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.
