              I get my Notebook (NB) couple weeks ago. Delivery is working very good. No problems at all. NB arrived exactly as expected.
              Price is very good.
              I am using my NB for routine task such as work with OpenOffice, internet sufing, video and audio watching.
              Everything is working fine. NB is fast enough to complete all these tasks. Fast booting. Silent work. Glassy screen does not badder. Nice keyboard.
              What I don't like in this NB: MS Windows 8. Terrible OS.
              no light for NUM LOCK. It's not clear Num LOCK is on or off.
              Light indicator of hard drive task (on the right side of NB) is difficult to watch during work.
              Minimum documentation. The power cord could be longer. (current size arround 6 ft.)
              Camera is very noisy.
              Design could be better. I like design of ASUS.

              Bottom of line I like this NB, but would change OS to Windows 7 or Linux. This is exactly what I did expect for this price.

                      Unfortunately when I unpacked my new HP Pavilion Laptop, I was dismayed to find that the keyboard was faulty. When I tried to enter my email address the shift 2 button did not work which made it impossible to enter the email address.
                      I contacted HP support in Australia, they were very prompt and said they will pick up the laptop to replace the keyboard component, however if no parts available in Australia, they would need to contact HP support in America, this could lead to a delay in the return of my brand new laptop.
                      Very disappointed as I now know that this is a known fault with this model.

                        I'm a Mac guy, but I couldn't resist the price and deal on this one. I got it for my wife for her writing, as her old laptop was SO SLOW! Let's hope that Microsoft doesn't bog this one down too quick with their "critical" updates. Screen is plenty big. A little heavy. Battery life seems pretty good. I think it was a good buy.

                          The HP Pavilion g6-221 notebook is fast with solid sharp picture. I use this computer for my school homework. The things that are great with this machine of mine is the flexibility, very light weight, and can play most DVD and CD'S. To be frank I have never encounter any short coming as of yet on this notebook. Am keeping it for very long time to come.

                          Bloatware and new OS8 confusing and tedious

                          Everything works, including video and audio transfer through with one HDMI cable, not like the HP I bought just a year ago that transfers video only

                          AMD processor is quick and who needs a super-fast processor anyway with internet speeds as they are

                          dual-core.. so far no probs with multi-tasking
