70% Compaq CQ58 review - budget laptop offers good value
Source: PC Advisor English
It may be a bit slow, but the CQ58 will get you online for several hours at a time, and let you run Microsoft Office for less than £250.00. We'd recommend stepping up to the 4GB model if you can afford it, but the CQ58 definitely represents good value for money if you're on a really tight budget.

It is just so hard to find anything that is really worthy of purchasing a Compaq Presario CQ58-a10NR. With its $400 price tag, the limited performance and features just don't stack up to just about any other laptop in this price range. Sure, it may have AMD Radeon Graphics which best Intel's options but even AMD A series laptops at this price point have better performance and more features.

HP reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge): Processor graphics card which is integrated in the Sandy Bridge Pentium and Celeron processors. Similar to the desktop HD Graphics 2000 and not related to the old Arrandale processor graphics with the same name.

AMD Radeon HD 7310: Integrated processor graphics card in the Zacate netbook APUs of the 2nd generation (e.g., E1-1200) with an integrated UVD3 video decoder.Technically just a renamed Radeon HD 6310 (1. generation Zacate).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge): In the mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium:

B950:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Pentium brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.

AMD E-Series:

E1-1200: Slow Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards.

Intel Celeron:

1000M: Entry level 1.8 GHz dual core processor with integrated graphics card called Intel HD Graphics and reduced features of the Ivy Bridge core (no Turbo Boost, AES, ...).

Intel Core i3:

3110M: Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, 2.4 GHz core clock (no turbo), includes HD 4000 GPU


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.4 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.5 kg:


62%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
