Essential-Office. Motherboard in, buttons on, panels attached - ready is a notebook which would definitely suffice for many a buyer. Whether or not the manufacturer makes a squeaking and over-heating plastic box to sell to customers, can be discovered in our test.

80% Review HP 620 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Retro Office. A good office companion doesn't have to have an Intel Core Processor. The HP 620 with the old Pentium generation represents traditional values, such as a matt TFT, good ergonomics and many interfaces. Nevertheless, the 440 euro colleague isn't perfect.

HP 625 review
Source: Techradar English
High-speed wireless connectivity is provided by 802.11n Wi-Fi. Wired networking is poor, however, with 10/100 Ethernet on offer. The HP 625 is a good business laptop with a wealth of features and good usability, but average performance. The only major omissions are its lack of a dedicated numeric keypad and its slow wired networking capabilities.

Comment

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


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

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

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.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

AMD Athlon II:

P320: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.

P360: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.

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.

T4500:

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. 

AMD V-Series:

V160: Entry level single core processor with an integrated DDR3 memory controller. Due to the high clock speed, the CPU should be much faster than Atom CPUs.

AMD Turion II:

P540: Entry level Dual-Core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. Offers a similar performance as a 2.1 - 2.3 GHz Core 2 Duo with 2 MB Level 2 Cache.

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


2.487 kg:

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

2.6 kg:

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


75.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
