Chart Edit

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The HP G4 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst laptops of this age. The average total storage capacity of laptops that came out around the same time as the G4 is 550GB.

We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity notebook PCs to this notebook PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Satellite L50-C[pl_2940571_price], and the Satellite S50-B[pl_2756222_price] both from Toshiba or the HP Pavilion 15[plb_2584084_price] is also worth considering.

Laptops with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Satellite L50-C[pl_3016157_price] (1TB), or the Satellite L50-C[pl_2940572_price] (2TB) both from Toshiba or the Acer Aspire E5-571[plb_2943472_price] (2TB) which is also higher rated.

Across all medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the G4 the worst memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz and the best is 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the G4, the HP G4 has a front camera.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative notebook PCs with a front camera currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price], the HP Pavilion 15-ab040sa[plb_2897982_price], or the DELL Latitude 3540[plb_2887515_price].

13 Reasons Against

Only Two SATA III Connectors

Chart Edit

Only Ten PCI Express Lanes (max)

Most portable PCs that have been around for more than a year have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max), including the HP G4 which has ten PCI Express lanes (max).

Chart Edit

Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port

Most portable PCs of this age and spec have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP G4 which has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.

Chart Edit

Only Two SATA Connectors

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of laptops of a comparable spec and age to the G4 is 290MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 650MHz. The HP G4 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The HP G4 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the G4 which have a full-size keyboard.

It is worth also looking at alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price], the Lenovo G50-45[plb_2886858_price], or the HP Pavilion 15-ab040sa[plb_2897982_price] which also has a higher rating.

Only HDD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many similar spec portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

We compared all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media to this portable PC and we think the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price], the Acer Extensa EX2508[plb_2927460_price], and the HP Probook 470 G2[plb_2925949_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo T540p[plb_2057543_price] (SSD), the DELL Latitude 12 E7250[plb_2885457_price] (SSD), or the HP Elitebook Folio 1020 G1[plb_2891902_price] (SSD) which is also higher rated.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 1.7 gigahertz, the HP G4 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the G4 is 2.2GHz.

We compared all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed laptops to this notebook PC and we think because of it's better review score, the BU201LA[pl_2875941_price], and the F552LAV[pl_2522405_price] both from Asus or the Lenovo G50-70[plb_2707942_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the X240[pl_2939879_price] (1.9GHz), the G50-80[pl_3258707_price] (1.9GHz), or the G50-70[pl_3089734_price] (1.9GHz) all from Lenovo which also has a higher rating.

The internal memory of similar spec laptops that have been around for around the same time as the G4 range from 2GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 6.3GB. With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP G4 has one of the smaller internal memory amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

We compared all the other 4GB internal memory notebook PCs to this laptop and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price], the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon[plb_2749119_price], and the DELL Latitude 3540[plb_2887513_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the 17-g161us[pl_2997241_price] (6GB and higher rated), or the Pavilion 14-ab166us[pl_3010778_price] (6GB and higher rated) both from HP or the Asus X555LA[plb_2998975_price] (6GB and higher rated).

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Most notebook PCs of this age and type do not have a touch sensitive screen. The HP G4 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.

It is worth considering other notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Latitude 15 5000[pl_2804843_price], or the Latitude 12 7000[pl_2867641_price] both from DELL or the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price].

4 Other reasons to consider the HP G4

Released Over a Year Ago

This notebook PC has been on the market for over a year.

Average Screen Size

The HP G4 has a pretty standard screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the G4.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 15.6" laptops currently available including the Probook 450 G2[pl_2941770_price], or the 15[pl_2744324_price] both from HP or the DELL Latitude 15 E5550[plb_2885644_price] which has better reviews.

If this portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL Inspiron 17 5758[plb_2942103_price] (17.3"), the Acer Aspire VN7-791G[plb_3000372_price] (17.3"), or the Lenovo Z70-80[plb_3429896_price] (17.3") which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit
