Black Friday: HP G72-B63NR 17.3″ Notebook for $449

By  |  2 Comments

Another Black Friday Laptop deal just leaked out, this time the 17.3″ HP G72-B63NR notebook from RadioShack which will be on sale on Black Friday for $449 — a savings of $150 off  of retail. This notebook is part of the HP G72 series from HP.

The HP G72-B63NR is a 17.3″ budget computer and a bit more expensive than the first Black Friday laptops we saw from Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon last weekend — but it offers a larger screen that many users may find worth the price.

The HP G72-B63NR has an Intel Pentium 2.0GHz processor, 3GB DDR3 RAM and a 250GB hard drive. The 17.3″ display offers a 1600 x 900 resolution and is powered by an Integrated Intel HD graphics solution. It also comes with a 5-in-1 card reader and a webcam.

This notebook should meet the needs of most home users who are looking for a general use notebook to surf the web, keep in touch with family and friends and edit documents. You won’t be gaming on it, but you should be alright to watch videos as well as do some light photo editing.

Check back on our Black Friday Laptops page closer to Black Friday for our top picks in several price categories.
