HP Pavilion g7-2240us
If you need laptop with a big screen and a plenty of storage space for your files, the HP Pavilion g7-2240us might be one of those you are looking for. The 17.3-incher with 1600×900 resolution and a 750GB hard drive also has the Intel Core i3-2370M dual-core processor from the previous 2nd Gen “Sandy Brigde” Intel family, and 6GB of RAM.

This glossy black laptop is rather a desktop PC replacement than a system suitable for carrying around, since it weighs 6.6 pounds and has a big footprint. It’s simple looking, like a typical budget laptop. That’s expected since it belongs to the inexpensive Pavilion g-series.

HP’s g7-2240us can be found for about $600 and that appears to be its main downside, because there are notebooks with much faster CPUs for a significantly lower price. One of the examples is the 15.6″ Asus K55A-HI5103D with a way better 3rd Generation “Ivy Bridge” i5 CPU for $450. If the g7’s big form factor is more important to you anyway, you can also take a look at the g7-2235dx with a similarly fast AMD A8 CPU when compared to the i3 and smaller RAM and HDD, but also lower price of $450.
