Reviews for the HP G62-143cl

70% HP G62-143cl
Source: PC Mag English
The only thing the HP G62-143cl is lacking is a user experience comparable to the one found on the Dell Inspiron 1564 and Samsung R580, but user experience is usually the most subjective area when it comes to reviews. Overall, its parts are up to date, battery life is admirable, and a 2-year warranty is included from a reputable retailer like Costco. If you can part with another $130, the Editors' Choice Samsung R580 is a faster machine and includes a Blu-ray drive.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.


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