Should i be disappointed with this laptop?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My brother got this hp g7 today. I was hoping that it would play minecraft pretty good and do everything his desktop did. His desktop has an asus m3n?? business class motherboard with a 9950 and 4gb ddr2 1066 and a gtx260 core 216. I ran superpi 1m and linx on both his desktop and the laptop. Desktop scores 25gflops and 31secs for superpi. Laptop scores 16gflops and 33secs superpi. He was kinda on a budget (600) max and the laptop was 450 so he figured it was good. Is this going to run as good as his desktop? Should he return it and get something else?
My wallet is sad.

Well being HP and their history (from personal experience) of unreliable laptops, yes. Actual hardware wise with that price, no. By the looks of the hardware for the price it's a good laptop thumb.gif

A6 integrated is not even close to a GTX 260, nor a desktop 8800GT. If he wants as much performance, Nvidia 540M or AMD 6650M with an A6 is minimal.

For $600 or less, it's hard to find much. Definitely go with an A8 though, it has 25% more SPs than the A6. There should be some A8 17" laptop for under $600 certainly.

Not going too be powerful as the desktop but it will do fine in games, I just bought a hp dv7 17.3in laptop with the a6 a month ago and it handles every game pretty good even at native res at 1600x1200, You wll get some hiccups there and there with everything on max settings but i was surprised how this laptop handled everything which i mostly ony bought the laptop for movie viewing and the battery life which is great on these a6 laptops if you have a 9cell battery. Which i get like 7 too 9hours of battery life:) And yes im a heavy gamer and also have other gaming laptops.


Didint try minecraft yet on it but im sure it will play it good. Will try it later on and post back.


Build quality seem great too well it is on this 17.3 dv7:)
