Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario CQ62-220US

40% Compaq Presario CQ62-220US 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Compaq's Presario CQ62-220US may be a very affordable laptop with a price of $500 but there are enough quirks to it that users would be better served by spending just a bit more. Performance is decent from the AMD processor but it still lags behind Intel's offerings. The lack of features such as HDMI, a webcam and media card reader are all significant and can be found on most other laptops just $50 to $100 more.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

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

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.


2.5 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.
