HP G700 similar to HP G6000

Hi there,

 

i recently bought an old HP G7000 and want to replace its shell / body.

 

I found an empty G6000 shell on eBay but can't figure out if i can easily stuff all G7000 intestines in there?

 

Help would be appreciated, thanks in advance :smileyhappy:

Not a chance. The motherboard mounting points are going to be different, at a minimum.

When they do a new model it is all new plastic. I do note the Presario C700 is basically the same model which should give you a bit bigger target to shoot at.

 

Here is the bottom plastic on ebay:

And here is the top cover/palmrest:

Sure, check partsurfer here on this site but word to the wise it is going to cost an arm and a leg.

 

Try this link:

 

It appears HP is sold out of the G7000 top cover with touchpad right now:

Re: HP G700 similar to HP G6000

thank you so much :smileyhappy:

 

i think this part number will help me alot in my search. though first results appear indeed to be very costly.. 120$ and up? i paid 35$ for the whole laptop..

 

but on a positive note i just disassembled it successfully, cleaned it and found out i can detach the touchpad from the rest. which is the main reason i want to replace the top cover.
