Reviews for the HP Compaq NX6125

HP - Compaq nx6125 review
Source: IT Reviews English
Just by looking at the Compaq nx6125, you know exactly who HP is targeting, clothed as it is in its corporate dark grey skin. But before you dismiss it as just another boring business laptop, it does have a few pleasant surprises in store. The first is the price - just £700 including VAT - and then there's the fact that it's thin and light and comes with a fingerprint reader for added security. Helping to keep the price down is HP's choice of processor. Inside the Compaq nx6125 you will find not the usual Intel CPU, but instead one of AMD's Turion64 processors, in this case an ML-32. Rated at 1.8GHz, the ML-32 is draws 35W of power, so helping conserve battery life, and is backed by 512MB of memory which is fast becoming the standard amount on business notebooks.

The HP Compaq nx6125 is a business-oriented notebook using AMD’s Turion 64 processor. It’s the only machine to use an ML-32 version, which runs at 1.8GHz. There’s not much difference between ML and MT processors, apart from the wattage; MLs are rated at 35w, while the MT uses 25w. Like the other notebooks in this group test, the nx6125 has no dedicated graphics chip. Instead it uses ATI’s Radeon Xpress 200M chipset, which scored 512 in 3Dmark and 11.21fps in Far Cry, better than most, and impressive considering the target market. There is 512MB of Ram to play with, which may sound stingy when compared to the Elonex, but what the HP lacks in Ram it makes up for in other areas.

Wenn man ernsthaft arbeiten will, entweder im Studium oder Business, ist dieses Notebook alles was man braucht um einen angenehmen Preis. Die Verarbeitung und die Erweiterungskarten-Slots garantieren viele Jahre nützliche Arbeit. Man kann auch gelegentlich Spiele laufen lassen, allerdings nicht die Neuesten. Als tragbares Büro hat es alles. Bequeme Tastatur und angenehmer Bildschirm, annehmbare Akkulaufzeit, leicht wechselbarer Akku und Reise-Akku-Optionen, eine optionelle Docking Station für Privatnutzer, leicht tragbare Form und Gewicht, die einen nicht daran hindern, das Gerät zu tragen.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X300: The ATI Mobility Radeon X300 is a X600 with a memory bus cut in half (64 Bit). The performance is somewhat above the current integrated graphics of Intel GMA950.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Turion 64: This is a derivative of the Athlon 64 with SSE3 with nx storage protection, 32 and 64 bit support, integrated memory controller for PC3200 memory, mode for low capacity, HT800 and 2 variants ML with 35 Watt and MB with 25 Watt consumption. Regarding the consumption MT might be very similar to a Pentium M. The speed is moderate and approximately as fast as an Pentium M with equivalent clock speed.

15.1": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. The 15.1 inch display is used for the 4:3 format and therefore nowadays hardly used and replaced by 15.4 and 15.6 inch formats. The 4:3 format does not have explicitely disadvantages, rather it is a question of taste. When TV-watching on the notebook it is decisive, in which format the current programm is offered. 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.

2.7 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.
