Reviews for the HP Pavilion G60-445dx
The HP Pavilion G60-445dx should look familiar--that's because we reviewed a similar (and similarly named) dual-core HP Pavilion in our winter roundup, the HP Pavilion G60-235dx. Admittedly, that one came with an Intel T4200 Dual-Core processor.
For $549, the HP Pavilion G60-235dx has a mediocre processor and performance in a package that's not much of a bargain.

NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G: The 8200 MG is a reduced 9100M G (only Single Channel memory and only PureVideo HD VP2).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.
Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).
