Review HP Compaq Presario CQ62 Notebook

 

Simply Office. Simple mainstream notebooks with a 15.6 inch display and low entry prices are very popular. Plain design, glossy display and AMD hardware promise a good value for money ratio. Convincing office device or second choice?

High-end workmanship and elegant design, Robust surfaces, Generous keyboard, Office Performance, Convincing emissions, The well manufactured plastic and prism texture that provides a high-end feel. The office performance is convincing

Yielding wrist-rest, No multi-touch support, TFT not AR coated, Average display rates, Poor 3D performance, Short battery life, A matt display would have improved the rating and especially the 15.6 inch notebook's usability significantly

HP Compaq Presario CQ62-215DX

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2010 retail laptop and desktop back-to-school roundup , covering specific fixed configurations of popular systems that can be found in retail stores.

Affordable; updated and attractive design and good build quality; offers enough performance for basic home use; roomy display; comfortable keyboard; 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Very stiff mouse button is uncomfortable to use; single-core processor lags behind slightly pricier dual-core laptops; no Webcam; no media card reader; touch pad doesn't support multitouch gestures.

Sluggish performance is usually the deal breaker for an entry-level laptop, and though the single-core Compaq Presario CQ62-215DX is far from a speed merchant, its biggest flaw isn't a lack of power but rather the finger power it requires to depress...

Compaq Presario CQ62-225nr

 

For an entry-level laptop, the Compaq Presario CQ62-225nr ($499.99 list), available at Staples, has a lot going on. It offers a roomy 15.6-inch display, a full-size keyboard, and a modern dual-core processor. It also boasts a design that belies its...

HP's new laptop design trickles down to this entry-level Compaq model. Quiet operation. Fair performance for the price. Respectable battery life

No Webcam. No media card reader. No HDMI or eSATA ports. Squeaky keys and stiff mouse button

If you can accept a couple of missing features and a squeaky keyboard, the entry-level Compaq Presario CQ62-225nr may win you over with its pleasing design, quiet operation, respectable performance, and decent battery life.

Expert Review

 

If you need a very inexpensive laptop, the CQ62 is not a bad bet. It's missing some features, but it delivers decent overall performance considering it costs less than $400.

Remarkably low price, Large screen, Passable performance for the money, Reasonably attractive design

No memory-card slot, Webcam, or HDMI port, Stiff mouse buttons, Narrow LCD viewing angle, Limited availability

HP Compaq Presario CQ62-220SA review

 

A solid budget portable that offers good value for money

Solid build ; Portable ; Touchpad is spacious and responsive ; Impressively strong sound ; Good connectivity

Integrated graphics renders HD videos unplayable ; Boring design ; Battery life isn't great ; Shortcut keys are easily hit by accident

HP Compaq Presario CQ62-116TU

 

The Presario CQ62 is a decent, but unexciting laptop that doesn't stand out enough to make it a must-buy system.

Comfortable keyboard

Trackpad sits flush with the wrist rest ; Bland style ; Average battery life ; Better alternatives exist near this price point

We liked the cheaper CQ42 despite its flaws precisely because it was cheap and fills a niche that neither iPad-style tablets or netbooks currently serve. That's roughly the positioning for the CQ62 as well, but its AU$999 price tag, combined with the...
