Reviews for the HP G60-630us

50% HP G60-630us
Source: PC Mag English
When we reviewed the HP G60-533cl we said that it wasn't a bad deal but there were competing systems that offered more bang for the buck. This time around, we're mostly disappointed. At a time when many affordably priced 15-inch notebooks are equipped with Core 2 Duo, and in some cases, Core i5 processors, the HP G60-630us ($649.98 list, available at Staples) offers up an older Pentium CPU, which predictably puts it squarely behind the performance 8-ball, and its feature set is underwhelming. The HP G60-630us has a bright, colorful display and a winning keyboard, but we expect better performance and better components for the money.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T4400:

Entry to middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.

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.


3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
