HP 630 budget notebook now available

The 15.6-inch laptop launches for only $439

HP has been announcing plenty of high-end laptops and other ultraportables lately, but the latest HP 630 is much more wallet-friendly and down-to-earth.

The 15.6-inch HP 630 is an upgrade from the HP 620, and comes with an Intel 2.13GHz dual-core Pentium P6200 CPU, 4G DDR3 RAM, 1366x768 resolution screen, Intel HD graphics, and a 320GB HDD. A DVD-RW SuperMulti drive is included, as well as a 6-cell battery, for a total weight of 5.5 lbs (2.5 kg).  USB 3.0 ports are absent, but HP was generous enough to include an HDMI port, three USB 2.0 ports, and an SD/MMC card reader. Unfortunately, the laptop is not configurable prior to purchase, so the built-in set of specifications is the only option available for buyers.

The HP 630 is now available here for $439 with a standard 1-year warranty.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
