HP nx6325 Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
Build quality - Well its not to great. Both touch pad buttons broke off. Card slot died. PC card slot eject button will not stay in. One of the arrow keys broke off.. I stole.. i mean found a replacement. Display - Ok now we are getting to the worst part of the computer!. The Res sucks. Its a finger print magnet. If you have the Brightness all the way up you still cant see the display (very well) in normal lighting. BUT THE WORST PART IS: There are lines that run horizontally across the screen! They even show up in screen shots!!

Dual-core workhorse

In the end, the HP Compaq nx6325 comes off as a very competent, if anonymous, notebook PC. As you can probably tell from the tone of the review, it’s very good at a lot of things but isn’t outstanding in any department (nothing here makes you go, "Now that’s cool?"). It’s a workhorse – designed to withstand the daily toil of presentations, balancing accounts and vigorous typing of documents. If that’s what you need, then give the nx6325 a closer look.

80% HP packs its latest notebook with AMD chips but is it enough?
Source: Pocket Lint English
Now, you can run multiple applications at once, including multimedia, and not seen any drop in performance. The HP Compaq nx6325 is the latest budget business machine to pack the power of two cores onto one chip. However, instead of using Intel’s offering, you’ll find the AMD’s Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-52, which is just as effective but comes with the added benefit of being 64-bit. This means you’ll not only get great performance from standard applications but should you run 64-bit ones too, you’ll get decent speed out of those too. Considering the asking price, there is plenty to recommend here. While performance wasn’t as quick as we’d like – opt for more memory at the time of purchase and you’ll be happy – the build quality and battery life more than make up for it. It’s not the perfect business notebook by any stretch of the imagination but if you’re on a tight budget, it’ll be hard to ignore.

Yes the title is right, as some may know HP now own Compaq and whilst new models come out they are badged HP even though the identity says Compaq NX6325. First the size, it is 32.5x26x4cm and weights 2.8kilos. The screen is 30.5x23cm giving the notional 15inch screen size. The left side has LAN port, VGA outlet, 2xUSB2 ports, microphone and headset outputs and PCMCIA and PC Express slots. The front has four small LED's and a single card slot that accepts probably the five most popular card types, SD/MMC/XD/SmartMedia and Memory Stick.

70% It’s not the speed demon we were hoping for, but the first dual-core AMD notebook is an attractive choice for business users on a budget.

Intel’s family of dual-core CPUs has been winning accolades—and buyers—in the business and performance laptop segments. Now AMD fires back with its AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile chip. We got our first look at the CPU in the HP Compaq nx6325. Our take: It delivers solid (though not class-leading) performance and very good battery life—at a price slightly below similar machines powered by an Intel dual-core processor. The charcoal-on-black look of the nx6325 is simple and understated. At just over one-inch thick, the six-pound unit is comfortable to carry.

Comment

ATI Radeon Xpress 1100: The successor of the Xpress M200 integrated shared memory graphic card is based on a x300 core. Aero Glass should run fluently on the card.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-60: First in 90nm, later in 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 1.8 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

2.6 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.
