Reviews for the HP 655 B6M65EA

76% Review HP 655 B6M65EA Notebook | Notebookcheck
Discount laptop. 300 Euros (~$386) is a ridiculously low price. Is this bargain-basement notebook an uninspiring slab of plastic with outdated technology? The inclusion of the brand new AMD APU at least refutes the latter statement. To find out if there's more to the HP 655, we conduct a thorough review.
