Im looking for a laptop that could run the game spore and minecraft smoothly ,and run internet, word, powerpoint and itunes smoothly. I want to pay 700 max and preferably hp with 17 size screen.
I am looking at these laptops
This one i have not tested in store and am a little nervous about because i cant find reviews http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+Pavilion+Laptop+/
And this one which i feel more confident about because i used in store and using canyourunit.com found it could run spore smoothly. But i cant find it online now but i used it in the store today and it was new not refurbished $600 http://www.amazon.com/HP-G72-C55DX-dual-core-Multi
Solved! Go to Solution.

The core i3 is a better processor than the pentium all around. If the specs on the G72 were good enough, the G7 should be even better for you. I would personally choose the HP with the i3.

Unknown, it looks like a new sku in the system. I would recommend calling your local store, and asking them to look up the sku and see if they can find out if they will be receiving some anytime soon.

Your posting caught my attention as the two notebooks in your link are HP notebooks. I work for HP. Even though your posting is marked as solved, I also noticed that you referenced that you could not find reviews for the G7-1070us in the first link. On the limited data received so far, this notebook has received highly favorably reviews. See remarks in the following links:
I see you were wisely advised to contact your local Best Buy store on the availability of the G7. I clicked on your Best Buy link and pretended to create an order. I may be mistaken, but it appears that you can order it online if it is not in your Best Buy local store. The message says it ships in 2 to 5 business days.
