+12 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of laptops of this spec and age is 1.7GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 11GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 2 gigabytes, the HP G4 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many similar spec portable PCs that were launched more than a year ago. 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.
Alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might also want to consider include the Acer Aspire E5-573[plb_3007094_price] which is cheaper.
If the storage medium of this laptop is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the DELL Latitude 13 3340[plb_2751294_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz. The HP G4 has a quite slow processor clock speed (only 1.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
If you want a laptop with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire S3-391[plb_3007628_price] (1.9GHz), the HP Probook 430 G2[plb_2913674_price] (1.9GHz), or the Lenovo G50-80[plb_3347289_price] (1.9GHz).

This laptop has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on notebook PCs of this spec and age.

The average internal memory of laptops of this spec and age is 6.3GB. With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP G4 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the G4.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 4GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkPad E550[plb_2741911_price].
If this medium processor core notebook PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba C55[plb_2942232_price] (6GB), the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_2911178_price] (8GB), or the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2941676_price] (8GB).

The HP G4 has one of the smaller battery capacities (only 31 watt-hours) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The battery capacities of notebook PCs of this age and type range from 23Wh to 120Wh, and the average battery capacity is 46Wh.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Like most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year, the HP G4 does not have a touch sensitive screen.
We think you might also be interested in other portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the DELL Inspiron 15 5558[plb_3008314_price].
Only Three Battery Cells
The HP G4 is a three battery cell count portable PC. Most of the other laptops of this type and age have between two and eight battery cells.

Average Screen Size
The HP G4 has a pretty standard screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the G4.
We compared all the other 15.6" portable PCs to this notebook PC and we think because of it's better review score, the HP 350 G2[plb_2889567_price] is also worth considering.
If this portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire E5-772[plb_2984402_price] (17.3"), or the Lenovo Z70-80[plb_3429896_price] (17.3").
