HP Pavilion G60-445dx

 

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.

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)

 

Choosing a budget notebook usually requires a sacrifice of some sort, be it a stripped-down feature set or subpar components. With the G60 (441us) ($599.98 list), HP delivers a compromise that you can live with. This mainstream notebook offers a nice...

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

Sluggish performance. Lacks media player controls

The HP G60 (441us) is an affordable mainstream notebook featuring a bright 15.6-inch screen and a decent feature set. It's not a great performer, but the price is right.

Expert review by:

HP G60-443CL

 

The G60 weighs 6.2 pounds, which is manageable for short hauls but may be a bit too heavy for longer trips. The 15.6-inch display has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 and a 16:9 aspect ratio, which means it'll display high definition (720p) movies in...

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

So-so performance. Lacks media player controls

The HP G60-443CL is an affordable mainstream notebook featuring a bright 15.6-inch screen and a decent feature set. You won't get blazing performance from this notebook, but it'll handle your everyday workload and comes with a two year warranty...

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.

Expert review by:

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.

Expert review by:

HP G60-630us

 

It's hard to recommend the HP G60-630us given its lackluster performance and relatively stingy feature set. Sure, it can handle your basic home productivity and multimedia tasks, and its $650 price tag is certainly enticing. However, there are plenty...

Comfortable keyboard. Bright display

Sluggish performance. Old technology. Limited feature set

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

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.

Poor Quality

 

I purchased this computer from Office Depot in May, 2009. It is for personal use and is well taken care of. The first year the battery died and the hard drive crashed. The second year the LCD died. All of these were replaced under warranty. Just after...

Easy to work on, numeric keypad is great

Lots of part failures: battery, hard drive, monitor (twice),camera

Consumer review by:

"Nothing but trouble, do not buy this laptop."

 

Had problems within 6 months of purchase. Laptop was running hot all the time and occasionally froze. It finally crashed and I had to reset to factory settings, causing loss of all data on the hard drive. HP support honored the warranty and sold me...

Nice screen

Overheats despite replacing fan, power supply and upgrading BIOS

"Amazing Paperweight!"

 

UGH!!!! I had my last laptop ( a Dell inspiron) for 9, yes 9, years, while I did upgrade and replace certain things, it lasted. I bought the HP G60-445Dx as a replacement and have had numerous issues since I opened the box. Light scribe worked alright...

Lightscribe, number pad, screen size, WiFi

overheats, poor battery life, short life for model overall
