HP G62-367DX Laptop with AMD Turion II Review

Powering this system is the AMD Turion II N530 processor.  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.5GHz.  It has 2MB of L2 cache and uses 35W.  It also features AMD VISION technology.  A normal 4GB of DDR3 memory comes installed in the form of 2 DIMM chips.  It can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB, but probably not necessary for most applications.

The screen is a 15.6″ diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView LED display with a resolution of 1366×768.  That gives the display a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p HD content.  The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card.  This has 256MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 1917MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games.

Storage comes in the form of a 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That’s plenty big enough to handle your music, photos, games and more.  The optical drive is a LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer support. The 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader supports Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, or xD Picture cards.

To get connected you get the very basic options with this laptop.  A 10/100 Ethernet LAN port accessible through a standard RJ-45 connector provides the wired network connection.  On the wireless side of things you can use the built-in 802.11 b/g/n adapter. This laptop does  have a built-in webcam, so video chatting is a breeze.

External ports include 3 USB 2.0 ports for connecting peripherals, 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, 1 15-pin VGA port for connecting an external monitor, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in.  Other features include Altec Lansing speakers, a Kensington MicroSaver lock slot for security and a 101-key full-size keyboard with One touch launch keys and action keys.

This HP comes installed with Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition. Other software includes Symantec Norton Internet Security 2010 60-day Trial, Cyberlink Power DVD; Cyberlink YouCam; Cyberlink MediaShow, Cyberlink DVD, Roxio CinemaNow; Snapfish Picture Mover; HP Photo Creations, Microsoft Office 2007 Home & Student 60-day Trial, Adobe Reader and more.

The laptop measures 14.27″x9.70″x1.25″/1.44″ and weighs 5.5 pounds.  It comes with a 6-cell (47WHr) Lithium-Ion battery and a 65W AC adapter.

You can find the HP G62-367DX laptop for around $430.
