HP Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX

 

The Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX covers the basics, and that's really all you can ask for from a $349 laptop.

Rock-bottom price; attractive design; good build quality; offers enough performance for basic tasks and some multitasking; roomy display; comfortable keyboard; Wireless-N Wi-Fi

Single-core processor limits performance; no Webcam; no media card reader; stiff mouse buttons

HP Compaq Presario CQ60-417DX

 

Editors' note : This review is part of our 2009 Retail Laptop and Desktop Back-to-School roundup , covering specific fixed configurations of popular systems that can be found in retail stores.

Decent keyboard and touch pad, good screen, low price.

Slow processor, no SD card reader or Bluetooth.

Saddled with a processor that's bottom-tier, the CQ60-417DX is a budget laptop with the chassis of a superior machine but the guts of an inferior one.

Compaq Presario CQ60-420US

 

Priced at just $529.98 (list), the Compaq Presario CQ60 (420us) is easily one of the most affordable 15-inch notebooks around. This no-frills system won't wow you with multimedia features (it lacks an HDMI port and a webcam, among other things), and...

Very affordable. 16:9 aspect display. Manageable weight

Sluggish performance. Short on features. Does not support draft-n Wi-Fi

The Compaq Presario CQ60 (420us) lacks some of the features found on other 15-inch models, and its performance is nothing to write home about, but bargain hunters will love its sub-$500 price tag.
