Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario V6620US

80% Compaq Presario V6620US Budget Notebook PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Compaq's new Presario V6600 line of notebooks is essentially identical to the HP Pavilion dv6600 line of notebook PCs. This is useful to know as consumers can pretty much look at either of the two models and be getting the exact same system. Powering the Presario V6620US notebook computer is the AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-55 dual core mobile processor. This is a fairly strong offering from AMD that will work well for most computing tasks, but it isn't as energy efficient or powerful as the newer Intel Core 2 Duo processors starting to make it into the lower cost notebooks. The one gigabyte of PC2-5300 DDR2 memory is average for the market segment and lets it run Vista Home Premium alright, but don't expect to be multi tasking much without upgrading. Storage is very strong for the budget oriented Presario V6620US. The system ships with a very large 160GB hard drive that is double the size of most notebooks in this price category.

15.4": 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. 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.


2.6 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.
