54% HP Pavilion G60-445dx
Source: CNet English
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.

60% HP G60-438nr 16-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Oct 8 2009 - HP's G60-438nr is a special retail version of their G60 laptop that features a very low $500 price tag. What they have done is modify a few of the components put into the system to try and reduce the costs. This gives it a little less space and not as robust wireless networking compared to previous models. Still, if you don't require these features and want a laptop with a larger screen, the G60-438nr works just fine as a general purpose laptop.

HP reviews


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

NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G: The 8200 MG is a reduced 9100M G (only Single Channel memory and only PureVideo HD VP2).

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.

RM-75:

Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).

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.

T4200:

Entry 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. 


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg:

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

3 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


57%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
