HP Quietly Intros G62x Budget Notebook

HP has introduced yet another G62 model to its lineup, the G62x; it joins the G62m and G62t. The G62m is the least expensive at $429.99 and is based on older technology (Core 2 Duo-based processors); the G62t, which was the first G62 model introduced, has a $449.99 starting point and comes with newer Intel Pentium Dual-Core processors and Core i3/i5 options plus optional dedicated graphics; this latest model, the G62x, appears to be exactly the same as the G62t except with a matte black exterior and a better starting configuration — it starts at $529.99.

All of the G62 models are physically the same; they have a 15.6-inch screen, weigh 5.5 lbs., and measure just under an inch and a half thick. HP says they can get up to 5.5 hours of battery life with the included six-cell battery.

The G62x is available now starting at $529.99 after $100 instant savings; the base configuration includes a Core i3-350M dual-core processor, Intel HD graphics, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB 5400RPM drive. ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics are optional. It does not offer a Blu-ray drive like the G62t.
