Reviews

“Its performance is just as beautiful. A high-definition 16-inch screen, along with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD guarantees spectacular visuals. Its Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T6500 and 2 GB of RAM offer hitch-free performance. You can open a mountain-load of windows and simultaneously run applications and this laptop will still be going. Saving a ton of files is possible, too, since this laptop has 320GB of hard drive space to spare.

Its WiFi b/g capabilities, LAN port and 56k modem only mean quality Facebook time. Three USB ports, meanwhile, assures you a headquarters of sorts. Plug away your gadgetry and do a big file transfer party. All in one go. Convenient, yes? But the happiest thing about the G450? It takes security concerns seriously. It has a Veriface tech, which lets you use your face as password. At under P33 grand, the G450 is most certainly a value-packed deal.” (FHM, 2009)
