The HP G71-340US is a business notebook from the HP G70 series. It is in fact the most powerful unit in the series, as it houses an Intel Core 2 Duo processor capable of a 2.2GHz clock speed. The unit also hosts 4GB of RAM, but can easily be upgraded to over 8000MB — enough to power the most memory-intensive applications available on the market.
