Sometimes technology can get confusing and unnecessarily complex, even for the technologically literate – these days, laptops can either be extremely basic (with the booming mini-notebook market), or incredibly tricked out and complicated, with laptop models that boast of all kinds of special features and extra gadgets, while also boasting of a pretty hefty price tag.

Thankfully, there are still some trusty laptops that happily fit the bill of being somewhere in between the incredibly basic and overly adorned, such as the HP Pavilion G70-250US. Simple, straightforward and streamlined to near perfection, it is the laptop of choice for those whose laptop requirements are pretty uncomplicated but still require a certain amount of power. The HP Pavilion G70-250US is ideal for basic computing, online communications and entertainment, and with a price tag amounting to only USD 749.99, it’s a pretty good steal.

The HP Pavilion G70-250US does not go cheap on the specs, but it doesn’t unnecessarily spend too much on them either. Stripped to the bare essentials, it boasts of a 17-inch monitor, an impressive 2.0 GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor, 3 GB of RAM and 350 GB of disk space. It also has a dual-layer Lightscribe multi-format DVD drive and runs on Windows Vista Home Premium. In terms of online connectivity, the HP Pavilion G70-250US is Wi-Fi capable with its integrated quad-mode WiFi chip.

As an ideal entertainment and multimedia hub, the HP Pavilion G70-250US runs on Windows Vista Home Premium, which is an ideal operating system for slightly advanced users with some above average requirements. This operating system is especially ideal if you want your laptop to become an all-in-one entertainment and multimedia machine, as it has the complete capabilities of the Windows Media Home Center, making it easy for you to watch all your DVDs and archive your extensive music library. The HP Pavilion G70-250US even comes pre-loaded with the HP MediaSmart Software Suite that allows you to easily manage your media collection – from photos, videos, and music files. The Cyberlink DVD Suite Deluxe is also pre-installed, which is a program that allows you to fix and edit DVDs as well as create CDs and DVDs containing your archived data.

For your basic computing needs, the HP Pavilion G70-250US has the Microsoft Works 9 pre-installed into its system, and it contains a word processor, a spreadsheet, a database and a calendar. For sixty days you can also enjoy a trial version of the Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition 2007, until you decide to have these programs installed and licensed onto your computer.

Overall, the HP Pavilion G70-250US is a no-nonsense, no-frills laptop that’s been stripped down to its essentials just the way we like it, and is definitely a good buy at less than eight hundred US dollars.

Price: Approx. $750
