HP ships 209EUR 15-inch laptop

Posted on Monday, May 02 2011 @ 22:20:11 CEST by

FUD Zilla reports HP's Compaq Presario CQ56 15-inch laptop is now selling in Europe for just 209EUR. The specifications aren't too impressive, but it seems like a good deal compared to netbooks. The only thing that's really missing is Windows, to save costs the unit is offered with a Linux distro.
Of course, its design and spec sheet won’t turn heads, but this is beside the point. Just €209 will buy you an AMD V140 processor at 2.3GHz, HD 4250 IGP, 2GB of memory, 250GB of storage and a DVD burner. However, being a dirt cheap entry level model, it does not feature HDMI or a card reader, but most people can do without them anyway. The CQ56 ships with Linux, a 6-cell power pack and it weighs 2.5kg.

Although the spec leaves much to be desired, it delivers truly stunning value for money. Bear in mind that Atom netbooks with 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive sell for €200, so getting a 15-incher at the same price is a rather good deal.
