HP G60-630us


The HP G60-630us has a bright, colorful display and a winning keyboard, but we expect better performance and better components for the money.

Comfortable keyboard. Bright display.

Sluggish performance. Old technology. Limited feature set.

HP Pavilion G60-445dx review


Editors' note: This review is part of our , covering specific fixed configurations of popular systems that can be found in retail stores.

Good keyboard and touch pad; decent 16:9 screen.

Worse-than-average AMD processor and battery life; no Bluetooth.

For $549, the HP Pavilion G60-445dx has a mediocre processor and performance in a package that's not much of a bargain.

HP G60 (441us)


It's not the fastest notebook around, but the HP G60 (441us) is a good deal nonetheless.

Great price. 16:9 aspect display. HDMI port. Draft-n Wi-Fi.

Sluggish performance. Lacks media player controls.

HP G60-235DX review


Editors' note: This review is part of our Winter 2009 Retail Laptop Review Roundup, covering specific configurations of popular laptops that can be found in retail stores.

Good performance and battery life for an entry-level laptop; 16:9 display; separate number pad.

Bland design; flimsy keyboard, no Bluetooth.

HP's anonymous-looking G60-235DX is one of the better overall values you'll find on retail-store shelves for under $600.

HP G60-533cl


The keyboard has a first-rate typing feel and a separate but smallish numeric keypad (the keypad is only 80 percent as wide as a 17-inch or larger laptop's pad). Certainly the convenience of having the keypad outweighs the minor adjustment of more...

Good keyboard with numeric keypad. HDMI port. Two-year warranty

Low-resolution screen. Integrated graphics

The 15.6-inch HP G60-533cl offers few frills but appealing features, though the laptop's $650 price isn't the bargain it was a few months ago.

HP G60-530us


Once you take their price tags off, you can't tell the HP G60-530us from the G60-533cl without a screwdriver, or at least not without hitting the Start menu, right-clicking on Computer, and clicking Properties. (The 530us has 3GB of memory while the...

Affordable. Attractive display and keyboard. HDMI port

Middling performance. No multimedia controls

This 15.6-inch laptop offers a bright screen and likable keyboard, and adequate performance and battery life.

HP G60t Review


The HP Pavilion G60t is a no frills 16-inch screen laptop powered by an Intel dual core mobile processor. The major appeal with the G60t is the price, it starts at a mere $529.99.
