The review unit is for the HP g6t-2200 specific model with Intel B980 and Radeon 7670M. Now the HP g6t-2200 available comes with the Intel I3-3110M + Radeon 7670M combination, no choice there. This is actually a good combination for a sub-500$ gaming laptop as you get the HD4000 integrated GPU (with lower clocks) that will handle simple tasks of video playback. The Radeon 7670M, on its end, will give you the gaming power you need for moderate gaming.
According to the review, the temperatures of the g6t-2200 are actually very good, maxing 30C under full load – these are excellent readings and are much better than other laptops, like the Acer V3-551G with AMD A10 and Radeon 7670M too (review) or the Lenovo Z585 with A10-4600M and Radeon 7670M too (review).
Moreover, the 768p display, however still only not high quality, do have very good sRGB color coverage and high contrast making it even more interesting as even higher priced laptops with 768p (that sometimes even sold as a “premium” laptops) are of a lesser quality.
That’s all. I really think that currently, the HP g6t-2200 is a very good option and probably my favorite under 500$. For more options, please check the sub 500$ gaming laptops recommendations. Note that I still listed the HP dv6z-7200 which is still a very good option and probably more feature-rich, only the total price is above 500$ including tax and shipping.
