Reviews for the HP G32-240US

60% HP G32-240US 14-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English

HP's G42-240US may be a very affordable and more compact laptop but it does feature some quirks. Performance is good from the Turion II processor and the faster 7200rpm hard drive but the battery life falls a bit short of the competition. The trackpad and keyboard design will also confuse some users making it more difficult to use. Still, it is a decent system for those wanting to spend under $600

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.

P520: Entry level Dual-Core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. Offers a similar performance as a 2.1 - 2.3 GHz Core 2 Duo with 2 MB Level 2 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
