HP Launches Budget g-series Notebooks starting at $449

Consumers looking for budget notebooks will find plenty of style in the just-announced HP Pavilion g-series. The company is merging its current G series with the Pavilion line, making it a bit more sleek and stylish. Best of all, the line starts at the low price of $449, making it very affordable.

The terraced keys on the g-series don’t look as nice as the island-style keyboards on the upscale Envy or dv series, but have a slightly concave shape, making them comfortable to type on. Like the current G series, the new notebooks will have a touchpad that’s flush and indistinguishable from the rest of the keyboard deck. However, a microtexture will let your finger know when it’s strayed too far.

A wide variety of color options will be available–Charcoal Gray, Luminous Rose, Pacific Blue, Pewter, Sonoma Red, and Sweet Purple–though not all colors will be available in all corners of the world.

The g-series will come in three sizes: The g4 will have a 14-inch screen, and start at $499; the g6 has a 15.6-inch screen, and stats at $449; the g7 has a 17-inch screen, and starts at $599.
