Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario CQ50Z

40% Compaq Presario CQ50Z 15.4-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English Archive.org version
Compaq's Presario CQ50Z is very attractive laptop thanks to its really low price. It can be found for under $500 quite regularly. The problem is that consumers give up a lot to get the laptop for so little. Performance is much lower than just slightly more expensive Intel based systems. Even worse is that the system lacks many ports essential for expanding the capabilities of the laptop. About the only other thing going for it are the graphics that are slightly better than Intel's integrated solution, but don't expect to be playing current PC games on it really.

Comment

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.

QL-60:

Similar to the Turion X2 CPU, but with reduced power saving functions (no deep sleep, only 2 instead of 3 P-states).

15.40":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

3 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.


HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


40%: This rating is bad and very rare. There are only a few models that are rated so poorly. If the source is reputable, then a purchase is probably not advisable.
