Reviews for the HP G42-415DX

50% HP G42-415DX
Source: PC Mag English
Either the Gateway NV50A02u or the Dell Inspiron IM5030-874B3D would make a better cost-saving computer choice than the HP G42-415DX; and if you want something with considerably more power (and better battery life), our Editors' Choice, the Acer Aspire AS5742-6475 ($599.99 list, 4 dots), will run you only $70 more than the HP. You may have to sacrifice some design elements for the increased potential, but it might be worth it as they're about all that give the G42-415DX any discernible distinction.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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