The HP Pavilion G series notebooks are available at HP, at your local Best Buy or Walmart and from other retailers and as part of the Pavilion line you’ll find basic computing power, essentially a good enough notebook, thanks to a dual core Pentium processor and options for first generation Intel Core i3 processors.

THe HP Pavilion g4 and Pavilion g7 notebooks start at $499 and $529 respectively and come with the dual core and Core i3 processor options. The HP Pavilion g4t and Pavilion g7t notebooks can be found at HP.com and various models will also appear on store shelves with a similar focus on connectivity, color options and SRS Premium Audio.
How the Pavilion G Series is Different:
The HP Pavilion G series sets itself apart from many budget notebook lines by including a collection of colors and premium audio options and making a webcam standard. Many notebooks in this price range make sacrifices including single core processors, bottom of the barrel speakers and no webcam, but with the Pavilion G Series users will get a more full featured notebook.
