Compaq Presario CQ62 Vs Compaq Presario CQ43

Compaq Presario CQ62 Vs Compaq Presario CQ43

Here's a comparison of the Compaq Presario CQ62 & the Compaq Presario CQ43, I tried to compare the two laptop in a factual way, things like ram and hard drive which can be easily upgraded are not compared here:

Compaq Presario CQ62 (CQ62-217ax)

  • Screen Size: 15.6" (Big Screen 1366 x 768) (+1, big screen!)
  • Processor: AMD AthlonII P320 Dualcore 2.2Ghz (+1, good speed)
  • Video: Shared graphics (Built into Northbridge) and discreet graphics card (+1 Good graphics!)
  • Keyboard: Funny keys at the left hand side
  • Touchpad: Smooth but no defined edges, touchpad buttons hard to press
  • Portability: A little bigger - More suitable to be placed permanently on the table!
  • Ports: All ports you will expect from a laptop are avaliable including vga output and HDMI (+1, everything you need!)
  • Windows experience index: 5.0 (Graphics is lowest scorer) 

Total score:  4

Compaq Presario CQ43 (CQ43-309au)

  • Screen Size: 14" (Good Screen Size 1366 x 768) (+1, good screen size!)
  • Processor: AMD Acclerated Processing unit Dual Core running at  1.3Ghz
  • Video: Shared Graphics (on die on the APU)
  • Keyboard: Good sized keyboard, no funny keys at the left hand side (+1, easy to use!)
  • Touchpad: Smooth and has defined edges to let you know the boundary of the touchpad, touchpad buttons are big and easy to press. (+1, easy to use!)
  • Portability: Good size and portable (+1, easy to carry!)
  • Ports: No HDMI!!!
  • Windows experience index: 3.4 (CPU is lowest scorer)

Total score:  4

Note: This is a factual comparison of both laptop, there's nothing wrong with the AMD APU processor, it is a good processor on it's own right but it's just slower than the AthlonII P320.

Note: Windows experience index is not graded since graphics and processor speed are already graded!

This is a tie!!!

No winner here! Both are excellent laptop, depending on what are your needs! Get what you want! Good value! for both laptop! Actually I like both!
