Black Friday Laptop: HP G62-347NR 15.6″ Dual Core AMD Notebook $349 @RadioShack

Another Black Friday Laptop deal just leaked out, this time the 15.6″ HP G62-347NR notebook from RadioShack which will be on sale on Black Friday for $349 — a savings of $175 off  of retail.

The HP G62-347NR is a 15.6″ budget computer and a bit more expensive than the first Black Friday laptops we saw from Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon last weekend — but it offers a better value in terms of performance. The HP G62-347NR has a dual core AMD Athlon II processor, 3GB DDR3 RAM and a dedicated ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4250 GPU. It also comes with a 320GB hard drive, 5-in-1 card reader and has a webcam.

This notebook should meet the needs of most home users who are looking for a general use notebook to surf the web, keep in touch with family and friends and edit documents. You won’t be gaming on it, but you should be alright to watch videos as well as do some light photo editing. If you’re patient you could probably do a small amount of video editing for uploading clips to YouTube.

We expect to see similar offers from other retailers as the HP G62 is a very popular Black Friday Laptop. Keep you eyes peeled for other dual core laptops in this price range as more ads are leaked and be sure to check out the 10 Things to Know Before you Buy a Black Friday Laptop or Netbook.
