black Friday Deals and are the same price. HP G72-B66US (staples) or HP dv6-3127dx (best buy). Both seem to have basically the same features. The G72 has a bigger screen and is obviously heavier. I can't find a whole lot of info on the dv6 besides what's written on the Black Friday Best Buy ad. Anyone have any advise as to which one is a better laptop? Only need the laptop for home use, email, word, no gaming.
