Specs: When it comes to value for money, HP pushes the limit with an ever-new entry-level laptop model. The new HP G61-320US is currently one of the most affordable 15-inch notebook models on the market. This new 15.6-inch model comes with a 2.1Ghz AMD Athlon processor, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), 3GB of DDR2 RAM, and a 250GB hard drive. From its specifications, it is apparent that this model is designed for the average PC user who often uses their laptops to check emails, surf the web, and run moderate / light applications. For graphics rendering, this laptop has an ATI Radeo HD graphics card and it also has a 15.6-inch HD display (1366 x 768 resolution). Some of its other features include an 8x DVD drive, a memory card reader, 802.11b / g wi-fi connectivity, and 3 USB ports.
Design: The G61-320US laptop measures 14.89 x 9.93 x 1.38 inches and weighs 5.9 pounds. The outer case, keyboard, and display bezel have a high-gloss black surface. The area around the keyboard and trackpad, on the other hand, is silver in color, giving the entire laptop a good contrast. Overall, this laptop has a classic and professional look.
Features and performance: Thanks to the highly streamlined Windows 7 and competent set of specs, our experience with this very affordable laptop model was delightful. The 6-cell battery in the HP G61-320US can last up to 4.25 hours on a single charge, which is pretty good for a 15-inch laptop model. The huge HD screen and the very capable Altec Lansing speakers also make watching videos on this laptop a great experience. One of my favorite features on the new G61-320US would of course be its price. At the time of writing, this model retails for only around $ 499 per unit, making it a great buy for anyone looking for an affordable and capable laptop model.
