Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario CQ61-420us

60% Compaq Presario CQ61-420us 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
The Compaq Presario CQ61-420us is a very attractive budget laptops thanks to its very affordable price tag. Those looking for a basic full sized laptop system, it is a tough price to beat. Be aware that the system does sacrifice a number of features and performance compared to slightly more expensive laptops. Still, for some that don't need much it may fit their needs.

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

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