a short long story.. my mom bought this laptop for 600 on the sale without my know...

now i am going to check if this laptop is really good.. i just dont want to hurt her feeling about her shopping..

can you please give me a feedback about this laptop.. is this good laptop for 600cdn? i mean i only find this as cheapest price with similar specification... only laptop at me.com offers but just lower specification...

if not then i can tell her to return and get another recommendation that you have..

They have problems clogging up with dust but as long as it is properly maintained it is fine.

oh that dust... no worry.. my mother is cleaner than you thought ;]

sooo how good is this laptop? value?

my mom is not computer expert... she just wants to watch some media on the internet browser and do word or excel for her job... oh course she likes to use skype to see her relationship oversea...

she also didnt carry this laptop outside of the house... so the battery or weight is not big deal...

It's okay I mean she probably could ha e found it a bit cheaper but it should last her 3-4 years if she takes care of it... tell her not to leave it plugged in and on all the time or the battery will be pooched in 2 years.

You have to absolutely baby the laptop if you get a G6. They are extremely plastic-y and the heatsink does clog every easily. Also the fact that the trackpad on most of the newer consumer line HP's are beyond horrible.

With regards to the touchpad, I deal with a wide variety of laptops on a daily basis at work since I do computer repair. Personally I find HP's recent offerings are absolutely horrid (DV5/6/7, 2000, G5/6/7, G56/57/60/61/62), only behind those of the old Dell Latitude D600's. If you get to play with one of HP's ProBooks or EliteBooks, you'll immediately notice a difference. With all that said though, most people haven't really used a nice trackpad. I just figured I'd give a heads up about it.
