Source: PC World India English
For a budget laptop, the bottomline revolves around its price -- and for Rs. 28,000, the Compaq Presario CQ42-115TU takes the cake with the cherry on top. It is the most inexpensive laptop in our Top 5 Budget Laptops List. The Compaq Presario CQ42-115TU laptop has a fast hard drive with enough RAM, and with an older generation processor gives nearly the same performance as other latest Intel Core i3-based budget laptops (Acer Aspire 4740, Dell Inspiron 15-1564, etc). It also offers very good battery life, and for its selling price the Compaq Presario CQ42 is the best value for money laptop right now.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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.


T4400:

Entry to middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
