Hp G62 NotebookMay 29
HP G62 notebook is a series actually of HP and features various notebooks, with similar configuration options and display sizes. The notebooks are average when it comes to internal performance and design. If you don’t have high expectations, the system will suit for basic needs. Overall, the main benefits are the wide range of ports, the fairly good screen and the large hard drive. On the bad side, design is dull and 3D performance is not at all impressive.
The entire chassis is covered in matte black plastic and only when you open it things get a little better. The screen is glossy and there is a brushed aluminum effect on the hinges. But construction feels solid and it can stand up long term use. Having a matte chassis, there will be fewer scratches and you will surely appreciate this aspect. Perhaps it is not the best looking, but it is functional. When it comes to budget notebooks, the range of ports is affected, but not in this case. It has three USB ports, VGA and HDMI, which is a plus, a multi-format card reader, Wi-Fi connectivity and a Gigabit Ethernet port.
The hard drive has enough space for storage, 500GB and you can always use the DVD rewriter to burn some discs. The keyboard is traditional and the keys are flat and raised center, so typing is a nice experience to go through. The 15.6” display has a glossy coating, making it slightly reflective under direct sunlight. The viewing angles are tight, but text and graphics look crisp and sharp. Performance inside is given by Intel Core i3 processor and 3GB memory. This gives enough space for Windows 7 Home Premium to breathe. With integrated graphics you will not be able to enjoy gaming and intense computing, so only the older 3D games will run decently.
As for the battery life, there aren’t any surprises here. You can get around one hour and a half, which is normal for a 15.6” laptop. This does not give road runners to much to enjoy, but it isn’t bad either. To sum up, HP G62 notebook is nothing to jump around for, it isn’t a bad choice, but there are some cheaper competitors out there that can manage the job decently as well. So it is just a matter of preferences and how you see things. If you absolutely desire the notebook, then you know what to expect from it.
