17.3 inch Mainstream Notebook
The HP Pavilion g7-1033cl laptops performs as well as the best of its budget priced peers, and while it's not as cheap as some alternatives, Costco includes perks that more than make up for the difference in cost.

The HP Pavilion g7-1002sg is definitely marketed toward bargain hunters at a suggested retail price of only 499 Euro. In exchange, you get a laptop with a large 17.3 screen and a fair amount of choices concerning hardware, all housed in a simple plastic case. The variety of ports is acceptable and the main modes of connecting to the internet are all there. The keyboard and touchpad are rather large but feel a bit flimsy (the keyboard keys have a very short depression depth).

The HP Pavilion g7-1260us is a budget-priced laptop equipped with a Core i3 processor, big screen, and large hard drive, for a fairly low price. It's great, so long as you can accept a limited feature set.
