Reviews for the HP Compaq G60-125nr
Shopping for a laptop under $600 is a bit like going for the half-priced, late-afternoon sushi special at your local deli--there's a certain risk versus reward calculation that has to occur. While it's not going to win any awards for flair or style, this anonymous-looking 15-inch retail model from HP offers the best combination of features and performance in its price range. The $599 HP G60-235DX has a 16:9 display, an Intel Dual-Core CPU (many budget systems use slower AMD chips), and even squeezes in a separate number pad. HP's anonymous-looking G60-235DX is one of the better overall values you'll find on retail-store shelves for under $600.

The HP G60-125NR is one of only a couple of laptops we've seen with a 15.6-inch display. We're seeing more and more 16:9 displays all the time (changing over from 16:10 aspect ratios), but these displays are usually 16 and 18 inches in size. Besides the cinematic display (and a rare separate number pad on a midsized system), there's unfortunately little to recommend about the AMD-powered G60. If you need a 16:9 display in a small 15-inch format, there are cheaper and more powerful choices than HP's G60-125NR.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
T3200: Entry-level dual core processor with a slow performance due to the old Merom core and a small level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
