The deal: Compaq 355TU - cheap and powerful basic notebook - $698.00
The Compaq Presario CQ62-355TU is a really superb basic notebook for $698. The source of its computing power is the Intel Core i3-370M (2.4GHz), a fast processor that’s on par with low-end Intel Core i5s. When you’re not watching HD movies or working, the onboard Intel HD graphics along with 2GB of RAM can handle casual games like The Sims 3 on low settings.
A 320GB hard drive won’t store your giant movie collection, but it will fit plenty of word documents and other smaller files. The 15.6in (1,366x768 resolution) screen provides good visual quality, so overall this basic notebook doesn’t cut any corners. It weighs 2.5kg, and measures 36.8mm thick, 246mm deep, and 374mm wide.
Not everyone cares about high-end gaming, and that’s why basic notebooks like the Compaq Presario CQ62-355TU are so great. For $698 you’re getting a strong processor and specs that don’t have any major gaps in them. It’s a very good deal on a hard hitting package.
