Compaq Presario CQ62-209WM Laptop with AMD Athlon II

This laptop is powered by the AMD Athlon II CPU (model: P320). This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor for notebook PCs. It runs at 2.1 GHz and has 1 MB of L2 cache.  This notebook comes with 3GB of DDR3 RAM and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 15.6″ diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView LED-backlit display with a native resolution of 1366×768. The screen is driven by the AMD M880G Chipset with ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 4250 graphics with 256MB-1405 MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory means the system may slow down during graphically intense operations like games.

For storage you get a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 7200RPM.  Speedy, but not exactly big.  It should be good for most operations, but don’t make this your torrent downloading machine.  The optical drive is a LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support.  This laptop does not have a memory card reader, so hopefully you have a USB adapter.

For networking you can use the integrated 10/100 Ethernet port by plugging a cable into the RJ-45 port.  You can also use the 802.11 b/g/n wireless adapter for free-range Internet access.  If you live in a cave you can use the “high-speed” 56k modem. LOL.

External ports on this machine are pretty limited:  3 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x VGA port, 1 x microphone jack, 1 x headphone jack. Very basic expansion.  It does have Altec Lansing speakers, but don’t expect much from them.

The system comes installed with Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Other software includes HP CrapWare, Cyberlink Power DVD, Cyberlink YouCam, Cyberlink MediaShow, Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student edition (60-day trial).

The laptop measures 14.72″x9.7″x1.25″/1.44″ and weighs 5.5 pounds.

You can find the Compaq Presario CQ62-209WM laptop for around $398.
