New Computer: HP G62 Laptop

I had been looking to get a new laptop for the past few months and finally I found one, the HP G62 234DX.  It is a mid-range laptop that I got for $499 at Best Buy. The story of how I got it is worth telling.  So a few months back I found this laptop advertised online, but it was out of stock.  I figured I would wait a few days until it got back in stock.  The next thing I know, the model is removed from the website and there is no trace of it.  I search for information in it online, but there is very little out there.  So I decide to hold off on getting a laptop because there are no other models that I wanted.

Then about a week ago, I check Best Buy online and the computer is back for the price of $499.  This is a great deal for the specs that it comes with.  I notice that it is not available to purchase online, but you can reserve it in stores.  Then I see that it is sold out in most of the local stores.  I manage to find availability at one of the stores not too far away so I add it to the cart and buy it.  It was ready for pick up the next morning.

A day after I go to check it out online again at the Best Buy website, and to my surprise, the price had jumped $200 to $699!  I am so glad I was able to get it at the $499 price. So far I have been pretty happy with the laptop.  You can check out my full detailed review of the laptop here:

Update 4-8-15: It has been almost 5 years and I still use the HP G62 laptop daily.  I spend a lot of time working on the computer and it has held up well over the years.  Haven't had to many issues.  There have been a few hiccups along the way but nothing that could not be fixed relatively easy.  Overall I am satisfied with this laptop and would probably buy another HP again.
