HP G61-429WM Laptop with AMD Sempron Processor

The processor in this laptop is the AMD Sempron M120. This is a single-core, 64-bit processor running at 2.1GHz. It has 512KB of L2 cache and built on a 45nm process.  It’s not exactly the fastest thing on the market. This system comes installed with 3GB of DDR2 memory and can be expanded to 4GB.

The screen on this machine is a 15.6″ diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768. The screen is driven by the ATI® Radeon™ HD 4200 graphics engine with up to 1534 MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory means the system could slow down during graphically intensive applications (like games), but with this processor you won’t be running many newer games.

For storage you get a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 7200RPM.  That’s on the smallest size for current hard drives, so you might want to keep that in mind before buying this one.  The optical drive is a LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support.  The 5-in-1 media reader supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD-Picture Card formats.

For networking you can connect an Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 connector and get 10/100 speeds.  For wireless you can use the integrated 802.11 b/g/n adapter.  This laptop also sports a modem if you want to surf the internet at 1995 speeds.

External ports on this machine include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 headphone out, 1 microphone in, 1 HDMI, and 1 VGA port.  This laptop does not include a built-in webcam so you’ll have to get an external webcam if you want to do any video chatting.

This laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition.  Other software includes Symantec Norton Internet Security 2010 60-day Trial, HP Assistant, HP PC Recovery, HP Advisor, Rhapsody Music Store, eBay, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Cyberlink Power DVD, Cyberlink DVD Suite, Adobe Reader; Adobe Flash,
HP Games Powered by Wild Tangent, Cyberlink MediaShow, Microsoft Works, Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student 60-day Trial, Microsoft Silverlight, Sun Java.

The laptop measures 14.89″x9.93″x1.38″/1.62″ and weighs 5.9 pounds.

You can find the HP G61-429WM for around $400, but you can find better laptops at that price.
