It's the time of year when we all start looking for gifts to buy the folks on our shopping list. That means that along with hoards of new toys and other stuff comes a bunch of new notebook computers that hit the market to lure new buyers for the holiday season. HP is now shipping one of its new budget notebooks called the G62m.
The notebook has a price more like a netbook that some notebooks starting at $429.99. The selling price of the machine can go up significantly from that starting point as options are added with the HP recommended configuration selling for $578.98. The machine has a 15.6-inch screen that is LED backlit. The case is a matte blue color to reduce smears and smudges.
Other features include WiFi, Altec Lansing sound system, a built-in mic, USB 2.0 ports, and a 6-cell battery. There are lots of options for the machine with Celeron CPUs starting at the Celeron 900 and going up to the Celeron T3500. The notebook can have up to 4GB of RAM, up to 500GB of storage, and graphics are via Intel GMA 4500M.
