Good points:
You get alot of hardware for the price
Bad points:
Only had this laptop HP G56-130SA for 8 months and the hard drive as already died and needs to be replaced,lucky for me its still within the 12 months warranty so hopefully i should get it repaired for free.The laptop was very well looked after with very little use so for a hard drive to fail in such a short time is not good !
Also became very slow to load/boot after a while but at least it worked...now its just dead.I will not buy a HP laptop again.

Adam, Doncaster Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
After having my orignal one replaced due to a fan problem I have had no problems whatsoever with the replacement. No doubt this is the best laptop out there for value for money at the moment and offers great speed and graphics proformence even if its a shared memory built in card. Sound quality is aceptable and the keyboard is great!
Bad points:
The batterey life is poor but expected from a high proformence laptop. The on/off button feels cheap and can be hard to press also the mouse pad buttons are a right pain.
