Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario CQ50Z
Source: Comp Reviews
Compaq's Presario CQ50Z is very attractive laptop thanks to its really low price. It can be found for under $500 quite regularly. The problem is that consumers give up a lot to get the laptop for so little. Performance is much lower than just slightly more expensive Intel based systems. Even worse is that the system lacks many ports essential for expanding the capabilities of the laptop. About the only other thing going for it are the graphics that are slightly better than Intel's integrated solution, but don't expect to be playing current PC games on it really.

NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G: The 8200 MG is a reduced 9100M G (only Single Channel memory and only PureVideo HD VP2).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Similar to the Turion X2 CPU, but with reduced power saving functions (no deep sleep, only 2 instead of 3 P-states).
