HP g62-371dx Laptop with AMD Turion II Review

Powering this system is the AMD Turion II P540 processor.  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.4GHz.  It has 2MB of L2 cache and uses 25W.  A fairly normal 3GB of DDR3 memory comes installed.  It can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB, but probably not necessary for most people.

The screen is a 15.6″ LED high-definition display with HP BrightView technology for stunning clarity.  The resolution is 1366×768 which gives you 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 128MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 1405MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games.

For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) drive rotating at 5400RPM.  That’s the normal drive by today’s standards, and should be enough space for most people.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.   The 5-in-1 digital media reader supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD-Picture Card formats.

For networking you get a 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN adapter for your wired network connections.  On the wireless side you get a standard 802.11 b/g/n adapter.  This laptop comes with a built-in webcam and microphone for easy video chat.

External ports include 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 VGA port, 1 microphone and 1 headphone.  Other features include a Touchpad with integrated on/off button and 2-way scroll pad support.

This HP comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Adobe Reader; Cyberlink PowerDVD and more.

The laptop measures 9.7″ x 14.7″ x 1.4″ and weighs 5.5 pounds.  The 6 cell lithium ion battery pack can provide up to 4 hours of unplugged power.

You can find the HP g62-371dx laptop for around $430.
