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.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
