The ports are absolutely identical with the ones on the Pavilion g7. While the front and rear don't have any interfaces, the right harbors a Kensington lock, a USB 2.0 port and the power socket. The left is dominated by the number 2: Two video outs (VGA + HDMI), two USB 2.0 ports and two audio jacks (headphone + microphone). A card reader and an RJ45 Fast Ethernet LAN port finish the side off.
It's too bad that there is no USB 3.0, FireWire or eSATA. Although a few ports are placed (too) far front, we find the interface distribution good.
Users who want to limit the cable mess to the greatest possible extent can also surf on the Internet via WLAN. The installed wireless module (Realtek RTL8188CE) can deal with the most important WLAN standards. HP doesn't include Bluetooth.
As expected, only the wireless module, the RAM and the hard disk are accessible. After removing two screws, the cover on the bottom can be taken off quite easily. The notebook has to be completely disassembled to clean the fan (whereby the warranty will likely be void).
It quickly becomes obvious that HP relies on the usual standard fare when looking at the screen. 1366x768 pixels are common in the 15 inch range and just right due to the weak graphics performance. However, users who do a lot of computer work or are frequently multitasking should prefer a notebook with HD+ (1600x900), such as the previously tested HP g7, or a Full HD screen (1920x1080).
But back to topic: To say it carefully, users shouldn't have any high expectations on the image quality. The 15.6 inch glare screen with an LED backlight from LG Philips (LP156WH4-TLC1) shows various shortcomings in practical use.
